These tiny plastic frames are a bargain and can be used all over the wedding to share messages (like in the shot at top from IKEA via My Little Secrets, or above without a paper insert in a wedding from Ruffled) or, you know, photos.

The complete guide to modern weddings.

MÅLA easel, $14.99

A child’s easel makes the perfect wedding signage, with a little shelf for flowers or anything else, like in this bash from Style Me Pretty.

SKURAR candle holder, $2.50

Use these lacy votives as is, or embellish them with a bit of spray paint with instructions from The House that Lars Built.

ELLY dish towels, $3.99/4 pack

These look a heck of a lot more chic than plasticky rented napkins for right around the same price (you can get two dinner napkins from each towel), just check out this Style Me Pretty wedding.

BLOMSTER candle holders, $15.99

Chic and elegant, straight out of the box (and you’ll save some dough on flower centerpieces). Here they are (along with short IKEA votives) in a wedding on Ruffled.
