    Wedding Reception help!!

    Advertisements
    We are going vintage themed. I'm trying to think of cute wedding favors and center pieces ideas that are relatively cheap and maybe some DIY ideas considering it's less than 2 months away!

    Thanks ladies!

    How many tables are you having to do with center pieces? Do you want tall or short?

    weddingchicks.com has some great DIY ideas!
    Never do anything halfway unless you want to be half happy.

    Is this a dream? If it is, please don't wake me from this high. I'd become comfortably numb
    until you opened up my eyes to what it's like when everything is right...I can't believe you found me ♥

    You could eat a lot of soup between now and then and use the coffee cans as flower holders. Just find some vintage labels and hot glue them over the soup can labels:

    Mason jars are also vintage IMO and you can do a LOT with them:

    Could fill them 1/2 way with water and get some floating candles (can dye the water your wedding colors).... Can use them to hold flowers... Can wrap/fill them with lace or pearl strands or something else from your wedding...

    Can get some tall glass jars and some branches and hang smaller jars from it...

    Depending on how many favors you have to make, you could use the mason jars for the centerpiece and keep that a consistent theme...

    If you have ever made cake in a jar, you could find mini mason jars and make your favorite cakes in the jar, seal them, and then just get a cute tag with your names and wedding date and tie that on with ribbon.

    And seal them with something like this: DIY Wedding Favor Ideas: Cupcakes in a Jar | Elizabeth Anne Designs: The Wedding Blog

    I thought this might be a cute idea. They are vintage wedding photo magnets. You might be able to make these on your own.

    These are nice too..

    Maybe since its going to be in an old train depot maybe you could also give away luggage tags for your favor. If you are having a sit down dinner you could also use them as place cards by putting the guests name in where the "owners info" would go.
