My wedding package included mine and fiance's flowers. I was going to use pin wheels to save on cost for the BMs but when I asked for a quote it came back at $22 for the BM for 3 Gerbers so I went for it. Hehe my splurge.
My centerpieces candles are only those mini white pails (people use for favors) and I found at dollarama for $1.25 for 3. Needed 18. I have enough votives at home to put in them. Also blinged them out for $1.50 at michaels.
Will use pink picture frames for table numbers. $3 each at michaels and then scatter shells on the tables. $1 a bag at dollar store. I got one extra BM bouquet and will use theirs for my centerpiece flowers.
Super cheap, non breakable and beachy!
I made my daughters own flower girl pail. $6 pail which I painted while and tied ribbon on. My sons is a shell to hold rings. $5 at michaels.
For favors we went with maracas which were $1.65 per pair at Amols. Will buy a pen to personalize. Also making luggage tags.
Anything DIY will be cheaper. Once you have your ideas search on here how to do it/find templates.
I am not doing OOT bags to save $$. But have decided to do a pre travel letter. I also had a strict budget for bridal party gifts.
Edit: I'm trying to stick in my budget and be frugal wherever I can but also realize it only happens once. I will bend on things that really matter but not on others. It's a tough balance.
