Gather vases from a thrift store or around your friends and families' homes to save a little money.

2) Rustic Display

Twine and lace can be wrapped around any vase, wine bottle, or can to give a rustic touch for your big day. Also mason jars filled with baby's breath flowers are a simple way to decorate your tables, without spending a ton of money!

3) Serve Wedding Favors

A cake or serving tray can be placed on each table, filled with favors for your guests to take home. Consider spray painting serving trays to match your wedding color or theme, for a uniform look! This is a great way to encourage your guests to take their goodies, when they leave your reception.

With all those empty wine bottles hanging around, utilize them for your decor. Wrap the bottles in fabric, lace, twine, or a number of other material to match your wedding theme. This is an easy way to reuse your empty bottles and adds a personal touch to your reception.

7) Tree Stump Stand

Trying to add a natural look to your big day? Consider cutting slices of tree to place on the center of your tables. Then you can stack pretty candles, flowers, or filled vases on top of this tree stump.
