Thrifty Thursday!

Wedding invitations on the cheap!

Invitations are something that couples can spend a lot of their budget on, with printing and posting you can end up spending a few hundred on invitations and stamps!

Why not try these simple ideas and save your money for your honeymoon!

Get creative

With technology everywhere these days, why not take advantage and use Whatsapp or emails to send your invitations! Think of something creative like go to a beach and draw a love heart in the sand and write the date, time and venue in the love heart, take a picture and email or Whatsapp it!

Make your own invites

If you do want to post an invite there are cheap options for making your own invites if you don’t mind paying for the stamps! 😀 Take these beautiful invites from Tara and Daves wedding for example!! The main material used in this invite was hessian/burlap sack, cut into card shape and card was glued onto the front of it, a tartan ribbon was wrapped around it that was  to match the grooms kilt!

Thrifty Thursday! Looking do to something different on your wedding day??

Key to a successful marriage

This project is affordable and gives an alternative to a wedding guest book! This idea can be done in different variations to make it unique to you.

For this project you will need:

  • Antique style keys
  • Paper card
  • Small hooks
  • Twine
  • A board or frame(with glass removed)
  • Scissors
  • Hole puncher
  • Pens (gold and silver to add a bit of colour!)
  • Chalk board to explain what you want your guests to do!

This project doesn’t cost much and will give your wedding day a unique and fun touch!

Step one:

You can use a gift tag that you have lying around at home or a stencil to cut out the shape you want on the paper card to create your tags.

Step 2:

Use the hole puncher to make a hole at the top of the prepared tags.

Step 3:

Feed the twine through the hole to make a loop and tie.

Step 4:

Count the number of guests attending and screw in the amount of hooks required into the board or frame.

Step 5:

Hang the tags off the hooks and you’re good to go!

Don’t forget to leave pens for the guests to use! 😉
