Antique shutter screen with seating cards - I attached vintage skeleton keys to tags and hung them on the shutters with mini-clothespins. The shutters were hinged together using basic hardware from Home Depot.
Program fans - I made silhoutettes of my husband and I, and a friend helped design the border on the front. I printed 100 fronts, cut them out, and glued on the handles. Then I designed and printed and cut out the backs of the programs, and glued them on.
I bought cheap, plain cocktail napkins and goccoed on the heart that we used throughout our wedding.
I used the same silouettes in frames that were placed at our seats, and on the favors.
I made all of the cake stands. The wood ones are made from plaques from Michael's and sawed-off stumps from branches we found in our neighborhood. The milk glass plates and candlestick holders were found at thrift stores.
I made burlap runners and layered over 90 feet of hand-sewn doily runners overtop. This took FOREVER - from start to finish, maybe 50 hours (probably more). All of the doilies are antique.
I cut, ironed, hemmed, goccoed and sewed 100 napkins. The napkins were folded with the menu placed inside.
The bunting and bar were also DIY. I cut burlap triangles and lined them with lace and glued them on twine. My husband build the bar after we couldn't find one that we liked to rent.
I made sparkler-holders for the end of the night. Packs of matches were rubber cemented on the front and I tucked 3 sparklers in each package.
I also DIY-ed all of the flowers!
