Really curious to see where everyone got their Ceremony Accessories from? I am debating on going with a set that is beautiful & at a higher price or a set from a lower priced store, but still pretty cute! I guess what I am wondering is….did you go all out expensive for your ceremony accessories or did you keep it simple but pretty at a reasonable price??

I had very little in the way of ceremony accessories. I think I bought a pretty pen that I meant to use for signing our register… but then promtly forgot to bring it and had to steal the officiant’s boring one.
I think if you clarify whether you mean things like unity candles/pens/guest books or actual jewelry you might get more responses!

In my research, I’ve seen that the majority of ceremony items, if you have a knack for DIY or even semi-DIY, can be made at a significantly reduced cost than buying it online even from cheap places. For instance, I found some very cheap satin ring bearer pillows on Amazon, and I’m going to bling it up a bit with ribbon from Michael’s craft store. Same goes for the flower girl basket – there are tons of tutorials on the DIY section of this website for ceremony decorations, so you might want to check on that for inspiration, even if you decide not to go the DIY route! Good luck 🙂

Almost all of of our ceremony accessories were DIY. But my theme had rustic/wood touches so I couldn’t find anything in store that I liked. It definitely was cheaper for me to make some of the items. We made our program paddle fans and guest book. We found a tutorial to help with the programs. Easy to google info on how to make programs! I made the sand ceremony vases out of glass milk bottles and just jazzed them up with moss and twine. Much cheaper than buying and personalized it to match the theme of our wedding. I found some sets were amlmost $30.00 minus the sand which was pretty frustrating. The gloss bottles I bought were like $2.00 each at a glass outlet store and I had a coupon. We bought an album and covered it with birch and engraved our monogram for a guest book. I could find nothing like that in store, but some of them on Etsy were $30-50. It probably cost around $15.00 to make ours.

I DIYed our programs and our Unity Candle set. Our regular guestbook and pen were from Hobby Lobby (during a 50% off sale), but we had a “quilt square guestbook” that everyone signed as well, and I DIYed that stuff with the help of my Mother-In-Law.
Our flower girls just carried pomanders (from the florist) because the church didn’t allow tossing flower petals. We didn’t have a ring bearer, so we didn’t need that either.
