Hi Payless, 

I couldn’t send images via private message? Here is some of the stuff I have. As you can see,I am trying hard to keep the price down as well. I have the little card box, a just married banner, a whole bunch of little clear x-mas lights on brown cord (not pictured), one short cord of pink and white rose string lights, an assortment of colored fans to hand up outside, (might order more, so I don’t have exact number yet), a dozen blue mason jars, about a dozen clear mason jars, nine blue-ish wine bottles with little gold horseshoes. I will have a bunch of 1″ translucent gold ribbon, and quite alot of fabric bunting flags, in similar colors and designs to that “just married” sign, but bigger triangles and in real fabric. We are using that to drape outside at the ceremony site. I have 50 tea lights, but I think they will be all burned up. There were really cheap from Sav on Crafts, they are called the “bio light candles”. I will sell anything for 60% of what I paid for it. Obviously the wine bottles would be free.

@Payless:  Here are a few ideas that you can adapt:

branches are good for rustic centerpieces- you don’t have to buy manzanita branches. You can scavenge something that would work for you. Set in in a pot using plaster of paris and hot glue silk flowers to the branches

this one uses gourds – punch holes in one and place a tealight inside the cutout bottom- wrap with vines- you can soak a grapevine wreath to make the vines flexible then use those

Ikea has  inexpensive lanterns- add a candle, a few succulents or other plants,pebbles etc

are you crafty at all? this one uses fabric flowers made of burlap in an old container- you could add some tealights around it

 

   use a wood slab for a base, a smaller slice of a branch for your table numbers, wrap twine around a pop bottle and use a mason jar with either a few flowers or only one larger flower like a mum or hydrangea

a similar idea using inexpensive flowers from the garden or supermarket, wood slab amd small mason jar for a tea light. You can use mismatched vases borrowed from friends and family

This one shows how you can put together basically found objects- bucked up wood chunks, moss pebbles then add a couple of pieces. Ikea has little lanterns for 3.99- you could borrow little objects from family to use instead of the little watering can

@Payless:  in that case I would visit a dollar store to purchase some vases. Get some branches. Glue some decoration to them and maybe decorate the vase with ribbon or lace.
