Sounds like you have everything covered and then some. I know a lot of brides with a lot less decor and I think you did a lovely job of it with yout ideas. You kept consistent with your theme too! Looks great! Could you maybe use the chalkboard for directions (arrows) to the ceremony and reception or even for the ceremony saying something cute like the ever popular “pick a seat not a side. We’re all family now”

I think you have everything! In fact, I wouldn’t buy the garland. Your venue is so pretty on it’s own, it really doesn’t need a lot of decorating.

lr0901:  I think you have done a beautiful job in making your choices thus far.  You can move the whitewashed table inside and use it for the cake pop or card table.

You can use rustic wood frames or old window frames to hold a thick piece of styrofoam, covered in moss for your cake pop display

or drill holes in logs to hold the cake pops

I love your escort card stuff!!!!! Great decor. You should just have fun browsing garage sales, ebay, craigslist. Just enjoy that you have it all and only buy more stuff when it fits in and it’s a great deal. At least that’s how I see it. By The Way if you have time (like a month for stuff to arrive) I got burlap bunting banners for a buck a piece from ebay (shipping with china) that included shipping! I also bought  wooden letters from ebay super cheap and spray painted them. 

I can sell you a huge custom burlap WEDDING banner if you want to guide people to the wedding for like $25

So here’s my card table: bird cage from online craft store, dollar store heart vases (to hold pen), jar from online craft store (with bridesmaid’s flower bouquet I guess she took them out of the bouquet or my coord did?) Heart bunting from Ebay ($1 including shipping!!!), empty liquor bottle with a candle in it is from our life, the letters are ones I bought cheap on ebay (like 1 or 2 bucks per letter including shipping) and then spray painted – I super glued wine corks onto the back of them so that they stood up on their own. The frames are from Ikea (but I got them off craigslist, a cheap box of recycled IKEA stuff and then sold them after the wedding. IKEA wedding stuff sells on craigslist like hot cakes!) The Instagram sign was from Etsy, a seller was having a sale on her custom Instagram signs so like $4 and then I printed at a local print shop for like $2. I just typed up and printed “Please sign our guest book” myself and used a dollar store frame.  plus shipping. I spent $80 on it. 

You can also get a cute vase at a flea market and then assign your bridesmaids where to put their bouquet after the ceremony is over. That is one way I dressed up my card table/cake table 🙂
