This will be the ceremony entrance for our outdoor wedding. I scored the bi-fold doors for free off of freecycle.com, painted and distressed them myself, and purchased the curtain rod and sheers from Bed, Bath, and Beyond for about $17.00. I think it will make a big impact. While those of us familiar with Pintrest have seen this sort of thing before, I know my guests will have not and will hopefully be quite impressed.

I <3 my Balloons! They did exactly what I wanted!

These are the best photos I have of them at the moment

No one really liked my color scheme during the planning, but I was really happy with it.  Tissue paper poms are a pain in the butt if you buy them–they’re die-cut and tear when you try to pull the layers apart.  I bought red tissue and added the red poms–they were much easier/faster to do.  My paper lantern cluster was my second favorite after my burlap banner.  I wrote on that with a sharpie!

@Asia:  AWW! Thanks! Our room was fairly large, and it only took 3 of us about an hour to hang them all (We got the fast seal balloon clips, balloons AND the ribbon from oriental trading, I cut the ribbon WEEKS before the wedding so I didn’t have to worry about it.. All in all  I think it was about $50.. and we didn’t use most of the balloons!!).. We blew them up with an air compressor…

ETA: I forgot to add, we hung them with masking tape, made them SUPER easy to pull down at the end of the night.

@MrsLongcoatPeacoat:  I love your garland! How did you string them together? I’m thinking of making something similar as a backdrop. 🙂

The only DIY thing I did was the table number signs and moss initials on the front door.  I think it turned out great.  🙂

I think our centerpieces/tables are going to be what is really awesome. We are doing antique books, light blue mason jars, antique bottles and table numbers. I got all my decorations for 9 tables at around $275.

For the table numbers, I went to Michaels and bought small pine wood squares, stained them and then painted the numbers. For the books, we checked out library sales and used book stores.

I found our aisle decor at a craft store (Michael’s) – here it is at the store & then at our ceremony:

All of my decorations were DIY, Burlap and a little paint goes a long way 🙂 Also, painted signs, plants, etc

I also DIYed our photobooth sign 🙂

Ended up using a chalk pen/marker rather than regular chalk because it didn’t rub off and showed up better:
