Decor that Does Double Duty

It is nice to know that you don't have to sacrifice style when you've got your budget on your mind. Incorporating decor that does double duty is a perfect option!
Here are some examples:
These adorable white bud vases double as individual placecard holders. Noone will miss the centerpiece when they see these vases lining the tables. Choose inexpensive, pretty buds such as gerbera daisies in bright colors. For larger flowers, one per vase will do!
Put your calligraphy skills to good use by personalizing matching white cards for each place setting.
These bud vases are available here for $1.80 each. Discounts are available for larger quantities.

Paper parasols are the ideal accessory for bridesmaids to carry down the aisle.
They will add some color to your venue, and at $10.00 each these are a fabulous alternative to a bouquet.
When the wedding portraits are done, these parasols can be used as ceiling decorations at your reception venue. They look fabulous when they are open and hanging by the handles!

When it comes to summer weddings, the heat doesn't agree with everyone. Paper fans are very inexpensive and can be placed on each chair at the ceremony, and by creating a hang tag with the guests name and table number, they can also be used as a placecard!
Available in multiple colors, paper fans can also be personalized with a message for $2.25 each.

Galvanized buckets or vases add charm and a bit of "country chic" to an indoor or outdoor venue. Many brides have a few hours in between their ceremony and reception, so designing florals that can be transported from venue to venue could save you a bundle!
These Fleur-de-Lis buckets are the perfect height to line an aisle with simple country flowers, and can then look amazing as table centerpieces at the reception. Save money creating one arrangement that can be used more than once. Available here for $10.00 each.
