When it comes to holding a wedding there are many things that will be taking up your money. From the wedding invites to the table place cards, the table decorations and even the wedding favours. To make sure you have a lovely wedding and the money that you are spending doesn’t just turn up in the bin the very next day there are some ideas that might help. Making sure that you have these items in a manner that they can be reused would be a great idea. It is actually possible to do so and still keep the original idea you always wanted.
When it comes to the invites you may decide to keep things simple and neat to one piece of card or you might go extravagant with even a mini paper bag for your invite. Well what you want to do is all up to you, but to make sure that people are not just going to trash it away when the wedding is done you may take a few well thought out decisions. For a simple invite that is just one piece of card, you may consider using sticky dots to attach the details of the wedding ceremony which can be printed on clear plastic on to the card. This way the card itself can be reused for any other purpose. If you have something huge with even a mini bag for it, then make sure you don’t have dates and names on the bag. This way the bag can be reused as a small gift bag of some sort.
Place cards are an important part of the wedding. Having your guest be seated in the right place will save a lot of confusion and trouble for you and the guests themselves. Instead of simple printing cards with the names on it, try to be creative by making bookmarks, which will still use the same amount of paper and have the names attached to it using glue dots. This way the guest will be able to remove the name tag and use the book mark for their personal use. Making the bookmark pretty with small designs will also be a great idea. You may even attach a ribbon or twine to the end of it and attach it to the chair at every table. Just make sure that it is pretty and obvious that it is reusable. Small ideas like this can bring about great changes. Sometimes the cost can be reduced and sometimes the cost might be a slightly more depending on what you will decide to do. But at the end of the day the fact will be that your items will not be thrown away, but be reused and even admired and cherished.
