Wedding favours and table numbers

For my wedding the theme colour is mint, therefore, I decided that the favours should obviously be mints. I used a mix of mint imperials (£1.00 for a bag) and spearmint mentos (£1.00 for five packets). I wanted to use the mentos against the mint imperials as the mentos have the correct colour of the wedding as it's coating. The wedding favour boxes were £2.49 per pack of 10, I needed only four packets. These were flat and needed to be folded up into boxes, this was so so time consumingas they were fiddly, but I was lucky to have family to help me.

For the table number holders I went online and searched for frames, as I have seen others use these to present the numbers. Although they were not as cheap as I thought so I then came across these bird memo holders and they were cheaper and matched with my wedding theme. For the numbers I created these on my computer then they were printed onto white card.

DIY wedding photo-booth

As I have seen recently the trend for weddings is to have a photo-booth, however, the ones you can hire cost a bomb . For a wedding you want to try and save where you can as it can all add up. Therefore, my sister and I decided to create a photo-booth for my wedding.
My sister is a photographer and has a backdrop frame, all I needed to do was get material for the backdrop. We went into a cheap store which sell homeware, we purchased one plain blue bed sheet and a opaque white curtain . The white curtain calms down the blue as I did not want to have it too loud (I want the props and guests to stand out).
For props I went into 'Chaplins' again as they are cheap and have a large dressing up section. I just picked up random hats, glasses, I got some feather boas and I added in bits that I already had (such as the minnie mouse ears). The basket was being sold as a laundry basket but I thought it would be useful to hold the props.
On the big day I will be using a tripod and my compact digital camera to let the guests take thir pictures. I have created a sign which will hang from the tripod for all to see.

Wedding table plan

My wedding is literally 2 Weeks away !!! So I have been very busy putting everything into place and making sure every fine detail is perfect . Today I made my table plan which will be placed by the entrance of the venue, where guests can find their seats easily . For my seating plan I randomly came across the birdcage frame from 'Chaplins' (a cheapy store where I managed to get bits and bobs for wedding), it was supposed to be a photo/picture holder.
