Been there, seen that — numbering each of your reception tables one through let’s say 25 might be the traditional go-to choice, but you don’t have to go that route! Feel free to steal some of our recently-married couples ideas of oh-so brilliant names like robin (birds), recess (school-themed), daffodil (flowers), dewey (beaches), farenheit 451 (books), charlotte (cities), sycamore (trees), or the notebook (movies) here.

In case you want to take a break from checking off items on your late-night wedding to-do list, consider getting crafty! You can create customizable bunting or banner signs for various parts of your reception decor. Imagine hanging them from the ceiling of your venue, from the front of your sweetheart table or dessert display, or posing with them for thank-you cards to be sent post-honeymoon.

Who knew that something so simple like picture frames could make such a lasting impact on your wedding day decor, especially if it’s shabby chic themed! Break a welcome message down into individual words and arrange them in a display on trees, fill them flowers for a ceremony backdrop, tack your escort cards in them for guests to find their seats, add family photos in them to honor loved ones not present, or place them around centerpieces to create a masterpiece. Our Decor Editor’s best advice: remember they DO have a purpose!
When we picture a Southern rustic wedding on a farm, plantation, or even in a backyard underneath the stars, we think: lace and lots of doilies! This intricate, hand-stitched fabric can be used anywhere quite frankly within your decor, especially as ribbon wrapped around your bouquets or centerpieces, table linens or runners, and do-it-yourself photo booth backdrops. Bonus: It counts towards your something old and borrowed too!
