1. Romantic Wedding Day Countdown: This is a lovely idea — you can find these cute advent-style calendars online as print-outs. It’s an easy and free DIY project where you basically make a countdown to your wedding day for your significant other. Underneath every number is a different reason why you’re excited to marry him or her. Sweet, right?

2. DIY Bridesmaids Emergency Kit: This is a super easy thing to put together, and it doesn’t have to be too fancy! Put together some necessary day-of items for your bridesmaids for the wedding. That way, if they have a wardrobe mishap, blistered feet, or breath that needs freshening, they’re covered!

3. All-Natural Wedding Place Card: Don’t waste tons of time, energy, or money on an elaborate place card for each guest. Simple items can be even more unique and charming — fruit, for example, is a really easy way to have a cheap, cute, and delicious place card for your guests on your wedding day.


4. A Sweet Coffee Bar: Having a wedding in the morning, or a brunch for your bridal party the day after the wedding? Skip a fancy dessert bar and opt for a coffee bar instead.

5. Wedding Madlibs: Keep guests entertain with interesting activities throughout your reception. Small games or easy print-outs are a great way to keep your guests involved, chatting with each other, and engaged during the reception.
