Things you will need:
Your own menu design
Your own menu wrapper design
Light Pink Ostrich Feather – Bought on Ebay
Double Sided Tape
Things from around the house:
Box cutter knife
I used Photoshop to design my wedding menus and the menu wrappers. I used elements from my wedding invitation design to tie together the theme.
I printed out the menus and the menu wrappers as shown below.
After printing out all the menus I cut them all out and put them in piles of 10.
I took one wrapper and folded the edges back around the menu. After you fold the edges back around the menu cut two slits at the top and bottom of the wrapper for the feather. My wrapper was too short so I cut another smaller piece and used double side taped it to make a full loop over the menu. If the wrapper is long enough then you can just use the double sided tape to make the loop around the menu.
Once the wrappers are fully taped and cut start to loop the feathers into them as shown below.
I hope my guests will like the soft look of the pale pink ostrich feathers at their place setting.
The best part is that I made these myself and I put my personal touches and saved money on the table decorations for my wedding!

It can be hard to find the perfect something blue to go with your gown. I bought my wedding shoes at 6pm shoes for $19! I love the gems but I felt that there was something missing. Since I was looking to add something blue I decided to embellish my shoes with blue bows. I found a fork ribbon bow tutorial on You Tube! It is super fast and awesome! All I did next was hot glue (or you could sew) the fork ribbon bows onto my wedding shoes. Now I have my something blue to wear on my wedding day....which I think is super cute!
I made this guest book from my engagement photos on Shutterfly. I bought a groupon for $20. I made the bow with a fork bow tutorial I found on You Tube. I recommend trying to make a bow with a fork....super easy! I used a hot glue gun to glue the ribbon onto itself to attache to the guest book and just slid the ribbon bow on to a pretty pen. In no time I had a guest book with a pen for my upcoming wedding!
