I was just asked to decorate for a wedding for a couple from another ward. I don't know anything about them but I do know is that they need it to be inexpensive and they like the colors white and cream. Plus help me, I'm desperate for some good ideas. The wedding is next Saturday, so I don't have much time, so it need to be super simple. I'm going to the Dollar Tree this weekend, so if you know of anything there, that would be great. Please leave a link to anything that you would think would make a cute center piece. Thanks in advance!

Check out this website

towards the bottom there are wedding ideas. I liek the hanging fabric ball but you could have it NOT hang and have a few in different colors/sizes on each table maybe in a ball?

At the top you can click on Categoris and get a lot more ideas :)

I linked to a quick cheap project I just did. Instead of yellow flowers you could do white/cream and maybe tie a brown ribbon around it. Also use more/taller sticks to be more dramatic.

Good Luck and let us know what you come up with!

I linked up a few ideas. On the name plaque you could stamp their names/wedding date or you could just paint them and use for candle chargers.

On the flower topiaries you could paint the pots white and use white flowers w/white stick pin centers.

Let us know what you end up doing, good luck!

You could fill a candle holder with dried black-eyed peas or another white bean like the lima bean, and put a pillar candle in the middle with a beautiful ribbon around the outside, and maybe a square monogram around it. (Just fyi: If they are OK with coffee beans and a pillar- Starbucks will let you have their expired beans for free. I've decorated MANY weddings this way. Starbucks has always been so nice about it).

I would just crash another LDS wedding (there seem to be a lot right now) and ask if I could use/rent their decorations. Good Luck!
