Keeping it Classy While Keeping it Cheap

Hi! My name is Laura and I will be interning here at JP Event Design for the summer.Over the next few months I am going to help plan the wedding of your dreams while helping you not go bankrupt. If you haven’t noticed the overall consensus of this blog is to save money. At least once a week I am going to give brides creative ideas to make their weddings a dream come true! I will be sure to add the websites and books I found these great ideas from so you can look too!

Since we all have beach fever let’s look at a few fun ideas we can use from our friend the beach!

Seashells are everywhere. I’m sure we can all remember waking up early as a kid and walking down the pick out our favorite shells. Why not put these childhood treasurers to good use?

One fun idea for seashells is featured on the Better Homes and Gardens website. For this fun center piece all you need is sand, a few large bowls, plenty of seashells, and some candles. Most of these products can be found at the dollar story for low prices and can still have an expensive look! For more on this craft and other seashell crafts check out

Another fun favor idea is to make your own sand candle holder. For this project all you need is some jars, sand, candles, food coloring, glue, and ribbon. (Base the colors on your weddings theme!) Take your jar and fill it with sand, use the food coloring to color the sand to fit your wedding. Place the candle in the middle of the sand and tie the ribbon around the jar. TA DA! You have yourself a cheap but beautiful wedding favor. To add more, feel free to add some sea shells in the jar or attach a fun poem to the ribbon

Well that’s all for this week! Be sure to find fun and inexpensive ideas every Tuesday here on .
