An outdoor affair, love in the air.  What better theme for a garden reception than blue birds.  These save the date cards can double as an invite for a less formal soiree.  Seersucker suits for the men and seersucker table runners for the sweetheart, cake, and gift table at $25 a piece.  Shepherd’s hooks line driveways or aisles with blue hydrangea balls.  Blueberry Hill cupcakes serve as a visual point of interest and a sweet treat.  For a day time wedding, hang bird cages with yellow flowers in trees rather than lights and use a bird-cage as a place to keep guests’ cards.  Accent your tent with paper laterns in blue, white and an accent color.  Yellow looks great outdoors for a pop of color or lime green keeps the pallet in tune with the plants and sky of your venue a la Mother Nature.

If you’re looking to save money, friends and family will be glad to help.  However, you don’t want to stress and you don’t want your loved ones stressed out at the wedding either.  Think about it this way, anything that needs to be done the day of the wedding should not be done by you or your wedding party.  You and they need to be getting ready.  Also, somethings are just to important and need a professional.  Here’s my advice.
 
To hire:
Florist – unless you use silk, then you can make ahead of time
Photographer
Caterer
DJ – not only for the music but as the director of the reception
Pastor or Officiant
Tailor -if needed
 
To find volunteers:
Cake cutting – or ask the caterer to throw this in for free
Videographer – who really watches their wedding video anyway? J/K
Decorating reception hall
Driving bride and groom from church to reception
Tying ties and pinning corsages/bouts – if you hire a florist, he/she may do this for you
Take presents to car
Usher/Hostess pass out programs, greet guests, pass messages from officiant to bride, pass out bubbles
