Drink station ideas

If your guests are self-serving their beverages, just add a few pretty blooms, a chalkboard and some paper straws, and you're on your way to a shabby chic drink station. It's all about the personal rustic touches! Save money by picking wildflowers (FREE!), make your own chalkboard with an old mirror and chalkboard paint, and ask a family member to prepare his/her famous punch!

Beach-themed wedding ideas

If you're planning a coastal-themed wedding -- whether inside a luxurious ballroom, on the sandy shores of your favorite beach, or in your Aunt Betty's backyard -- small details are what this theme's all about. Too over-the-top, and you may be crossing into birthday party territory. Here are a few ideas:

dress up the bouquet with starfish and a sand dollar

party favor idea: saltwater taffy in little buckets

seaglass on the table around the lantern

centerpiece: a white lantern with a candle, sand, a starfish and some shells inside

a treasure box over fishing net for dropping cards in
