Your something old or something borrowed.

A program guide. You can easily print one using your own printer at home and it can be very simple with minimal layout. What is important in a wedding program is the content. Tell something about your story, tell something about the bridal party, put some trivia, or put some simple paper games that the guests can play while waiting for the ceremony. Don’t forget to add your official wedding hashtag.
Framed photos. You can place frame photos in the registration area in your reception or place one in each of your wedding table. Tell a story if you must.

Have your phone photos printed or put some old childhood photos of you and your groom in them. You don’t even have to spend too much in frames.
Thank you notes. Traditionally, we send thank you notes to guests days after the wedding but it is much more convenient to give these notes directly during the wedding. Make it meaningful and make it special. You can place them along with the menu, or you can ask you coordinator to help you distribute it after the wedding. And you won’t even have to pay for mail. 🙂
Wedding signs. These are very simple projects. It can be a directional sign, a social media sign, or a wedding etiquette sign. Add some DIY details in them and place them as add-ons in the ceremony or reception area. These are the first few things that the guests usually notice and again, you won’t have to spend a lot.
Don’t forget to mention these details to your photographer and videographer so that they won’t forget to include them in their shot list. Of course, they are professionals and they know what to do but it won’t hurt to inform them which details are personal and extra special.
