Wine Rack Gift Ideas?I was recently at a home decor store and found a beautiful standing wine rack (dark brown wicker with iron sides) for a great deal. I just had to get it for the price and would like to give it as a wedding gift, but I feel it needs something to go with it. Any suggestions? I thought maybe a wine opener and bottle of wine, but it doesn't sound too creative to me.
Groomsmen Gifts Ideas?Ok, all you thriftyfuners, I need your help. My daughters wedding is coming up in a month and a half and we do not have any ideas as to what to give the best man, groomsmen, ushers etc., as gifts. Any suggestions? Honestly I am all "idea-ed" out!
Wedding Champange Flute CandlesWe did this for my daughter's wedding. I went to the thrift store and bought two beautiful matching crystal champagne flutes. I then melted wax (can be bought at craft stores.) I let the wax cool just a bit so it would not crack the crystal and added some glass glitter in blue and silver which were her colors. Now when she eats her one year cake she will have beautiful candles to light for the special one year anniversary.

Looking for Monetary Gift Instructions?I was recently at a flea market and a woman was selling money gifts. The gifts were along the line of the money tree but one was a shirt with a bowtie in a cardboard box made from $5 and $1 bills. The other was flowers (with stems) made from money also. Does anyone have instructions for making these type of monetary gifts? I will be attending a wedding shower shortly and would like to give something similiar as a gift.
