11 Ways to DIY Your Wedding With Flagging Tape
2014 led the way to some of the most beautiful celeb weddings yet. If you don’t have Kim + Kanye’s wedding budget (#jointheclub), we’ve got a best-kept wedding secret that will give you a big bang for your buck: flagging tape. Even if you haven’t heard of it, you’ve probably seen it… ahem, on the side of the road. Flagging tape was once used for construction zones and surveying, but now is making its debut in weddings everywhere. We’re sharing 11 DIYs for incorporating this colorful and affordable must-have in your wedding.
