1. Make Custom BoutsAnne Marie Photography
Wrapping the bottom of boutonnieres with washi tape rather than ribbon provides a little more support, so you can count on it to keep heftier add-ins (like these wooden flowers) in place all evening long. And the tape adds a subtle, unexpected texture.

2. Use It On Your CenterpiecesKaty Weaver Photography
Adding a strip or two of color-coordinated tape around a few centerpieces is an easy way to bring a whole tabescape together. Especially if there’s a frequent pattern in play, like chevron, which can also be incorporated through cocktail napkins, table runners, or paper straws.

3. Personalize Your Escort Card DisplayJessica Maida Photography
Mixing colors and patterns never looked so put-together. With a neutral canvas of kraft paper, twine and white calligraphy, the washi tape adds a fun (and colorful) hand-crafted element.

4. Mismatch Some Colorful AccentsBailey Roberts Photography
For a wedding palette that spans a couple of colors, we’re willing to bet there’s a roll of washi to match. Play up prominent hues or incorporate a festive pattern into the mix. Add a strip of tape around vases, place cards, menus, banners or—when the time comes—seal your thank you notes.

5. Tape Up a Photo WallBonnie & Lauren
Want to show off a gallery of cute couple photos, or display print-outs from a reception photo booth? Cue the washi tape! Not only is this route inexpensive and easy to do, but clean up is a breeze (no tape marks or residue).

6. Easy Seating Chart IdeaKara Pearson Photography
Don’t have the time (or maybe the budget?) to put together seperate escort cards for each guest? Print out table assignments on pieces of kraft paper and hand them up with Washi tape.
