It couldn't get much simpler (and more affordable!) than to add a bit of bling to your wedding with silver metallic cupcake wrappers.  Use a clear or ceramic white cupcake stand to really let them sparkle.

This glittered table number and accompanying vase would be an easy DIY project to add some shimmer to  your reception tables.  You could even opt for a colored glitter if using a traditional metallic wasn't an option.
