When it comes to your wedding decor, you don’t have to break your budget or go all-out to have a memorable and beautiful day. You can find an affordable wedding venue and use these 15 decoration ideas to save money while pulling all of the small details of your wedding together.
1. Glass Bottles
For a touch of whimsy, get mismatched glass bottles and add herbs or flowers for your table centerpieces. They can be all unique, and you can buy them over time.
2. Christmas Lights
String up white Christmas lights around the trees if you have an outdoor wedding for a nice ambiance. You can get small strands and put them in the centerpieces on the table for light too.
3. Table Pearls
If you want to create an elegant and classy look, get fake pearls and scatter them around your table. For around $6, you can get 150 pearls. Get a few packs and put them everywhere.
4. Paper Lanterns
Buy paper lanterns and hang them around your venue for a soft glow. They come in multiple colors, and they’ll give any room an intimate look and feel for a cost-effective price.
5. Create a Slide Show
To entertain your guests at the reception, create a slide show that includes your engagement photos and some fun shots of the bride, groom, and the wedding party.
6. Color Block Cups
Save money on glassware at your reception by option for chic color block cups. You can pick from several colors to fit into your decor.
7. Have a Picnic
Have your reception outside with blankets and pillows for your guests to sit on. Each blanket can have its own picnic basket with an assortment of food and beverages.
8. Add Candles
Candles are an inexpensive way to light up your reception venue, and you can get flameless ones if you’re afraid of having real ones sitting around by the flowers or fabric.
9. Drape the Ceiling
Buy sheets of lightweight fabric and drape the ceiling to create an instantly elegant look. You can also use them for table runners to continue the theme.
10. Chalkboard Table Markers
There are small chalkboards that you can set in the middle of your table with each table number on it. This way, your guests know where to go.
11. Candy Bar
Get a few glass jars and fill them with an assortment of candy your guests can take to create their own snack bag. You can set up a dessert corner in one area of the reception hall.
Your local dollar store should have cost-effective lanterns you can get and set on tables or hang up around your venue to cast a soft glow.
13. Birch Tree Ornaments
If you lack for ornaments, gather up a bunch of birch tree branches and tie them together. They can sit nicely on tables or the side of the aisle.
14. Small Wooden Heart
Go to your local craft store and buy a bunch of small wooden harts or shapes. Leave them with a Sharpie at your reception and encourage guests to leave a note.
15. Silk Flower Petals
Let your flower girl sprinkle silk rose petals down the aisle. You can scatter them on your table, too, for an easy centerpiece.
