It’s true that weddings are precious and expensive events that must be planned with extra care and attention. The expenses may increase as you choose to purchase only expensive items. One of the most costly things to take care of for a wedding is the décor. Those who are having a big wedding and yet a smaller budget have to make compromises in order to obtain successful results without crossing the line. They have to look for the best deal in everything and not stray from the price tags they’ve established before going shopping.
But one way to save money on weddings without sacrificing any of the ideas you like is to follow the DIY style. Use fabric instead of other expensive decorations to beautify your wedding in your own way. Adding more personal touches in the wedding can make your event look even more fashionable! There are higher chances for you to obtain an original wedding if adopting the crafty style. You will have many benefits to rejoice at, we promise you this!
The amazing project we’re sharing today is inspired by a unique type of fabric: denim. This material is a rugged cotton twill textile that was trendy back in the hippie era. Now it’s back in trend for weddings and we are very impressed to see that the results are so good. There is a new denim era we’re experiencing today and this style seems to make a fabulous choice for a wedding.
The first item we’re proposing for your denim wedding project is a photo booth backdrop. It’s easy to make this element of décor for your ceremony or reception by draping a few yards of denim fabric in various blue colors over an overhead pole and obtain a beautiful setting for your photos.
This is a chic inexpensive way of obtaining an amazing backdrop even for the reception party. You can use this style to decorate the entire setting. Curtain and hanging fabric decorations are every trendy today in weddings. We love the groom’s outfit and the way it fits the theme. He wears a vintage chambray shirt from J. Crew and a matching custom tie from Tie Crafters. Use the same color and texture to create sweet take-home treats for the guests, like in the second picture.
Our designers propose you salted caramels in denim paper. Seal the candies with a personalized label. Another playful idea to keep up with the theme and flatter your guests is to offer them popcorn in paper cones. Use photocopies of the wedding color-scheme. Create a special table for all the thematic wedding treats you have to offer alongside the big cake. We like the big letter topper used for this simple white confection.
One of the most beautiful ways of decorating a modern wedding is to use lights. This type of decoration is easy to handle and easy to assort with different wedding styles and themes. And when you’re planning a rustic or a more natural wedding, the paper lanterns are the best way to go. We adore this way of beautifying a space, especially an outdoors location. The majority of couples these days are choosing the alfresco style because it is way more comfy and relaxing. And there is no better way to make a garden, a park or a backyard look warm and inviting than through paper lanterns.
These items can be made of rice paper and wire and they can add even more elegance to a setting. Besides this, we have to admit they look very fashionable. Their playful look is great for cheerful parties planned in the middle of the nature. Those of you who want a trendy wedding and a festive atmosphere should toy with paper lanterns. These fabulous elements can be used for any other type of event or special occasion because they have a celebration air that’s very unique.
We like lanterns because they can be found or made in a variety of colors, sizes, shapes and textures. But the greatest thing of all is that they can be very cheap! Specialists in field recommend these lovely decorations especially to economical newlyweds who are having a tight budget wedding. Due to the fact that they are so affordable many couples decide to use paper lanterns instead of other type of lighting or accessories. These cute items can be utilized for both the ceremony and the reception. But in most cases they are used especially for the party venue.
The only difficulty in working with paper lanterns is that you need more time and a little bit of effort to arrange them in your party. If the wedding occurs outside the doors, think in advance about the proper way of incorporating them in the venue. You can use the trees to hang the lanterns of other wires, strings and ribbons. If you want to obtain a more vibrant and jovial ambiance you can use the lanterns in different shades. The results are always great!
Nevertheless, it would be wiser to choose the colors according to the color-scheme of the wedding. Before you start decorating the place you should as the venue whether you are allowed to use paper lanterns. Not in all cases you are permitted to do so. You can use store-bought paper lanterns or make your own if you are skilled in this field. Use any type of paper (tissue, crepe) you like and create your favorite texture.

The wedding project we’re presenting here is inspired by the psychedelic style and it is actually one of the most flattering and unique styles a modern couple can adopt for their wedding.
We adore the way the designers and florists who worked for this project managed to get the details and the accents looking so thematic, coherent and one of a kind. We recommend this type of wedding inspiration to those who are planning a nontraditional wedding with a soul theme.
This type of wedding is surely not the most conventional, predictable or usual. The contrary, the theme approached for this wedding is quite original. However, the influences of the Mexican style used for these decorations are decisive. The wedding looks more romantic, juicy and sensual. The Spanish wedding style is always vibrant, a bit whimsy and cheerful. Therefore, combining the psychedelic and Mexican style is perhaps one of the most inedited and crazy ideas! We have to admit that the results are simply mind-blowing!
The psychedelic style can be translated like a manifestation of the soul, and the psychedelic experience like a creative exuberance of the mind and perception. Some will say that this theme is scary, weird or too strange and wild to be adopted for a wedding. Well, before you dismiss it, we suggest you take a good look at these pictures and see whether you have something to say negative about these arrangements. The designers did a fantastic job creating all these unique and eye-catchy details!
The photo shooting is also charming and it reveals the emotional and vibrant background of the wedding. The inspirational shoot is by Melissa Elise Event Design & Styling. These designers tried to adopt a new style for a contemporary wedding and provide the unconventional couples of today with new ways to pull a 100% original wedding. The wedding ceremony and reception was created for a Mexican region, but it’s not mandatory to pick a real location from this area. You can always recreate the Spanish vibrant style in any other place!
The inspiration and style used for these decorations come from the biker cultures of the late ‘60s and ‘70s. This is why these arrangements look so hippie! The handmade elements and the traditional Mexican textiles add a modern twist. We love the festive colors and the lavish flower arrangements used for the bouquets and table scapes! The bride's dress and jewelry are from Miss Tashina and Sweet Evie & Jenny Dayco.

Weddings wouldn’t be the same or complete if it weren’t for the flower arrangements. Nowadays the flowers and the bloom arrangements are kept simple & clean, natural and light. The beauty of a modern wedding is in the details and the designers today are interested in creating small or little arrangements that can captivate the eyes and stir the interest of the people participating at the event. The ruffled blooms are the trend of the year and they can be used in various petite or natural-touch bouquets and centerpieces.
One great idea for wedding flower arrangements is to tuck fresh cut flowers into the napkins used for the centerpieces. Both the white and the colored themes are in vogue. The soft pastel ones are more adequate for vintage and antique receptions, while the bold ones for dramatic, casual or tropical weddings.
For fall wedding affairs specialists recommend home-made food and sweets and hand-made decorations. You can use the rustic theme – which is the trendiest one when it comes to autumn weddings and adopt the natural style. Use pumpkins, lanterns, wheat ears, sunflowers, wildflowers, fruits & vegetables for the tables.
For the wedding ceremony pews you can use flower buckets and make it everything look a bit more cheerful and original. Even for the wedding rings designers have great ideas. They recommend knitted ring pillows which look great especially in winter weddings.
