Cheap Wedding Decoration Ideas
The wedding day can be as expensive as you intend it to be. They say that these events are extremely costly, but the truth is that each couple is responsible for the amount of money they decide to spend. No on said that the perfect wedding has to be expensive. And besides this, there is no such etiquette regarding the money you have to spend in order to obtain a successful affair.
Make sure that you establish the budget before you start shopping around for the things you think you need. It’s important to think off the most important items first, like the wedding invitations, the wedding rings, the wedding attire, the wedding venues, the wedding cake, the music, the food & drinks and the centerpieces. Only after you get these things right you can decide on the decorations and other additional accessories. You will see that it’s wiser to start with the costlier things and then end up with the ones you can actually call off.
The decorations play an important role in a wedding today. Our designers seem to emphasize the fact that the beauty or uniqueness of a wedding is in the accessories you’re using to embellish the venue and the tables. We agree with them, but those who have a limited budget have to invest more time and energy in looking for the best deal in order to save money for the real important things listed above.
Nevertheless, we all have our priority lists we want to follow. This is why for some couples the wedding attire could be the first thing they want to focus on. Unfortunately, many of them forget that the wedding is also about entertaining the guests. Don’t forget that cheap doesn’t necessarily mean ugly, plain, ordinary or tacky. The decorations and the flowers usually take over at least 10 percent of the overall wedding budget. The good news is that there are many ways to cut the wedding expenses without making it look cheap and standard.
Opt for the DIY method or choose to make the important things in the house. Bake the cookies and the cakes yourself and create the decorations by using different fabrics. We love the crafty style based on hanging garlands, paper lanterns and pom-poms. They look very festive and are able to add a little more cheerfulness to the party. Collect old things from your grandmother’s house, like mason jars, doilies and antique recipients. A little bit of vintage touch won’t hurt but do you very good! Play it versatile and use the same item for different purposes. For instance, some of the treats on the dessert table can be offered as wedding favors at the end of the day.
