For money saving wedding decorations think bold colours. Whether it’s flowers or ribbons, a brighter colour will always look like more, so you won’t need to spend a lot on decorating everything! Besides, a bright colour against a muted background will create a very well put-together look, making your guests think that you are a genius (of course) with an instinctive sense of style.
Keep your tables elegant and simple by leaving them free of clutter. We suggest using your favours as decorations, or your decorations as favours, whichever way you prefer it. Tip: the best and cheapest favours are always DIY. Whether you want to give little jars of your signature jam, or specially wrapped cookies, it will always go down well with the guests
Buy your decor second hand. Lots of new husbands and wives will be selling their job lots of decor on auctioning and re -purposing sites for lower prices: take advantage of this. Similarly, utilise second-hand fairs and junk sales – as they say, one man’s rubbish is another couple-to-be’s treasure. These are especially good if you’re going for a slightly eclectic look where you don’t need 10 matching items, but just enough items under an umbrella theme.
Use the bridal bouquets as decorations. As soon as everyone sits down for the reception and all the photos are taken, the bouquets get forgotten, so strategically place them as table centrepieces
Play with fabrics. Whether for draping tables, walls, or even ceilings, rolls of your favourite fabrics are cheap to buy and are great at creating atmosphere.
Use paper,paper is so versatile. Have some craft sessions with your nearest and dearest in the run-up to the wedding: it means you can make paper chains or origami cranes etc en masse, but also provides you with some much-needed family time in the stress of the last few weeks. Alternatively, use paper as homemade streamers, confetti, bunting, or tablecloths. The world is your oyster and you it’s papery pearl. Hope these ideas for Money Saving Wedding Decorations help.
