Using only decorations, you can take an ordinary looking space and transform it into a beautiful and elegant area that is ideal for your wedding ceremony or reception. There are literally thousands of stores that offer more wedding decoration options then you could hope to look through in your lifetime in a whole slew of colors, styles, and price ranges. However, if you’re like most couples you have some sort of a budget in mind for your wedding and probably don’t have a ton of room for your wedding décor. Fortunately, you don’t need to spend a small fortune to get that perfect look because there are plenty of options for wedding décor on a budget that won’t look like you tried to cut corners.
Check What’s Included
Most wedding venues will include some sort of minor decorating as part of their package or already are well-suited for the job. Some venues go as far as to put little floral arrangements on each table while others require that you take care of all the decorating yourself. Your best bet is to check with the venue to see what is included with your rental agreement so you know what you have to work with and what you’ll need to buy to expand the look.
Don’t be afraid to ask your friends and family to help you hit the shops to find good deals; or even foot the bill for a few items! Most people will be excited to help you and will do anything they can to assist in making your wedding perfect. Additionally, you can always talk to your wedding vendors about what you want and what your budget is. It doesn’t always work out, but many vendors will put together options that are as close as possible to what you want within a price range that you can afford.
Barrow or Rent
When at all possible, try to borrow or rent any necessary items for your wedding rather than buying. Certain things are better to buy, but you can save a lot of money by renting items instead. If you are lucky enough to be able to borrow certain items for your wedding, they will be altogether free. If you know a couple who was just married they may still have things like bowls or vases from their centerpieces that will work perfectly for your wedding as well.
Keep Things Simple
Though you probably have some ideas in your head that you have your heart set on, try to keep your wedding décor as simple as possible. Not only will this keep things less expensive, but it will also make the job of decorating much easy and less time consuming. Many brides make the mistake of biting off more than they can chew when it comes to decorating their wedding venue, so keeping it simple help to ensure you have a stress-free and beautiful wedding.
