Wedding planning on a budget can be challenging at times. Having a restricted wedding budget has become common for many couples of all ages that, for one reason or another, choose not to spend a fortune on their wedding.
There are still many things you can do to make an elegant wedding without spending a fortune! Here are some ideas for decorations for those budget-conscious brides that don’t want to break the bank!
One of the best ways to save money on wedding decorations is to borrow them! Ask friends and family for items to use for decorating from their past weddings. Something as simple as pillars or yards of tulle can make your wedding perfect!
Pair borrowed decorations with a few cheaper items you purchased to make the wedding look great. One example of this might involve borrowing mirrors for centerpieces. Simply set small glass vases with colored stones and silk flowers on top of mirrors for a romantic and elegant look!
If you are not able to borrow decorations from friends or family, companies can offer affordable, high-quality lighting and décor rental packages!
One great way brides can save money is to go with a DJ and lighting company that combines packages for couples. Avoid stress and go with a company like A Posh Production that will offer entertainment as well as décor for your special day! Renting can also allow for someone else to put up and tear down your decorations. What better way to save stress than let someone else do the work?
Another great way to have a stylish wedding on a budget is to make your own decorations! Do-it-yourself (DIY) wedding decorations can still look as elegant as expensive store-bought ones. Plus, DIY décor can be very unique and personal.
If you have trouble with the creative side of decorating, ask some friends, family members, or members of your wedding party to help out! The decorating experience can help you bond and get excited for your big day.
Whether you decide to borrow, rent or create your own décor, there are a number of ways you can host a great wedding without spending a lot of money!
