You need to be more creative and think about ways to stick to your wedding budget without sacrificing the overall look that you want for your wedding.
Instead of using fancy seat covers, you can use a wide ribbon to tie at the backs of reception chairs to make an elegant setup. Just pick a colour that suits your wedding theme and ask your friends to help you in cutting and tying the ribbons. You can also use ribbons to tie ceremony programs. Just print and punch holes at the corners, then tie thin ribbons to keep the pages together.
Light up the room with candles
Want to make the venue more romantic and elegant? Surround it with numerous candles. These are inexpensive and can bring a different level of elegance without spending a lot.
Decorate with food
Some items in your menu can be used for decoration. Set up a dessert bar with clear jars filled with candies and other sweets. Arrange food in nice platters to create an amazing spread.
Make your own candle holders
Make the candles more visually appealing by wrapping each candle with burlap then tie a ribbon around it. These burlap candle holders can be great table centrepieces. You can also use twine to achieve a different look.
Use white lights
White Christmas lights are inexpensive and available all year round. They are also versatile when it comes to weddings. You can hang them from the ceiling for an Instagram-worthy venue. Wrap them around your table centrepiece or even your wedding cake.
Use baby’s breath
Wedding flowers can be expensive, so instead of buying a lot of flowers to decorate the area for your wedding ceremony, consider using baby’s breath. Buy inexpensive buckets and spray paint them with silver or any other colour that suits your theme. Fill them with baby’s breath and place the buckets at the end of seat rows for a clean, simple, and elegant statement.
