8 Budget-Friendly Wedding Ideas that Pack the Biggest Punch
With every aspect of your wedding day, always try and get the most bang for your bridal buck. While there are opportunities around every corner to cut back on the extras, some details are inherently economical, so you’ll want to take advantage. Here are a few of our favorite ideas that will add pizzazz without busting your budget.
Save on excessive décor costs by hosting your wedding in a naturally beautiful setting. Your guests will enjoy being at a vibrant garden setting or an architecturally stimulating site without noticing the lack of added adornments.
Go with the Season
When in doubt, turn to the season for inspiration. In-season foods and flowers are often less expensive and easier to find while adding a festive touch.
Candles are an inexpensive way to add elegance and highlight areas of interest. Whether floating candles as centerpieces or pillar candles in hurricane lamps to enhance radiance, the result is always romantic…and inexpensive.
Hors d’oeuvres passed by tuxedoed waitstaff can be elegant, but can seriously drain your catering budget. Instead, consider instead an appetizer table infused with creative displays – even crudités can be done tastefully. A stylish display will enhance the ambiance of your cocktail space.
Substitute hand-constructed gum paste or sugar paste flowers for fresh fruits or flowers – an inexpensive alternative that is equally as stunning.
Go for Impact
Making a grand entrance does not necessarily have to mean arriving in a glamorous stretch limo. Ditch the chauffeured ride and recruit a (sober) friend or family member with a sweet set of wheels to transport you in posh style for the part of your wedding that will have the most dramatic effect.
Enlist crafty friends and family members to assist you with every logical aspect of your wedding. From invitations to favors, adding a personalized touch will create one-of-a-kind keepsakes customized to your taste, style – and wallet.
Go for Double Duty
Thinking twofold will not only help you cut floral costs, but it will also help to banish the surplus of wilted leftovers at the end of the night. Bouquets can serve as cake table décor, ceremony flowers can be transplanted to your reception site, and centerpieces can double as favors. Your guests will be none the wiser, we promise.
