Who said a cheap wedding has to be a poorly decorated one? Certainly not anyone with sense or economic savvy, that’s for sure. When it comes to decorating a wedding on a budget, all one needs is a few unique & inexpensive wedding decorations ideas.
You’re Going to Need Lots of…
If you want to decorate your wedding without breaking the budget, you’re going to need plenty of balloons, ribbons, raffia, candles, pictures, picture frames, napkins, table cloths, fruits (fake or real), and even fruit bowls.
You’re probably wondering why you need these particular items, right? Well, that’s simple — it’s because these are cheap wedding decor items that can be purchased in bulk for PENNIES. You can use these simple wedding decorations to enhance the atmosphere of both the reception hall and the ceremonial area.
Quick Tip: These decorations should be purchased in colors that match the theme of your wedding. Pink & Black, Pink & White, Black & White, Pink & Blue, White & Blue, Etc.
Wedding Decorations Ideas – How to Use the Items
Balloons & Raffia: Tie these decorations to everything & anything in the reception area. Alternate between colors and make sure the balloons are not too bunched up; small groups of 2 to 3 spaced-out evenly is recommended.
Candles: Place these on tables as centerpieces and/or in other areas around the reception hall. With wall brackets, candles can even be used as cheap wall decor.
Pictures & Picture Frames: Simple pictures of the bride & groom — before the wedding obviously — are a great way to decorate the wedding area. Like balloons, the pictures should be spread out evenly in groups of 3-4.
Napkins & Table Cloths: This is one of the more over looked wedding decorations ideas. Alternate colored napkins & table cloths. I.E. The first table will have a pink table cloth with blue napkins, while the next has a blue table cloth with pink napkins, and so on and so forth.
Fruit & Fruit Bowls: These can be easily used as lovely table centerpieces and/or combined with cut flowers and used as aisle decor. Colorful fruit is far cheaper than using massive amounts of cut flowers, yet it’s just as beautiful when used in the appropriate ways.
If you can’t save money with these outstanding wedding decorations ideas, well, then there is little hope of you decorating your wedding on a small budget.
