Funding a wedding ceremony can make an irreparable hole in your pocket. A 'cheap wedding' may seem like an oxymoron to you. However, if you plan well, you may save a few bucks for a much worthy moment. The little things that make the wedding scene look picture perfect can make or break your wedding budget, for instance, wedding centerpieces.
Instead you can save this amount and spend it on your wedding dress or your honeymoon shopping budget. The food and the occasion is something you'd want to spend more on, than a few exorbitant centerpieces. So, let's take a look at a frugal ideas that can save the day and a some pennies.
Candles as Centerpieces
Bring out all the used and never-to-be used candles that you have. If they are out of shape, use a sandpaper and a knife to get them back in shape. Make sure all the candles are of the same size. Place the candles in a high ball glass (one candle per glass) and light them up.
Pink for girls, blue for boys, and colored balloon bouquets if the baby's gender is unknown. Helium balloons are cheap and look attractive. Tie them with ribbons and let them hover around. You can make small fruit baskets as centerpieces. Since they are edible, you don't have to worry about disposing them. Fruit baskets can be used as refreshments too.
Centerpieces or table decorations make the decor vibrant and cheerful. They give the party a personal touch and manage to silently say a lot about the host. In a practical sense, centerpieces are a way of recycling too. After all, where else would you use the dried twigs from your garden or the used candles!
