Decoration ideas for outdoor weddings? The best advantage of outdoor weddings is that you can make many decorations using nature itself, or sometimes do not even have the need for decorations.
The decorations will also count on the month of the year the wedding is being held. Make sure the decorations are made in such a manner that they do not come off their place due to breeze, or the candles do not go off, or something similar does not happen.

Flowers are the best alternatives for decorations in outdoor weddings. You can also use wind chimes for decoration, just make sure that the wind does not cause them to make more noise. For adding a special glow to the wedding, you can use lantern lighting instead of conventional ones.
Wedding Favors
It is not necessary that for wedding favors you have to spend a lot. There are some appropriate and inexpensive choices for favors such as candles wrapped with ribbons, flowers with a thank you message for attending the wedding, pictures of respective guests clicked while enjoying the wedding and signed by the couple, and similar other simple gifts.

The favors that you choose should be creative and have a personal touch to it. In case of a beach wedding, you can choose seashells as presents, after adding a personal touch to favors. Similarly, there are many other simple and beautiful things that are suitable to be given away as wedding favors.
Wedding Cake

If you do not intend to spend much on the wedding cake, you can choose a two- to three-layered cake and add small flower petals as toppings. Keep the cake on a heightened table top, so that the presentation will be good.
You can also ask the wedding administrators if they can arrange a light focus to be thrown on the cake, so that it will be the center of attraction. In order to reduce the expenses on the wedding cake, ask the cake shop to frost the cake and not decorate it, and also ask for butter-cream instead of fondant.
These are some outdoor wedding ideas on a budget. When it comes to decorating the outdoor wedding centerpieces, venue, cakes, and arranging for the occasion; do not compromise on the quality and attractiveness of the decorations, just to save on expenses. You can certainly plan an outdoor wedding in a beautiful way, even though you have budget constraints.
