Matches may be made in heaven, but weddings happen right here on earth, under pervading pressure of tight budgets. Your wedding is a once in a lifetime event, so it's got to be like you've always planned it to be, but sadly, you don't have enough funds. No worries! Allow me, your low-budget wedding planner, to help you so that you can save enough money to buy the wedding gown that you've always dreamed of. The biggest clue for making wedding decorations on a budget is to ensure that these decorations look equally glamorous, and this can be achieved with a little bit of creative thinking. So, my lovely bride to be, put on your creative thinking hat and let's get working.
Who says, money can buy class? The point is, whoever said that, is surely wrong. Wedding centerpieces don't have to be extravagantly expensive to look classy. Heard of floating candles? Yeah! That's where I am getting at. Firstly, you'll find floating candles dime in a dozen and that too in various shapes, sizes, colors and if you want fragrances too. Rent bowls of same sizes, buy some flowers (not of great quality, as we'll need only petals) and floating candles of your choice. The plan is simple - pour in some water, sprinkle some flower petals to cover the top surface of the water and place a floating candle in the center of the bowl. Voila!!
I know you want your wedding gazebo to look picture perfect, and I've got the to perfect idea for that. Tulle is a thin, netted and reasonable fabric. What's more? It's cheap, when compared to satin or silk. Moreover, it gives the whole dreamy look, as it is shiny and looks elegant. Buy enough of that, because that's going to be your prime decorating item for the gazebo. As for flowers for the gazebo, go in for seasonal flowers, as they are cheaper and easier to find.
Before you begin with the hall decorations, make sure you have decided on a color scheme. This will give an idea of the materials to be bought and the available alternatives. Inexpensive material, if used in style, can add copious amounts of elegance to the decorations. Fabrics like tulle, ribbons and seasonal flowers are simply great to decorate with. There is no need to go overboard with flowers all around the place, hence, use minimal flowers. Tie the backs of the chair with tulle and ribbons to add a touch of sophistication and uniformity.
You may, as a couple decide to give wedding mementos or wedding favors to your guests, as a souvenir of your wedding. This is a part of wedding reception decorations as you near the time to leave for honeymoon and bid your goodbyes. On budget, wedding favors are personalized bookmarks, mini-lanterns, themed coasters or candles. Your wedding favors don't have to be opulent in any form. However, make sure, that they are personalized, so that your guests feel thanked, and cherish the memories of your wedding day in years to come.
To keep your wedding on a budget, talk to your partner-to-be. Wedding is a day of your union with your love, to be celebrated by both of you. It's a wise idea to go in for an economic and wisely planned budget, as you can always spend the saved money on a bigger plan, such as buying a car or a house, or renting a place. A wedding is a once in a lifetime opportunity, so make sure it goes well. I hope your wedding is as beautiful and special as you want and wish you a happy wedded life!
