No one wants to break the bank on their wedding, but on the other hand, it’s supposed to be one of the most memorable days of your life. Here are a few tips about how you can save money but still host a beautiful wedding celebration.
1. Be Practical About Linens
Linens are the last thing your guests are going to remember if they fade into the background of the reception. Buying wedding linens direct online can be a great cost saver, especially if you’re having a reception with lots of guests and you can combine tables.
2. Keep Table Décor Simple
The only place real rose petals should be scattered is on your martial bed. Otherwise, keep the flowers everlasting. Purchase them in silk rather than organic material, and you can get a great deal by doing so in bulk. Live flowers are expensive and only last a day, but silk flowers last forever, as will the most important parts of your memories.
3. Centerpieces Don’t Need to be Complicated
Live flowers are always expensive. Complicated customized designer centerpieces are expensive. There are just certain parts of a wedding design plan that are costly and don’t need to be. If you’re willing to embrace a more cost effective alternative for centerpieces that don’t involve live cut flowers, opt for decorative elements like seashells or colored glass. Not only are these things available in bulk online or even at a craft store, but they look gorgeous during a reception. The last thing anyone is going to be thinking is why you subbed out colored glass for a short stemmed peony at a wedding guest table.
With these simple tips, saving money is as simple as purchasing in advance, opting for wholesale, and making some small alterations to your planned aesthetic. The fact of the matter is that no one is going to remember whether the flowers on the tables were real or made of silk as much as they’ll remember your vows. Keep the funds, dish out the memories.
