The decor is an important part of any wedding, regardless of its style. Not only does it contribute to the overall wedding aesthetics but it also sets the ambience of the party. Wedding decorations set the entire feel of the big day and can make this grand event even more memorable. That’s why they have to be planned to the tiniest details that give a special vibe throughout the whole day at both the ceremony and reception.
Since wedding decoration is so important, it should be a part of every wedding tailored to the taste of the wedding couple. Many choose to leave this job to the professionals to make their wedding as luxurious as possible. This is big money we’re talking about that not everyone can afford. However, everyone deserves to have the wedding of their dreams without breaking the bank. And even if you have the money, it’s smart to save it on decor and spend it elsewhere as a newlywed couple.
Wondering how can you make your wedding dreamy without spending heaps of money? All you have to do is order your wedding decor supplies online and create your own decorations. Buying them in bulk at wholesale prices can save you a ton, while you can still have a fairytale-looking wedding. Here are some wedding decor ideas that can suit any wedding style. They’re so easy that even the most uncrafty couples can pull out some of them.
Fabulous Paper Lanterns
You can create the most unique wedding look with the simplest decor prop there is and that’s the paper lantern. People often underestimate the beautiful touch that paper lanterns can give to any wedding style. They come in a variety of colours and sizes, and the sky is the limit when it comes to the different ways they can be placed and decorated.
What makes decorating with lanterns easy and accessible? They’re simple and inexpensive. And yet, they can create a dreamy-looking wedding. You can make them hung from the ceiling or on a rack placed on a wall, one by one or in groupings. They’re equally great both for outdoor spaces and indoor weddings.
The number of lanterns you’ll need depends on the size of the venue, and their colour on various factors like its luminosity and colours, as well as the theme of the wedding.
Popular colour palette choices are peach and mint, peach and blue, all pink, and all blue. You can never go wrong with white, gold and cream. Lace patterns can look amazing. And if you’re crafty, you can decorate plain white patterns with a design you love. It doesn’t get dreamier than that!
Unique Table Decorations
Beautifully decorated wedding tables are maybe the first things guests notice. Although many of your guests will dance the wedding out, some prefer sitting in their places, enjoying food and drink, and conversing with each other. Table decorations can create a warm atmosphere similar to a cosy home interior. In a few simple steps, you can make your guests feel like they’re home. You can achieve gorgeous-looking wedding tables on a budget with these simple decor ideas.
Lovely Table Centrepieces
Table centrepieces are very important assets. They can set the base of the overall table look. Here are some ideas for inexpensive wedding centrepieces:
- Greenery in glass vases or wooden boxes. Green adds freshness and dewiness to the wedding table. Considering your wedding theme and style, you can use either glass or wood to put it in, and there you go. If you’re worried about it staying fresh, know that an artificial greenery is also an inexpensive option.
- Flower arrangements. The DIY version of the traditional centrepiece option can look even more beautiful and vintage. Go bold with big flowers or keep it simple with a bouquet of tiny wildflowers. If you want more volume, combine it with tree branches or wild grasses. Pampas grass can look fabulous, as well.
- Tree arrangements. Tree branches make a statement table centrepieces. You can go natural or artificial with these. Choosing artificial trees, such as LED tree decorations, can be the cheaper option. And you can reuse them later to create a festive look for any occasion.
Little Things Make Big Difference
After you take care of the centrepieces, it’s time to make the rest of the table decorations. How can you achieve the decor complementing the table set up in the best way? As the centrepiece is the main decor table piece, consider its style and placement when thinking of the rest of the decor items.
For example, if you have floral/greenery wooden box arrangements, then consider wooden table numbers, cardholders, or round log slices as decoration holders. There are log pieces that are big enough to make the base for all these things together and make, along with flowers and glass candle jars. That way you can create an arrangement that looks complex in terms of decoration, and yet it’s simple to make and inexpensive.
Statement Decor Units
You can turn every piece into a wedding well-decorated unit using a little fabric and flowers/greenery. Tie bows on the chairs and stick a bouquet into them. Create a display wall, an artificial vertical garden, where you can take group pictures. You can include flowers, balloons and different colour garlands for the backdrop. Make unique welcome signs using mirrors, or a vintage drink table using an old drawer desk. You can put your little wedding decorations elsewhere, even in spots where people don’t expect them as a surprise factor.
DIY Wedding Favours
Wedding favours are a great way to tell your guests you appreciate them and thank them for being a part of your big day. However, most couples today exclude them, thinking they cost too much and are just an unnecessary expense. If you want to favour your guests but are worried about the cost, DIY wedding favours are an amazing idea.
The traditional wedding favours are becoming a thing of the past, being replaced by personalised little things that make a great impact. And you don’t have to be creative at all. Think handwritten notes attached to something practical, such as small liquor bottles, candies, bottle openers, mini chocolates, mini soaps etc. You know your guests the best and know what will make them happiest and most appreciated. So act accordingly and choose wedding favours within your budget that will make everyone rejoice.
