Even before our wedding date is fixed, we start searching the Internet and looking at beautiful pictures of wedding decor on Pinterest. We start creating mood boards, are fully convinced that we want our décor to be just the same as the picture we’re drooling over. However, we get a reality check when we actually start planning our wedding - we realize the amount of money that is being spent on the venue, food, clothes, invites, gifts and, of course, the decor! Thus, to make life easier for you, we have some awesome décor ideas which cost less but surely look expensive and luxe.
1. Quality over quantity
Embrace simplicity and keep the number of wedding functions as low as possible. The more functions you have, the more money needs to be spent on the décor. Getting minimalistic twig work done gives your event design an edge above the usual floral decor at a wedding venue. Image: Pretty Much Décor On Instagram
2. Use embroidery hoops
Remember the embroidery hoops used by our grandmothers? Well, they can be used now to create a Parisian look at your wedding. You could use sequin or lace fabrics to add a twist to the hoops. This will look offbeat and beautiful.Image: Devika Narain On Instagram
3. Light up your decor
It is more economical to use bulbs over fairy lights. The effect of multiple bulbs hanging will make it look magical and would light up your function too.Image: Devika Narain On Instagram
With its rustic feel, brass just adds a traditional vibe to wedding décor. We have enough brass vessels in our homes which can be stuffed with flowers and used as table centrepieces too.Image: Rani Pink Love On Instagram
7. An air of elegance
Who says balloons are just for kids’ birthday parties? Buy translucent balloons and fill them up with glitter. They will shine throughout the evening and would be a cheap yet classy décor item for your functions. You could also make balloon buntings by sticking small balloons into a chain and hanging them.

8. Glitter glitter
Glitter can instantly brighten up your evening at a low cost, although the use of glitter needs to be kept to minimum. For instance, you can buy rose gold glitter sequinned table cloth in bulk from the market and dress up your evening. It is chic, classy, fun and absolutely gorgeous!

12. Candlelight magic
Off season flowers can sometimes really add to the cost of your wedding decor. A smart and cost-effective alternative is candles or diyas.
