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.
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.
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.
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!
The cheapest yet one of the most impressive decor ideas for weddings. You could make an intricate rangoli at the entrance of your function and even add some glitter to it to make it look even more gorgeous!
Off season flowers can sometimes really add to the cost of your wedding decor. A smart and cost-effective alternative is candles or diyas. Setting up stands with candles and diyas throughout your wedding venue will make it look gorgeous!
