How To Decorate Your Wedding Beautifully On A Budget

Weddings are more often than not the complete highlight of a couple’s relationship, but we completely understand it can be difficult trying to decorate the event incredibly extravagantly when on a budget. However, the need to meet expensive wedding trends are a thing of the past, as modern weddings are all about making savings.

To help you plan a beautiful wedding, with some money still left over for the honeymoon, we have put together some ideas to help you decorate your wedding beautifully – while still on a budget.

Pick a Naturally Beautiful Setting

Often the main aesthetical aspect of a wedding ceremony is its location, which is why it is a very important factor to take into consideration when planning your big day. Therefore, the best way to save money on wedding decorations is to pick a fabulous location. This is because if the setting is already gorgeous, not a lot of work is needed to enhance the space.

By choosing to have an outdoor ceremony on a beach, in the mountains or some wonderful natural hideaways, the venue is already decorated for you. For example, you could even get married in your back garden in spring, when all the flowers are in full bloom.

Use a theme to guide you

Wedding themes are an excellent idea if you are on a tighter budget, as you only need a few elements to make a big impact on the overall impression of the ceremony. For example, if you decide to go with a boho theme, you can decorate the ceremony using fake wedding flowers and a floral wedding arch, which will give the entire feel of the day a more rustic feel.

There are a number of different themes for you to choose from, with the types of decorations ranging from floral arches, table centrepieces and flower arrangements that all suit the specific theme of the day. While a themed wedding may not be for everyone, it will enable you to have a more focused approach to planning your reception decorations.

Decorate with artificial flowers

Over the last couple of years, artificial wedding flowers are proving to be incredibly popular decoration choice for the big day. They are often a much cheaper, but still beautiful, alternative to fresh wedding flowers. By using artificial flower bouquets for weddings and table decor, they can cost you the same or less than fresh flowers, often working a lot better. You can rest assured that they will always look their best no matter the weather conditions, always being in peak bloom.
