You don’t have to have a fortune to decorate a wedding beautifully. You don’t need golden chandeliers, angel ice sculptures, or a stone carved effigy of the bride & groom. To be completely honest, a beautifully decorated reception hall requires only but a few of the right wedding decorations ideas. Luckily for you, there are a couple of those ideas below.
The Best Wedding Decorations Ideas…
– Balloons & Ribbons. It’s not tacky, it’s not “unsophisticated”, it’s NOT expensive. Theme colored balloons and ribbons are a cheap and simple way to add some flair to the reception hall without cracking open the budget. As long as you don’t go overboard with the placement of these wedding decor items — balloons should be in small groups of 2 to 3 — you won’t have any raised eyebrows among your guests.
– Napkins & Table cloths. Yes, these are indeed decorations, contrary to what you might think. Plain white is NOT the way to do it either, period. Alternate the two decoration items with your weddings theme colors for an eye-popping effect. Blue table cloth, pink napkins, blue napkins, pink table cloth, etc. It’s simple & it’s cheap, but it LOOKS expensive.
– Flowers & Fruits. Cut flowers are SUPER expensive and they are no more pretty than regular flowers (generally speaking that is). Ditch the costly cut flowers and go with flowering potted plants & bowls of colorful fruit. These two cheap wedding decor items will compliment each other nicely and they will NOT take a big chunk out of the decorating budget.
– Candles. Theme colored candles (perhaps with the bride & groom’s initials stamped with a sticker) are great for table decor. You can use 3 smaller, simpler candles OR go with one larger candle for the tables’ centerpieces. Getting a great deal on a bulk candle order isn’t difficult.
There you have it, 4 ways to spruce up the wedding reception atmosphere without having to suffer from outrageously high wedding decoration costs. Use these wedding decorations ideas, as well as the many others that are available, and you won’t have any trouble with your wedding decor goals.
