Styling your Wedding without Spending a Fortune
Comments Off on Styling your Wedding without Spending a Fortune
This week we have Kirsten of The Little Wedding Helper giving some great advice about styling your wedding venue without spending a fortune!
I often say to the couples that I work with (& often anyone else that will listen!) that it really doesn’t cost a ridiculous amount of money to make your wedding reception & celebration look amazing. I love helping couples think outside the box a little when it comes to decorating their receptions and this can often involve using beautiful items that have been loved by past generations or loved by a bride who has used them in her wedding & wants to see them pass onto another to enjoy. I guess it’s a way of recycling decoration and I love this. It’s almost like passing on the love. In these tough financial times I have really noticed couples thinking a lot more about what they are spending their budgets on, what’s important to them & wanting to create a celebration that is meaningful, personal & full of detail.
This wedding reception was held in a local village hall & a venue that I love transforming. The couple wanted a reception that all their guests felt relaxed & comfortable at. Long trestle tables were covered with white tablecloths & the runners were hired from a previous couple that I had worked with & whose mum had handmade these runners. She had also made the bunting so these were also hired.
The centrepieces were collections of vintage china & ornaments that the bride had collected over many months with some pieces being quite sentimental from grandparents & friends.
Flowers were bought from the local flower market & together created a really simple but beautiful look. I loved how a close friend made the cupcakes that doubled up as place names. This wedding didn’t cost ridiculous amounts of money but it did have massive amounts of love, detail and colour! What do you think?
