Organizing weddings can be a pretty stressful affair, especially if you’re working on a tight budget. The fact that your budget isn’t huge doesn’t mean that your inexpensive nuptials have to look and feel cheap. All you’ll need are a few simple elements that will turn your ceremony into a must-go event on a budget. Read on to find out how to achieve that.
Champagne for the class
No good party can pass without some bubbly. There are some bottles that are budget-friendly, and you can get a bottle of high-quality champagne for as low as 10-12 bucks. Champagne also has a double role – aside from its taste, it can work as an amazing center-piece if arranged with style in a basket or a vintage ice bucket. Also, a tower of champagne glasses looks like a million dollars.
Bring on the flowers
Flowers are an essential element of every wedding, but they can be very expensive if you don’t know where to look. If you strategically place flowers around the venue and if you choose the right kind of flowers your budget will not suffer as much. If you replace expensive orchids with some more affordable flowers, you won’t have to spend a fortune. To additionally save up some money you can get one big floral statement piece that will catch your guests’ attention. This way you’ll make the venue feel luxurious and classy and you’ll save some money in the process. Place it where everyone can see it and your guests will certainly remember it forever.
Have a grand entrance
Make sure your guests are welcomed with style and luxury they deserve, and it will become the talk of the town. Use strategically placed flowers, clever décor and nice lighting to set the atmosphere for the event. If you do that, nobody will even notice other less presentable sides of your wedding. Since the entrance will be the first and the last thing they see for the night, make sure they remember it. You can decorate the entrance area with candles for a romantic, but inexpensive way to set the tone and make an impression on your guests with a little bit of class. Candles are super effective but also very cheap, and you can get 100 pieces for as little as 10 dollars.
Arrive in style
How you arrive is another thing your guests will certainly remember about the wedding. Arrive in style and make a memorable impression. There are numerous agencies that offer chauffeur service in Sydney at reasonable prices and you’re bound to get a ride to the venue fit for a movie star. Choose a vehicle that fits your wedding theme and style, and your entire wedding will be an event to remember.
Bigger is not always better
If you have doubts on how to decorate your venue, opt for simple and minimalistic look. This look is getting more and more popular when it comes to wedding venues, because it’s stylish enough but requires fewer expenses. Keep things simple, don’t overfill the space with details and don’t mix different styles and themes. White, pastel and ivory will always be in, so you can’t really go wrong with them. Simple is usually the best way to go.
