Trying to maximize your upcoming event budget? Rethink your decorations. One avenue to make the most of your event budget is to seek ways to save on your next event’s decor. Decor is one of the more flexible elements of your special event or wedding day. Unlike the catering costs or venue rental fee, which are typically fixed rates, there is much variation in how much you need to spend to decorate for your party. Decor is one area where you can cut corners and make adjustments to save money without sacrificing style.
Get creative with centerpieces
One of our favorite ways to save money on centerpieces is to opt for alternatives to pricey floral arrangements, such as candles, vases filled with ornaments, or props like books and bottles. You can create a customized look with beautiful detail for a low cost this way.
Cut your flower expenses
Flowers quickly add up, but they don’t have to bust your budget if you opt for budget-friendly varieties, such as carnations, baby’s breath or hand-picked wildflowers. Consider using more greenery in place of flowers to save money, too. You can also reuse wedding ceremony flowers at the reception and use your bridesmaids’ bouquets on the reception tables.
Shop resale shops, flea markets and online
The best way to save on wedding decorations? Consider secondhand decor. You’d be amazed by the variety of gently used event decor you can find at flea markets, resale shops, and online swap sites like Craigslist. There are also entire websites devoted to reselling previously owned wedding decor. Buying used can save you a considerable amount.
