Wedding Budgets: Have Awesome Details Without Breaking the Bank

 

1. TABLE NUMBERS OR LACK THEREOF

Add a touch of your own style for not a lot of money with creative table numbers. I've seen awesome ideas like wine bottles with numbers in the corks to wooden carved location names the bride and groom had traveled to together instead of numbers. This is always a fun detail that can add a ton of style to your reception while still being low key. 

2. CREATIVE USE OF FLORALS

Greenery is all the rage right now and honestly, it's a pretty awesome way to decorate your wedding AND reception for a lot less. Not only does it make your day look lush no matter the setting, but you can create affordable hanging backdrops and arbors, as well as line your aisleway! Just add some affordable white candles sprinkled throughout like these, and you've got yourself a romantic, minimalist wedding. Voila!

3. HEADPIECES

Want to add a little boho romance or classic sparkle to your outfit? Try finding a headpiece or floral crown that speaks to your style. If you check out Etsy, there are tons of sellers creating one-of-a-kind pieces on the cheap. You can always find something in your budget and style to add some instant romance to your veil or updo. I'm currently loving these types because they're so cute to tuck your veil under and have that classic vibe.

4. INVITATIONS & STATIONARY

Now, the graphic designer in me is clearly in love with calligraphy, awesome textured papers, and letterpressed things, but AIN'T NOBODY GOT A BUDGET FOR THAT. Or at least not this girl. So, I'm getting my invites from zazzle.com where you can design your own or pick from one of their pretty beautiful templated designs. Usually, each design is part of a suite so you can get invites, save the dates, menus, and even stamps to match! For about 200 guests, I think my design I'm looking at comes to about $150 including envelopes. THAT'S A DEAL, LADIES! So, if you're looking to save some paper on paper, check out websites like zazzle to get an awesome design for a fraction of the cost :)

5. CAKE TOPPERS

Your cake is the big detail that literally EVERYONE will see, so customize it with affordable cake toppers. As you can tell, I'm an Etsy girl at heart and that's where I've found mine for right around 20 bucks, but it's so cute! You can have a sweet quote or even your new last name (heyyyyyy). Check out some awesome finds right here.
