Planning your own wedding can be as tricky as it is exciting. Putting everything in the right place to create a luxurious wedding reception theme is not always a walk in the park especially when you do not have the budget for it. But this doesn’t mean you should settle for a mediocre reception.
There are so many ways to make a low-budget reception appear expensive. You just have to be creative enough to stretch your imagination a little further. Getting assistance from a professional wedding planner makes things a lot easier, but even so you need to be aware of what should be done. Here are several practical ways to make a low-budget wedding reception look expensive as suggested by A Fine Touch Ltd.
Low-budget Motif that looks Expensive
Many couples get caught up in the whole idea of sticking to customary wedding reception themes such as lavish wedding gardens, resorts, and high-end golf courses. Steer clear of such spaces unless you can afford them.
Also, avoid venues that require a lot of décor installations. With the help of an experienced wedding planner, you can find a simple venue with special features and ornamentation. That way, you just need to add a few furnishings of your choice to complement the existing beauty and décor of the venue, and to bring out your preferred wedding reception theme.
Be Creative with Decorations
The cost of décor doesn’t really matter; what matters is how far you are willing to go with it in insofar as creating an attractive wedding theme is concerned. Even with the cheapest decorations, you can still come up with something unique.
This is where you put your creativity and attention to detail to test. Items such as colored lights, candles, drape fabrics, flowers, faux trees, and balloons are cheaper options that can transform a great deal of your wedding reception.
Commonsense dictates that the bigger the space the more money you spend on its décor. Choosing a smaller venue will therefore save you a lot in terms of décor, time and other fittings like chairs and tables. However, this might force you to lower the number of guests to avoid congestion. But it’s better to have fewer guests than spend money on a spacious venue that will end up looking empty.
Faux Flowers for Your Centerpiece
Buying fresh flowers for your wedding reception is going to cost you a fortune. A cheaper way to decorate your reception with flowers is to go for the faux option. This is very cheap and adaptable as it can be transferred from one venue to next without a hitch.
