Quick Guide to Affordable Wedding Décor

Everyone wants a dream wedding but when you’re on a budget, perfecting every aspect of this dream can be tricky. People often think that the key to a good wedding is money and the more you spend the better it will be. However, this isn’t always the case and in the past few years brides on a budget have been designing and making their own decorations. Wedding décor is undoubtedly the most subtle and yet the most dominantly eye catching part of any venue and by being a little creative you can easily create your fairy tale wedding.

If you’re going for a more rustic themed wedding it is important that you take advantage of the space you have in your venue. For example if the room has pillars or low hanging beams you might want to consider combining fairy lights and greenery to wrap around them. This will create a beautifully ethereal woodland look that will just look magical as the night goes on. Additionally, one of the biggest trends of this year is to use naturally picked wild flowers for your centrepieces; it is not only incredibly beautiful but it will cost you next to nothing.

When working with a venue with a high ceiling you can often struggle to create a warm and intimate atmosphere without spending large amounts of money on fabric to be draped from the walls. A quick and easy way around this is to use light and hanging decorations throughout the room to match with your chosen theme and colours. Wooden wreaths and hanging lanterns are perfect for creating the right depth and magic that all weddings need.

Sometimes affording the venue alone can be difficult but equally if you choose the right venue, you don’t need to spend large amounts of money on décor. Venues with character such as barns or old stone buildings often only need very minor additions such as bunting, fairy lights or flowers.

These are just a few of the many ways that you can ensure that you have both a beautiful and affordable wedding day. For more advice and help to bring your wedding venue to life contact Creative Cover Hire today on 01772 614461 or drop us a quick email on or through our contact form.
