As a wedding planner,you will need to stay on budget and help your bride get the most for her money if you are helping with her decor.
Whether it’s for 20 guests or 200, here are 6 tips that you can use to save money when designing a wedding:
1) Let lighting be decor
Proper lighting can change the look and feel of any space. Talk to a lighting designer about lighting tabletops and centerpieces to add glow to a room or using different colors to create mood and enhance the wedding theme. You can also rent chandeliers to add elegance to a plain indoor or outdoor space.
2) Use large, dramatic, floral arrangements only where they will be most visible
Splurge on arrangements for the entrance, stage, bar, and food stations which are the places where guests will notice them the most. Smaller arrangements can be used elsewhere.
3) Save by using simple satin as the base linen
Splurge on overlays that add interest and glamour such as those with textured weaves, embroidered flowers, or metallic sequins.
4) Mix chair styles, chair jackets and pads
This is a way to give the room an expensive “designer” look at a relatively low price.
5) Incorporate interior design elements
Candles, lamps, mirrored tabletops, or props that carry out a theme can be interesting, eco-friendly, and less expensive than flowers. And, don’t be afraid to mix good faux flowers with real ones to save money while making an arrangement look full and lush.
6) Compare the cost of buying versus renting
Thrift stores, consignment shops and flea markets often have high-end items you can use that are less expensive then the cost of renting similar things so it pays to visit them.
