If the wedding party decorations are giving you a hard time because you’re trying to save some money, then it’s time to rethink your wedding decor strategy. Rather than focus on overly expensive things or on perfecting every last detail of the decorations, why not use a few of these inexpensive wedding decor ideas? These decorations are cheap, elegant, and they can help liven thing up quite a bit.

The Best Inexpensive Wedding Party Decorations…

Candles: Simple, inexpensive, elegant. Place these along walls, on full-height candle stands, and on all of the tables. For that extra “wow” effect, get transparent stickers with the initials of the bride and groom and apply them to the candles.

Photos: Select around 6-7 photos of the bride & groom (before the wedding obviously) and then make numerous copies of each one. Get some inexpensive frames (a simple white/black will work) and then begin using them as a decoration. This wedding decor idea can be used for tables (3 pictures at the center of the table facing outward) as well as for wall decoration (small groups of 3-4 pictures spaced evenly throughout the reception hall).

Flowers: Cut flowers are the best option (in terms of flowers) for wedding party decorations, obviously. The downside though is that they aren’t the wisest of choices when trying to save some money. Instead, what you can do is go with flowering potted plants which have been tied with ribbons and raffia. With the right sprucing up & placement, you won’t get any raised eye brows, as they’ll look just as beautiful and elegant.

Napkins & Table Cloths: Alternate each one with the theme of the wedding. If you have pink table clothes, use white napkins, and vice versa. It may sound simple, but it creates a very appealing effect and does so at a bare minimum of cost to you.

Balloons: These are synonymous with “celebration” which is exactly what the wedding reception is. Theme colored balloons placed sparingly amongst the reception hall will be able to add that “celebratory” mood without the cheap look of a kid’s birthday party. (2 Theme Colors and nothing more!)

It might sound far-fetched, but you could handle ALL of the decorating with just the wedding party decorations listed above. It’s not flashy, it’s not snooty, it’s not fancy-schmancy; it’s just an inexpensive, simple, & incredibly elegant solution to a very large wedding problem.
