Today, the team at Envi has decided to talk about Do-It-Yourself Table Decor and Centerpieces and how to have the Luxe for Less wedding on a budget!
A major addition to the wedding, is the decor! It can be as minimal or as extravagant as you wish. Lots of flowers, candles, bows, chair covers, and more. The decor gives the tone and sets the mood of the rest of your event.
Flowers can be a costly expense, especially using fresh arrangements of ornate and different types of flowers. Not to mention if you want specific hues, sizes, or out of season florals. Your costs can get higher and higher.
We did a wedding a few weeks back, and we had planning time of about two months. With a budget of $5000 for about 60 guests, live flowers would have eaten up the budget. However, we found an already made, faux floral arrangement that was a semi-tall centerpiece. Ivory hydrangeas, limes, roses, and other types of flowers. This arrangement on the total of 8 tables could have easily cost over $100 per arrangement. However, we were able to buy the pre-made arrangement for $25 at Target. They fit in the color scheme of the wedding and helped save lots of money. Instead of paying close at least $800 for arrangements, we were able to get them all for $200....saving 75% for our bride to allocate $600 to other avenues.
