A wedding can be very expensive but you can still have a nicely decorated wedding without costing an arm and a leg.
Get your wedding party to come and do the decorating the night before the wedding. If you do not have anyone standing up for you then ask friends and relatives to come and help or keep it very simple.
Lace is always a very pretty decoration to use for tying onto chairs and handrails. Tie lacy bows on places that stick out for a delicate decoration.
Streamers are fast to hang and make a big statement. Hang a few streamers from one corner to the diagonal opposite one and put a twist in it before you hang it for added décor. Hang another streamer between the other opposite corners with a twist and you will have them crossing in the center. Then hang up the center of the two streamers onto the ceiling and hang a bell or some flowers there.
Buy some white lunch bags and glow sticks. Place a rock onto the bottom of the bag to keep the bag from blowing away. Put an activated glow stick into the bag and place the bags around for a glowing party decoration.
Get some glitter and place glitter on the center of tables. You can also take plastic coated pictures of the bride and groom and place them into jars of water. The water will magnify the picture. Then place a cover that is painted or covered with fabric onto the jar. These can be placed on tables and given to guests.
Cover the tables with a cloth or use white paper and cover the tables with that. Place a small container at each setting on the table with two colored candies in it. One candy is to symbolize the bride and the other candy the groom. You can use pastel mints, candied almonds or life savers.
Balloons are always a party decoration. You can tie balloons to chairs, doorways, ceilings and walls. Any color balloon will do but the best are ones that are the same color as the bridesmaid dresses and bridegrooms outfits. Have an air pump handy to make blowing the balloons up easier and give the guests a balloon if they wish.
It is fun to decorate for a wedding by yourselves. It is a great way for the wedding party to get to know each other and you can save money while doing it.
