Your wedding is a special day. There are so many things to think about such as food, dresses and decorations that it can take months, even years, to plan the perfect wedding. There are some things that you can do to add a unique look to your wedding that are affordable.


Pictures and videos are not the only ways you can remember your special day. Although you might want hundreds of pictures to give to family and friends as well as to save for yourself, why not get  canvas printing? This can be done by the photographer, and you can have the printing done before the wedding so that the picture is displayed at the reception.

Menu Cards

Whether a full meal is served or only appetizers, your guests can choose what they want from hand crafted menu cards. Find a card stock background that matches the colors of the wedding, and have the menu printed on paper that has an antique appearance. A bow can be added to the top of the menu.

Table Numbers

This is a great idea that can be used regardless of how many tables you have. The information is printed on card stock. Number each piece, and add a favorite event from your relationship to each paper. Make sure each event is different. These can be given to family and friends after the reception, or you can make a scrapbook with all of your cards and small decorations from the wedding.

What event is complete unless it has balloons? There are numerous things you can do with balloons at a wedding. Make an arch in front of the entry door at the reception, create a balloon display at the gift table, or use balloons to create a background in the church or wedding venue. Balloons can also be released after the reception as you and your spouse leave for the honeymoon.

Flowers are another universal decoration that can be used in a variety of ways. The best way to save money is to get flowers from your own garden, or find someone who has several flowers that you can pick. They can be used as details on the wedding cake, and you can include flower vases on the reception tables.


These are about the most inexpensive decoration you can get. There are candles in all colors and sizes, and you can get scented candles to blend with the season you get married. Arrange them on tables, indoor window ledges and in the front of the church or wedding hall.
