6 Wedding Decor Ideas That Impress for Less!

Such pretty re-purposing of an everyday item, thanks to Casa di Falcone. Just follow the tutorial for decorating the boxes and making the paper flowers, and you have these darling containers for wedding favors!
2 – Centerpiece idea: Twig-covered vase or pot
Take a cue from this rustic-style centerpiece container, found on Heart Love Always (image: Marvelous Things Photography). You could re-use simple pots or recycled jars or tins, then cover them with twigs tied with twine. Perfect for a barn wedding or a woodland theme!
3 – Place holder and favor idea: Mini pansy flower pots
Don’t these charmers just make you smile? The how-to on Intimate Weddings shares cost-saving tips, like buying the pansies in flats. But we noted an additional savings: having these adorable pots double as both place holders and favors!
4 – Ceremony decor idea: DIY paper garland
Wedding decorations crafted with paper are not only doable, they’re so pretty and affordable, too! Just play around with colors and patterns, like in this sweet heart garland at a real wedding seen on Wedding Chicks (image: Marianne Wilson Photography).
5 – Aisle decor idea: Floating flowers and candles in a bucket
Even the simplest of flowers can work their charms at your wedding. Just see how they transform this humble tin bucket styled by Your Cozy Home, floating in water along with candles. Would make lovely aisle liners, don’t you think?
6 – Outdoor reception decor idea: DIY mason jar chandelier
In place of tabletop centerpieces, why not create hanging floral decorations like this garden chandelier courtesy of Midwest Living? The ‘mason jar candle holders’ can then be given as guest favors. Cost saving again!
