One question we get a lot is "how do we stay within budget while still having the wedding of our dreams?" The million dollar question right! This is where Pinterest gets sticky, it's a great resource but can make your expectations a bit out of your realistic budget. Well, that's where Pinterest is also winning - their DIY ideas are on point when it comes to wedding decorations! We've pulled some easy ways to make your decor go a long way while saving a lot of money.
1. Collecting everyday items and dressing them up. Wine bottles, mason jars, cans, driftwood, etc. Spray painting, adding glitter, etc. to these items makes them brand new and you can fit them exactly to your theme! Don't be afraid to ask around, people are throwing these things away everyday!
2. Make your own signs. Chances are you or someone you know has great handwriting so making your own signs is a great way to save on cost and gives your wedding a sense of uniquness.
3. Don't discount the dollar store! You can find some serious wedding decor treasures in there. Go in with an open mind and use your imagination! From frames, to candles, to vases, to rocks/pebbles; there is lots of room to go decor crazy in there!
4. Nature is your friend! Now, this one depends on what season you are getting married in, but chances are you picked that season because you like it! Sticks, wildflowers, rocks, etc. You can use these naturally or dress them up with paint/spray paint/glitter.
