Are you getting married this summer? Have you crossed everything off of your wedding checklist? Weddings can be very expensive and sometimes you just don’t know where you want to start. Well, I am here to help you.
Recently my sister got married and lets say it was a huge eye opener as to what it takes to plan a wedding. She was married in her back yard and though we spent a lot of money working on the yard, the wedding itself did not cost much. She rented a tent with chairs so we didn’t have to worry about that, but when it came to wedding decor, there were a few things to figure out.
That’s when I turned to Oriental Trading Co. where I got signs for the wedding, the ring barer pillow and flower girl basket. They also had some great decor items like candles and vases, guest books and fountains! Really they do have a great selection for any wedding decorating supplies you need. They really are my cheat sheet for wedding decorating.
As you can see the ring barer pillow and flower girl basket my sister choose is really very classic and very cute. You can add a few things to both to add some color and personalize this set and that is why I love it so much. You can use this again and again. Hopefully in the form of giving it to another person to use!
For the reception decor these simple tissue paper balls are so cute and really add a great festive air to the reception and they are not that expensive to make. We used colorful ones, but you of course can tailor this to your wedding colors. Also simple place settings can create such an elegant look. These are disposable plastic plates and really they looked amazing!
This wedding was inexpensive and very elegant thanks in part to Oriental Trading Co. You can find many of these items or things to make these items on their website. Do you have some great wedding decor tips? Share them with us
