As Do-It-Yourself projects are becoming more and more popular, we are beginning to see a lot more DIY aspects incorporated into weddings. This can be a huge advantage for brides who don’t have an extravagant budget, but still want an extravagant wedding day. Many brides may think there is no way around the expensive invitations, wedding décor, and so on. But with a little imagination and creativity there are many options to make your big day look outstanding without hurting your pocketbook.
Who said the bride’s bouquet was limited to flowers alone? Creativeness is never-ending when it comes to your bouquet. Add some pizazz with crystal embellishments and ribbon. Incorporate your wedding colors through colorful rhinestone brooches or fabrics. Flowers can take up a huge amount of a bride’s budget. By using fewer flowers, and more creativity, a bride is able to still have her dream day while being budget friendly.
Paper lanterns are an extremely low-cost alternative to the traditional table décor. These lanterns are easy to find, and come in a large assortment of shapes, sizes, and even colors. Mixing up the varieties can be an easy way to fill a little table space, while still looking very appealing. Adding a few candles and flowers to this table arrangement can be the perfect finishing touch.

Guests will have a great time in this creative photo booth idea. Include random props such as clown noses, mustaches, thinking bubbles and glasses and let the fun begin!

Guests will hold on to these pictures and memories for a lifetime and you won’t have to break your budget!
