Décor and Decorations



Greenery is not only beautiful, it is on trend and it is very inexpensive. You can get Garland, plastic vines, leaves, and other various leafy greens that you can hang from the ceiling, use in your bouquet and as centerpieces, or decorate the chairs, tables, or the aisles. There are so many variations of greenery that you can use, that there is really no limitations on which direction you go into, and it will be a lot cheaper than using flowers, real or fake.

Gold-Dipped Balloons 

Gold is an awesome party color and balloons are a party favorite. Put the two together and you have an instant upgraded party. Liquid gold (or platinum) paint adds some sparkle and shimmer to the atmosphere. All you need is the balloon and the paint, and you have a decoration good for your wedding and reception.


Glitzy Glasses 

Make all your glassware pop with large-crystal sugar rims in the color of your choosing. You simply dip the rims of your glassware into clear corn syrup and then dip it into the colored sugar. Give the sugar on your glasses 24 to 48 hours to set, and you will be ready to give your guest something fancy to drink out of.

Wax Paper Backdrop 

The same wax paper that is used to make your delicious cookies is the same waxed paper that can be used a backdrop at your wedding. Make it background for guest pictures or the backdrop behind the bride and groom table, or even a backdrop behind the couple in the actual wedding ceremony. At the end, you will have a soft airy look that fills your space with elegance.
