With wedding season in full bloom, we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate all the happy couples coming together, which is why we’ve welcomed you all with wedding week 2014! With the sweetness of love in the air and on the web, this year’s wedding week reflects all the joys of what it means to celebrate a devoted union. From the overwhelming moments of ecstatic delight to the jovial jive of the dance floor, we’re here to offer up some DIY, budget friendly wedding ideas to ease the planning process so you can make your wedding vision a reality.
Determine a few things that you deem as essential on your big day and allow yourself to splurge. For some, that would be the photography or videography, for others it may be an open bar. That being said, it is important that you are able to enjoy your day without feeling paranoid about your reception spending. Also, be weary of any DIY ideas that require you to allocate your time to projects right before the wedding. The last thing you want is the stress and hassle of prepping a DIY photo-booth or a DIY dessert table.
A lot of people offer up amazing ideas about ways to cut costs for a wedding celebration, but sometimes at the expense of a dreamy big-day. This is why we’ve designed some decor solutions that will get you more bang for your buck.
Flowers have been known to be a hefty cost for a wedding, so we’ve come up with an affordable centerpiece solution for under $35 per table (including flowers) that takes minimal time to create. Considering the average wedding size is about one hundred people, we’ve based our calculations on 10 tables of 10 people.
Our centerpiece solution includes a gorgeous Silver Mercury Glass Vase, a Set of 4 Mercury Glass Candle Holders, and darling, affordable flowers.
You can get 6 bunches of Baby’s Breath for around $55 at Sams Club. For 10 tables of 10 people you will need 5 bunches. This allows for extra just in case!
There are around 10 stems per bunch and you need about 5 stems per vase. We found that filling the vases with more water was essential to making sure all of the stems were submerged after styling.
Check out these ideas for additional matching décor in Silver & Lilac:
Lilac Purple Honeycomb Paper Flowers with a tuft of Baby’s Breath make wonderful, affordable chair accents.
Fill a pretty Lilac Purple Favor Bag with chocolate, candies, or other small gifts and pair with our Mercury Glass Silver Bell Place Card Holder to share the love with guests on your special day.
Make a simple, elegant chandelier with a 20″ Lilac Purple Paper Lantern and a 10″ Wisteria Purple Paper Lantern dangling just below.
We hope you’ve enjoyed our Lilac Purple & Silver Mercury Glass inspiration. Please note that our Mercury Glass is available in both Silver & Gold, and our Favor Bags, Paper Fan Flowers, and Paper Lanterns are available in a vibrant selection of colors to match to your palette.
