Wedding Decorations: Replace Those Streamers

Remember when wedding halls were decorated with streamers and those 3D crepe paper balls or lanterns? They looked like the same decorations you would buy for a birthday party or senior home soiree, but white. Don't forget the archway and white and silver balloons.

Wedding decorations for a fete with a very strict budget in mind have become more sophisticated by leaps and bounds. Of course, the cheapest decorations involve pilfering your neighbor's rose garden and emptying out some juice bottles. If Mr. and Mrs. Foster's roses are not quite in bloom, what about luminaries? Paper luminaries with dove, hearts or cake cut outs lining a moonlit walkway or even sitting in the middle of the table on a tile or plate can be purchased for a small amount of money. Also, you don't have to worry about collecting borrowed crystal candle holders. They can be kept by guests or they could be tossed in the recycle bin if wax did not spill in them.

Tea lights and votives around a room can look elegant on the cheap, but a luminary might move the decor from generic to personal. Have you ever given them a try?
