Maximise Your Impact (Part Two)
Brides and grooms are often looking for something memorable for their wedding, however budgets don’t always stretch to have high impact extras. Below are some tips on saving money without losing any style and keeping it memorable!
Fabric is often a lot cheaper than premade sashes and can look as good!
You can use ribbon to decorate your tables, chairs, flowers and if you’re having a marquee well place ribbon strips can add a dash of colour in all the right places.
Get creative with your favours. Guests love the personal touch; a stone with the guest’s name on it, cupcakes, cookies, a special thank you card, guests really appreciate the time it takes to thank them for attending.
Antique shops are great places to find unique, quirky vases for your table centres.
You could even source some interesting glass bottles which create a really nice effect at a simple summer wedding.
Guests love these quirky details to weddings, and they make fantastic photo opportunities.
Personalised Table Plans
I am going to make our table plans, firstly to save costs, but also so that I can personalise it to our wedding. We are naming out tables after streets in Ankh Morpork, a city in the popular fantasy novels by Terry Pratchett. They are my absolute favourite novels and h2b has let me bring my favourite novels into our wedding!
You can personalise your table plan any way you like! Guests will love to see photos of you and your h (he won’t be 2b at that point!) incorporated into your plan. A lot of couples are naming tables after the years they’ve been together, which gives guests a little insight into your relationship.
A lovely touch to weddings, and affordable wedding favours, are scratch cards or lottery tickets.
Your guests can share in the joy and excitement of your special day while at the same time having the chance to win the big bucks!
The only problem is that if they do win, you won’t get a share!
