You want the tables used for your wedding breakfast to look glamorous and fashionable. However, some people spend thousands of pounds to get the best results. Those of you on a tight budget might struggle to realise your dream if you don’t try to make savings. Today, I’ll show you some great ways of creating the perfect breakfast table display without breaking the bank.
You can use the money you save to pay for a better honeymoon or wedding dress. At the end of the day, who in their right mind would spend a fortune on decorations?
Hire your chair covers
There is no getting away from the fact that you will need white chair covers on the big day. To avoid upsetting your bank manager, it’s always a good idea to hire them from a reputable business. Chair cover hire is not as expensive, and it means you don’t end up with lots of useless products when the day is over. You can make the covers look more alluring by adding sashes and other accessories. With a bit of luck, you won’t pay more than about £5 per cover. In some instances, you will pay a lot less.
Make the place cards yourself
You don’t have to be a craft genius to make some cool place cards for your wedding. It doesn’t make sense to pay someone else to do the job because the service is expensive. You can look online for guides and inspiration to help you get started. However, the place cards should reflect the theme of your big day. Make sure you use colours and fonts that are in-keeping with the rest of your decorations and designs. Using ribbon is always a wise move because it can make the place cards appear more upmarket.
Use real flowers
Lots of people choose to purchase fake flowers for their wedding breakfast table. They do that because they presume it will be easier. However, you usually end up spending a lot more than you would with fresh alternatives. In most instances, you will have already contacted a florist for ceremony flowers. Get in touch with them again and see if they can provide something good for your tables. You are guaranteed to make savings because you’re already spending so much cash with that provider.
Ask venue staff to help
The staff at your chosen wedding venue might be willing to help with table decorations. So, make sure you don’t forget to ask! The team should have lots of stylish items that could add something special to your design. Perhaps they have some sleek and simple centerpieces you can customise? Maybe they stock tablecloths you could use? Anything that will help you to reduce spending is good.
That information should help you to create the best wedding breakfast table on a budget. Hopefully, you won’t have to cut back on more important elements to ensure your guests experience the utmost luxury. I hope you have the best day of your life and that you don’t get too stressed out.
