Candles are something that you can use on a budget and they resonate with romance and love. With wedding candles, you will want something that is unscented and this is often the least expensive form of candle.

By using many candles around the venue you create a warm and intimate atmosphere. Candles can be adorned with many items... something you can turn into a wonderful preparation work, either with your spouse, or your bridesmaids.

Framed Pictures

If you have pictures of you and your future spouse, you may want to place them in a photo frame and decorate with those photos. Place them throughout the venue.

Framed pictures of you and your spouse make personal and affordable DIY wedding decorations. Look for picture frames that have an elegant, expensive look, but come without the price tag. 

Planning to do a backyard wedding? Then try this decoration idea: laminate some of your favorite photos, attach them to a string and hang them around a tree or from a fence line.


Tulle represents weddings perfectly. When you look at the delicate, airy fabric, you automatically think of a wedding scene, don't you? Tulle can be wrapped around things, hung, bunched, illuminated with lights and so on.

Tulle is also ideal to make balloons and flowers look even more festive. Wrapping balloons in tulle is a popular and easy-to-make decor, as shown in the picture below. You can also use tulle instead of ribbon for attaching helium filled balloons to their base. The possibilities for decorating with tulle are endless!

Cheap Wedding Decorations with Flowers

Flowers are something that you may not be able to live without for your wedding. Make sure to choose flowers that are budget friendly and in season. If you pick a flower that is not available during the time of your wedding, you'll quickly exceed your wedding decor budget.

Cheap wedding decorations do not have to look cheap. Once you start using your imagination and creativity, great things happen. Enjoy a one of a kind decoration at your wedding without breaking the bank!
