DIY Tent Decoration for Your Wedding Reception (5)

Today’s guest post comes from Diana, one of our readers who helped her sister pull off DIY tour de force, on time and on budget! Here’s how she did it:

My boyfriend’s sister was trying to do a backyard wedding with a budget of $15,000 and was trying to figure out a way to decorate the tent for cheap. I volunteered to do it because the wedding was months away and it seemed like a nice thing to do (I’m not sure how I felt the day before the wedding but that’s another story). She said she wanted something like this picture.

If you’re looking for ways to personalise your wedding, or simply one aspect of it, here are some easy ways to do just that.

DIYing your flower arrangements? Check out this DIY flower guide with links to tutorials!

The other day I ran across a post right here on WeddingLovely and oh my! It reminded me just how mind-blowingly expensive weddings are, y’all!

I know, I know, you already know that, and being reminded of the horror of it isn’t  necessary. So, here’s the deal. Unless you’re lucky enough to have parents who are footing the bill or have been madly setting aside funds since you were a wee little one, you’re probably looking to save money where you can.

One of the places where it’s possible to pinch pennies and stretch dimes is with the flowers. Perhaps not the bouquet—though some people will argue that the bouquet is the easiest thing, but I don’t agree, I’m not THAT crafty—but centerpieces and decorative flowers are easier to manage then you might think, and DIY-ing it can potentially save you a fair chunk of change. It still won’t be cheap, but it’ll help take a bit off of your budget. Remember, you’ll have to put in some elbow grease, which means you’ll have to have some time a day or two before the wedding to actually get a group together to make the arrangements.
