Pick pastel fabrics

When in a fix, pick pastels! Choosing pastels as a colour theme is a fab idea- not only does it look classy and luxurious, is easy to pull off and its very hard to go wrong with! Use pastels as a decor theme to make the decor soothing on the eyes and classic!

Choose your florals well and use them smartly

You don't need expensive flowers like orchids to make your decor stand out. There is so much that can be done even using the humble rose, carnations, mogra and genda, which are super cheap as compared to exotic flowers. Floral walls are a great way to get a luxe backdrop that doesn't cost a lot, and roses in floral walls, whether you stick to one colour or a combination looks great! But don't add too much colour, monotone or a combination works better.

Combine florals with paper decor

Combining simple florals with some paper decor is also a great idea to keep it classy. They add a lot of colour and character to the venue! Plus paper decor is super economical!

Use household items that can translate as luxe ideas

Mason jars, glass bottles which are painted or even pickle jars work really well as statement decor pieces or even in centrepieces! Use them effectively with some pretty florals for a great look. These are simple, cheap things which can make your wedding look great! Even old books, kites and umbrellas work really well as a decor idea when used creatively! Here are some more ideas.

Using fairy lights in your decor is a very pretty but budget-friendly idea! They come cheap, and look magical when used right! Use them in backdrops, hanging inside bottles or mason jars or even for the entrance decor- pretty pretty!

Pick a place that doesn't need much

Picking a wedding venue which is already pretty and doesn't need a lot of fixing to make it look good can also save you a lot of money! There are wedding venues which have things in place and all they need is just minimal decor!

Look for some internationally trending ideas

Look abroad for some inspiration! Getting some cool props, a polaroid Photobooth or creatively hanging photos is an awesome idea! Of course, stay glued to WMG for such inspiration!

Put quotes around

Hang some cool or romantic quotes around, which will look new and refreshing. A lot of decor guys rent these out as well, so you need not spend money on getting them made.

A simple mandap looks great too!

The mandap can really eat into a chunk of your decor budget. While an elaborate one looks awesome, a simple one can sometimes look even better! Pick one in your budget and save big while making it look great! So, ready for a rocking Pinterest-worthy budget wedding?
