Creating beautiful environments for wedding receptions on a budget can be quite simple, according to wedding and reception planning experts.

As you strive to give each element of the wedding reception, from centerpieces to personalized wedding favors, a thoughtful personal touch, you can actually save money while creating memorable aspects that will be cherished through the years. Following are a few tips from experts that can help you save money and make the event spectacular.

Silk Flowers Allow You To Save On Cost Of Flowers

For either indoor or outdoor wedding receptions, flowers are an important part of creating a magical and romantic tone. One way to economize, but still enjoy the effect of flowers, is to choose from the many beautiful, realistic silk flowers that are abundantly available.

One clever trick is to add silk flowers into arrangements of fresh flowers, helping to keep the floral costs down while still beautifying the reception venue. Plus, the newlyweds can use the silk flowers in their new home as a beautiful reminder of their special day.

Rose Petals Along The Entrance Pathway

For something unique and fun, you can create a dramatic entrance to a wedding reception by simply lining the entrance pathway with sweet-smelling rose petals. Your guests will immediately be in a jovial mood if you rent a bubble machine which will add extra fun and magic to the ambiance of the event.

Renting a reception tent is a good way to economize for wedding receptions and you can easily increase the romance factor by getting some nice sheer fabric and quality wide ribbon which you can use to drape around the perimeter of the canopy. You can also incorporate small white lights and wrap the tent supports or make a swag for the entryway that will add to the romantic feel.

A Personal Memento

Hand-making keepsakes to give out during wedding receptions is a trend that is growing and one that is helping to bring down costs while creating a very personal memento.

You can make unique thank you cards for your bridesmaids by embellishing simple note cards with the wedding theme colors and meaningful trinkets that can be found at a craft store. Combined with a heartfelt personal note, it will be something your bridesmaids are likely to cherish for many years.

More Romantic Wedding Facts....

I’m getting married, should I ask my wedding party to give a speech?
That is a tough question. It comes down to whether or not you intend to micromanage everything in the wedding. Speeches, much like toasts, should be voluntary. No one wants to be forced to give a speech they do not truly mean.

Making someone give a speech is a step away from writing the speech yourself and having them read it aloud. It is better for everyone if the members of the wedding party wish to do a speech because it means that they truly believe in the words they are saying. It should not be about a formality but instead a blessing on the future of the bride and groom.

If you have a real fear that no one will give a speech, you may want to evaluate who is in your wedding party. The wedding party should consist of people who love you and wish you the best. If no one in the party can or will do that on their own, you wouldn’t want them to be a part of your special day anyway.

The exception to this is if everyone suffers from severe stage fright or agoraphobia. The chances of that are pretty small.
