How to Decorate Your Wedding Venue When the Budget is Tight

Wedding Venue Decor on a Budget

Weddings can be expensive! With catering, drinks, the dress, and a wedding venue for both the ceremony and reception, the expenses can start to pile up. Brides often find themselves torn between creating the wedding of their dreams and sticking to a wedding budget. Fortunately, these two things aren’t mutually exclusive.


A great way to keep the décor for your wedding venue within a strict budget is to do some DIY decorating and bargain hunting. Below, we’ve listed several ways you can save some money on your dream wedding!


As the central décor on each table, your centerpieces should pop. However, centerpieces are something that can quickly drive décor prices up. So, the question becomes: how do you have a centerpiece that makes a statement without wreaking havoc on your budget?

The best way is to keep your centerpieces simple. They don’t have to be elaborate to make a statement.

One idea is to use branches for your centerpieces. Place some leafy greens that you cut yourself into vases and set them on the tables in your wedding venue. Leafy branches fill the space well and will cost you next to nothing to implement them into your wedding décor.

String Lights

String lights are available at many places and are very inexpensive, but they do a lot to add some romance to a room. You can use them as part of your table décor or hang them from the ceiling. They’ll provide romantic, magical lighting at a low cost.

Engagement Photos

Use your engagement photos as part of your décor! Buy some inexpensive, fun picture frames, print out your engagement photos, and place them on tables throughout the wedding venue. It gives your décor a personal touch, and your guests will love getting to see your pictures!


Candles are a great addition to wedding décor. You could even choose to use them instead of using flowers to decorate your wedding venue.

Free Printables

Paper products like signs, menus, placement cards, and the like can also end up costing a lot of money. However, many places provide free printables that can help cut down on costs without cutting down on style.
