2. Get Creative with Decorations
As you think about decorations for your Wedding or Wedding Reception, the cost of purchasing flowers can add up very quickly. Think about other decorations you can use to help bolster the look and feel of your wedding. One popular theme is rustic country décor. You could take some basic twine and wrap it around the bottom of a glass vase or mason jar to give it that custom DIY look. Instead of standard table runners, think about using rolls of craft paper. You can leave it plain or decorate the craft paper to match your theme. DollarDays also stocks a variety of both traditional and LED candles as well that can be used to dress up your tables.
