Many couples are trying to make their wedding budget stretch further. Saving money on wedding decorations is something many brides will consider. But you can still create an elegant atmosphere in your reception venue without spending very much money. Here are 5 places in the UK that you can get cheap wedding reception decorations.
This may come as a surprise to many people. No longer is it just bread and coffee that you find on the aisles in Asda and Tesco. The big stores have large homeware departments where you can get all sorts of items for less. I've bought big bags of tealights, tealight holders, candles and plenty of flower vases from them. With a little bit of imagination, you could make some very tasteful reception table centerpieces from these items. The only problem is the stock does change frequently. Once they've sold out of a particular item, they may not get any more in stock.
You can get ribbons, artificial flowers, confetti and place name cards from this superstore. And you can also get all the supplies to make you own wedding invitations if you want. You can see if there is a store near you by going to hobbycraft.co.uk.
Confetti are the big name in retailing when it come to supplying wedding accessories and decorations. You can get just about anything including decorated balloons,wedding favors and gifts for the bridesmaids. You can shop online at confetti.co.uk or you can visit one of their bricks and mortar stores around the UK.
If you think that the stuff for sale of eBay is just a load of old junk, think again. There are lots of great wedding items for sale, much of it at bargain prices. There are plenty of small one-person businesses that operate with eBay as their shopfront. They can get those hard-to-find items that you don't often see in high street shops. Maybe you want some red rose petals, or ostrich feathers or silk tropical flowers. You don't have to look any further than Ebay.
Don't forget this retail giant when you're planning your wedding. Go down to the Marketplace section and you will find artificial flowers, candles and votives. And with prices as low as a pound for vases, you can create your wedding flower centerpieces yourself. Worried that you'll have 12 vases at the end of your wedding? With such a low price you can afford to give your wedding reception decorations away to your guests, as a present.
