We all know that weddings can get pretty expensive, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice that elegant feel you’ve always dreamed of. Here I have 10 Ways to Elevate Your Wedding, that won’t break the bank.
Even if you just order some for close family and friends, they are totally worth it.
If you go with an invitation suite, make sure you order invitations that match your wedding theme and colors.
In addition, your photographer will want to photograph the bride’s dress and veil, his and her’s shoes, ties, pocket squares, cuff links, watches or memorabilia, etc.
If you have any items that will be relevant to the reception it’s always good to include these as well such as ribbons, lace, favors, etc.
These detail photos will elevate your wedding photos immensely, and help you really remember the day.
It can be as simple as a name with a pretty silk ribbon tied, placed on your table settings. Even if you just have them on your head table, your photographer can capture them.
If you’re not interested in learning calligraphy, there are many artists on Etsy that do these services.
You can also use white or black table linens and then just use color for the napkins to save on cost.
This is more about creating an overall mood or ambiance. Your guests aren’t going to care about what’s directly on their table.
Your photographer may even have detail items they can bring with them to set in the space to give it something extra.
There you have it! 10 ways to elevate your wedding that won’t break the bank. Below you can find examples of what we just talked about from a styled shoot I did with some local Michigan wedding vendors! You can find all their information below!
