Recycling wedding decor

I wrote about re-purposing junk as wedding decor in the last post. In this one I want to talk about reusing wedding decor. That’s right, using decor that’s been used before.

I know some might cringe at the idea but think about it, where does your decor end-up after your wedding? In the trash. Imagine how much more ‘green’ your wedding could be, and you would be doing good to the planet!

Our friends at The Lace Loft connect sellers and buyers of used wedding decor. Do give it a try or refer to someone looking to decorate on a budget.

DIY wedding lighting

Lighting is what sets the mood at a wedding. And creating diy lighting is both easy on the pocket and a great way to spend some fun time together. I compiled these ideas that I saw across the internet. They take less than an hour to do per item!
1. Dixie Cup Lights — All these dixie cup lights really are cute! They’d be ideal for a casual marriage! You could easily place them on tables instead of tealights.
3. Cupcake Liner Lights — Another super adorable idea! Cupcake liners are seen in many different colours and patterns. This could be a simple means to include touches of your own wedding colours in your lighting decoration. I could see this working very well for a colorful wedding!
4. DIY Light Columns — Leave it to Martha Stewart to come us with the best ideas… these mild columns are magnificent placed throughout your place! You will be amazed to find out how easy these are to make! They look magnificent when placed together in a cluster.
6. Tissue Paper Jar Lanterns — This is a really simple project that’s completely sweet! Use tissue paper that matches your wedding colours and these lanterns will fit in seamlessly with your occasion. Another way to infuse color into your wedding and make it look more fun if you want to break away from the old ‘all white’.
