Here is a money saving tip to kill two birds with one stone.
When planning your wedding decor, think outside of the box, or rather, outside of the candlescape. While most venues have some sort of basic centerpiece you can use, most brides want something more personal.
Here’s an interesting idea. Use cakes or candies. An arrangement of beautifully decorated cupcakes or petit fours in the center of each table with a small tea light (battery operated) creates an unusal centerpiece AND you can use the cakes instead of the groom’s cake or the wedding cake.
Or try using mesh bags of candies for your favors and arrange those in the center of each table as the centerpiece.
One cost, two uses!
