Weddings on a Budget

Unique Ideas for a Wedding

 

There are many cute and unique things that you can do to add an overall theme to your wedding.

Organic Ambience

 

The latest trend is leaning towards more rustic and organic ambiance. This trend not only lends to a minimalist approach in planning, but it taps into natural decor that can be found in the outdoors free of charge!

 

The ceremony and reception might be held in intimate outdoor venues such as:

  • On a ranch
  • Botanical garden
  • A beautiful backyard
  • Vineyard

 

Wedding flowers would consist of wildflowers that can be handpicked and arranged with various greenery.

Reception Food might include wild game or turkey with roasted vegetables and rustic loaves of bread.

 

Wedding Dress would be simple and form-fitting.

 

Coffee-House Wedding

 

A unique approach to a laid-back, simple wedding! This is the ultimate choice for those of you who are coffee lovers and prefer a more urbanistic boho theme.

 

Having your coffee-house wedding could easily be held in someone’s home, backyard or a rustic brick area such as a patio cafe or your local coffee house.

Decorating with rustic, organic items such as burlap, browns and dark cream colors, twigs of greenery and candlelight throughout provides a warm, inviting atmosphere.

 

Guests would be limited to family and close friends.

The food and drink would, of course, be coffee, deep red wines, tiramisu, and chocolates.

 

The bride would be dressed in a vintage pink blush or champagne colored tea length dress.

 

Instead of the cake cutting ceremony, replace it with “His and Hers” coffee mugs filled with a favorite coffee and topped off with whipped cream to serve to each other through intertwined arms.

 

Pancake Breakfast Wedding

 

Why not combine your wedding with the ultimate comfort food for breakfast?

 

There’s nothing like a piping hot stack of pancakes while celebrating the joy of marriage. You can fit this easily into any wedding budget.

 

The venue could be on a patio in someone’s backyard or the gardens of a local Bed and Breakfast.

 

Opt for a pancake wedding cake where layers of thick fluffy pancakes are stacked and decorated. Roses made of butter sit along the sides of the tall tiers while raspberries and strawberries give the overall cake a pop of color.

 

Peach bellinis and juice spritzers would tickle the tongue of your guests.

 

Regardless of where your wedding is held, or what theme you choose, you will have a joyous day to celebrate with your loved one.
