Learn How To Have An Affordable Wedding Reception


Having a beautiful wedding reception is often one of the most essential parts of a wedding. Many couples are now choosing to spend less on the overall cost of their wedding because they do not want to start their marriage off in debt. You can create a beautiful wedding reception without having to spend a fortune to do so. Use the following guide to learn how to choose and decorate the perfect wedding venue.

Choose the Venue

There are many options available when it comes to a wedding venue. Many people do not realize that there are many social clubs in communities that rent out their facilities for people to use for weddings and special events. You can rent a social club facility for a fraction of what you would pay to rent a large event space from a hotel or conference center. These venues book quickly so it is important to make arrangements as soon as you possibly can.

Create a Package Deal

Many of the social clubs have tables and chairs already at the facility. If you ask them, they may allow you to rent the tables and chairs from them, as well. This allows you to have all of the most important elements at the venue so that you do not have to worry about delivery and set up of the items. The facility may also have a bar on site that is available for rent during your wedding reception. Venues that have bars often supply a bartender with the event and charge a flat rate for the liquor and the bartending services. This allows you to have an open bar at the reception and save money and time by not having to run around buying liquor and hiring a private bartender to work for you.

Decorate the Venue

Decorating the venue with affordable decorations will not be difficult. Create a backdrop for a photo booth by buying black fabric at a fabric shop. Add equal parts of fabric softener and water into a spray bottle. Spray a wall with the fabric softener and then press the fabric against the wall and smooth it out. The fabric will stick to the wall and easily peel away when your party is complete. You can then simply wash the wall with soapy water to return it to its original condition.

If you are willing to be creative, having a great, affordable wedding will be easy for you. There are many more affordable wedding decorating ideas available online and if you ask for help from your friends and family, creating numerous table settings, gift bags, and place cards will be a breeze and can serve as a great bonding experience too.

Exploring Birthday Party Planning Ideas

Hello, my name is Trinity Billings. I am crazy about throwing wild birthday parties for kids and adults alike. Everyone should have a birthday party thrown in their honor after another year passes by. When I was a young kid, my parents always made a big deal about my birthday despite a lack of funds or time. As I grew older, I slowly realized all of the effort they put into making me feel special. As a result, I vowed to return the favor whenever I could. Today, I always throw my parents a big bash by renting tents, tables, chairs and decorations from event coordination companies. I work closely with party planners to make every event as special as can be. I hope to update this site with ideas that will inspire others to do the same for their loved ones. Thank you for visiting.
