Any ideas for inexpensive wedding decorations?

I need some help, I am getting married in a little over two months and I need some help with inexpensive ideas for wedding decorations. The colors are purple and silver. Any suggestions? Thanks for all your help!


  1. First off is your wedding inside or outside? If outside you don't have to decorate as much cause the scenery is decoration enough. On the tables you can do a small flower arrangement with candles. Keep it simple if its outside. You don't want to take away from the natural scenery.
  2. I had a cinderlla wedding and I used Christmas icecical lights to add light around the arch we stood under. We also used flowers from garden ridge and I made all the flowers we carried and used tall candle holders and put glitter and flowers in them wraped with lace for the center pieces all toheter I prob spent around 2 or 3 hundred and it was very beautiful.
  3. http://www.bridestreasures.com/ShopSite/media/G465.jpg I just saw this picture on another answer, so if I am stealing someone else's answer Im sorry, it just was so pretty! You could easily find everything needed to do these at a dollar store. If you're not having a beachy themed wedding, just replace the sand and shells with purple and clear decorative rock. You could still use the champagne glasses (again, found at dollar stores) and maybe even tie you and your grooms name and wedding date on the glasses with silver ribbon to tie in the silver. If you did those as centerpieces it would probably cost like $5 each, which is great. One thing I am doing at my wedding is a candy buffet which adds color to my venue while doubling as my guest's favors.You can get clear glass containers at places like walmart, dollar stores etc. Candy at places like Costco on websites like candywarehouse is cheap. For purple you could do jelly beans, grapeheads, etc. Silver think along the lines of hershey kisses. Think something like this with silver instead of yellow: http://static.socialgo.com/cache/25771/image/209.jpg For other decorations, you can do purple candles (think lavender scented) on silver mirrored tiles. Very romantic looking and pretty, even more inexpensive! For flowers - freesia in a GREAT smelling, inexpensive purple flower. Gerbera daisies are pretty too. You could do purple chair bows or pew bows with tulle. Here's a couple inspiration boards if you haven't seen them already: http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/img-set/BQcDAAAAAwoDanBnAAAABC5vdXQKFkxsa2dBbzl2M1JHZWtNc19DTDVOYXcAAAACaWQKAXgAAAAEc2l6ZQ.jpg http://static.squidoo.com/resize/squidoo_images/-1/draft_lens2128757module11036922photo_1219101160wedding_colors-_purple.jpg Good luck with everything!!! :)
  4. These were my centerpieces, and I think they'll work for yours beautifully. http://www.giftsforonegiftsforall.com/product.asp?dept_id=99999908&pfid=34693 You could also do pillar candles stacked together, in hurricane lamps, or floating in glass bowls of cylinders of water. Supples can easily be purchased from A.C. Moore, Michaels, Walmart, or the dollar store. I wrapped silk ivy garlands around them and added acrylic ice to the tables (from walmart) and rose petals. I also added votive candles around them. I purchased organza chair bows and table overlays from http://www.efavormart.com They were cheaper to buy there than to rent. They have satin and organza selections. I would do some tables in purple and some in silver and mix up the chair bows. For flowers, if you have any budget for this, I would order them from http://www.fiftyflowers.com They were mentioned in a recent knot.com article for having great flowers at great prices. Or you could check your local farmer's market or grocery store. The person in charge of florals can order what you'll need. Personally, I like irises and African violets or you could mix in some light pink flowers for variety. I like roses, orchids, peonies, and mini calla lillies. Here's some inspiration for you: http://images.google.com/images?sourceid=navclient&rlz=1T4ADBF_enUS298US298&q=purple%20and%20silver%20wedding&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi
  5. For centerpieces you could have a glass vase and fill it with silver Christmas balls and purple ribbon or spray a branch with silver paint and then wrap sections with purple ribbon and then have silver and purple decorations hanging from the branches. Find large purple or silver plates and place the opposite color candle on it. More ideas here http://www.cheap-wedding-solutions.com/cheap-wedding-centerpiece.html
