Wedding decorations and catering done on a budget



Wedding decorations are all about giving your guests a visual treat and creating the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos. But while you decide to put on those drapes or buy that centrepiece, you will need to be considerate of your pocket. On the other hand, deciding on the food menu or creating your own can be perplexing because there is such a wide variety to choose from.

Know your options

Knowing your options give you a broader perspective on what you want and how much you want to spend. Before browsing through various wedding supplies in Sydney, decide on the theme – whether it’s classic, vivid or wild – and then choose your supplies that fit your taste and budget. Do not spend too much on centrepieces. Instead, go for smaller, yet essential décor items to create an impactful bigger picture.

As far as catering is concerned, know your options first and then choose by categories: starter, main course and desserts – one category at a time. It is understandable that you do not know every guest personally and their taste in food. Therefore, ensure adequate variety in the menu so that there is something for everyone.

Create a mix of shapes and colours

Hiring wedding furniture is another expense that can burn a hole in your pocket. The trick is to get affordable furniture covered in quality linens so that you do not need to spend a fortune to make everything look great. You can also create a geometrical interplay by placing round and square tables next to each other and use different linens for each type. For linens, use subtle colours unless you want to dazzle your guests.

Find modern and hip caterers

We have been attending weddings since when we were kids. We remember eating the same food and desserts for years – thanks to traditional caterers who are continuing the legacy. But don’t you feel like changing things up a bit? This is your wedding. It shouldn’t be your caterer to decide what will be served to your guests. Your menu need not to include the most common wedding snacks and the main course that has been running since time immemorial. Your food menu need not to be wedding-specific. Go for delicacies and drinks that you want to be served on your big day or something your guests may love to eat. Isn’t that how you make a wedding memorable?


Good food and great music are incomplete without proper lighting. Lighting is as common and essential as flowers, creating the perfect mood for guests and hosts alike. Apart from the basic string-lights that run across the venue, you can use decorative fixtures to highlight areas where you want to direct attention.

Keep a check on alcohol flow

Serving alcohol at your wedding can be expensive but setting up a wedding bar with every liquor on offer can simply blow out the budget. The easiest way to save money here is to provide your own alcohol. However, this needs to be communicated to the caterer and thought-through to avoid last-minute inconveniences.

Organising a wedding requires both planning and money. Even if you want to hire someone to handle every arrangement for you, choose an experienced wedding planner who knows how to cut back on expenses without cutting corners.
