Cheap Vintage Wedding: It CAN be done!


Here is an article I found on pinterest tagged under “cheap wedding”. What great ideas! It does involve some DIY crafting. What it reminds me is that shabby-chic theme actually is perfect for a budget-friendly wedding! Other themes that can go along with shabby-chic or vintage is mad-hatter, tea party, garden party, etc. You can use what you already have in your own home as decorations! Examples: Picture frames of various sizes (empty) hung on trees, various furniture like a couch, dresser and mirror, living room tables set out to take photos with or just as decorations. You can also use tall ladders to use as a stand or to use to hold things up like lights attached to the ladder on one end and a tree on another. Chandeliers, lamps, books and old vases can also be used to decorate.  The possibilities are endless!
