Planning a wedding can be a daunting task. Picking flowers, a band, a dress, a cake… it all takes time and, sometimes, a lot of money. But the truth is, while wedding planning can certainly use up quite a bit of the clock, it doesn’t have to eat up your wallet as well. Here are a few tips on how to decorate your Bucks County, PA, wedding venue for free using the things you have in your own home. (Your parents’ home counts too.) Aside from being super affordable, using things you already own can allow you to spend the big money where it counts – the venue and food!

Raid your bookshelves

Books and small objects – such as music boxes, picture frames, ceramic figurines – can be an excellent accent to sprinkle throughout your reception. Use themed books to stack in the center of tables, tie old keys to place cards, spread little knick-knacks around the dessert table. Personal treasures such as these can add interest and one-of-a-kind decor that you won’t find anywhere else.

A parting gift for guests

Wedding reception favors don’t have to cost you big bucks when you recycle materials. Wash out and peel the labels off of small honey, jam, and sauce jars to create adorable mix-and-match sets that are ready to be filled with anything that is most memorable to you. The bottle is the limit when thinking of what to put inside, from a family jam recipe to Grandma’s famous limoncello to starter seeds of your favorite flowers. Decorate the containers with ribbons and custom tags for added charm and personalization. This offers a classy yet memorable piece of your wedding for guests to enjoy after the celebration is over.

Search the family garage

While this might not be the case in every family, often times there is one special car or vehicle that has been passed down through the generations and filled with memories. Place the car at the edge of your Bucks County, PA, wedding venue and you will have one of the most unique photo booth backdrops around! Make sure to incorporate it in your send off as well.

No matter how you choose to decorate your Bucks County, PA, wedding venue, your guests will appreciate the thought and time you’ve put in. After all, weddings are wonderful!
