Being a Yard Sale Bride

Now that it is finally yard sale season, (yeah!!), it is a great time to look for décor.  Think outside of the box and look for things that are not normal “wedding decorations.”  They can even be repurposed as décor in your new home.

Elegant and Affordable Wedding Decor

I am always on the lookout for great deals and things to offer brides to make their planning easier on them and on their budget.  I was really excited with my latest find at the Salvation Army Thrift Store.  26 crystal bud vases.   Add flowers in your wedding colors, some candles and you have beautiful and elegant look for your reception.  Come on in to the design center and see about renting décor for your wedding!

All about Fall : Wedding Decorations

Even though it is winding down a little here in Arcade, Fall has always been one of my favorite seasons and Fall wedding décor is not an exception.  There are so many color and accessory options you can choose from.

If you don’t have a lot in your budget for décor, concentrate on places like the head table or sweetheart table.  Get a decorative tablecloth and chargers to bring in the theme.

Add some decorative table numbers even if you are not using escort cards.  Use seasonal object such as gourds, wheat and leaf garlands.  You can even reuse the chargers in your home later on for a holiday dinner party.

Ornaments: The unexpected wedding centerpiece

When you are a Thrift Store and Yard Sale bride you sometimes have to think outside the box.  You are looking to get the most impact or “bang for your buck.”  When shopping, look for things that you may not expect to be in a wedding centerpiece, but give it that added touch.  Ornaments are one of the best things to use as your main décor or as an accent piece.  I really like them because they come in so many different shapes, colors and sizes.  And, if you plan ahead you can shop for them at after holiday sales and get some great deals.

I this arrangement I  decided to use them to accent the colors I was already using.  They added some glitter complimented the main colors I was using.

Another option is using them as the main focus of your centerpieces.  This adds sparkle by adding your own wedding colors you make it your own. ffcfe8944c1e44d2311bd1531f9183b2

They can also be used in unexpected ways.  You expect them on a Christmas tree but not necessarily on this kind of tree.

Get creative and make it about you and the kind of look you want for your own wedding.

Fall Wedding Decorations

Fall is one of my favorite times of year to decorate.  One of the best things about this time of year is that you can incorporate things like apples, pinecones, gourds, sticks and mums that are already in season.  They look great and for the most part, are kind to your budget.
