Cost Of Decorations

Recommended Posts

Having a hard time trying to figure out our budget for decorations. I don't mean tables more like decorations for the ceremony and reception area. Can someone tell me realistically what I should expect to pay? Having a hard time w/ some of these quotes! What were your costs for decor?

@JRodz@JRodz I advice that you create your pin board with some of your inspirations and forward you to your resort coordinator to have a better sense on costs.  One thing for sure. please make sure you use local flowers plus flowers that are in season to avoid higher costs.

 

 

Happy Planning

@@JRodz  Congrats on your upcoming wedding!

 

There are always tons of questions here about decor and so many brides do so many different things. DIY is quite popular with many of the ladies.  I agree with Joyce in that you need to decide what you want, for starters. Then get in touch with your coordinator and see what they quote you for the decor on their end. Then just go nuts on the internet and figure out what you can buy ahead of time and take with you. Many of the brides to be on the site, if they aren't choosing a specific decor package with their resort, will put their own ideas together and buy their tablecloths/napkins etc. before they leave. I've seen brides buy plate chargers as well and take them along. Think about how many tables you'll have, so how many centerpieces. Then think about what you actually want for centerpieces. Then I would strongly suggest you read through this site. There are soooooo many decor ideas that are just gorgeous! If you just key in decor in the search bar up top, you'll get a ton of threads well worth reading through.

 

Good luck and happy planning!

It depends on the place. If you have booked complete marriage palace, then it will cost you as per the area of decoration. So my suggestion to you is that you must book all inclusive wedding venue and there you need not worry about decoration, caterers, waiters etc, as these services will be included in the cost of hiring all inclusive wedding venue and it will be certainly economical also in comparison to hiring independent services.

I think for a medium sized wedding you should spend up to $10,000 for decorations. I know some people who spend over $50K on their wedding decoration. Tell your planner to decor your wedding with flowers. They have some gorgeous and affordable artificial flowers. Give them a try.

    • I’m sorry but I just noticed this original post was from a few years ago. 
    • Hi girl, I was in the the exact same situation as you. I’ was a second timer too,  at the time my daughter was 16 when we had our DW. He also had a daughter from a previous marriage who was 28 at the time with a 3 year old son who we’re residing with us. His daughter was in no financial shape whatsoever to pay her way to Fiji. My husband said it meant so much to him for her to be there. We argued for months about us funding her way to go with us. I felt like the evil step mother too but put my foot down. It almost got to the point that we were just not going to go but finally my fi gave in and said we would  not pay for her. Talk about stress! We went with my daughter and a few friends and got married. I could see the sadness in my husbands eyes during the ceremony.It all hit me right there. He wanted his daughter there so bad that it crushed him. In fact none of his family were there and the friends I mentioned were all my friends. I thought to myself, why did I do this to this wonderful man who is so good to me and my daughter. He rarely asked for things for himself. I felt awful. He did his best to hide it from me. It’s the biggest regret of my life girl. He never got over that his daughter was not there and it destroyed me. I wish I could go back in time and do it all over again. I allowed $3,500 that we easily could afford, ruin what I wanted to be the happiest day of his life. If you can afford it pay for it, do it. It’s not worth the pain.It was  not worth doing that to him just to prove a point. This was 17 years ago and it bothered him for the rest of his life. He passed away last October and I still cannot forgive myself. That’s my two cents - Shel  
    • Hi everyone! Newbie here. I've been trying to search for templates for passport invitations. I saw a couple on Etsy but not many options. I was wondering if anybody knew of any other sites that have printable templates for passport invitations? Thanks in advance!
