When deciding on wedding details for your big day, there are endless possibilities. From monogramed cocktail napkins to upgraded table linens, those little additions can start to add up. One of the biggest budget questions we receive from couples is “Which wedding details are worth the money?” We see a lot of weddings each year and we have a great appreciation for wedding details both big and small. However, when it comes to sticking to a budget, decisions must be made. To help you out, we have rounded up our top 7 wedding details that will make the most of your wedding budget.
Accent up lighting in your ballroom can make all the difference! There are a variety of colors choices from blush pink to a gorgeous amber that will compliment your wedding decor. Up lighting truly creates a unique atmosphere and tops our list of wedding details that are definitely worth the money.
While having custom table linens is certainly a stunning option, upgrading only the napkins will pack a similar punch with a much friendlier price tag. Choosing an upgraded colored napkin will add the perfect pop of color to your tables and will look gorgeous in your ballroom photos. There are also various napkin folds that can be done to bring even more attention to a pretty napkin. You can even incorporate your wedding menu card within a napkin fold. This option creates a very polished look on all your tables. Upgrading your napkins is one wedding detail you should not overlook!
Welcome Beverage Stands
Hot Cider in the fall or refreshing Raspberry Lemonade in the summer is a wonderful way to welcome your guests. Offering a beverage before your ceremony starts is a great little extra that will make your friends and family feel at home.
For many couples, an Open Bar is just too expensive and a cash bar is a much more feasible option for their reception. Adding a specialty drink station can offer the best of both worlds for a fraction of the price. A summer Sangria Bar is a great way to offer guests a couple complimentary beverages while still having a bar available if a sangria is not their drink of choice.
While most people enjoy a great slice of cake, having another dessert option is always a welcome addition to your wedding. Whether you have a Cannoli Station or an Ice Cream Bar, your guests will love the option to splurge on some great after dinner sweets.
Late Night Food Station
After hours of dancing (and drinking!) a late night food station is always a crowd pleaser. There is nothing more exciting than grabbing some Sliders and Fries or filling a box of delicious Dim Sum to refuel!
End of the Night To-Go Station
Assorted and beautifully presented homemade cookies with freshly brewed coffee or hot chocolate served in takeaway cups is the perfect parting gift for your guests. This station is perfect for those that have to make a late night drive home. The best part is this station can be used in place of favors.
