Spring Wedding Ideas on a Budget!

Getting Hitched? There are plenty of ways to save. Check out these spring wedding ideas on a budget.

Spring Wedding Ideas on a Budget

When planning a spring wedding, it’s easy to get carried away. It’s important to know when to splurge and when to save. If you are looking for inexpensive ways to celebrate your wedding, check out these spring wedding ideas on a budget.

Budget-friendly Wedding Ideas:

Lighting: For lighting, consider candles and christmas lights. Both are inexpensive ways to decorate your reception and will still add a touch of glam to your event. Decorating with candles and lanterns can also give the room that “wow” factor while minimizing the number of floral arrangements.

Favors: If you are having a small celebration and looking for ways to save, consider centerpieces in small tin pails that can also be used as wedding favors for each guest at the table. 

Have the ceremony and the reception at the same location: This will be an inexpensive way to celebrate because you will save money on transporting you and your guests and you can also save money on decorations.

If you are searching for the perfect NJ venue for your spring wedding, we offer over 20,000 sq. ft. of breathtaking ballroom space and outdoor space. You’ll love our exquisite outdoor gardens for your ceremony and our limitless ballroom space is ideal for any reception. Come plan a tour today and let our wedding concierge help you plan the wedding of your dreams.
