Planning an Autumn Wedding on a Budget

If you’re planning a fall wedding and looking for the best ways to save money, you’ve come to the right place. At the Wilshire Grand Hotel, we understand how essential it is for our brides and grooms to stay on budget while planning the wedding of their dreams. With help from sites such as Celebrations.com and TheKnot.com, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite ways to save money on your wedding. We hope you’ll enjoy our wedding planning guide for “Planning an Autumn Wedding on a Budget!”

Easy Wheat Grass Centerpieces: We all know that centerpieces can get expensive. When planning an autumn wedding on a budget, there is a way to create that “wow factor” without spending a lot of money. According to Celebrations.com, adding wheat grass to your décor is a nice way to bring a natural element to your event. Click here to learn more about the DIY fall centerpiece.

Dried Leaf Escort Cards: Featured on Once Wed, dried leaves are a beautiful, simple and inexpensive way to create escort cards for your wedding. Celebrations.com suggests that you write each guest and their table number on a leaf with a calligraphy pen to beautifully display your cards for your guests.

Caramel Apples for Favors: TheKnot.com featured caramel apples as one of their 10 Fall Wedding Favor Ideas. If you have the time, you can make and package them yourself and tie them with a ribbon to match your fall wedding colors.

Sunflower Seeds for Favors: Another wedding favor idea from TheKnot.com is sunflower seeds. Display the packets individually or along fresh sunflowers in a vase. Sunflower seeds are ideal for a rustic fall wedding.
