Wedding decor is one of the most important aspects of creating a memorable and beautiful wedding. From flowers and candles to linens and signage, wedding decor can set the tone and mood for your celebration. However, wedding decor can also be a major expense for couples planning their big day. According to NerdWallet ¹, the average cost of a Canadian wedding in 2019 was $29,059, with venue, catering and bar being the biggest expenses. WeddingWire ² reports that floral arrangements, photography and videography, DJ and live music services, and hair and makeup services are also among the major wedding costs.
So how can you save money on wedding decor in Canada without compromising on style? Here are some tips and tricks to help you cut costs and still have a stunning wedding.
Choose an off-season or weekday date
One of the easiest ways to save money on wedding decor is to choose an off-season or weekday date for your wedding. According to WeddingWire ², September is the most popular month for weddings in Canada, followed by August and October. This means that venues and vendors tend to be busier and charge higher prices during these months. By opting for a winter or spring wedding, or a weekday instead of a weekend, you can negotiate lower rates for your venue and vendors, which can free up some budget for your decor.
Use seasonal flowers or alternative arrangements
Flowers are one of the most expensive elements of wedding decor, especially if you want exotic or out-of-season blooms. To save money on flowers, consider using seasonal flowers that are locally grown and readily available. You can also opt for alternative arrangements such as dried flowers, potted plants, succulents, greenery garlands or even paper flowers. These options can add texture and color to your wedding without breaking the bank.
Rent instead of buy
Another way to save money on wedding decor is to rent instead of buy items such as linens, tableware, furniture, lighting and signage. Renting can save you money on purchasing costs as well as storage fees after the wedding. Our rentals in Canada can help you create the wedding of your dreams.
