Finding the right wedding venue can be stressful and exhausting. There are so many to choose from, and even then you have to worry about whether they’ll be available on the day that you want to get married. Organizing a wedding at home is a great way to save some money and make sure that everything goes exactly as you desire. This means that you can get creative with decorations too, because you’re the one that knows your home the best.
Twine pendant lanterns
Twine chandeliers are not only gorgeous decoration, but they are incredibly easy to make and hand around. All you need are some balloons, glue, and some twine, and you can make these lanterns. They will be perfect for your wedding, as you can hand them around your yard or take them inside if you want. Just remember to put some Vaseline on your balloons before you put twine on them, otherwise they might get stuck. If you’re looking for a way to make the lanterns even more stylish, once they’re dry, you can dip them first in glue and then sprinkle glitter all over them.
If you have a staircase at home, you can use them to make a wonderful spot of your big day. Take advantage of your staircase, and make an effort to turn them into something truly noticeable. If you want to keep things simple, you can line up lanterns on them so they add soft, romantic light; or if you like to make it more dramatic, you can wrap them with dramatic floral garlands.
Tin can lanterns
There is nothing more romantic than candle light, but you can make it even more magical by using interesting candle holders. Plain old tin cans can be turned into breathtakingly beautiful candle holders with a nail and a hammer. Create unique patterns on every can and when you put a candle inside, it will create wonderful shapes on the wall.
While your front door will probably be open most of the time so that your guests can walk in freely, it’s important to decorate them accordingly. Get a lovely wreath and hang it so that everyone knows something important is going on. Use wreaths with white, satin ribbons and flowers dipped in glitter, and hang it proudly.
Lace candle holders
You’ve probably seen those elegant candle holders before, but we bet you had no idea just how easy they are to make! All you need to do is get your hands on some doilies and several balloons, dip the doilies in glue and wrap them around the balloons. Simply hand them and let them dry overnight, and tomorrow pop the balloons to find your perfect lace candle holders which you can use to decorate your home and your garden.
Burlap banners are lovely because you can hang them pretty much anywhere. You can make one that says ‘welcome’ and hand it above your front door or even your gate so that your guests truly feel welcome. You can also make the one that says Mr. & Mrs. and hand it on your wedding table. Another popular banner is the one that says ‘Just Married’ and this will look great on your car or on your chairs.
Altar is incredibly important; after all, it’s there that you and your beloved will get married. The altar will be seen in photos, and you will remember if forever. You can make a wonderful altar right there in your back yard, and all you need is a bit of creativity. Get some of the gorgeous custom made curtains from Perth and draw them back so that it looks like an opening night at the theatre. You can also add flowers, candles, fairy lights, balloons, or twigs at the altar and make it look magical.
Home weddings are great when venues aren’t available or when you have a limited budget. They also allow you to feel completely comfortable because you’ll get married in the surrounding you know best. There will be memories in every corner of every room, and with just a bit of work you’ll be able to make the place look exactly like you desire. Find your inspiration and get creative, and your guests will be impressed with the way you decorated your home.
