10 ways to create a romantic wedding on a budget!

Photography by Isabel Lawrence Photography via Get Married

1. Introducing your big day.

Beautiful sweeping hearts, your own favorite verse or elegant flowers are all great ideas for romantic wedding invitations. Decide what romance means to the two of you, and let that be the introduction to your special day.


2. Creating a theme.

Continue your design choice — hearts, flowers, verse ­— throughout your wedding by featuring it on your ceremony programs, napkins, wedding favors and more.


3. Getting sentimental.

Write your own vows to recite to each other on your wedding day. If you think this sounds cheesy or cliché, wait until everyone at your wedding — including yourselves — are wiping the tears from their eyes.
4. Going classic.

Sprinkle red rose petals along the church aisle or on top of reception tables. Not only are rose petals a classic, romantic touch, they add beautiful color to your wedding décor.


5. The perfect lighting.

Decorate the church or reception with soft candlelight by placing votives
and other candles of various sizes throughout the church or reception.
Place the candles in clear votive holders and vases to create simply elegant
yet inexpensive wedding decorations.


6. A lot of heart!

Add heartfelt décor to the ceremony, such as heart-shaped unity candle
or an entwined hearts aisle runner.


7. A fresh perspective.

Float fresh flowers in glass votive holders or vases for a gorgeous addition to your décor that’s classic, beautiful and oh-so-romantic. They look wonderful placed throughout an intimate church setting or as reception table centerpieces. (Tip: Choose in-season flowers for the best price or ask your florist if they’ll have leftover flowers after creating bouquets and arrangements.)


8. Being unique.

Create your own signature drink to be served at the reception, and give it a name that means something special to the two of you.


9. Something old…

Incorporate the delicate look of lace into your wedding. Lace, when done right, is romantic and very stylish. Play around with lace as a part of your reception table decorations or as accents to bouquets. Lace is especially cute on a flower girl — a lace-accented flower basket will look beautiful in her little hands!


10. Something new…

Revel in every wedding toast made at your wedding with special toasting flutes personalized for the two of you and your wedding day.

Whether you choose the heart, flower, cross or butterfly, guests are going to adore these cookie cutter favors featuring the verse, “Truly cut out for each other,” your names, wedding date and a recipe for some tasty sugar cookies.


7. Oh, So Cute!

Buy a few boxes of plastic spoons, place a single chocolate kiss on top of each spoon and wrap with netting circles. Then tie a favor tag printed with “A Spoonful of Kisses from the Mr. and Mrs.” around the spoon. Sure to get an “Ahhh…” from your guests.


6. Freshen Up

Guests will smile at this clever favor. Our tic tac favor stickers are printed with “Mint to be,” your names and wedding date. Now that’s a fresh idea for inexpensive wedding favors!


5. Chew On This

“Sticking together from this day forward” is printed on gum favor wrappers for inexpensive wedding favors that are both tasty and fun!


4. A Wedding Favor Life Saver

Purchase rolls of candy and take the outer wrapping off. Replace with our “Lovesavers” wrappers personalized with your names and wedding date.


3. Heartfelt Favors

Simple and elegant. Heart-shaped favor boxes are personalized with your names and wedding date, and can be filled with your choice of candy, nuts, mints, etc.


2. Favors with a Kick!

Our Tobasco® Favor Kits come with a mini bottle of Tobasco sauce along with a favor card printed with your names, wedding date and the verse, “Friends are the spice of life!”


1. Love Is in the Air

Instead of tossing rice after the wedding ceremony, surround the couple with bubbles! Give each guest a bottle of bubbles with a favor tag that says, “Love is in the Air.”
