Ideas And Budget

Sep 01, 2020

Shall we hire a wedding decorator is a perennial question that soon-to-be-weds ask. Typically, they associate hiring a decorator with the need to spend a relatively large budget. This is not necessarily the case. Granted, largescale celebrations certainly mean large investments, but many creative decorators are able to enhance a setting at reasonably affordable rates.

Some advice :

  • Keep an open mind when approaching wedding vendors.
  • Arrange for personal consultations with these décor experts to share ideas and get an inkling of what budget may be required based on your preferences and expectations.
  • Be realistic of what you can afford and what the decorator can deliver based on your allotted budget.

At the very least these are possible :

  • Hire props and go the DIY route by enlisting the help of artistic family members and friends.
  • Rely on the inclusions already provided by your venue.

In these unprecedented times that we are living in at present, consider the following :

  • Support local growers in terms of flowers.
  • Incorporate local fruits in centrepieces, which may also act as favours.
