Brides in 2014 might be the luckiest ones yet, at least in terms of budget. The latest wedding trends are leaning toward a back-to-nature decor, filled with rustic lighting, wedding tent rentals instead of halls, and simple wedding arches decorated with leafy greens and minimal flowers. This shift could cut the average $28,000 wedding in half, at least.
Outdoor or partially al fresco weddings are supposed to dominate this year’s peak wedding season from May to September. This allows couples to do some of their own planning and decorating, instead of having to spend extra cash on expensive wedding decorations rentals, such as linens, tables, and chairs in a typical reception hall. There are literally hundreds of unique centerpiece and decoration ideas on Pinterest that couples have been snatching up in the last few months for their wedding.
There are a number of simple linens that mirror the latest wedding themes, without busting the bride-to-be and groom-to-be’s budget. Many people are looking for table linen rentals that have texture, more than glitz. The fabric can be woven with floral prints and also embellished with a touch of glamour using small crystals, but is relatively toned down compared to years past. Other couples are opting for the crinkled linen look, as well as an overlay design. This means that rather than covering tables and chairs with one piece of fabric, layers of smaller units of fabric are laid out, creating multiple layers, which adds texture and the appearance of grandeur.
Other wedding decorations rentals, such as chairs, have taken a turn toward classic wood. Whether the chairs are a simple brown wood color, or stained with a white overcoat, they line reception tables with elegance. This is particularly true for wedding receptions held in outdoor tents, where the large white tents, the outdoor lights, and white chairs expertly contrast the green grass, and colorful, basic floral arrangements. Regardless of the color of the linens, wooden chairs accent an outdoor wedding well.
By keeping your wedding simple and organic, and researching the latest outdoor wedding trends, you will undoubtedly save yourself thousands of dollars on wedding preparations. You can then enjoy the most memorable day of your life knowing that it was exactly what you wanted it to be, without worrying about severely denting your savings. Continue.
