#1. Tie black or red ribbon or tulle on chairs. See if your reception venue has black or red cloth napkins or purchase paper cocktail napkins. Set tables up with ivory votive candles or tealights. Purchase red or black branches to display in vases on tables. All very budget friendly options…surely less expensive than flowers!
#2. Have 10 tables? Purchase 10 low-priced red or black place mats to place in the center of each table. Decorate with red or ivory votive candles. Place favors in the middle of each table, perhaps in boxes wrapped with ribbon in your wedding colors!
#3. Two things. Rose petals and candlelight. Soooo romantic!
#4. Think outside the box.
#5. Get the look for less! Since it’s a fall wedding, why not spray paint pine cones in either black or red? Either go pine cone picking yourselves, or pickup a bundle at your local craft store!
#6. Keep it simple. Put a few red flowers in the middle, and wrap favors in black tulle bags, which you can find at any craft store!
