No matter what type of event you are planning, budget is always something that you will have to be aware of, especially if you are working with a tight budget. At InStyle Floor Wraps, we want to help you have the event that you are dreaming of, without breaking the bank. That’s why we have put together this list of tips for decorating your event on a budget.
1. Not Everything Has to Match
Today, most people are shifting away from matching centerpieces in favour of decor pieces that are unique but still compliment each other. This can help you decorate your event on a budget because it allows you to utilize some higher end decor pieces while simultaneously balancing them out with some more budget friendly pieces. This combination will give your event space more variety and make it more unique.
2. Choose One Large Statement Piece
If you do not have a budget that will allow for you to have a bunch of small decor items, like centerpieces, you can still make an impact by choosing one large statement piece that will add a serious wow factor to your event. This is a great option, as this statement piece will double as an excellent backdrop for your guests to take pictures in front of.
3. Be Flexible
Try to be flexible when it comes to your requirements for your event because having narrow requirements can make working with a tight budget extremely difficult. Sometimes being flexible can be as simple as using things that are provided to you for free, such as standard white linens, rather than opting for a more expensive option. Utilizing free options will give you more money to play with for other parts of your event.
5. Cut Back on Catering
Food and beverages do not have to be a large expense. Instead of paying more servers to pass out hors d’oeuvres, set up small hors d’oeuvres stations for your guests to seek out. Another great way to save money on catering is to only serve open wine and beer at your event’s open bar. If you don’t think that just beer and wine will be enough, you can always add a couple signature drinks to the menu, rather than stocking a full shelf.
6. Customize Your Dance Floor
A great way to add a little flair to any event is to customize the dance floor with a floor wrap. Custom floor wraps are perfect for weddings and corporate events as they allow you to personalize the space with the couple’s initials or the company logo. Adding a floor wrap to your event’s dance floor is a great way to make a statement, and it is something that your guests will never forget.
