Candles. This is probably the easiest way to give your overall wedding reception that elegant vibe. Candles can be purchased anywhere and everywhere, but for the purpose of this post, you will find candles that are budget-friendly at any dollar store, or Walmart.

Flowers & Mason Jars. Not only will this be super easy to put together and inexpensive, they look super chic as well. You can find jars at the dollar store, and you can pick up a couple of flower bouquets from any grocery store, and you’re done! You can also use fake flowers, which can be found at any dollar store or Michael’s.

Flowers & Vases. You can’t get any simpler and inexpensive than this right here. You can go a step further and paint the vases to match your wedding theme. You can again find vases at the dollar store, flowers from the grocery store, and you may want to splurge a littleΒ on good paint. After the wedding, you can decorate your house with these vases or give them away.

Fruit & Vases or Jars. This is such a great way to utilize nature’s candy. You can fill up a vase or jar with lemons, limes, oranges, or even red/green apples depending on your theme. Super easy and super cute.

Candy or Chocolate. How about giving your guests something to snack on in between meals and mingling? You can easily buy candy or chocolate in bulk from places like Costco or Sam’s Club. Then purchase vases or jars from your local dollar store and you’re done. Leave little boxes or bags on each table for each guest to take some home too (can be purchased for cheap at dollar stores or Walmart). It can accompany a floral arrangement orΒ alone.

Mini Cakes Per Table.Β With this you let your guests decide when dessert time is. This can be a little pricey, but if you know someone who can bake a decent cake, you’re covered. Also check your local grocery store bakeries, they’re usually not too bad in terms of pricing. This way all you need is another mini cake for you and your spouse to cut.

The options are truly endless. You don’t have to splurge to make something beautiful for your guests. All you need is a little creativity!
