Affordable Wedding Ideas

Affordable wedding ideas for your reception halls.  Usually, when you are on a budget, you will want to create a fabulous atmosphere, but DIY.

A video clip for some recession proof ideas:

Below are some other considerations before deciding on some banquet halls in New Jersey:

Always be aware of the weather if you are planning an outdoor wedding reception. If much of the wedding venue is held outdoors, you need to ensure the climate will not ruin the party. To avoid problems, make sure there is a covered area, tent-size for people and the party food .
Many times you can do this by making a trellis, plastic, pergolas or a gazebo.

Reception Themes

Most couples will need to decide on a theme to incorporate the whole wedding atmosphere. This themes can be modern, classic, traditional or more of a Victorian setting, this way you can decide on styles.

Color Arrangement

The wedding couple need to decide on a color theme for dress and bridal party, makeup and choose certain theme colors throughout the banquet hall. The colors chosen need to complement the decorations, bouquets, attire and any party favors, etc.

Flower Arrangments

Firstly, decide on artificial, which are usually more affordable than live, fresh flowers. Silk flowers tend to be very expensive. Fresh flowers will bring more of an entertaining appeal, although you need to consider the time of year. Out of season flowers will most certainly be expensive.
Next, make sure the arrangement of flowers complement the theme of the reception. There are many flowers to choose from, so be sure to check out books on costs and availability.

Another idea , make your hanging flower arrangements, bouquets, garlands and centerpieces in different shapes and sizes to make the atmosphere unique and appealing.

Adorn with Ribbons

Ribbons are cost-effective and simple. They can be complemented with some flowers or other accessories. Be creative and hang these from the trellis, columns, benches and chairs.

Decorate with Lights

Lights can be used as a unique decorative element. Lighting can be done in many ways, from intense ballroom spheres to a soft lovely atmosphere with lanterns. Outdoor weddings are ideal for lighting hurricane lamps and overhead lights, and candles properly placed throughout the reception will gently light and be fabulous outdoors.

Beach Theme Wedding Invitations

Banquet Halls in NJ Wedding InvitationsLet’s cover how you can make DIY Wedding Invitations.

One of the hardest choices couples face when planning a wedding is the location, there are always so many places to choose from! For those that have chosen a beach wedding you’ve made a wonderful choice, not only are beach weddings beautiful guests are sure to have a good time. If you want to incorporate this theme into your invitations you should look into beach theme wedding invitations. This way every aspect of your wedding is focused around the beach, a unified theme is always best.

Technically, you don’t need to have a wedding at the beach if you want a beach themed wedding. There are plenty of ways to decorate any area to make it seem like the beach. But the first start is the invitations, you’ll have plenty of time to decorate everything else later. The wedding invitations are the first things that your guests see, so those really need to announce your theme clearly.

You can make your invitations yourself by using a background that is blue, has seashells, or pictures of the beach. It is also nice to pick a font that has a very laid back and airy script, that always matches well with this theme. You can even have a photographer take some pictures of you and your fiancé at the beach (or at a place that could look like a beach) and use that as a front for your invitations.

If you are set on a beach wedding you have got to use beach theme wedding invitations. When going with a specific theme you’ve got to make all aspects of the wedding fit together, and that includes the invitations.

The main thing is to find the best prices when renting banquet halls for any indoor or outdoor wedding reception or corporate events.  Many rental halls in NJ will give you special prices or package the deals, but you do need to know exactly how much you can afford.

If you are budget-wise, keep your party extras to the least amount.  Banquet hall managers in NJ will usually want to know your budget, but find out the bare bones of just a rental hall before you add on any package.

Catering your event is another budget-wise decision, especially if you are on a limited budget.  Many times banquet halls in NJ offer packages, which include food prices, but limit your cuisines.
