I already posted this in Decor, but then realized it might fit better here:
What did you actually pay for the following:
Florals (ceremony and/or reception)
Draping (ceiling and otherwise)
Lounge furniture rental
Chair covers and/or specialty chairs
Did anyone do a complete venue overhaul? How did it affect the overall budget? What was your headcount?
I know money can be a sensitive subject, but we’re all friends here Besides, we’re anonymous, lol!
It would be AMAZING if you added photos with your numbers- I’m trying to get a feel for just how much decor we can afford for my little sister’s wedding. I’m the default planner (she’ll hire a day-of coordinator while I do Maid/Matron of Honor duties), but this is my first one!
Thanks so much!

We didn’t have a lot of what you are looking at but our ceremony decor and centerpieces came to $1700. That included delivery/set-up/take down. The only thing shown that isn’t included in that price was the flower petals, I bought those on my own for about $40 or so. And the chairs came with the venue.
Best of luck!
We had 7 tables with these as the centerpiece
And 8 tables with something like this (This was from the head table so there’s a bouquet in there too)

I love the flower petals down the sides of the aisle- it’s cost-conscious and less messy, huh?
I want to do an ombre effect for my sister- she’s chosen peach/gold/off-whites, but will allow a little bit of pink, lol.
Anyway, thanks for the response!

Well the flowers did end up everywhere because my aisle runner wasn’t that wide so I knocked them around with my train! They all got stuck underneath my dress and then they would fall out as I walked around though. I had a trail of petals following me wherever I went, it was pretty funny.
Here is the aisle after I demolished it haha.

I could think of worse things than flower petals trailing woman’s footsteps on her wedding day, lol! So cute!
