Reality sucks sometimes when it comes to estimates for wedding decor.

Don’t get discouraged though. There are lots of great ideas out there.

I would take inspiration from the pics but use bits and pieces of ideas.

-use moss, wheatgrass, ivy or ferns to provide some greenery

this one would be great with no flowers. Replace the flowers with moss. The pair of birds is lovely if you can fnd them at a great price. If not, find decorative pieces at a thrift shop and spray paint them white to replace the birds

An airy fern can be placed inside- surround with votives and small moss  or grapevine balls


Add a teacup and a candle to the glass jar of flowers


use moss or wheatgrass- use floral tubes to hold a few flowers

use moss, spanish moss, succulents, or add a few heads of hydrangea

simple garden ivy and flowering branches leaning on the cage

the cage as part of a tablescape

surround the cage with a grapevine wreath with only a few flowers or some moss

@MLDoddie:  Instead of using real flowers, you can go to the craft store and get some silk flowers for either the inside or outside. I think it’d be much cheaper.

I really love the white bird cage in the first picture you posted! Where did you find the pictures? Do you know where I can buy it?
