I’m doing my own decorations but only because ive reeeeeeally enjoyed it. If I weren’t crafty or patient, I would hire someone. No idea how much it’ll cost to hire though. Total cost of our crafts & decorations is $1000 and includes: all stationery (menu cards, invites, place cards etc) $150, cake stands $50, cake servers $30, cake topper $50, varierty of cakes $150, favours $150, personalised napkins $42, seating chart $40, cards box $5, confetti bubbles & holders $20, guest book & pen holder $30, Pom Pom garlands $30, lots of tealight candles & holders $60, disposable wedding cameras $32, 14 small vases $28, photo frames $50, lantern tealight holders $40, flowers $200 – and lots of man hours. Luckily I’ve done a lot of my DIY in down time at work.


Just to give u an idea if u do decide to get quotes for decorators…

Our decorator was going to charge us about $2000.00 ..that was just an estimate, it could’ve been more. So we decided just to decorate ourselves. I find myself more excited to decorate the venue with my bridesmaids than having someone decorate for me. It’s going to save us alot of money too, which makes my soon to be husband happy.

I did decorations for chairs only….all other decorations were included in the venue.
