- Wedding: July 2015
I am interested in your opinion on what are the most important decor elements to you, or even what do you think is the best “bang for your buck,” decor-wise?
My fiancé and I came up with an initial budget of approx. $25,000 for our wedding in Ontario. We’ve booked all the ‘major’ vendors (venue / ceremony, officiant, photographer, and DJ). Now we’re looking at flowers, decor, stationary, etc.
I’m planning on doing all the stationary and some decor myself. But the way our venue works is we may not get the reception room until very late in the day (we are not guaranteed the room until 3PM – aka the time we’re getting married) so we will need to hire a company to set up the decor that we will not have time to set up, as we will be unavailable to do it ourselves.
We met with a decor company over the weekend, and we’re getting the official quote by tomorrow. However, just thinking about some of the prices mentioned makes me think the quote will be $7,000+. We will also be meeting with a couple more decor places over the upcoming weeks to compare products and prices.
Here’s is my wishlist
Backdrop with lights; Charger plates – probably glass with gold trim (110); Gold chiavari chairs (110); Linen Overlays with champagne glitter/lace pattern (approx 10); Tall vases for centerpieces + white, pink, and purple flowers (approx 10); Large floral arrangement for ceremony – to be reused for Head Table (approx 2); 6 bouquets (5 bridesmaids and bride)l 6 boutenneirs (5 groomsmen and groom)
Let me know what your lists are / what you are thinking of cutting or already cut, and what you think is/was worth the money!
I’m sure the chairs will be first to go, but I just love the look! Especially with my gold/champagne/pink/purple colour scheme.
For reference, here’s a picture my photographer took of another wedding in the same room of the same venue where we are getting married.
