Money Saving Tips on Decor


You want your wedding and reception to look nice but you can't afford to spend $300 for each of the 12 floral centerpieces that you want...so what do you do???

First, relax! Guests will not notice if your centerpieces cost $30 or $300. All eyes will be on you and your honey the entire time! Guests attend your wedding to celebrate your big day with you, not to pick apart your day.

*If you have those people on your guest list-the nitpickers, remove them now!!. You want your day to be full of good vibes, love, and happiness!*


Read below for some quick tips on how to save money on your décor!

Do one thing in abundance and it will make a big impact. Gather tons of branches – even from your backyard – and place them in large vases.

Save money on buying flowers wholesale and then pay a florist to do simple arrangements.

Study up on flowers. Once you know what’s in season, make your selections from those and see how much further your floral budget goes.

Getting married around a holiday?  Flowers are generally 15% to 30% more expensive on Easter, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and in prom season.

Stay simple. Much of the florist’s fee is labor–the more elaborate, the more expensive. Roses, tulips, or even orchids submerged in water are very elegant.

not a fan of flowers? Candles are inexpensive but in abundance they create a romantic ambiance.

Create your own artwork, monogram or motif on your computer. Use it throughout your wedding – on menus, programs, etc – for a chic look.

Ashton Loves Kenyetta

"My heart stops when you look at me."

4. Start the wedding earlier in the day: an early wedding means less food...unless you and your future spouse are foodies!
5. Limit the alcoholic offerings to wine, beer, and a signature cocktail ...or skip the alcohol altogether!
6. Move the wedding from Saturday to Sunday: or possibly to a weekday. Venues are less expensive during the week.

8. Hire a DJ instead of a band. 
9. Opt for standard sized invitations: irregular shaped invitations cost more to ship.
10. Skip favors: unless they are spectacular, unusual, and usable. Otherwise, the…

Class of 2018!

Congratulations to the class of 2018! I had the honor of setting up a graduation dinner for my god-daughter, Madisen, who also happens to be one of the valedictorians of her class.   Graduation day brings a roller coaster of emotions for the graduates and their families. It’s a time of celebration, achievement, anxiety, and fear of the unknown.
