It’s easy and you can choose whatever fabric you’d like! You can even do a no sew version using this pattern: http://www.thesweetestoccasion.com/2013/05/how-to-make-napkins/.
Opt for Chargers
Colored chargers under your plates can make all the difference. Plus, you can get these for as little as $1 a piece!
If you really want the couture invitations, order those. Then, find coordinating designs that you can print yourself for the save the date cards, reception cards, etc. This is a great way to compromise so you’re getting the elegant invitations you want but still saving money.
Think Outside the Box
Most couture weddings attempt to go in a direction different from all other weddings. Use this as your inspiration. Rather than hiring a band or a DJ, hire a single vocalist or a group of violinists. If you have a friend or acquaintance with a musical gift, you can probably secure the entertainment for a great price.
These are just a few ways that you can have a couture-style wedding without the price! With a little creative thinking, you’re sure to come up with other fantastic ways to do this.
