The key word for a budget wedding is prioritize. Decide what to splurge on — I suggest a great photographer and delicious food — and cut back on everything else. So when it comes to decorating your (probably already amazing) venue, opt for DIY projects that are easy to pull off.
You don't need a ton of cash to decorate your bash with whimsy. Each of these tutorials can be tackled in a weekend with supplies from your local craft store (plus a few special appearances from wax paper, receipt paper and light bulbs).
