From ‘gold branch centerpieces’ to ’tissue pom poms’ and ‘bark heart lanterns’ to ‘wedding dress centerpieces’ check out these super chic DIY wedding decorations that will save you a tonne of cash.
1. Bohemian Wedding Arch
This bohemian wedding arch actually costs about $300 and is quite an easy project considering how beautiful it looks. Once you get your posts in place (try to make sure theyre at least six and a half feet high) you can start attaching your fabric but it needs to be done with an element of artistic judgement, putting complimentary colors next to each other to set your palettes and tones. You can then add all your pom poms, lace trimmings, balloons etc.

2. Bark Heart Lanterns
Bark lanterns are a stunningly romantic decoration that will offer a warm ambience for any wedding décor, especially for outdoor settings.
Working with natural materials is a great way to get in touch with nature and it’s also a really cheap way to create these beautiful decorations. The best bark to use is from a Sycamore tree then wrap it round a jar and use twine to hold it in place. Then light the candle and after a few hours it will begin to shape itself around the jar.

3. Flower Backdrop
Floral backdrops are great for wedding reception area and for family photographs. To create this masterpiece you’d want to start by trimming the flowers heads then tie a knot on one end of your fishing line. Then thread the line and sew the flower – depending on which way you want to hang them – upside down or right side up. Leave a gap and then tie another knot and add your next flower. It’s a bit time consuming at first but once you get your rhythm you’ll be done in no time.
