From the aisle to the altar, the ceremony décor should reflect the spirituality of your union. Can you incorporate your ceremony venue to capture this spirit, and also economize your budget? Whether it’s a giant shade tree or the ocean as a backdrop, a natural environment is a captivating option. I also recommend using candles in the place of costly fresh flowers and creating an unusual seating arrangement (such as a cross configuration). If you can work with your surroundings for the ceremony, you can shift more of your wedding budget to the reception.
