Drape White lights

Remember those strings of pearly white lights that are used to drape around Christmas trees. Well these lights look great when draped around tables, plants, home décor items, the stage and almost everywhere. White lights automatically impart a festive glow to the ambiance. In case you do not want to use/ do not like white lights, you can use paper Chinese lanterns too.

Invest in Ribbon

Ribbons are prettier and look way more elegant than tacky seat covers (the inexpensive variety) which are mass rented for weddings. Invest in rolls of wide ribbons (red and gold would be a good choice) and tie them on the backs of all chairs in the house to give them an instant facelift. Make pretty loopy bows and tie them on flower vases and potted plants too to impart a festive feel.

Install a Water Feature

The sound of gushing water and light sprays is in itself so refreshing that it will quickly become the cynosure of your home. If you cannot afford a bigger one for your garden or lawn, buy a small one that can sit prettily on your table top. This is sure to take up your wedding décor a few notches higher.

Use colourful Feathers

Feathers are the latest trend in home wedding décor. They are cute, colorful, can be purchased easily and are inexpensive to boot. Buy feathers in bulk from a craft store and make up a centerpiece with feathers and dried flowers for your home. You can also make large wreaths with feathers and hand them in each room to give a festive feel to your home.

 

Decorate with Fabric

Yards of fabric can be had for cheap at sale time and you should buy in bulk from your favorite fabric store. Sheer fabrics hung from fans and the ceiling, will create a romantic atmosphere while red and gold brocade on the tables and beds will add a touch of bling to your home. The important thing is to remember to buy fabric in coordinated colors according to your wedding theme.

Say it with flowers

While marigold, tube roses and roses are the usual wedding flower choices, you can be a little unconventional and use orchids, forget me not, carnations and even jasmine as décor ideas. Flowers can be used to decorate every corner of your home to give it a wedding-y feel.
