One of the best ways to save big money on your wedding is to opt for a place such as a garden or a beach rather than going for hotels, resorts or marriage halls.

If the place is pristine, you don’t need any extra decoration for your stage or the venue. They come dressed with natural bounties for which you don’t need to spend one dime.

If you are having a beach wedding, simply have an arch built on the sands for you to showcase yourself and your groom to the guests! For garden settings, don’t build any platforms. Simply, have a simple backdrop of buntings and ribbons. The natural blooms will add dazzles to the decor at no cost.

Who says that a simple stage decoration cannot look charming? For it to look appealing to the eyes, you can use drapes to dress up the stage backdrop or the arches. Decorating with drapes is trendy and adds a punch of style to a wedding.

If you want to save money on a stage’s decor, choose to drape the arches with burlap instead of satin or silk. Burlap is sold at reasonable rates and adds a rustic charm to a wedding’s decor.

4. Simple stage decoration with tea light candles

How about dressing up your wedding stage with tea light candles for a soft romantic appeal? Candles like tea lights are very much in vogue and are used for their charming effect as well as pricing.

Flowers are costly, especially when you use them to dress up your stage as you need them in bulk. The more the flowers, the more will be the price you pay. So, instead of going for huge and elaborate floral arrangements on the stage, go for tea light candles.

You can hang tea light candles in lanterns from the roof of the stage, or, in mason jars. Create a string of tea light candle jars at the backdrop for a stunning effect.

5. Simple stage decoration ideas with a floral backdrop

Create a backdrop mesh with local flowers such as Marigold or Gainda Phool. It will look stunning and will be way less expensive than exotic blossoms.

Hang paper flowers on a wooden frame, or, else, go for dreamcatcher hoops with artificial flowers hanging from them. Floral chandeliers can be hung from the ceiling of the stage.
