Photos and hashtags for weddings

A friend who has a hobby of photography can take, with a good camera, a basic package of photographs. This can surely be your wedding gift for the couple.

We recommend creating a virtual label and placing a blackboard at the entrance with it. Choosing your wedding hashtags is a good idea. The hashtag for your wedding will make many guests share the photos taken during the event.

Capturing the emotions and the most important moments is essential on this special day . A hashtag is the way to group the photos and videos that your guests took to put together a great album of images and videos to be shared among all.

This virtual label will help you make the wedding an interactive experience. Technology contributes to unite everyone in the history of your wedding from social networks.

11. Wedding souvenirs: Get creative with your wedding favors

This can be made by the bride and groom themselves, as wedding souvenirs with a chic and beautiful vibe like any other purchased souvenir.

An easy souvenir to make is to put on the table near the desserts, a napkin decorated with sprigs of lavender and a card with the name of the bride and groom and a text thanking the guests for coming.

12. Best Dance Music: Disc Jockey

The best dance music makes the party. There is always a musical talent in every family. Another opportunity to save is to ask them to play music or do an instrumental show.

Before the date, meet with the music manager to establish what kind of music they prefer. It is always cheaper to hire a DJ than a live band. With music many memories and feelings are transmitted. For example, listening to songs from the 80’s today transmits you to that time. A  mixture of retro music is fashionable today among young people.

If the wedding is outside the high season, a better price and more services such as lighting and mirror balloons for the dance floor can be negotiated.

13. How can I get more money for the wedding?

Request collaboration  between godparents, family and closest friends. Give me cash or your help for the party.

Instead of waiting for gifts, you can organize collaborations. Either for some decorative objects or music. The closest friends will be able to collaborate and feel that they are part of that day.

14. Decoration ideas for an inexpensive, simple but delicate wedding

If the celebration takes place in a garden, use the plants that are in the place. Highlight the plants that attract the most attention with lights. We recommend assembling the flower arrangements using the flowers of the season, in this way we will lower costs.

Put together a decoration according to the plants and flowers present. Create lots of texture and fresh colors that bring joy and festivity.

For the event entrance, paint recycled tin cans with gold. Put candles inside to give a warm light if the event is at night.

It is suggested to always use light colors together with roses, petunias and salvias.

Intended spouses can ask guests to bring a printed photograph with them. Each sticks on an album or billboard at the entrance and reserves a place to write a dedication by hand.

This cute detail with photos of the bride and groom. Fill with images from babies to adults. Guests can come closer, remember and watch.

15. Ideas to celebrate a Wedding without a party: Bridal table with crockery and thematic path

On the table, place candles and candelabra, of different heights, together with the flowers, to create the atmosphere of celebration.

Recycled glass jars can be tied with copper wires and white beads.

The bottles are decorated with foliage and filled with coarse salt or sand to mark the way.

If the wedding is rustic, adding burlap bows to the chairs can give them that distinctive touch for the occasion.

Inexpensive Wedding Venues

If we request a club room, a nearby park or even the beach we could save money. Another option is to ask for  the fifth of a friend and the garden of the house of in-laws or relatives.

The decoration will be the spirit of the celebration and will make a difference. It can be boho, elegant or classic themed.
