Long gone are the thoughts that weddings have to cost an arm and a leg! Instead, try these tips for a frugal fall wedding that won’t break the bank.

Use Leaves As Colorful Centerpieces

With the leaves changing and dropping during autumn, why not gather them up, and use them as the centerpieces on your table? With red, yellow, and orange being bright and vibrant colors, it’s an easy way to get some beautiful decorations that won’t cost you a cent.

Incorporate Pumpkins Any Yay You Can

Fall screams “pumpkins”, and what better way is there to get some fun use out of pumpkins, than by having them at your wedding?! You can paint them, and use them as fun decorations throughout. The best part? They literally cost only a few dollars, and can be a great way to save some of the wedding money!

Skip the Dessert Bar and Offer a Hot Chocolate Bar, Instead

 Nobody can say no to a piping hot cup of sweet and yummy hot chocolate! Think of how much money, time, and clean up work you could save if this was served at your wedding, instead of a variety desserts… All you need is hot water (or milk), the powder for the hot chocolate, and some marshmallows…and just like that, your wedding hot chocolate bar is born!

Don’t Pay for Seating When You Can Use Hay Bales!

Yes, you read that right. Why spend money on seats when you can use hay bales for your guests to sit on? Square hay bales work perfectly as a place to sit. To make them look a bit more elegant, cover the hay bales with a white cloth. Not only will that help to fancy them up, but it won’t be as pokey for your guests to sit on, either. Instead of worrying about breaking down and sitting up tons of chairs, hay bales will do the trick just as easy. Plus, it’s fun and unique, as well!

Paint Old Mason Jars and Spruce Them Up!

 Who knew that there were so many useful ways to use mason jars? From canning to decorating, mason jars can truly be used for a wide variety of items. Paint them the colors of your wedding, or place tea lights inside of them for instant lighting. Save them as you go along so that way you’ll have a large collection ready to go when it’s time for your big day!

Make Your Own Bouquet From Beautiful Fall Leaves and Flowers

If you don’t have hundreds of dollars to spend on a bouquet, don’t worry! You aren’t alone. Why spend a big chunk of your wedding budget on flowers that aren’t going to last that long? Instead, make your own from leaves and flowers that you can find around your home. It’s super fun and the perfect way to save a few extra bucks on your big day, while personalizing your bouquet to fit your story, as a couple. Did your fiancé ever give you a bouquet of tiger lilies while dating? Incorporate them into your wedding bouquet, while saving money, and sharing a sweet memory.

Serve Finger Foods Instead Of An Entire Meal

Think how much money you could save if you only serve finger foods, versus a whole meal… Just make certain to let your guests know about it ahead of time, so they can eat more before, or plan for something after if they need to.

Choose a Free Outdoor Park For Your Service

Did you know that a lot of parks offer wedding services for little to no money? Having a wedding outdoors, with beautiful fall colors, would make the most beautiful wedding scenery, ever.

Let Your Wedding Party Dress Themselves

Who started the tradition that everyone in the wedding party had to wear matching, expensive outfits, and dresses? With the main focus being on the bride, why not let your wedding party decide what they want to wear? Give them a color option and let them dress themselves!

Have An Outdoor Reception Under the Stars

Isn’t fall weather just the best? Instead of spending a ton of money on an expensive wedding venue, why not set up speakers and simple decorations outdoors? You’ll find that the less you plan and spend, the more relaxed you will be, and the more fun you’ll have!
