Your wedding lighting can make the entire ceremony look absolutely beautiful and expensive. Turn down central lights and grab lots of fairy lights in one colour. You literally cannot overdo romantic wedding lighting. Drape it around the stage and the centre-pieces and the perimeter of the wedding venue.

2. Darker colours

It has been proven that using darker colours in your wedding decoration makes your wedding seem more opulent. Colours like black and navy blue can be contrasted with metallic colours like silver, gold to create a muted colour scheme that looks like a million bucks.

3. Wedding monogram

Creating a wedding monogram is simple, easy and cheap. You can print this on the invites and the gift boxes for the guests, giving your wedding a dignified air.

4. Pay attention to the details

Little things like using ribbons on the menus, wine glasses, wedding programs, muted lighting at the tables, packaged wedding favours on the tables, and shining silverware can make the entire look of the ceremony more expensive than it really is. Helium balloons floating over the tables and even on the tables create an intimate and expensive air.

5. Have one expensive item to plan around

Whether it is a tasteful souvenir item, or a showy centerpiece, or even the wedding food, your entire wedding can revolve around one expensive item that sets the tone for the rest of the wedding planning details. Your guests will be blown away by that one thing, while the rest of the inexpensive details are made more tasteful by them.

6. Hire a good photographer

A good photographer will know how to take full advantage of the fine points of your wedding decor to create magic. The pictures can show that your wedding was a lot more expensive than it was. Great pictures are an asset you will treasure forever.

Nobody will believe you when you tell them how much it really cost!
