  2. Ribbon: Yup, it’s that simple. Colored ribbon is often used as a backdrop for outdoor weddings, giving the green surroundings a pop of color. Another idea is to tie the ribbon on the back of the chairs during the ceremony. This allows the chairs to also be incorporated in the wedding’s color scheme and gives it a fun, colorful look. At fabric stores, ribbon runs fairly inexpensive, giving the bride and groom the ability to save more money on a backdrop or fancy chairs, without sacrificing the designer look!                                                                                        41b6712de34c66a916ef77e09fb145d8 bab4fe9116cce435845662b220a5f704 583b49a69c6d63ceae2325c199642ed9
  3. Vintage Suitcases: Still have grandpa’s old suitcase from the 1930’s? Obsessed with a vintage wedding flare? Well, vintage suitcases are ever present in the wedding décor phase.

  5. Burlap: To really nail the modern ‘rustic’ wedding look, burlap is an inexpensive, easy to find fabric that will add texture and warmth to the reception.

The hard texture gives you to opportunity to contrast with different fabrics and adds that extra something to make table decorations really stand out. Don’t be afraid of this rough texture—it’s the newest trend in fashionable weddings!                                                                               e350c048c3af62d82c89f175de70bd47 7dc34af7f0d40a37db1ff31f9e19236c

    You really found some interesting ideas that are so simple! I never would have thought to use ribbon as a backdrop, genius. Great suggestions! I wonder if there is any way to do something for a Jewish chuppah out of ordinary things? I know those are pretty common.
