When it comes to wedding decor and all those extra details, while you can go all out in terms of a budget, you don’t necessarily have to. Wedding budgets are getting bigger these days – the average Irish wedding costs around €25,000 and we’d imagine that’s the low end of the spectrum – but you needn’t spend a fortune to get gorgeous products for your wedding decor. Today, we’ve rounded up some beautiful-yet-budget-friendly ideas via Ikea and ways you could use each one from Pinterest. Scroll down to get some inspiration for your big day that will save some of your hard-earned pennies for bigger things – like the dress.
