Paying particular attention to the little things are what makes the big things look great. For instance, clear, inexpensive drinks dispensers cost approximately $20 each. However, look at value added when placed at the ceremony site before the wedding for guests to have a fruit infused water beverage on hot summer days.
Another example is the bridal bouquets. Doesn't matter what type of flowers a bride chooses, if the handle is wrapped with a tad bit more embellishment, it could make a huge difference.
Not all event venues provide ceiling draping and indeed, it can run more than $1,000. Drawing your guests attention to a beautiful ceiling treatment instead of poles and canvas tops will alleviate more expensive decorations that you'll buy to make your wedding stand out from the crown (even on a lower budget).
