Go out with a bang!
Are you looking for low budget wedding ideas? Wow, your guests with your very own fireworks display to end the night with a bang. If your budget doesn’t quite stretch to a full-on fireworks display but you still want to end the night with a spark, hand out sparklers with glasses of champagne for your guests to hold as you make your exit in the getaway car.
Outdoor Lounge Areas
Give your guests a place to relax between dancing their feet off on the dance floor and mingling with the other guests. Mix & match different furniture to create a cute lounge area with mellow lighting, and you can pick up different pieces of furniture online quite cheap or even free if you ask nicely.
This is the perfect idea for those looking for low budget wedding ideas, but still wanting a very chic look.

Your wedding cake
Even if you don’t have an elaborate cake you can jazz up the surrounding area and make it an eye-catching display especially if you are looking for low budget wedding ideas.
Create a feature display that will wow your guests using lights and flowers that you already have left over from your table settings.
Late night bites
Just when everyone is starting to wind down for the night bring out the late night treats. They could be sugar-filled goodies to bring the energy back up again or even some bacon rolls to fill your guest’s stomach’s before they leave for the night.
Either way, they will love you for it. Even on a low budget wedding, you can still wow your wedding guests.

Games and Wedding Entertainment
Keep the entertainment flowing with some wedding styled games. Our favorite is Mr & Mrs the wedding edition.
Have a few set questions and bring your guests into the mix by getting them to ask a question of their own, have chairs set back to back and use your shoes as makeshift paddles.
We guarantee that your guests will be laughing their socks off by the end of the game and it’s perfect for a low budget wedding idea, as it won’t cost you a dime.

Have a unique guest book for your guests to sign. Try to think outside the box and match it up to your theme as well. If you’re having a beach themed wedding for example rather than having guests sign a book have them write a message to put into a bottle.
This won’t cost you anything extra as we know you are planning a low budget wedding, but this will give a great twist that guests will remember.

Wedding Photo Booths
Although hiring a professional photo booth can be quite expensive it doesn’t mean that you can’t use that idea and create something similar yourself. DIY is ideal if you are planning a low budget wedding.
Dedicate a corner of the room or an outside space for your guests to take pictures and have a fun dressing up the box with a few different things in to really amp up the fun.
Have a few disposable or Polaroid cameras for your guests to use as well.
