How to Add that Affordable Luxury Touch to Your Events
Let’s face it, even the most luxuriously decorated events that are nothing less than a fairytale dream event are also on a budget. If it weren’t for a budget, people would simply lose their creativity to come with new and practical ideas to make any event look magical and unique.
Be it a wedding, company event or a conference the list of furnishings, and event décor add the glamour and color. Furnishing and décor complement the overall design, reinforces the theme and communicates a message of style, class and exquisite choice.
You need not have to exhaust your savings in order to host a great event. Have a look at these money saving tips to create a memorable event of the year without going bankrupt.
Timing of the Event
Venue booking accounts to 1/3 of the event cost if not more. But, if the venue can be booked during off-season then you have higher chances of negotiating prices or even earn a bit of discounts from vendors. Avoid booking a few weeks or a month before the event.
Most of all avoid weekend evening timings which come out to be more costly than an event hosted on a Saturday afternoon.
To give a luxurious look to your event, but restricted by a budget, then pick venues that has character of its own. It could be an aquarium, Museum, art gallery, an old vintage mansion, historical site or even a vacation rental with a small garden for a unique intimate event gathering. Renting out a vacation home, saves up far more than renting a traditional venue; besides unique and old rental homes are the most talked about things in event planning these days.
Vintage is back in fashion, so use the venue’s story to decide a theme for the event. Pick a pattern to use it across on invites like scrolls, event program, escort cards or even have funky lights, do a motif pattern on the dance floor.
Bring Back the Color
Use color to bring about the posh elegant effect. From hanging flowers to a dance floor, or a chuppah, to framed vintage styled mirrors both add color, style, luxury and depth to your event more than the chandeliers. Use pink, lavender and orange, peachy shades of tablecloths, and napkins to liven up the guest tables. Plus they look exquisite in photographs, especially if it is an outdoor venue. Be creative, and get your event team to churn out DIY ideas with your team to use home décor items as props to brighten up the space. Or spray-paint some simple glass vases.
Invest in Lights
Just like a natural environment has a role to play, so do lights. Two or three lights accentuating from a single point can change the look and feel of the room. Light rentals can start from $12 to $35. In case you decide to go with a white marquee, use the color gels or light effects to create dramatic scenes that could go with the theme of your event. You can also using string lights and hanging light bulbs artistically in order to bring a touch of elegance and creativity.
A Bit of Furnishing
Use vintage style chairs, and add colored napkins on the guest tables. Use suede for the main table and regular white chairs for guest tables. You might want to look into using long tables which are more cost effective and in fashion now, than round ones. Use the elegant chiavari chairs at $9 or $10 or another alternative could be chameleon chairs. Upgrade your linen to a glamorous fabric like shantung.
Lounge furniture is cheaper than you expect, use the curved benches to spoil your guests a little bit more. Get Accent event rentals as your vendor to give you the best options available in classic lounges, and chairs according to your taste.
Skip on the open bar concept, and offer a signature cocktail menu and exquisite food taste menu, like Greek food. Instead of a lavish dinner, opt for lunch menu, and negotiate the full course meal with a duo or trio to include desserts.
