    I've recently started to try and make plans for my wedding and was wondering how people kept to their budget. We are on a very small budget and just wondered where people found wedding decorations for tables and etc. xx

    I am on a small budget too and to start with I worked out how much I could realistically afford then started a spreadsheet and split that budget between everything I needed then tried to stick to it. Some things I have gone over on but only by a few pounds. I have got most of my decorations from the bay and @[email protected], you can get good quality things for so much cheaper x

    For decorations I would look on the bay, @[email protected], the [email protected], dunelm mill, hobbycraft, family/home bargains and places like that xx

    Agree with Flossie. They are my go to places. It's amazing how beautiful things can come out cheap when you did and buy all the bits separately

    I never really set myself a budget but knew I had to keep it to a minimum so that I could spend the extra on the venue and dress etc. I kept it as low by selling stuff on the bay and then buying stuff cheap on there as well with the money I had got from selling stuff. That saved a lot.
