Weddings can be expensive, especially when it comes to the décor. Décor spruces up your venue and can help complete your vision. But with the costs of centrepieces, pew bows, seating charts and more the best décor is décor that you can use over and over again. From the bridal shower, to the rehearsal dinner, to your Jack and Jill and to the big day itself – here are our tips for 3 of the best reusable décor items! All are reasonably affordable and available at major craft stores.

Oversized candle lanterns can be a bit more pricey but are great décor pieces and will look great in your home after the wedding! These lanterns can be used as beautiful décor for a bridal shower and at your reception on the receiving table with your seating chart or by your guest book. You can even use them as centrepieces for your guest tables!

Chalk Boards

Chalk boards are super chic right now and are extremely versatile. With just chalk and an eraser you can change your chalk board’s message for each separate event, whether it’s the bridal shower or wedding itself. There are even amazing artists for rent that can create stunning chalk displays on your board, helping to refine your event even further.

Like chalk boards, string photo frames are big right now. With these frames all you need are clothes pegs to hang pictures which means you can easily change the pictures. You can hang baby pictures at your Jack and Jill or family pictures at your wedding. You can even hang place cards from the clips for your wedding seating plan. Search the dollar store, Party City and Michaels for these items or ask friends any family if they have any extra clothes pins lying around the house. Depending on the size of the photo, we found the mini clothes pegs worked best for this.

All of these items can be used from event to event and would even work for future parties you throw. In the meantime, they make easy home décor that guests are sure to compliment! What item did you use and reuse? Let us know in the comments. Happy Planning!
