The trick is to think ahead and choose decor for your wedding that you would also like in your living room or on your patio. For some upcycling inspirations, here are some of our favorite ways to give decor life long after your first dance.
Keep the Candles Can you ever have enough candles? Said no one, ever. Unless your wedding pillars are completely melted by the end of the party, pop them into a box to be re-lit at home. Place candles of varying heights along your mantle or save them for a romantic night in the bedroom. If you have a memorable flame, such as a unity candle or a candelabra you placed on your sweetheart table, save the setup for special occasions. Break out the candelabra on your first anniversary for a sentimental toast to one year.
Hang Your Mirrors Decorative mirrors are one of the easiest decor items to bring back to your abode. You can put a mirror in every room! Consider using a mirror for your table assignments or ceremony signage. Have it calligraphed with a chalk pen that you can simply wipe it clean post-reception. Then, hang the mirror in an entryway or guest bedroom to magically update the space.
