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.
Reuse Throw Pillows, Blankets, and Linens You decked out your cocktail hour lounge with color-coordinating pillows and had baskets of blankets on-hand for the chilly evening. What a hostess! The good news is that these are great items to incorporate into your home too, says Francesca DiSalvo-Follmer of Pure Luxe Bride. She suggests that during the planning process, pick items, like napkins and throws, that fit with your home decor as well as the wedding vibe. Also, be sure that you approve of the fabric for long-term use. “Find some youd like to own, so you can keep them after the wedding is over,” she advises.
There is no in between. Either way though, if youre looking for a bit of creative inspo re: decorations that you definitely wont be seeing everywhere this year, look no further than clear acrylics.
