An added bonus – by thinking creatively and shopping for your wedding decorations in ‘unlikely’ places you’re likely to save money along the way. This is because you’ll avoid that strange little phenomenon which seems to dictate that anything sold with the implicit purpose of a wedding automatically comes with a dramatically inflated price tag. Ever notice that…?

Watch for clearance sales of seasonal merchandise which can inspire wedding decorating ideas and incorporated into your wedding decor too. The post-Christmas season is an excellent time to pick up bargains on decorations for upcoming fall, winter, or Christmas weddings. At that time of year many stores are clearing out themed decorations and decorating merchandise at bargain-basement prices. This makes for a wonderful opportunity to pick up items which will lend themselves to exquisite wedding decor.

Keep in mind that these types of seasonal items are generally only available during the holiday season, so if you are planning holiday season wedding, that’s the time to do your buying. You won’t find such themed decorations in July or August, as your wedding draws nearer!
