Many brides want their wedding decorations to be elegant, lavish, and unique without the high price tag. Here is a great idea for getting just the look you want, but saving a lot of money.

Crystal embellishments from the craft or fabric store can be used to enhance every element of your wedding decorations. Long strands of crystals can be wrapped around vases of flowers or decorative columns, and across the top of the guest book table. Smaller crystals can be mixed in with bridesmaid bouquets and pew decorations. A small crystal glued to the wedding program cover will show your attention to the smallest detail.

If your wedding is in the evening, candlelight reflected off the crystals will set an elegant and romantic glow anywhere you use them—on the guest book table, on pews, at the altar. But even a daytime wedding will seem more romantic when surrounded by crystals. That extra sparkle when the sun catches the crystals will make a magical setting.

If you are planning a winter wedding, crystals can be especially useful in creating a “winter wonderland” theme. You can hang them from an archway with silver “icicles” to create a shimmery look. But this idea works well for warm weather weddings, too. The addition of crystal strands to hanging ferns at an outdoor wedding, for example, would add a touch of drama to an otherwise simple decoration.

Anywhere you can think of to add a crystal or two would be a little extra touch of elegance to your wedding day decorations.
