Affordable Wedding Decor From IKEA

Affordable Wedding Decor From IKEA

Living in the Metro Vancouver area, we are extremely fortunate to have, not one, but TWO IKEA branches. Did you know that IKEA can be a good source for affordable wedding decor? I made good use of it for my cocktail table centrepieces. All it took was a candle dish ($8.99), a lantern ($3.99), a tealight, some rocks and a gerbera daisy from the dollar store. It was simple, re-sellable, and it looked good, don’t you think so? Let me show you what else you can use for your wedding that you can find at your closest IKEA store :)

IKEA is a great source for candles, they have many different kinds, including tealights ($3.99/100), block candles ($1.99-$3.50), tapered candles ($6.99/8), and floating candles ($5.99/24).

They also have different tealight holders like the Galej ($1.99/4 – shown above) and the Joker ($0.99 – shown below).

If you’re making a seating chart, the easiest way to do it is use a large picture frame that holds multiple 4×6 pictures. That way, you can add photos of you and your fiance among the seating lists. IKEA has a frame for that too ($24.99).

You can find lots of vases for cheap, which you can then keep for your own use after the wedding or re-sell. The Rektangel series has a few you can choose in a variety of sizes including this medium sized one ($5.99 – shown below), and a taller version ($6.99).

These Rajtan spice jars can be used for favours like small candy or chocolate. You could even print out a circular label to stick on the side. This jar is definitely something your guest will be able to reuse ($3.99/4).

These may be seasonal but these super cute Socker vases would be great for garden or vintage themed weddings. ($12.99/2)

They also carry wrapping paper from time to time, which can work for wrapping prizes or even your cardbox.

All this is just the tip of the iceberg. I suggest taking a stroll through your nearest Ikea to see what you can use for your own wedding. All it takes is a little creativity :) You’ll be surprised at what you can come up with for such an affordable price.
