17 Amazingly Cheap Wedding Decorations Budget Brides Should Buy Online

Nikki Barr

Any bride currently planning her wedding will be more than aware of just how quickly all the tiny things add up - especially when it comes to wedding decorations.

Seriously, ask any blushing bride-to-be about the cost of fabric bunting, tissue paper pom-poms and cake stands and she'll probably knock you out.

But while the hardcore ladies are busy downing the coffees to win that lot of striped paper straws (also expensive) at 4am on eBay, the really savvy girls are cutting out the middle man entirely.

While intricate decorations are always best bought on Etsy, especially precious items like wedding rings, the paper props and accessories can all be purchased directly from wholesalers abroad, like AliExpress.

Here are a few examples of super cheap wedding decorations you can get for a fraction of their usual price...
