Decorating a wide open wedding reception hall can be overwhelming, and get expensive fast.  Instead of trying to fill the space with costly flower arrangements and wedding rental items, look for affordable, huge decorations that can be done for the cost of supplies & a little time.

Because decorating from scratch can be tricky, today I’m sharing two wonderful resources for decorating a large, empty wedding reception space.  Read on for links and to my go-to solutions for this common wedding planning hurdle!
