Ikea is commonly known as a paradise for decorating hacks.
If you’ve only considered shopping them for dorm room decor then you might be surprised at the amount of Ikea wedding decor that you can find.
Of course most of their items have prices that are hard to beat so it’s worth checking out if you’re planning to DIY any of your wedding decor.
Not only will you find immense amounts of inspiration on Pinterest, but with just a little imagination you can make your wedding decor on a budget. Check out these ideas from Ikea.
The Borrby Lantern is a great piece that can be used in all kinds of wedding decor. They can be centerpieces for reception tables or line the aisles of the ceremony. You can fill them with flowers and other decor or even just a single candle.
One lantern makes a great statement on a round table but a grouping of them in one area is also eye catching.
They are available in black or white but for the ultimate wedding hack you can spray paint them to match your color scheme.
The Tolsby Frame is a great Ikea wedding staple that can be used for signs of all kinds. They work great as table numbers for guests, or you can also just use them as frames (which is what they are!) and put cute photo’s of the happy couple in them. Add these throughout the reception or at your sign in or welcome table.
Like any other Ikea item, you can easily spray paint these to match any style.
Skurar Candle Holder
Skurar is an Ikea candle holder but you can really use it to hold just about anything. It’s perfect for adding to your tabletops with a small bunch of flowers or use it as a candle holder. And like most of the other Ikea wedding items, a little spray paint can completely change up the look.
The Mala Easel makes a great directional sign that you can use in many places at your wedding.
It can be used to greet your guests and you can add pens to the tray for them to sign the guest book.
The tray could hold straws on the way to the drink station or birdseed for throwing at the end of the reception.
And did we mention spray paint? There’s always the option to paint the easel any color that will go well with your wedding decor.
The Socker Greenhouse is another item that can be used in so many different ways. It makes a great centerpiece filled with flowers or succulents, but we also love the idea of using it as a card holder. The clear glass sides make it a pretty accent.
Ikea Wedding Lill Lace Curtains
These sheer curtains can be used as a backdrop in so may different ways. Twine some sparkle lights through the curtain to make a glowing backdrop, or just use multiple sets of the curtains for a backdrop.
You’ll find that these curtains hold up a lot better than using tulle and the bonus is that they’re very inexpensive. Ask us how we know….
They can also be used to wrap columns either inside or outside. Add some colorful ribbon and it will make the entire area seem more festive.
The Ung Drill is a frame that features beautiful scrollwork all around it. Of course it can be painted any color and using the center of it just needs a little imagination.
We love using it as a photo prop or a decoration for your ceremony or reception. The bonus is that you can use it to frame a wedding photo later.
It also makes a great statement when you use it as a tray.
