To save some money we did all our own wedding reception in our garden .
Everything from the marquee down to the smallest items came off of ebay and all of the items returned on ebay straight after the wedding so it cost us almost nothing.
We used plastic garden chairs but found plastic tables impossible to obtain . Use wooden dining tables . They are cheap and plentiful on ebay . Covered in nice table linen your guests will never know the tables are different .
Decorate your reception with ribbon and voile (cheap on ebay ) . We even found loads of plastic flowers for sale from The local Pasque .
Keep your searches within easy reach and don't buy anything you can't collect easily .
Winter is a great time to get some bargains for your spring / summer wedding . Just make sure you have storage space !!
Happy marriage .
