DIY on a budget is made easier with everyone’s favorite furniture conglomerate: IKEA. The Swedish brand is famous for having basic housewares at extremely reasonable prices. Many of their cheapest items can be used creatively to give your wedding an exquisite designer look without the high price. It was hard to choose my favorites, but these three items are CHEAP and really make an impact on a wedding space.

Use Lill Curtains ($5) to craft a stunning backdrop, hide the ugly banquet hall walls, or just add some romance. The fact that these are only $5 is incredible.

Tie them with twine and tuck in a menu and you have your cute place setting. Better yet, you’ll have plenty of dishtowels for your kitchen when the day is over.
