  8. Rent Your Napkins and Linens: You can rent your linens and napkins in any color or pattern you want, so you won’t have to use the basic white linens and napkins your venue has to offer.
  9. Use Mirrors and Glass: They always add a fancy touch to any event.
  10. Mix the Table Shapes: Not all tables have to be round or rectangular; you can have both if they are placed nicely. They will give your wedding an elegant look.
  11. Add Chargers: Add the serving or charger plate under the main plates to add a splash of color that goes with your theme.
  12. Candlelight: Use candlelight to give a rich and romantic vibe to your wedding. 
  13. Metallic or Faux Crystal: Metallic items always look expensive but they aren’t necessarily. Faux crystal will also add a rich touch.
  14. Present Your Food in a Creative Way: You don’t have to serve the most expensive foods on your wedding. Your chef or caterer can create unique ways to present food to your guests, no matter how simple it is. Use shot glasses for soups, or ceramic spoons for bite-sized foods for example.
