Did you know that Ikea has both live and fake plants? Look for them in the garden/decor area for pretty centerpieces or ceremony decor.

Ikea has a fabric department that sells extra wide (60') fabric that's perfect for tablecloths and runners.

In the dining area, pick up inexpensive glasses, silverware, and plates for the reception (instead of renting them).

And don't forget about curtains and shower curtains! Located in the soft goods and bathroom sections, these can be used as inexpensive backdrops and tableclothes.

Want a pretty textured aisle runner? Pick up a few inexpensive bamboo shades in the window treatment area and stitch or glue them end to end for a fabulous aisle runner!
