Many sites and magazines feature beautiful reception settings with an "Anthroplogie" feel. You know what I mean - a long wooden table set in a field with mix matched china and chairs.
To rent these items for one arrangement is probably not too pricey but if you need 5, 10 or even 20 of these tables and other details your budget just got bumped up a lot.
While these images are beautiful, unless you can really afford it, they are for inspirational purposes only. You can take elements of the image like the antique china or rustic feel and incorporate those elements into your wedding.
Just because you may not be able to afford everything you see on a page doesn't mean you shouldn't tear it out or bookmark it and show it to your vendors. They'll be able to help you bring your vision to life at a price you can afford.
Remember, you should not go into debt to pay for your wedding.
