Yes, the Swedish retailer is known for affordable furniture and decor. But a few of their items could also pull double-duty during your special celebration. Your wallet will thank you later.

Check out some of our suggestions below for wedding essentials you can find at IKEA.

1. Dyning Canopy, $24.99

This 118-by-79 inch canopy could work wonders for an outdoor wedding. It's machine washable and you can keep it for future outdoor gatherings.

2. Festbjudning Dried Parts of Flowers/Plants, $11.99

We've seen lots of dried florals in decor lately, and they can definitely work for special events, too. Use these lovely stems to elevate your party and then add them to a room that needs a little extra something.

3. Glimma Unscented Tea Lights (pack of 100), $3.49

Love the idea of tea lights twinkling during your special day? Thankfully, IKEA has a 100-pack that will make your tablescape that much more magical.


4. Glasig Tea Light Holder (pack of 5), $3.99

Grab a few tea light holders, too, while you're at it. These finds are affordable but classy.
