There is a lot more to decorating a venue that some think, with table decorations, chair covers, name place cards, marquee linings and much more all needing to be sourced within your colour scheme or theme.
For a bold, cheerful look to your reception venue consider wedding balloons for your main decorations rather than flowers, with displays using balloons in different colours, including metallic or pearl finishes, and an assortment of sizes and styles. Most suppliers can arrange everything from table decorations and wedding balloon arches using helium balloons, to a balloon release at the end of your wedding reception party.
Hanging decorations can really enhance a room or marquee with bunting and paper pom poms being very popular.
Candles are perhaps the least expensive and most effective way to transform a plain venue to a wedding wonderland, particularly for a winter wedding when light fades so early in the afternoon. Cluster a few simple tea lights in glass holders in the centre of each table, using a mirror below to double the impact.
