Top 5 Wedding Decoration Ideas
When it comes to your wedding day, it’s the tiny details that can make it extra special. We’ve been chatting to Rio Lounge, specialists in event furniture hire, to find out their top 5 wedding decoration ideas to deck out your venue that’ll take your day to another level.
Raise the rafters
Use the vertical space in your venue to create a heavenly spectacle on high. Hanging decorations are a great way to fill a room or marquee to make it feel welcoming, intimate and festive, all at once. Consider ceiling decorations such as drapes, hanging flowers, bunting, lights or balloons to create a charming canopy above your heads.
Go green with botanicals
Fed up with flowers? Try a more understated approach to your wedding décor by swapping florals for foliage. Garlands of greenery will add a fairy tale feel to your wedding theme, and whether you opt for fragrant leaves like eucalyptus or evergreen options like ivy, your verdant venue will be perfectly in tune with the times – since Pantone made ‘greenery’ their Colour of the Year in 2017, this natural-style wedding theme is yet to fall out of fashion.
Your choice of lighting can transform your space. Fairy lights strewn about or arranged in a hanging curtain in the doorway can create a twinkling, intimate feel, whereas glamorous lanterns positioned on floors or tables will give you that flickering, candlelit ambience that’s perfect to take you from day to night.
Add a personal touch
Your wedding is unique to you as a couple, so celebrate with a display of objects, artefacts and photographs that reflect the story of you. You could project images onto a wall, or frame a series of sentimental snapshots and display them on a mantelpiece or shelf. You could even let guests add their good wishes with a guestbook, chalkboard or video message.
Seat your guests in style
Combine fashion with function and place your furniture centre stage. Chairs and sofas will take up so much space in your venue, so it makes sense to make them a focal point. Stylish chill-out sofa sets can be paired with side tables containing statement decorations such as lamps, photo frames, or giant silver bowls filled with flowers. Scattered cushions in bold colours are a great way to add a bright dash of colour to accentuate your wedding theme.
