Decorating your Wedding Venue
Do you have a certain ‘look’ that you want to achieve - not just for you - but for the whole event? Whether you have a colour scheme in mind or a theme it's important to get it just right, so if you’re nervous about bringing your wedding vision to life it could be well worth employing an event designer who can advise on everything from table design to firework displays.
Themed weddings are more popular than ever, with the 'vintage' look still right there at the top. Some couples strive to be a little more different though, with favourite films being recreated such as Star Wars and Harry Potter.
Choices of decorations
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.
