The location of the celebration is perhaps the most important part of every wedding after the dress. That's why you have to take your time to choose the best wedding venue and decorate it to perfection. It doesn't matter if you have a professional decorator or want to do it all yourself, there are a lot of decisions to be made. Here are some tips for perfectly decorating your wedding venue:
Think of a theme
Before you start shopping for decorations, it's important to find a specific theme for your venue. It can be anything you want: an elegant, rustic, floral, understated wedding, or even a themed wedding based on a movie or historical era. If you can't decide, search online for some unique venue ideas . Once you've decided what your main theme is, decorating will be much easier because you'll have an idea of what colors to use, what kind of items to have, and which flowers are ideal for your theme.
Another important point to remember when decorating your wedding is that not everything has to be brand new and purchased! In fact, turning your wedding into a little DIY project will not only save you money, but also make you feel more involved. And get your family and friends involved, if possible! It doesn't have to be complicated, just get your hands on scissors, super glue and different fabrics to create small but important decorations. Of course, there are plenty of areas where it's best to hire a professional, but some small parts can easily be done on your own.
Make the most of the ceiling
Decorations hanging from the ceiling can really change the look of your place. Usually wedding venues have considerably high ceilings and not using them is a crime. Now you can hang almost anything from the ceiling, but some common ideas include flowers (real or fake), paper decorations, lights, or even curtains. It will give your wedding venue a more impressive look and fill the space. Having high ceilings and not doing anything with it can make the place feel a bit empty and uncomfortable.
Lots of flowers
Flowers are known to make any space livelier and fresher. They are especially important for weddings, as they make beautiful natural decorations and complement the venue harmoniously. Flower bouquets can also be perfect as a table centerpiece, between foods, with a beautiful color combination.
If you're not a big fan of plants, you can also use fake ones – you may find some that look incredibly realistic. Still, make sure you don't forget to use enough flowers in your room, of course, ones that match your color scheme and theme.
Make it personal
It is important that your wedding venue is not just any location. Do you want to personalize the space so that it reflects your personality and that of your partner? This can be done in many ways, introducing some of your greatest passions through decorations or using pictures and initials.
A great idea is to make a family photo wall , showing the family tree and childhood photos of you and your partner. Another way to personalize your wedding is to use big letters that spell out your names and a few other words that you refer to. All of this will really make you feel like it's a special day for your couple!
Weddings are about celebrating love and creating memories. There are many photos taken at weddings, not only by the groom and the bride, but also by the enthusiastic guests. It is essential to provide your guests with this photo space. This can be done with photo backgrounds provided for this purpose and which recall your theme. Leave them something to write on or some props to use for fun photos.
Think about the lighting
The lighting in the room actively contributes to the atmosphere. You can make your wedding light and sunny with big windows and bright lights, or you can make it more intimate and cozy by choosing a windowless venue and decorating it with small warm lights. If you opt for the second option, also consider using candles, giving the room some warm natural light. You can also play with colored lighting or moving lights for a fun atmosphere – it's perfect for the dance moment of the evening!
Use colored glassware or plates
When trying to decorate the table according to your theme, you can get creative. A great way to make the table stand out is to use colored glassware or plates. For example, if you have a lot of blue color in your room, you don't want to overdo it by also using a blue tablecloth for the table. However, if you make the painting minimalist, you can add blue glasses and maybe blue flowers, it will complete the theme perfectly.
Food as decoration
Having a variety of good quality food options that will suit everyone is absolutely crucial in a marriage. That's why the food is definitely not the part of the wedding you want to go wrong with; the wrong choice can ruin the event and leave guests with bad memories. However, besides taste and quality, food can also serve as decoration on its own.
Some catering companies take care to prepare meals and bites in such a way that they look appetizing and create a beautiful composition on the table. This also applies to the wedding cake , since it is such an important part of the wedding, you can really go wild with the ideas and turn it into a wonderful centerpiece decoration.
Let nature do its job
If you decide to have your wedding outdoors, decorating may become less of a concern. There are so many beautiful landscapes in which you can get married, such as a beach, forests, surrounded by mountains or other scenic spots. If that's what you're aiming for, breathtaking nature will already be the biggest aspect of your wedding. This is what guests will also want to see in the photos. Therefore, if you already have a beautiful natural view, do not overdo it with a lot of additional decorations that will go unnoticed.
