Everybody wants their wedding reception to be unique and memorable. It’s difficult for people to decide what to do and where to start as ideas can be never ending. Start by thinking about the wedding decorations, and everything will fall neatly into place.
While choosing your wedding decorations, consider the following points:
The season has a great impact on your wedding arrangements. Spring weddings call for soft colours and unstructured flowers, while summer weddings should be full of bright, tropical colors. Autumn weddings look their best with combinations of oranges, yellows and bronzes. Winter weddings demand a cosier feel and heavy colours such as red, silver and gold. Autumn weddings can also be inspired by trees and the autumn bride will look lovely dressed in dainty lace overlays with autumnal tones.
A seamless effect can be created with stunning wedding decorations. A garden wedding reception does not require too much decoration, and a charming effect can be simply achieved with rustic objects and items such as pretty metal watering cans. Vintage decorations are perfect for historic houses, while traditional schemes look good within a modern hotel setting.
Ideally, the wedding colours should be reflected in the venue’s paint, wallpapers or carpet, but if you’re unable to change them or play with them, you can bring in other elements such as table clths and chair drapes. Your colour scheme should build around plants and flowers if you are having your reception outside.
The degree of formality
You need to determine how formal your wedding is going to be before you decide on the decorations. Floral tables are appropriate for a formal event. In addition to this, go for traditional escort cars to take you there, and an organised seating plan. For a more casual wedding, floating candles and mini cup cakes on the tables would make lovely centerpieces. Let the guests decide where they want to sit in a casual wedding.
Nothing looks more amazing than the bride and groom adding their own personality to their wedding reception. So think what would be best for your wedding. You can apply your own preferences, such as countries, animals, music, fashion or movie inspirations.
Decide your starting point and make a list or scrapbook of everything you come across. Go through wedding magazines and fashion websites to help you make an effective wedding reception decision.
