Wedding Decor Ideas Your Big Day Can't Be Without
Weddings are wonderful events, even without the decorations and bling, though most brides deeply desire a beautifully decorated wedding and reception.
These wedding decorating ideas can help you plan a beautiful wedding.
Drape the Ceilings
It's amazing what a little fabric can do. Keep it formal and elegant with white fabric, or if you're after a fun vibe, opt for a bright color like yellow. Bonus: Take this approach and you can go light on the table décor and still get the same decked-out reception look.
Your wedding desserts deserve an equally sumptuous display. That's where this oversized trellis-turned-swing comes in to play, with a sturdy rope and platform to safely store the sweet treats.
Create an Escort Card Display
Instead of having an escort card table, create a board of seating assignments and display it near the entrance of the reception space. Bonus: You won't have guests squinting at tiny tented cards, trying to decipher their table number.
Lighting the Way
Twinkling lights or the glow of candles can add instant charm to a sunset or nighttime wedding or reception. But don't discount the allure of lighting during the daytime hours, especially if your venue is indoors or shady.
Pine Cone Decorations & Details
A pretty pine cone can become a simple place card holder or garland (spray gold for an extra festive feel) amd be used for table decorations and wedding cake decorations. Other cheap and cheerful decoration ideas include gold sprayed leaves, cinnamon and natural greenery.
Hot Beverage Bar
Keep your guests cosy with a hot beverage bar! Hot chocolate, tea and coffee or even mulled wine and hot apple cider will be a welcome treat at your venue and a lot less expensive than a cocktail hour. Decorate your station with DIY signs and simple foliage or lots more candles.
There's no shortage of spots in your wedding venue to place your floral arrangements, but you can't go wrong with this unique, staggered look from a leftover ladder. Stick with short blooms to avoid any overpowering arrangements.
Draped in linen and adorned in flowers, a simple wooden arbor becomes an elegant setting for an outdoor ceremony.
A must for rustic weddings, you’ll find chiavari chairs cropping up in most barn venues, with either white painted, lime washed, stained or natural wood finishes. Peter and Nicole decorated the soft, pale wood seating at Bassmead Manor Barns with milk bottles, tied with twine and filled with gypsophila, to enhance their whimsical, country theme.
Whether transformed into a seating plan, a pretty place to display your bridesmaids’ posies or even the frame for your very own story, ladders can be dressed up in all manner of ways to add a sentinmental and pretty touch to your reception. Their larger size also lends them to blank canvas venues, like Kirsty and Adrian’s at Celtic Camping, because they can help to zone different areas.
Wedding Mirror Display
Turn heads toward the head table with an eclectic gallery wall of vintage mirrors.
