I’m here to help you bring together all of those fun and quirky elements that will make your wedding truly unforgettable, without draining your bank account.
1. Brainstorm different themes
Let’s start by unleashing your imagination and brainstorming different themes. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box! Consider your favourite colours, the ‘vibe’ you want to create, and even the season and location of your wedding. Mixing and matching different ideas can result in a truly unique and memorable event. Imagine a wedding in the woods infused with a touch of modern glamour or vice versa! The key is to let your personalities shine through and show just how much love is between you two!
2. Colour Schemes
Next up it’s time to research different colour schemes and design elements. Your colours will set the mood for your décor, so it’s important to choose wisely. Take a deep dive into online inspiration, explore images that resonate with you, and discover unexpected combinations you never thought of before. How about a deep burgundy and blush pink scheme with crisp white linens for a romantic ambiance? Or maybe a bold rainbow palette for a striking and exciting atmosphere?
3. Add unexpected and unique pieces
Now, let’s talk about adding those unexpected pieces that will make your wedding pop! Think outside the box and consider unique vases, quirky mirrors, or even works of art to breathe life into your reception area. Why not go for extravagant lighting? Just imagine your guests’ faces when they see light-up bars or glow sticks on the dance floor. It’s a surefire way to make your wedding a night to remember. Trust me, these surprise factors will make your wedding stand out from the rest!
4. Reception Centrepieces
The centrepiece of your reception area is the real showstopper that ties everything together. So take your time and choose wisely! From exquisite flower arrangements to only candles, ceramic bowls or event lamps, there’s an endless array of options that cater to your style and needs. Remember, the centrepiece doesn’t have to be extravagant. Even a simple vase with floating flowers can create a beautiful impact.
5. Meaningful details
Let’s not forget about adding meaningful details to your décor! It’s the perfect way to make your wedding truly unique. Incorporate symbols, objects, and colours that hold significance for both of you. It could be family heirlooms, items representing your shared journey, or even a nod to your favourite cities in the world. Handmade items or printed photos can work wonders in creating an atmosphere filled with love and connection. The sky’s the limit when it comes to these personal touches!
6. Floral design
Now, let’s bring the beauty of nature and floral bliss into your wedding decorations. Including natural elements can add that special touch to your big day. Floral centre pieces, hanging floral arrangements, potted plants and greenery runners can create an inviting atmosphere with the added benefit of fresh foliage. Place floral details along the ceremony aisle, create a statement ceremony arch, place them on the tables, or hang them from the ceiling. Remember, keep it simple and tasteful so that the decorations enhance rather than overpower your reception area.
Textures, textures, textures! Incorporating textiles into your décor is the perfect finishing touch. Whether you’re looking for warmth, elegance, or a fusion of colours, rugs, runners, and linens have got you covered. Picture an oversized jute rug setting the mood in a rustic barn setting or lush velvet furniture for your pre-drinks area for a touch of luxury. Get creative with different textures like cotton and linen to add dimension, and explore patterns such as intricate motifs for that exceptional final touch. With so many options to personalise; your wedding will be a feast for the eyes!
Finding the right balance of accents and lighting is crucial for creating the perfect atmosphere. Candles, fairy lights, bistro lights, par can up-lighting or custom neon lights are some ways to add that extra sparkle and provide subtle illumination in dark corners and hallways. They not only set the ‘vibe’ but also offer your guests something special. So get creative and experiment with different lighting options. You’ll be amazed at how stunning the results can be!
Now, let’s talk budgeting. Planning your wedding décor doesn’t mean breaking the bank. Set a clear budget and stick to it. By being aware of potential costs and researching items that fit within your budget, you’ll find the perfect accessories for your special day without any financial stress.
