Depending on your wedding, you are definitely going to want to customise every aspect that you possibly could. And if your venue doesn’t allow for sweeping changes, especially if it’s a museum or historic wedding venue, then every small detail can go a long way. There are plenty of ideas that can alter the ambiance of a wedding, and allow you to personalise it as much as possible, without having to pay high-maintenance changes. Here are a few easy to implement ideas that can make a big impact on the wedding.
Drape the ceilings
With just a small amount of fabric, you can have some fantastic effects. You can reinforce the formal and elegant style with white drapes, or if you’re looking for more lively moods, then you can choose bright and vivid colours. If you opt for this approach, you can go light on table décor and still get that complete look that your reception deserves.
Use patterned pillows
If you have a lounge area in your venue or have thought of using your own or rented furniture, then a great choice is to have pillows. The best way to decorate those pillows is to buy patterned fabric yourself, and then decorate them the way you see fit. And since you’d be the one buying fabric rolls, you can also use it for any other low-key decoration, whether it’s for chairs, tables, or some more eccentric dress design, it’s up to you.
Hang your flowers
Instead of arranging flowers on the tables like everybody else, consider suspending them above the tables. This way you would create a much more intimate space for the guests. This way, their view is bound to be much more focused on the flowers, rather than the ground or their dinner plates. Experiment a bit with the height, and since it’s such an easy décor to implement, get ready for the compliments from the guests.
Use coloured glassware
Instead of focusing on a very intricate centrepiece, which most of the guests won’t even interact with, you can opt for getting coloured glassware that your guests will be using nonstop. You can choose a colour scheme that goes with everything else, or if you prefer something more festive and playful, use different colours for every piece of glassware. Only make sure to not have an explosion of colours, as that can detract from a wedding rather than enhancing it.
Order calligraphed menus
Instead of printing generic and simple menus, you can make good use of calligraphy to add an extra touch of flavour. There are plenty of different scrips that you can choose from, and all sorts of styles that can go along with every type of wedding. You can use traditional copperplate for black tie formal, or even something more free-form for a more playful setting. It’s up to you.
A wedding doesn’t have to be decorated by previously set standards. Making good use of your imagination can go a long way towards hosting a wedding that will be talk about for years to come.
come.come. Simply make sure that you’ll enjoy it yourself, because that day is for you.
