The decorations at your wedding reception should amaze you and your guests when you enter the room and create a certain ambiance that sets the perfect mood for your reception what ever you may wish that to be. It is sometimes extremely difficult thinking about where to start with it all! There is so much to consider and a lot of people worry about getting each little detail perfect so that nothing can ruin their special day. To help you out we have listed below are all the things you need to plan and think about when preparing the decorations for your ideal wedding.

One of the first things to consider is whether your wedding and/or wedding reception are going to be themed. The theme may simply be something such as a traditional ivory theme that is pleasant and classy or it may be something completely different such as a fabulous girly pink and glitter theme. Your theme may be something such as glamorous diamonds or a soft, gentle garden theme, maybe even something out of the ordinary such as a carnival or festival theme it’s completely down to your individual taste as a couple.

One thing to remember is that when you have chosen the theme or just simply a colour scheme for your wedding reception you need to then focus on how to decorate the room accordingly. There are a number of things which you need to consider when decorating your wedding reception according to the theme you have chosen, such as; The colour scheme of your decorations on a whole, centre pieces that tie into your colour scheme and/or theme, type and colour of the flowers, candles, seating plan boards or name cards, lighting and any extras, this could include confetti or crystals and balloons to decorate the room or tables etc.

A really useful tip to keep in mind when it comes to planning the decoration of your venue is the time of year you’re getting married. If your wedding falls on or shortly after a public holiday such as Christmas or Easter its likely there are going to be many decorations up already, in some cases you may want to remove them and start from scratch especially if they are nothing like the theme of how you have always imagined your wedding however, why not try and work with them? It will save you a lot of money, time and effort, have a chat with the venue owners and see what they have locked away in the spare room, attack or even on order ready to be put up when the time is right before you go running off in search of everything.
