Decorators & Wedding Stylists
Wedding Decoration Ideas
Thankfully, the cookie-cutter style wedding where everything looks the same as the previous wedding you attended is gone. Today, the bride and groom can let loose and create their own signature style and experience for their unique and special day.
So here is some tips and advice when creating the style for your wedding:
Designing a Wedding Theme
First rule of thumb when choosing a wedding theme is – choose one! Not a mish-mash of two or three… it will only get confusing. Your wedding theme can be inspired by your location, such as the beachside, at a winery, on a large country property or an elegant city hotel.
You can also choose a theme based on your favourite colour or a wedding motif such as hearts, stars, doves, starfish, seahorses or the family crest (if you have one). Use your motif throughout, from the wedding invitations to the table decorations, printed on your Order of Ceremony and on your thankyou notes.
Depending on your country of origin, you may opt for a cultural or historical theme such as Celtic, Asian or Hawaiian and include some of the unique customs and traditions as part of the wedding day.
Get in the Professionals
Inspired to create a stunning environment for you and your guests but not sure where to start? A professional event planning and design company can help you clarify your ideas and co-ordinate your wedding theme from the ceremony to the reception. Make sure you event designer understands what you want and you’re happy with their suggestions.
Bring a list of ideas and outline your budget to find out exactly what they can do for you. Ask for an itemised quote including travel and time spent setting up and taking down wedding decorations.
DIY Wedding Decorations
On a tight budget? There are plenty of DIY wedding decoration ideas to choose from. Source a local speciality shop and take advantage of their experience in the industry. They’ll be able to advise you on what works well and what quantities you will need for table linen, chair covers, candles, vases, flowers and any other decorative items. For colour choice, choose a maximum of three colours with one being your base colour.
Not sure how your table decorations will look? Set up a trial version at home to get an idea of how the colours and elements will work together and try different layouts. Once you’re happy, take a photo and pass this on to your decorative volunteer!
One last point, if you’re getting married at a church, there may be other weddings happening after yours and so make sure your wedding decorations are easy to put up and take down.
