Weddings are so personal and your decoration, style, and theme allow you to make it your own, put your own style and taste into the day to make it all about you. Your wedding day can reflect your style, relaxed, formal, quirky, fun, or rustic and natural.
You really can make it your own, however, you need to decide a style, theme, and feel for your day and stick to it, ensuring all the different parts follow so when it all comes together it all falls into place.
But first, think about your color scheme and indeed what, if any theme you might have. Once you have an idea of the look and feel of your big day, this should underpin everything else you do, to create a seamless finish.
Guests will spend a decent amount of time at their table, so it’s important to think of wedding decoration ideas to make them attractive. Cleaned out jam jars and milk bottles with simple flowers always create a talking point, as do decorative bird cages and lanterns filled with tea lights.
Up-lighting is another source to invest in, to bring your reception to life. Mood lighting is a simple way to transform your venue, especially as day turns to night. Pair this with lanterns, which offer a striking way to lead guests from one venue to another as evening draws in.
As with above, knowing that guests are likely to post pictures to social media, think about wedding decoration that doubles-up as a pretty backdrop. This could be a wall of photos of yourselves through the years, or maybe a montage of passport stubs from your travels. It could be photos of your first date, or even all your guests placed individually, to make it more inclusive.
Neon lighting is a creative and quirky way to add a feature and backdrop, depending on your wedding style this is a cool way to add something different.
Homemade wedding decoration ideas could include a wall of flowers or even inviting guests to leave their handprint on a giant canvas. After vows have been said and guests are tucked up, it’s a special keepsake and memory of your magical day.
Whatever theme your wedding takes, there’s plenty of wedding decoration ideas to express your personality as a couple. These little touches can sometimes be the most memorable moments of a day since they’re often unique to the couple.
