How Decorations Can Add Wow To Your Reception
Not everybody can afford to celebrate their wedding reception in a 5-star hotel ballroom or a vineyard. So if you have chosen a plain white tent or a blank space such as a loft for your dinner reception, you can still dazzle and mesmerize your guests upon entering the reception venue with just a bit of creativity here and there.
Here are some elements you can use to transform your wedding reception venue:
Flowers have a way of cheering up an otherwise boring room. Choose colorful mix of blooms that matches your wedding motif and use it in different elements at the reception: your stage backdrop, centerpieces, etc.
Highlight the Ceiling
Hang lots of lights at the ceiling and be amazed on how these immediately change the ambiance of your reception venue. Anything from chandeliers, lanterns, to bulb strings will do as long as this is well coordinated with the overall theme that you are going for.
Take on a Wedding Theme
Take your reception on a different level by embracing a theme for your wedding. Beach-themed, Coachella, Hollywood, and Rustic Chic are just some of the themes you can use. You can even personalize your wedding by using a theme that speaks a lot about how you and your partner met or something that you both love doing such as a travel-themed reception.
Display several photographs of you and your partner all over the venue to keep your reception interesting. Aside from adding your own personality in the venue, it also serves as a conversation starter for your guests while waiting for the reception to begin. You can display some snapshots of your love story, travel photos with your partner and even some cute pictures from your childhood.
If your venue has a high plain ceiling, you can choose to add few elements to beautify it. You can install drapes or hang Chinese lanterns, chandeliers, paper pom-poms or a combination of any of this at the ceiling.
Scatter several chalkboards or wood planks with handwritten notes such as important milestones or dates of your love story, love quotes, or a few lines from your vows to keep it interesting and cute.
Cozy with Candles
Use lots and lots of candles especially for a dinner reception. A candlelit room will immediately cozy up the mood and make the ambiance apt for a romantic evening.
