What Impact does Decorating a Venue have on Your Wedding Day
Wedding decorations run the gamut from elegantly simple to extravagantly grandiose, the deciding factor being not just the bridal couple’s budget but also their personal tastes and preferences.
Choosing a Wedding Theme
All aspects of the wedding day are intrinsically interwoven with each other. The kind of gown the bride chooses to wear, the venue decoration and several other decisions depend on location of the venue, which itself depends on what time of the year the wedding is being celebrated. Whether the wedding theme includes favorite flowers, colors or location, it reflects the individual taste and style of the bridal couple.
While an outdoor wedding is great in spring or summer and calls for a distinctly outdoors type of decor, a winter wedding is definitely an indoor-event and requires a completely different kind of decoration.
The full extent of the decoration requirements can be determined only after the theme is decided and the guest list is drawn up.
Navigating the Decorating Frontier
There are several aspects to be determined when choosing a location. Is the bridal couple personally undertaking the entire venue decorating including the chair covers? If the reception venue is a very popular one, is there adequate time for putting up elaborate decorations between the two events? Is the bridal couple allowed to put the decorations at least one day in advance? Does the venue provide any kind of decorations at all?
The décor requirements for outdoor weddings are completely different. Choose a naturally picturesque venue and you will have a splendid backdrop for all your wedding photographs with a minimum of decorating. When organizing an outdoor wedding it is important to have an alternate venue in the event of unexpected bad weather.
Impact of Choice of Venue & Decorations
Here are a few decorating suggestions for different types of wedding themes and different locations:
Seychelles Wedding: With emerald green waters and shimmery white sands, Seychelles is the perfect venue for a beach wedding. Blue, lime and ivory are the perfect choice of wedding colors for this wedding; they go well together and bring out the best in the natural surroundings. In the bridal gown as well as the floral arrangements and the rest of the décor, choose any one color as the main color and let the other two colors complement it wherever possible for an absolutely stunning effect!
Moroccan-Themed Wedding: A Moroccan ambience can be recreated with by introducing color ones of oranges, reds, yellows and blues. Mosaic candle holders with colored candles, stained-glass lanterns and plush fabric drapes in deep, dark shades work fabulously.
Spring Wedding: Spring is reminiscent of a profusion of colors in every hue; choosing just one or two can prove to be rather difficult. Pastel colors such as soft pinks, lilacs, sunshine yellows and leafy greens work well to infuse the wedding venue with the cheerfulness and airiness that is so evocative of spring. Choosing a base color of ivory or white and blending in two select spring colors will help when trying to match various elements of the wedding gown and the wedding stationery to the chair covers and the rest of the wedding décor.
The choice of decorations is what creates the desired ambience of the entire wedding.
