When you think about your decorations, there are many areas that you need to cover. Here are the most popular categories:
  • Wedding Table Decoration
  • Centerpieces, table arrangements and table jewelry are what covers this category. Think about candles, flowers, petals, confetti, figurines and more. Also the way you set up your table can constitute decor by itself. Place cards, votives, wine glass shades and table numbers are some of the items that can help your table settings are unique.
  • Garden Wedding Decorations
  • If your reception or ceremony are taking place outdoors, small details can create an amazing look and make any garden go from ordinary to extraordinary. Aisle runners rose petals, shells, pomanders, archways and others can be part of the décor. Creating a frame for the wedding aisle can be achieved with the use of original items like themed garden stakes if you have a garden ceremony.
  • Balloon Decorations
  • The use of balloons as part of wedding décor is being embraced by couples with a tight budget and fun theme for their event. Balloons can adapt to any theme and be used as part of centerpieces, archways or wall décor.
  • Outdoor Christmas Lawn Decorations
  • These type of décor helps any indoor venue to have a holiday feeling in the cold months. Life size nutcrackers and Christmas wedding archways are part of the original approach to embellishing a wedding hall or church.
  • Flower Decorations
  • Flowers can be found in almost any type of wedding and are a classic symbol of love. While roses and lilies are traditionally bridal favorites, exotic and wild flowers have also a big impact on wedding décor. Orchids, Hydrangeas, tulips, carnations, daisies and sunflowers are very popular as well.
  • Head Table wedding Decorations
  • The head table wedding decoration generally has a vibe and same theme as the guests tables, but is always bigger and spectacular by itself. The head table can also be adorned with string lights and candelabras to accentuate its importance in the venue and event.
  • Church Decorations
  • Flowers, candles, personalized aisle runners, pomander balls, pew bows and more help brides to bring their signature and style to their church. Sometimes these items serve double duty being transported and taking part as reception hall decorations as well.

    Wedding Decoration Ideas

    While many of your decorations will have to do specifically with your theme, there are some ideas that you can implement in any type of wedding.

    The use of theme archways at your venue is a simple and fun way to let your guests know what is to come. They also serve as amazing and original backdrops for wedding pictures.

    Using unconventional elements instead of flowers for your centerpieces can also bring a different vibe to your day. Figurines, candles, shells, feathers and fake diamonds are some of great affordable options.

    If your theme allows it, think about unconventional vases for your centerpieces. For example, a couple with a western theme wedding can use boot shaped planters to bring the cowboy look to the tables.

    For a garden wedding, teapots or cups can serve as part of your decoration or as original vases.

    Think outside the box and use not so traditional elements to bring your signature to your day. And most of all have fun with your planning and theme!
