When guests arrive at your event, provide plenty of signage to guide them to the ceremony, reception, and don’t forget the restroom! Use repurposed frames, chalkboard paint, and a little imagination and create one-of-a-kind signs that spread the message. Is there an artist in the family? Ask them to help design your signage to correlate with your theme and add a personal touch.

Flower power!

The decoration staple for any wedding is flowers. As a significant part of the wedding budget, flowers contribute to just about every aspect of the event decorations. They are the simplest way to bring color, fragrance, and beauty to your special day. In addition to the bride’s bouquet (which can be used as a centerpiece at the head table), use flowers to decorate the ceremonial areas, centerpieces, and even the food and gift tables. If you’re passionate about a particular bud or bloom, incorporate it into your theme.

Light up the night!

If the festivities go into the evening hours, provide soft lighting with string lights in trees or within centerpieces to accentuate the venue. For a more dramatic effect, create instant elegance with chic chandeliers hanging overhead. Strategically place lanterns along pathways to show the way and keep guests safe. Make the reception absolutely glowing, add lights under high top tables with long tablecloths to create a warm and inviting shimmer.

Every picture tells a story.

This is your day, share the love and your story. Create a photo display to show your relationship timeline, along with photos from childhood. Since the universal theme at a wedding is love, create a display of vintage wedding photos of parents and grandparents as a generational tribute to the institution of marriage.

With the right decorations, you can invent a style and theme to compliment any outdoor setting. When choosing your event location, be sure to ask about decoration ideas and resources available to accommodate your needs.
