There are certain things that we cannot leave for later and that is that decorating a wedding is an essential part of making this a success. Years ago, what was special and what the guests remembered about an event of this kind was the food, the banquet that had been served. For a while now things have changed and much; Now our guests will remember our wedding day because of the details, because they entered a magical and unrepeatable place, because everything was so beautiful that there was no lack of detail.
Honestly, a meal can be given any other day but the intimate atmosphere that awakens a wedding will be much harder to find. I’m not talking about leaving you hungry! What I mean is that they served a huge amount of dishes with amounts of food that nobody can eat and the truth, with what the menus cost today, I think it’s a waste. Still, of course, everyone has their priorities and they are all very respectable, more would be missing!
We enter that magical world that I was talking about that is felt from the entrance of the guests and they begin to admire the beautiful things that you have placed to celebrate your great day in their company. Because you want that moment to be special for everyone. And believe me you will enjoy living them, taking pictures in every corner. And we already know what happens with the photos … which are an indelible memory. Personally I think that the most important thing about this event is to have a very careful decoration and a good photographer. If we skimp on that, we will probably regret it.
Of course! and if I don’t get the budget, what will I do? Simply adjust everything to that budget and choosing the best based on it. Maybe sit down and make a good approach to what we want, our priorities and eliminate those that are not if necessary.
I have attended weddings where the bride and groom had told me that the restaurant puts the decoration on them, that in the price of the menu it also includes the centerpieces and the minutes for the menu.
Then I have verified that yes, that the restaurant has placed an empty white table in one of the spaces that is not known for what it is, in another corner a solitary sign, some glass jars on the other hand that say nothing … Placing a piece of furniture is not decorating, and in my opinion, if I’m going to place an empty one that doesn’t make any sense, I’d rather not put it. Imagine that same piece of furniture with flowers, pots, green, candlesticks, candles, a sign! All that, does not put the restaurant as a rule.
It all depends on where it will be held. Although if we still have nothing contracted, it is best to decide first the theme and then choose the place.
It will always be easier to make a rustic wedding in a farmhouse surrounded by nature than in a restaurant in the city.
Perhaps you have always dreamed of being a romantic wedding, or on the other hand you love the photos you have seen of bohemian weddings with colored carpets in your path or those of those rustic weddings in the countryside.
If on the contrary, it is in the place where you are going to celebrate the banquet, we have many more options. Imagine what I said before, the guests arrive and see some beautiful chairs with a corridor that leads to the space where in a short time you will give yourself the If I want! A flower arch, a teepee with an Emmanuelle chairs for you, a wooden triangle with a spectacular flower arrangement …
But you can present the case that you like things of various styles and then there is nothing more to combine. I assure you that we can create a space where everything (or almost everything) that you like can be introduced whenever there is a conductive thread.
I personally don’t like to stick to something in particular either.
For the beginning, for the Welcome and the Ceremony! If your wedding is in a Church you can decorate it with flowers, with bouquets on the banks, with glass jars with flowers.
Although if we adhere to all principles, we have started with wedding invitations, right? Well, I like it, if possible, to continue with the same style both for decoration, as for the rest of the stationery such as the minutes, marcasites, etc.
Of course we have received our family and friends with a nice welcome space.
Then we will continue by the banquet place.
Believe me if I tell you that when you arrive at the reception and see beautiful chairs, beautiful tablecloths or instead some empire wooden tables, with a green garland that runs through it, the presentation of each covered with its napkin placed so special and that colored glassware (or not) that shines with the candlelight you will be amazed. You will want to be there all night, and your guests … too!
There are several places that it is advisable not to overlook:
- Welcome corner
- Corner of rice, soap bublles or petals
- Seatting plan
- Signature cornes
- Sweet tables or desserts
Then you can add already depending on your tastes:
- Cigar bar
- Corner for hats or umbrellas
- Corner of dance accessories
Imagination to power, everything you can think of!
And of course, it is essential that we do not forget the lighting. Especially if the wedding is at night. There are many retro garlands or light bulbs that contribute to a unique atmosphere.
And even tomorrow, candles are always an important elements.
What colors you like? Any special? Make a list of what you have imagined and then look for images with these colors. It will be a good way to see it “in situ” and you can get an idea to choose better.
All spaces have to be coordinated and then we will have our great ally: flowers! With them we can make a lot of combinations or use them to accentuate the spaces.
In next posts I will give you examples of the latest color palettes.
Don’t worry, planning a wedding takes a lot of time and dedication. There are many flanks to attend if we want everything to be perfect. For this, we can hire a wedding planner and if we already have everything but we want to put special emphasis on our environment, in our decoration, we can hire a wedding designer or wedding decorator.
I think the result is worth it because it will take away many headaches. We create the design and then put it into practice, we dedicate ourselves to this and it is much easier for us. The price does not have to be excessive, it is like everything … the more sugar, the sweeter. But you can do precious things with all kinds of budgets.
The decorator will guide you, advise you and provide you with the necessary as well as contact with other suppliers who also have to collaborate and we will also take away the problem of having to ask someone to place it on the same or previous wedding day. .
You have to be enjoying the moment to the fullest.
If on the contrary, you do not want to hire anyone, you will have to get down to work well in advance. To want is power!
If you are reading this post it is because you are a retailer, you like beautiful and well-made things and I advise you, that if you do not like the chairs that the restaurant has for your ceremony, for example, if you can change them! It is not so much investment and you will be more at ease. Otherwise, when you see the photos in the future the first thing you will see are those chairs that you liked so little.
I anticipate that in future posts we will try different decoration styles so you can find yours as well as the color palettes so that your wedding is unique and above all, very personal. Very you !!
