These days nothing about a wedding is simple and everything is grand by design. Indeed, it should be that way, for this is a very rare occasion for anyone and most probably comes just once in a lifetime. People fret over just what they can do to make their weddings more memorable. Wedding decorations have an important role to play in that respect.
Here are some simple high level tips that should help you come up with some beautiful decorations that your guest will love and admire.
It is easy for you to get excited about decorations and fill every part of the venue with flowers and other components. At times, things can get too crowded. Some people may like it but you want your venue to feel open. You want people to be able to move freely and enjoy themselves. Therefore, it makes sense to place your decorations so that there is enough space between them.
This is a challenging task especially if the venue is small and there are many guests. However, if the choice is between elaborate decorations and comfort, the latter is the wiser choice. You can also employ other techniques to make your venue look more spacious and comfortable. Some of them include optimal placement of furniture and clever use of lighting. The organizers should be able to help you out with this.
Going with a theme
Themes are common for many weddings today, but they are not quite traditional. You can choose a theme, which is not too outrageous. You might want to go with some very unique and uncommon themes. However, it is important that you consider how comfortable your guests will be with the whole concept. If your guest list includes a lot of elderly people, they might not appreciate a drastic change in the wedding decoration.
It is easy to go overboard with themes today as organizers get very creative and suggest some great ideas. Remember that you want to keep the focus on the wedding rather than the decorations. The decorations are only complementary to the whole event. They shouldn’t be overtaking your wedding in attention.
Use themes that are meaningful to you and will enhance the spirit of the occasion and make you feel even better. If you follow traditional ceremonies, then you might want the theme decorations to fit in well with the events that are about to take place. In other words, your wedding decoration should blend in with your wedding rather than overshadow it.
Hiring a good videographer
You can decorate your wedding venue all you want, but it is your photographer and videographer who make it look good on screen. Before hiring someone, ask them to show you their previous work. Look at how they have covered your wedding and how well the decorations have come on screen. Good camera work does make a big difference.
Consultants are professionals who have organized many weddings and they understand what people like and don’t like. You usually end up following their ideas. However, you can come up with your own ideas for decoration and ask them to make it work. Depending on their point of view, they might suggest some changes to the decoration.
Wedding decorations are important for your occasion, but remember that they are only part of the event. You can delegate most of the decoration to professionals, while you focus on other areas of the wedding. People attend dozens of weddings each year, and you can make yours the most memorable one by getting your decorations right.
