Essential Guide to Decorating a Wedding Venue

An Essential Check-List to Making a Wedding Venue Yours

Although those all-important factors such as the show-stopping dress, rings, honeymoon and venue are super important considerations for any wedding, it’s those finishing touches that make a wedding unique to you and allows you to give your big day that stand-out factor that you’ll remember, and that your wedding pictures will capture forever.

Here are a few things to consider, not all essential, but items you might like to explore when thinking about adding some extra sparkle to your big day.

Wedding Venue Decorations Considerations

  • Hanging decorations such as garlands, wedding pom poms or bunting
  • Dried or fresh flowers
  • Wedding balloons
  • Decorative letters or other backdrops
  • Snack stations
  • A place to keep favours
  • Candles (realistic-looking battery-powered ones) and other lighting such as fairy lights or lanterns
  • Flowers and garlands
  • Chalkboards and signs
  • Somewhere to display your cards and presents such as post boxes
  • Ways to showcase pictures of the couple
