Wedding decorations are an essential item of your big day and are vital in ensuring a cohesive theme across your different venues. Start off by deciding upon your wedding colour scheme or theme to help you to start finding inspiration for your wedding decorations. Pinterest is a great place to start when it comes to gathering together your wedding ideas, before creating your wedding decoration shopping list. Make sure that you keep your budget in mind, and you can even think about making some of the decorations yourself. We are here to help when it comes to incorporating your wedding stationery into your wedding decorations, so take a look at our top tips for making a start on your wedding decorations.
Where do you need wedding decorations
From flowers to signage, there is a lot to think about when it comes to your wedding decorations so before you hit the shops (or the internet) to find your wedding decorations, think first about what it is that you need to decorate. Well-placed wedding decorations can create a beautiful backdrop for your wedding ceremony and reception, and your attention to detail is sure to impress your guests. Use your wedding decorations to highlight the architectural features of your venue, such as drawing your guests' eyes up to the beautiful high ceilings. You will also have to bear in mind any restrictions that your venue may have, so if you aren't able to add anything to the walls then balloons and tall centrepieces are a great way to break up the space. Turning your wedding vision into a reality is not going to be easy, but we are here to help you make a start with a handy list of decorative elements you need to think about for your wedding ceremony and reception venues.
