Are you thinking about your Wedding Decoration Ideas? You should keep in mind about your wedding theme. You may not have an actual theme, but as long as you know what you want the overall “feel” of your wedding to be, that is enough.
If you already have your wedding dress, think about what wedding theme that falls into, is that traditional or casual.If you have already chosen your reception or wedding ceremony location, what theme do they follow, is that informal or formal.
Here are some wedding decorating ideas for your wedding reception broken down into wedding themes.
Romantic Wedding Decoration
For romantic wedding decor, put lots of candles, baby pink roses, dimmed lighting. Tables named instead of numbered as romantic movie titles, your guests can say “I’m sitting at Gone with the Wind table”.
Casual Stand Up Cocktail Party with Minimal Decorations
Add some fun photos of you and your fiance around the room. Have some flowers here and there and a beautiful view is all you’ll need.
Traditional Wedding Decor
For traditional wedding decor, look at your mother or even your grandmothers wedding photos for your inspiration. Think lace, pearls & cream roses.
Vintage wedding ideas is similar to Traditional with lace and creams instead of white, finger wave curls in your hair 40’s style. Look at flea markets & antique stores for inspiration.
For beach wedding decoration ideas, put sand in large vases with shells and star fish casually in the vase as a center piece, maybe a long candle as well. Nothing too colorful, keep it classy by having all white/pale shells and one small, pale orange starfish.
For winter wedding decorating ideas, put lots of fire places, mulled wine or eggnog, candles and fur coats.
Throw rugs casually strewn over chairs. Also, cross your fingers for a light snow on the day to tie in the wedding theme beautifully.
For fall wedding decoration, place beautiful colored fall leaves under a sheer table cloth on your tables.
Red apples with a wedge cut out of the top as place card holders, cinnamon and berries with rich red flowers.
For spring wedding decor, put lots of white & pink & greenery, cherry blossoms, fresh & fragrant, keep everything light and airy.
For hollywood glamor wedding ideas, put black ribbons & white flowers, a few large black feathers, mirrors on table under vases, name your tables’ classic romantic movies or actor/actress names
It is always lovely to observe your own religious traditions and remember your parents are probably the best for advice here. But keep the wedding decorations simple, white flowers and ribbons or whatever color is most appropriate.
Outdoor Wedding Ideas
This can give you great wedding ideas if you love the outdoors. Why not have your reception in the afternoon in a garden? Tie candles hanging low from trees, if it’s your garden plant things that will flower at that time, if it’s not your garden, buy pot plants to place around to brighten it up. You’ll need a back up rain plan though. Also have a little couple, hiking or fishing as the cake topper.
Wedding Decorating Ideas
Think Castles, Big Dress, a veil, and your prince charming. Look to Disney weddings for your inspiration.
Read through the latest & most expensive wedding magazines for the most modern wedding decorating ideas.
Visit a local recently built or refurbished restaurant or bar for ideas on latest decorating trends.
Something quirky like goldfish in fish bowls as centerpieces, have something your guests can sign, have a chocolate fondue fountain for dessert. Maybe have disposable cameras for your guests (but don’t let the groom’s single friends get hold of too many or you’ll end up with photos of who knows what)
Gothic Wedding Theme
Black, Black lace table cloths, lots of eye makeup, be careful of this wedding theme so as not to scare your grandmother.
Use this insect as the centerpiece of all your printed items; also have pretty faux insects under a shear table cloth.
