On your wedding day, the sweetest thing you’ll hear is “I do.” These two words will begin the rest of your days with the person you love the most. And so, in all aspects of your wedding, you want to stick to the do’s and avoid the don’ts at all costs. This is true even for your wedding décor. To help you plan the décor for the most special day of your life, here are some wedding decoration do’s and don’ts that you should keep in mind:
DO incorporate yours and your fiancé’s personalities into the décor.
This is one of the most important tips that you’ll get regarding your wedding décor. You want all of the elements in your wedding to represent who you are as a couple, so choose decorations that both of you like. Your decisions shouldn’t be based on what other couples you know have done. If you want to be quirky, then be quirky. If you want to be elegant, then be elegant. After all, you’ll have this wedding only once, so better make it something that the two of you will truly enjoy and remember for the rest of your lives.
DO consider the wedding venue.
Not all wedding venues are the same—your wedding décor will depend on where you hold your wedding. For example, you can’t use candles for an outdoor wedding because the wind will blow out the flame anyway. (Unless you place them inside glass containers to protect them from the wind.) If you’re holding the wedding inside a hall, you need to check if there’s enough lighting. Think about how you can improve the ambience of the venue where you’re holding your wedding so that it stays on theme.
DON’T go overboard with the decorations.
You might be tempted to purchase all the beautiful wedding decorations that you can find from Chair Cover Depot, but hold on to the thought! Have you thought about how all these elements will come together? Before you start buying, make sure that you have a concrete plan in your head. It will also help if you create a vision board for how you want your wedding to look like. This way, you have a clear idea on which décor pieces and elements you need to purchase. Also, remember that in most cases, simplicity makes a wedding look more elegant and sophisticated.
DON’T get too matchy-matchy.
A little contrast in textures will make your décor look more interesting. For example, on the tables, use different textures of linen for the table cover, table runner, and napkins. The same can be said for the centre pieces. If you’re using flowers, use different kinds mixed with a few greens. For colours, choose shades that complement and contrast each other, so that your wedding doesn’t look monotonous and boring.
Your wedding day is truly a special and magical day not just for you and your fiancé, but also for your friends and family who are attending the ceremony and reception. Hopefully, these wedding décor tips will help you set the tone so that everyone, especially you, will enjoy every bit of your wedding.
