Thеrе іѕ nоthіng more exciting in the wedding planning process that the styling. Whether you choose to hire a professional or do-it-yourself, it can be easy to get caught up in all the inspiration and then discover too late that what you had planned doesn’t suit your venue. Whatever your style, make sure your plans will suit your venue and tell your story. House of Doltone has five tips they want every bride to know about before making any decisions on the styling of your wedding venue! Be inspired by the stunning white and gold theme they styled for Sophie & Tsico’s wedding at Sylvania Waters.
Selecting a style for your wedding day early can make styling decisions a piece of cake. Your colours and theme will be woven through all of the details, creating consistency throughout the whole celebration and helping you and your partner tell your unique love story. Popular wedding styles include Modern, Luxury, Rustic and Vintage.
Insider trick! Combining real and artificial flowers in your floral designs will ensure you can get the luxury wedding you’ve always dreamt of. Use them over the dance floor, cascading down stairwells, or anywhere else that you’re guests don’t get too close to see that they aren’t real. Choose соlоurѕ thаt mаtсh your thеmе venue and sense of style.
Mirrored king tables, bridal tables and cake tables make a grand statement at wedding receptions. They are especially effective for evening receptions because they reflect candlelight and give your venue a luxury look. In the same way, they are also a simple trick for doubling your decor as they give the illusion of double the decadence.
Believe it or not, the linen at your wedding can play a major role in influencing the overall aesthetic. Speciality linen can bring your wedding theme to life, so before you go blindly with the linen provided by your venue, make sure you explore your options. In the same way that your wedding theme should take into consideration the natural colourings of your venue, so too should your linen!
How you use lighting in your wedding venue is another important styling choice and one that makes a big difference to the finished look of your wedding reception. Just remember that chandeliers and hanging pendant light often involve installations at a height, which will require a few sets of extra hands (and labour costs) to get everything in place during bump-in. Light up letters and festoon lighting is less time intensive and are great options if you want to keep your set up costs to a minimum.
When decorating your wedding venue, focus on the areas where the guests will be spending most of their time. The tables and dancefloor. Spending a little bit extra on your table linen, glassware, cutlery and crockery will ensure your wedding makes a statement and your guests feel pampered. Ensure every place where group photos will be taken, like in front of the bridal table, are well decorated. You can reuse some of the florals and decorations from your ceremony if you have a family member or wedding planner willing to transport them across.
