Wedding planning can simultaneously be the most fun part of the wedding process, or it can be the most stressful. Figuring out your caterer, DJ, dress, wedding party and all the other aspects of the wedding can be pretty difficult, but choosing your decorations can be even worse.
There are so many different options when it comes to decorations and so much inspiration online. This can make it difficult to decide what exactly you want and what matches the aesthetic or vibe you are going for.
Choose a flexible color palette
Your wedding colors are a super important decision when it comes to decoration. This is because almost everything you choose is based on those colors. Most of the time a couple will choose their specific colors and try to base everything off of those incredibly specific colors, which can be very hard.
An easier way to go about this is by choosing a sort of palette instead of individual colors. For example, you can choose a neutral theme. This will give you the opportunity to have a couple “focus colors” without worrying about everything matching perfectly. It will keep things cohesive, but won’t stress you out when trying to pick things out. The Club at Indian Creek can make almost any color palette work, but be sure to check out your venue to see what you think would look best in that space.
Consider your guests
When trying to pick out your wedding decorations, especially for the reception, it can be helpful to remember who will be attending. This includes the number of guests as well as what age groups will be in attendance.
If you are having a pretty large amount of guests, it might be best to use less large decorations that take up space. You want your guests to have enough room to move around, dance and socialize. Putting a few larger floor decorations up by the stage might be the perfect way to incorporate your floor decorations.
Another thing to consider when thinking about your guest list is what age of guests will be in attendance. If your wedding is allowing for children, that is something to consider as well. Try not to choose decorations that are fragile or easily broken if kids get bored and mess with the decorations. If you are having a certain area of your reception dedicated to the kids, choose more appropriate decorations that you do not need to worry about being broken.
You want your wedding to feel cohesive and unforced. A great way to make the decorations feel natural and like they belong together is to combine different textures into your decor. An example would be for your centerpieces. You can combine several different elements to create a minimal, yet elegant look. Combine a few long stem flowers into a vase with water and floating candles. These three textures are very simple, but work together well to create cohesive pieces will still keep things interesting. Check with us at Indian Creek or your venue to be sure that they allow for all of the specific elements you are looking to use like candles and other decors you might have in mind.
A common trend in the past few years is to hang things from the ceiling. A great way to join in on that is by hanging some flowers from the ceiling. This creates a space that makes you feel like you are surrounded by nature, even when you are not. Consider trying this trend if you are looking to transform your space into a fairy wonderland.
Choosing your wedding decor is a fun way to get you and your partner thinking about your special day in a fun way. Choosing colors and elements that are cohesive and fit well together can help you pick out the perfect vibe that fits both of you so well.
