Designing the Wedding Venue

Wedding Venue

Creating the dream wedding begins with a dream space. Whether you are renting the empty space or an all-inclusive dream, we have a few tips to create the fairy tale you imagine. Wedding planners and designers share the secret to designing your dream wedding venue.

Ceremony Space in the Wedding Venue

The ceremony space is the magical location in the wedding venue where you will walk the aisle, speak your vows and participate in important rituals. The wedding arch and the backdrop will frame the moment. Designing the ceremony space will require that you think about the season, colors and the blooms you want to use. Rose petals on the aisle are the perfect touch of romance. You should have a well-defined aisle with decorated chairs and dramatic décor. Depending on your theme and the atmosphere you want to create, you could line your aisle with lanterns, vases or oversized candelabras. Chair sashes create elegant seating arrangements. The wedding arch is the most important, and should be decorated with that in mind.

Staging Your Reception Tables

The reception area in the wedding venue is the space for the grand celebration. This space should be designed to match your theme and colors. Whether you dare to create a dramatic effect or keep it simple, centerpieces can help you achieve the look you want. The height of the centerpieces should always match the size of the tables. An empty table will look just as awkward as a crowded one. Flowers bring in color, add texture and are one of the best ways to accent your décor. Flowers can be placed in vases, between candles, inside of lanterns and in table runners.

Designing the Sweetheart Table

Traditionally, couples sit with the wedding party at a head table; however, many couples choose a sweetheart table. The sweetheart table is a special designated seating arrangement for the newlyweds. Since this is where you will dine, toast and sit for many photographs, it is important to keep this space clear for the view of the camera. Use high back throne chairs and a rectangular table to set this special seating apart from the rest in the room. It is very important to follow the theme and decorate this space elaborately, while avoiding large centerpieces that will block the view of the bride and groom.

Setting the Tables in the Wedding Venue

Setting the tables in the wedding venue requires décor, linens, chair sashes, table cards and chinaware. Coordinate your chair sashes to match the table linens. The table runner should always contrast a tablecloth. The charger plate should contrast the table and linens. Choose a napkin ring to match the charger plate and theme. You might choose a wooden charger plate with a wooden napkin ring for a rustic wedding or a silver or gold charger plate with a matching napkin ring for a more elegant look. Chinaware is part of the décor. Every table should be set to perfection.

Cloud Effects

Couples are looking for ways to create dramatic wedding photography moments. Cloud effects create lasting impressions with a low-lying blanket of fog that covers the floor and gives the illusion of dancing on clouds. This is perfect for the first dance.
