Wedding Reception Decoration Ideas -Time To Get Organized

Apr 27, 2008
When decorating your wedding reception venue there are so many wedding reception decoration ideas available you will need to be organised and decide exactly what you want, need and can afford. Many people are aware when planning a wedding that time is always a factor and it is very easy to sit and day dream about wedding reception decoration ideas you know you cannot afford or seriously ever make happen.

Start by setting a budget so you know you will not overspend or get carried away. Also consider making your own wedding reception decorations as this can be far cheaper then purchasing from a high street store. That said, if you do decide to purchase from a store whether it be a local wedding store or online always ask if there are any special deals they can do. You may find that if you are buying decorations in bulk you could qualify for a discount.

It is also extremely important when ordering anything from the internet to ask for a sample to be sent first, although most things look wonderful in a picture, the last thing you want is to receive a hundred balloons that are the wrong shade of color to match your wedding theme.

Speaking of balloons, they are a really cost effective way of decorating a wedding venue. They come in all shapes and sizes and can also be personalized. Obviously bear in mind the more you customize the balloons the more expensive they will be.

Tea light candles are one of the most popular wedding reception decoration ideas especially for the evening. You can purchase these in bulk and at an extremely low cost. It is worth considering if your wedding reception will have many children attending due to the understandable danger.

Most brides would consider flowers to be one of the most important wedding reception decoration ideas. To cut the costs on flowers use the flowers that have been taken to the church for the ceremony or alternatively if you do want to choose different flowers for the reception stick with flowers that are in season and are plentiful as this will reflect on the cost immensely.

There are three main rules you should think about when considering your wedding reception decoration ideas

1- Consider what style and mood you want to achieve, is it romantic, sophisticated or casual.

2- Budget, always have a rough idea how much you are willing to spend on this part of the wedding. Remember if you plan your wedding reception decoration ideas carefully you may avoid unnecessary expenditure.

3- Have a plan of the venue, whether it be photos or a drawing so that you can visualize where you decorations will go and if they will look good.

Planning any aspect of a wedding can be extremely stressful so above all make sure you have plenty of time to look around.
