Whatever your wedding theme, here are a few wedding decoration ideas that are sure to inspire you to create a special day that you and your guests will cherish for many years to come. Planning for a wedding can be fraught with ups and downs. So many decisions that you have to make can seemingly pull you in every direction at once! One of the more fun aspects of planning a wedding is the decorating scheme and theme. Will your ceremony be a destination wedding on a white sand beach? Maybe you’re planning more of a traditional, classic ceremony.
Traditional weddings are still among the most popular of all wedding themes. There are many variations on this style, and each bride will have her own interpretation of what is traditional. White is a very traditional color for classic weddings and is used liberally. The brides dress, flower arrangements, cake and centerpieces are typically white in traditional weddings. White weddings can give the air of opulence and are elegant, classic and gorgeous. You can intersperse accent colors if an all-white wedding is too much. Pay particular attention to lighting, flowers and any accent decorations like bows or garlands. Deciding to have a traditional wedding, in today’s trend of modern ones, will be a decision you won’t regret.
Destination and beach weddings are surging in popularity. Once thought to be reserved for the rich or jetsetters, they're actually a rather affordable option. Many beachfront resorts offer all-inclusive wedding packages that take care of everything for one price. This eliminates a lot of the headaches that are associated with wedding planning. Another bonus is after the wedding; the couple is already at their honeymoon destination. Decorating for a beach wedding is simple. The focus is on incorporating natural elements such as sea stars, seashells and neutral colors. Since most beach or destination weddings are complete packages, be sure that whichever wedding you choose encompasses every detail you want.
Not every bride wants an elaborate wedding ceremony, but one thing is for certain, all brides want to feel like a princess on her wedding day. Some couples opt for a fairytale wedding to show the world their storybook love. Fairytale weddings are whimsical, fun and light-hearted. They evoke a feeling of fantasy and can range from elaborate ceremonies complete with horse drawn carriages to simple and natural forest weddings. Fairytale weddings are largely up to the bride (and maybe couple) to decide. If a bride wants a fairytale wedding that will sweep her off her feet, then there may be considerable expense. Try to delegate or plan a lot of the ceremony yourselves. This will save some money on necessities such as invitations, centerpieces and even location decoration. White tends to be the color of the day when it comes to fairytale weddings, but greens, blues and even iridescent colors can add a welcomed addition to fairytale weddings,
Nearly anything can go at a contemporary wedding. Bright wedding dresses, unconventional ceremonies and unique decorations make these weddings among the most memorable as well as trend setting. Contemporary weddings give the couple a wide variety of wedding themes to choose from. Contemporary is simply whatever is modern and trendsetting. Feathers, natural elements and minimalist decorations are extremely popular amongst the wedded-to-be as of late. More and more couples are eschewing traditional weddings in favor of a ceremony that speaks more about them. This is where personal taste reigns supreme. Unique, non-floral centerpieces, ice sculptures and gravity-defying cakes are the order of the day.
Few ceremonies are lovelier than an outdoor spring or summer wedding. Nature’s vibrant tapestry makes the perfect backdrop for your ceremony. The beauty of outdoor weddings is that they can be simple and very organic or elaborate and grand. Planning an outdoor ceremony can be a little more difficult than an indoor wedding. Guests and decorations will be out in the elements. Be sure to have a backup venue for guests should the weather turn foul. Make good use natural touches like any trees, shrubs, plants or flowers present on site. You don’t need a ton of decorations to make an outdoor wedding look nice. Work with what colors and elements are there naturally. Working within these confines will ensure that your ceremony looks well-coordinated and nothing looks out of place in the great outdoors.
As you can see, there are a lot of options for wedding decoration ideas. Once you have a theme for your wedding in mind, the rest all falls into place. A theme acts as a wonderful springboard for decorating ideas. Select your venue early and plan your wedding around that.
