wedding reception decorations

Decorating at the reception isn't always so easy. Perhaps you have extravagant taste or a more subtle style, whatever it is we will leave you with more than a few decoration ideas and tips.

Traditional
You can bring traditional decorations up to date with a new twist. Why not employ a clever balloon artist that can create really unique and modern displays in your wedding colours. A very traditional yet effective decoration is the classic drape; add these to your reception and you can be sure of creating the effect of real drama. You can even decorate the plainest chair with material ribbons and fabric bows to make them work as part of the whole room decoration.

Fun
Why not add a bit of bling to your wedding reception by hanging strings of faux crystals down the walls. Another way decorate your reception and make the whole day feel more complete is to have a ice sculpture that also doubles up as a way to serve your guests with a shot of liqueur. Very dramatic and great fun. Along the same lines is a chocolate fountain.

Budget
If you don't have a huge budget, get creative with your table decorations. A simple yet effective solution is spray painted twigs in a vase with coloured pebbles. Napkins are a great way to add drama and decoration to your tables; for this reason it might be worth paying out for starched cloth napkins and getting creative with your folding.

Photo Art
A great way to decorate and personalise the wedding reception is to put up photos of both families. Think wedding nostalgia and put up black and white wedding photos from generations that have gone before.

Lighting
Lighting can be very effective if it is well thought out. Good ideas for a wedding reception include a fairy light ceiling to give a starlight feeling or you could add fade in and fade out lights or coloured mood lights for a subtle look.
