Hosting a large wedding is a huge responsibility. And if you are planning an outdoor wedding or reception, then you will need to rent a variety of practical necessities and decorations if you want to plan a truly memorable event. You’ll need a rental tent, accessories for tents, chairs, tables, linens, a dance floor, and on and on. While this can feel overwhelming at first, when you rent a tent and all of accessories to go along with it, you will be free to focus on the more exciting aspects of wedding planning.
For instance, wedding decorations are what makes a dream wedding a reality. Even though this can get overwhelming as well, there is only one simple guideline for wedding decorations to follow: Choose three major colors as the color scheme of your wedding. Use a mixture of these colors for all of your decorations.
But what decorations should you use?
Picking out napkins can seem silly, but they really bring out the contrast in the setting of reception dinner tables.
A nice elegant glass or ceramic plate should be simple and not overly expensive. Keep the silverware simple and avoid an overly flashy table setting.
A well designed name card can make your guests feel special and honored, and they can even keep these cards as a souvenir. Gold embossed lettering over an eggshell white paper subtly suggests class and refinement.
While there are many options for wedding decorations, decorative lighting has been a top wedding trend in recent years. Fairy lights are an especially popular atmospheric lighting option, but this is one area where you can really get creative.
Who doesn’t like balloons? Since childhood when you enjoyed birthday parties with all of your friends, you have always associated balloons with celebration. Your wedding is a wonderful moment to celebrate, so consider complex arrangements of balloons.
No wedding is complete without flowers! Design the centerpieces at every table to revolve around your color scheme, but beware! Since your wedding is outdoors, bees might be attracted to your beautiful bouquets.
Hang flowing fabric along the outside of the tent. This will liven it up with a splash of your desired colors.
When deciding on your wedding decorations, always stick to a color scheme. This will make everything match, and you’ll have a lot less to think about. If you need a tent or table cloths that match your color scheme, consider renting to save even more time and money.
