Did you know that the average wedding in the U.S. has 175 guests? And as many of us have experienced, there are certainly a good number of weddings that go well beyond this. There are many details that go into planning your big day. Most couples find it necessary to prepare for months and months ahead of time. One big aspect of planning a party checklist is the decor for the reception. Here are three things you should keep in mind for this aspect of your wedding day.
On the blog Wedding Tips, one woman shares the story of her sister’s would be wedding cake. It arrived the day of, with spider webs on it. It also fell in the van on the way to the wedding, and the driver tried to put it back together and pass it off as okay. They ended up going to a Publix and buying a birthday cake to use at the last minute. The lesson here? Look for reliable companies, and the cheapest offer isn’t always the best one. Your best bet is someone who has an established reputation in your local community.
Tips for Wedding Tent Rentals
Party tent rentals are a big part of every reception, and there are more options available than you might realize. Tents can have high ceilings or low ones, have open sides or closed ones, be rectangular or square, and more. Tents can help to establish the type of atmosphere you want during your reception, and planning the tent ahead of time is a good idea, because you want to get a sense for what type of decorations would fill the space best. One idea for a white tent is to have a much darker, translucent material used as an accent for covering poles and draping across the ceiling.
Although all white is a popular choice for wedding colors, many people like to coordinate their wedding reception with bright color combos. It’s a good idea to rent things like table linens, since you’ll probably never have much need for 200 purple linen napkins. Having someone come and set up your wedding linen rentals can also reduce the amount of tasks you need to worry about on the wedding day. According to Better Homes and Gardens, three popular wedding color schemes are orange and green, cranberry and bold pink, and light pink with brown.
