Designing Your Wedding Venue

Wedding Venue

Designing a dream venue requires imagination and a knack for design. Some couples rent the empty space, while others bring the dream to life with an all-inclusive wedding venue. An all-inclusive wedding venue with professional wedding designers can make more sense for the design and the budget. Keep reading for the best tips for designing your wedding venue.

Ceremony Space in the Wedding Venue

The ceremony is the reason for everything you are planning, and requires a magical place to exchange vows and create the moment. The wedding arch and the backdrop will frame the bride and groom, and every photograph. Think about the season, colors and the blooms you want to use to design your space. Rose petals on the aisle are the perfect touch of romance. You should have a well defined aisle with chairs and décor. Depending on your theme and the atmosphere you want to achieve, you could line your aisle with lanterns, vases filled with floating candles or oversized candelabras. The easiest way to design your ceremony space is to plan with an all-inclusive venue with in-house wedding designers.

Staging Your Reception

The reception area is where you will celebrate. Guests will spend much of their time at their assigned seat. Every table should be an unforgettable part of the design and the experience. Whether you dare to create a dramatic effect or keep it simple, centerpieces and accent décor will create the look. The height of the centerpieces should always match the size of the tables. An empty table will look just as awkward as a crowded one. Flowers bring in color and texture while accenting décor. Flowers can be placed in vases, between candles, inside lanterns and used to create floral table runners. Planning with an all-inclusive wedding venue that includes the furnishings and décor can save you thousands on planning your wedding day.

Small Touches in the Wedding Venue

Decorative touches have purpose in your wedding venue. Table numbers usually consist of a paper in card stock that is folded to create a tent card and embellished with designs and a calligraphy number. These decorative signs have purpose. They will help your guests find their table. If your theme calls for it, you could name each table with a place, character or song, instead of a number. Place cards will designate seating for each guest. Menus can be tucked inside of the fold of a napkin for an elegant touch. Favors provide a keepsake for your guests. They can be placed above the plate or on the charger plate, depending on how you design the space. These fine details are part of the design.

Designing the Sweetheart Table

The sweetheart table is a special designated seating arrangement for the newlyweds. Since this is where you will dine, toast and sit for many photographs, it is important to keep this space clear for the view of the camera. Use high back throne chairs and design the table to set it apart from the rest in the room.
