Now i’m sure that Bride got the best intentions for the Decorating of her big day; nobody purposely makes a wedding ugly (not that I know of! ) So read on to ensure you do not make the mistakes that could make your wedding “one of those” weddings. wedding decoration ideas

Mistake you – A lot of Color

A wedding is supposed to be an elegant, advanced, “grown-up” affair and while a touch of color every now and then adds interest & jewelry all elements together, too much color or aiming to “match” everything will make wedding and reception look more like an adolescent girls birthday party then a complex wedding. 

Remember the saying “Less is more”. Try to remember this when thinking for wedding decorating ideas. Keep to natural colors and just use richer colors very sparingly as accents here & there.

Mistake 2 – Planning to Match Everything

You may will have to match the color of the bridesmaid’s dresses with the groomsman’s ties, or with the table cloths and so forth If you have a bright color for your bridesmaids, use a more subtle shade than it if you really must “match”.

I find really best to stick natural colors like whites, lotions, silvers, golds, browns, green (natural greens) and dark-colored. Choose 1 or 2 of the as your main colors for decorating with and use small features of your bridesmaids color. For example;

Cream napkins with a cream stand cloth with a dark or gold table athlete. Then use your theme color in ribbons as napkin holders at each place, or as exclusive and beautiful card for the place cards,
A Centerpiece idea is to use mainly cream flowers and trees with one or 2 of your theme coloured flowers.
Use all white linen with a green table runner and if you have purple bridesmaid a peacock feather or other purple flower as the centerpiece (purple & green are great together)
Use all white sheets and pillowcases with a Black Stand runner and Mirrors available with a vase sitting down on it with white flowers and black down – very Hollywood glamor and definitely will go with any bridesmaid color
If you must use a dazzling color and match it – try to make white or cream the key color and the well lit color simply a touch every now and then will look very elegant.
Yet , if you have a very large, empty or bland room as your reception room then you can certainly get away with a little more color. A suggestion is to stand in the room without adornments and decide if it is boring, busy, or average. If it’s drab – yield the accessories to add interest. In the event that its busy, use all white or all cream with only one light brown or light yellow metal color sparingly to build down the room and if its average, then follow my above advice.

Feel free to inform me if you have any questions about your ideas, I’d be happy to give you my opinion!

Mistake 3 – Too Many False Components

Silk flowers and pretend that plants are an inexpensive way to add interest to your reception room, however be sure to can’t notify they are false (unless you touch them). In the event that you can’t afford blossoms otherwise you centerpiece it’s probably better to just not use them rather than use silk or plastic (please – do not use plastic). Some centerpiece ideas for weddings are;

Candle lights are fantastic & relatively cheap from thrift or 2 dollar stores. Acquire enough for 3, each of different heights for every single table. Then buy a pretty plate (from a second hand store) or piece of mirror or glass for them all to lay on and there you have it, a pretty, cheap centerpiece.
Down can be considered a great addition to a centerpiece. Depending on your color structure, you can use peacock feathers or you can buy large feathers which have been died to just about any color from most craft stores.
Or you can make your own floral table decorations rather than by using a florist. Get enough tall vases for 1 per table. (you actually can hire them but it can sometimes be cheaper to buy them from thrift or 2 dollar stores) Then get your most trusted grandmother or friend who is not in the wedding party to venture to a florist on a period of time of your wedding and buy some long white Lily’s or any type of other large tall white strong stemmed flower. Get enough for 3 per table (do not tell the florist they are for a wedding because they will double or triple the price! ) use these Lily’s with one or 2 long colored down and some tall straw-plaited (wicker can be bought from craft stores or florists). Then wrap a wide Black, White or Cream ribbon about the top of the vase for an enhancing yet inexpensive focal point.
