Designing Your Wedding Venue

Wedding Venue

Your wedding venue should be designed to match the fairy tale you envision. Creating a magical venue requires a little imagination and talent to bring the vision to life. If you are planning to rent an empty space, you will have a lot more work in the plan. Renting an all-inclusive wedding venue with professional wedding designers makes more sense for the design and budget. Keep reading to discover tips for designing your wedding venue.

The Ceremony Space at Your Wedding Venue

Whether you choose one venue or different venues for the ceremony and reception, you will need to design the spaces separately. Every element of the design must be nothing less than perfect. You should have a well-defined aisle with chairs and décor. The theme and vision for the aesthetic you want to create will help you choose your colors, candles, flowers, vases and accents. You might define your aisle with lanterns, vases filled with floating candles or oversized candelabras. The wedding arch will provide a backdrop and frame the bride and groom during the ceremony. You should consider the season, colors, flowers and your theme when designing this space. The easiest and most affordable way to design your ceremony space is to plan with an all-inclusive wedding venue with in-house designers, furnishings and décor.

Designing the Reception

The reception area is where you will celebrate. Creating an unforgettable experience is what it is all about. Keep your theme in mind and let it flow from the ceremony space to the reception area. Your theme will help you choose your centerpieces and accent décor to 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 are important for every wedding. Flowers bring in color, add texture, and create dimension in the wedding venue. Planning with an all-inclusive venue with a floral design team can help you stage the space.

Accent Décor 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 locate their table. 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 designing your wedding venue.

Sweetheart Table

The sweetheart table is a special designated seating arrangement for the newlyweds. This is where you will dine, toast and sit for many wedding photographs. It is important to design this table differently than the rest.
