Designing Your Wedding Venue

Wedding Venue

Transforming your wedding venue into a dream setting is a thrilling aspect of planning your special day. This moment allows you to choose a theme, color palette, and decorative elements to bring your envisioned wedding to life. The layout of your wedding venue essentially comprises two areas: the ceremony and reception spaces, each further detailed by elements like lighting, furniture, floral pieces, and additional decorations. Infuse your wedding day with a touch of romance through these inspired ideas for venue design.

Designing the Ceremony Space at Your Wedding Venue

The ceremony area is where your fairy tale begins. If your vows aren't being exchanged at a traditional altar, consider crafting a bespoke wedding arch that complements the overall theme and aesthetic of your venue. This pivotal spot, where you and your partner will exchange vows, will be captured in your ceremony photos and serve as the backdrop for one of your most heartfelt moments. Wedding arches, available in various shapes and sizes, can be adorned with flowers and elegant drapes. The aisle should be a reflection of your theme, incorporating chairs and decorative elements. This can include borders made with lanterns, vases, candelabras, flowers, and chairs. The arrangement of chairs is crucial in defining your ceremony space. Adding chair sashes in your color theme can dramatically alter the room's atmosphere. Experiment with various ways to tie these sashes for unique effects. Lastly, scattering rose petals along your aisle adds a classic, romantic flourish to your ceremony setting.

Crafting the Reception Area

The reception area is where the celebration comes to life. Arrange tables thoughtfully to both highlight the dance floor and ensure the sweetheart table remains the centerpiece of the room. Select table linens that resonate with your theme's color palette. Adorn each table with a tablecloth, and introduce a pop of contrast and texture with a table runner. For added dimension, consider using an overlay. The table centerpieces are key in defining the ambiance of your wedding venue. To evoke a rustic theme, incorporate elements of nature like lanterns, flowers, and wood, creating an earthy feel. For a touch of elegance, opt for metal or glass vases, or candelabras. Completing the tables with softly glowing candles can add a romantic and intimate atmosphere.

Floral Selections for Your Wedding Venue

The choice of flowers for your wedding venue is largely influenced by the season and your chosen wedding colors. When selecting flowers, consider the size of your venue and the role you envision for floral arrangements. The quantity and type of flowers required will depend on your vision for the day. Typically, couples opt for florally adorned ceremony spaces, and flower centerpieces on tables. Options like rose petals lining the aisle, floral displays at the altar, and decorations on the cake and gift tables are popular. Each flower variety brings its unique color and fragrance, significantly influencing the ambiance. While selecting flowers, keep your wedding colors and theme in mind. Remember, there are no strict rules about seasonal flowers, but sourcing out-of-season blooms can be more costly and challenging.

Incorporating Lighting in Your Wedding Venue

Lighting is often an overlooked element in wedding planning, yet it plays a crucial role in enhancing and complementing the venue's colors and décor. For instance, a cherry blossom tree might seem ordinary without the right colored lighting to emphasize its form and hues. Uplighting can be strategically placed along walls to cast a soft glow on draperies and other decorative elements, adding depth and drama to your wedding setting.
