6 Ways to Create a Beautiful Wedding Reception

6 ways to create a beautiful wedding reception

Trying to create a beautiful wedding reception isn’t always easy. By following these six professional decorating tips, you’re sure to have a stunning, and beautiful wedding you’ve always dreamed of:


You can truly create a magical, and romantic wedding reception experience by adding your own decorative lighting. You can work with the existing lighting and look for ways to incorporate more personalized designs using garland, ribbon, and tissue. There may also be a way to hang temporary lights such as chandeliers or lanterns.

Another great idea is to incorporate candelabras throughout the room rather than just having smaller candles spread across the tables. This will give your wedding reception a classic, romantic feel your guests will love. You may also want to consider using uplighting solutions, as well as interesting floor lamps and table lamps to add a different mood throughout the area. Either way, playing with the lighting is a great way to make your wedding reception more memorable.

Large Flowers and Trees

You may have recently noticed that centrepieces are becoming larger in size, and feature some unique, large flowers and tree branches. These pieces can give your reception a whimsical charm that your guests have never experienced. Birch tree stumps paired with candles and colourful flowers can add a lovely design element when lit with fairy lights. Palm trees can also be used for a more tropical feel.

Trees and larger planters can bring a real fullness to your decor and sometimes renting larger items can prove to be more affordable than trying to fill a large space with hundreds of smaller plants and flowers.


You can always consider turning your wedding into a large romantic tent using draping. You can focus either on the ceiling above the dance floor or the make the focal point at the head table to draw in the entire room.

Special Areas

You can create special areas such as a bar and lounge for a quiet space for people to sit and chat complete with large, rented lounging furniture and big comfy cushions in elegant fabric.

Unique Linen

Your wedding venue will provide linen but you can also provide your own overlays of interesting and colourful fabric to add impact and carry over your colour scheme with more personality and flair.

Glass, Mirrors and Metal

Bring in more sparkle by adding additional glassware, hanging and leaning mirrors against walls and adding more metal in gold or silver.

Enhancing the features of your wedding venue will make the space your own for a truly beautiful and memorable wedding reception.
