After going through the wedding process just recently, I was blown away by how many decisions there are! Even though I had photographed weddings the past 5 years, I learned a lot about the planning process, and how to choose the perfect wedding décor!
When it came to choosing décor, I made a decision that was SO helpful. I decided to go simple. While it’s easy to want everything you’ve ever pinned on your wedding Pinterest board (because every bride has one), choosing just your absolute favorite décor pieces will allow them to stand out, and not get lost in the business.
Not only is this more appealing to the eye, but it can help as you budget for your wedding day. Investing in a few nicer pieces goes farther than several pieces you don’t love that don’t quite match your vision and style for the wedding day!
To start, choose the largest pieces of décor for your wedding! What large centerpieces do you prefer on the tables (or a few of the tables)? Make sure these match your wedding day style and theme!
After this, choose a few accent items to go around the large items, and fill in the spaces! These should complement the larger items. Since you’ve already invested in the larger items, you’ll know how much is left in your budget to invest in the accent pieces. These can go on the food tables, guest book table, smaller cocktail tables, and around the larger pieces of décor. A few different accent items will mix things up and carry the theme of your wedding!
And lastly, have your florist spruce things up even more by adding greenery and flowers that match your florals for the day around the accent and large pieces of décor! Your day will truly be completely tied together from start to finish! The style will be showcased, and you’ll be thrilled with how your hard work in selecting your décor and florals to match your style will look all together!
I’m so grateful Quick Candles was there to help as I chose my items. Because of the ease of working with them, my beautiful, simple, elegant wedding theme was carried through the entire wedding day.
