So you’re getting married; congratulations! Now it’s time to start planning the details of your big day whether it be the perfect wedding cake, wedding photographer, wedding flowers and most importantly…the wedding dress! However, one major decision you’ll have to make is how to decorate your wedding venue.

There are so many wedding decor options available and it can be difficult to know where to start. But luckily, that’s why we’ve put together this guide on wedding decorating tips to make it a little easier for you to plan your special day! We will help you choose the perfect decorations and advise you on important things to consider for your dream wedding so you can create the perfect wedding decor!

What are wedding decorations?

When it comes to wedding decorations, there’s lots to consider with potential wedding packages as well as thinking about how much you want to spend, whether this be a few hundred pounds or more money than anticipated. But fear not, we’re here to help you with some advice and inspiration to make this task a little lighter.

Let’s begin with the ceremony. You may want to think about how you are going to create a memorable atmosphere for your guests to take pictures or to admire whilst waiting for the ceremony to begin. Flowers are a very popular choice for wedding decor as they add colour and character to any indoor venue styling. Think about incorporating some flowers as aisle decorations to give the service a natural feel, or even to the wedding cake and centrepieces in the wedding reception!

But the wedding decorations are not only about flowers! You also want to think about the intimate details so your guests can see the effort and time you have put into your special day! Think about the style direction you want to take with the furniture, lighting, table setting, candles, even the table numbers! Try to keep your budget in mind and think of ways you can save money with smaller decorations so you can spend money on more intimate occasions with your guests, for example at the wedding breakfast or the reception.

Why is hiring a wedding decorator important?

If you are tight for time or have a lot on your plate, then hiring a wedding decorator may be something to consider! A wedding decorator can help bring your own wedding ideas to life, as well as advising you on how to make the most out of your budget. With their vast experience arranging weddings, a wedding decorator will be able to organise meetings with potential venues, caterers, and deciding how your costs can be evenly spread.

Are wedding decorators expensive?

The fees for a wedding decorator may vary depending on their hourly rate, however a top tip is to do your research and see how your budget can fit into hiring a professional. Try and see what work they have done in the past, and talk to previous clients to see if they are the right fit!
