Wedding Reception Decoration Ideas

Are you seeking some inspired wedding reception decoration ideas?

When you're getting ready for your wedding, you've got a lot of things to consider. Let's take a minute to look into your wedding reception.

Do you have a place booked? If you do, you're a step ahead. Once you've got a venue booked for your reception, you need to ask a few specific questions.

Does the facility provide decorations (as many do), and if they do not, what limitations or rules are there regarding putting your own decorations up? You'll need to see if they allow things such as candles, or if certain items can be taped or stapled to the walls. Once you know your parameters, you can go on and start thinking about wedding reception decoration ideas.

A great idea to start with is some kind of an arch for the couple to walk through when they get to the reception and make their grand entrance. You can usually buy these arches, make them yourself, or many places that commonly book wedding receptions have an arch that can be used. You'll want to intertwine some tulle that matches the theme or colors of your wedding, as well as some flowers and possibly ivy, as well. This arch can symbolize walking in as the new Mr and Mrs that you truly are!

What other wedding reception decoration ideas are there?

Something you'll use throughout decorating your wedding and reception is a specialized mesh fabric known as tulle. At your reception, you can use this to decorate the open end of the head table, draping it gracefully across the table and taping or stapling it to the table cloth. Wherever you have to use an adhesive (staple or tape), place a small bunch of flowers that match your bouquet to cover the area.

Another great tool for wedding reception decoration ideas is artificial ivy. This can be used as part of table centerpieces, wall art, etc. Invest on some of this, and buy as much as you can. Remember that when you're through with it, if you take care of it when you tear-down your reception, you will be able to give it or sell it to someone else getting married.

A lovely and elegant decoration to put behind the head table, as a backdrop, is a "waterfall". You'll need to have the platform for it built prior to the day of the ceremony, and this can be done with PVC piping. It needs to be about seven to eight feet tall, and will be made by connecting two side pieces with three or four horizontal pieces of piping.

For images of this wedding reception decoration idea, search for this item on the internet. You'll need to purchase blue-colored tulle and blue icicle lights. Drape the lights across each of the horizontal rows, and set the lights to the "slow chase" setting (this will look like a trickle on your waterfall). Cover with the blue tulle and you've got a beautiful backdrop for the bride and groom's head table.

These are just a few wedding reception decoration ideas that you can use for your own party. Good luck - it's sure to be a beautiful occasion!
