Tips for Designing Your Wedding Venue

Wedding Venue

Designing your wedding venue requires imagination and a little talent. If you are planning to rent an empty space, you will begin at ground zero with design. This option will require furnishings, décor and a wedding designer to bring the vision to life. Renting an all-inclusive wedding venue with professional wedding designers makes more sense for the design and the budget. Keep reading to discover tips for designing your wedding venue.

Ceremony Space in the Wedding Venue

The ceremony is the reason for it all. Every element of the design must be nothing less than perfect in this space. You should have a well-defined aisle with chairs and décor. Depending on your theme and the aesthetic you want to create, you might stage your aisle with lanterns, vases filled with floating candles and oversized candelabras. The wedding arch will provide a backdrop and frame the bride and groom during the ceremony. You should consider the season, colors, flowers and your theme when designing this space. The easiest way to design your ceremony space is to plan with an all-inclusive wedding venue with in-house designers, furnishings and décor.

Staging Your Reception Tables

The reception area is where you will celebrate. Every table should be designed and set for an unforgettable experience. Whether you dare to create a dramatic effect or keep it simple, centerpieces and accent décor will create the look. The height of the centerpieces should always match the size of the tables. An empty table will look just as awkward as a crowded one. Flowers are important for every wedding. Flowers bring in color, add texture, and create dimension in the wedding venue. Planning with an all-inclusive venue with a floral design team can help you stage the space.

Small Touches in the Wedding Venue

Decorative touches have purpose in your wedding venue. Table numbers usually consist of a paper in card stock that is folded to create a tent card and embellished with designs and a calligraphy number. These decorative signs have purpose. They will help your guests locate their table. Place cards will designate seating for each guest. Menus can be tucked inside of the fold of a napkin for an elegant touch. Favors provide a keepsake for your guests. They can be placed above the plate or on the charger plate, depending on how you design the space. These fine details are part of designing your wedding venue.

Designing the Sweetheart Table

The sweetheart table is a special designated seating arrangement for the newlyweds. This is where you will dine, toast and sit for many wedding photographs. It is important to design this table differently than the rest.
