Wedding Decorations Made Easy

Your wedding day is without a doubt the most important and special day of your life. You want it to be as beautiful and perfect as it possibly can be. Part of that beauty and perfection will come from the decorations that you choose for your special day. For some brides and grooms for that matter, this can be one of the biggest stressors when it comes to planning a wedding. The truth is however, it doesn't have to be. There are several things you can do to keep this task from becoming overwhelming. Here are some ideas to keep in mind when choosing your wedding decorations so that this task becomes easier for you and your beloved.

  1. Consider the location of your wedding. For example if you are getting married outdoors there will probably already be plants and trees close by. You may want to add a few festive decorations that fit the theme and colors for your wedding to trees that are close, but beyond that you may not need to do much else. Or maybe you're getting married on the beach. If you are going for a Hawaiian theme, then all you may need to add are a potted palm tree or two, and a few tikki torches to set just the right tone. Of course indoors will be different, but even indoor wedding decorations don't have to be difficult. You can choose clear bowls with floating candles that match your wedding colors for example, and a few wall decorations along with the flowers you've probably already picked out, or will be picking out soon.
  2. Consider the time of year you are having your wedding. While summer weddings are very popular, some people do get married in the Winter, Fall and Spring as well. Getting married in the fall means you could choose cheerful gold and red leaves for some of your decorations, or even have a cornucopia on a table brimming with fruit (it doesn't have to be real fruit!) for example. Winter weddings could have blues and whites for the colors and maybe glass or ice sculptures for tables to name a few.
  3. If you decide to be married on or around a holiday, the question of what decorations to use for your wedding may be solved. Getting married on or just before Christmas means you may be able to use decorations you already have or can easily purchase. The closer to Christmas it gets, the lower the cost for lights, Poinsetta plants and various other decorations become. Valentines Day is the day that many couples choose to get married, and of course would be one of the easiest to both purchase and maybe even create your own decorations for your wedding. Since red and pink are both colors that many couples choose for their wedding colors this makes getting decorations even easier if you get married around Valentines Day.
  4. You should also think about the theme of your wedding when considering what decorations to use. Maybe you've chosen a Western theme as one of my cousins did. You could have a wall hanging or two with horses, or of a cowboy or cowgirl for example. Maybe you've decided you want a Hawaiian theme. Even if your wedding is indoors you can still use tropical flower arrangements, potted palms and maybe even have unlit tikki torches, or native Hawaiian statues to name a few decorations. Many times as holidays do, themes can help you to choose the best decorations.

Keeping these four things in mind when deciding on the decorations for your wedding will help to make your choices easier. Also it will help the planning of your wedding to be more stress free!
