Thinking of sprucing up your wedding reception venue? Here are a few fun ideas to improve your wedding décor and let your awaited celebration be the talk of town!
Drapes give the wedding reception a romantic and dreamy ambiance. Draping can transform your dream wedding venue from ordinary to extraordinary. Common types of draping include ceiling draping, sails, wall draping and table draping.
As cute and pretty as they are, and reminiscent of childhood days, tie ribbons are perfect when placed strategically at your wedding reception. They can be used in place of/ or together with seat covers, on the tent poles or at the entrance.
3. Patterned pillows and colored fabrics
More and more brides are getting creative by using patterned and colored pillows and fabrics such as Damask designs, velvet and Kitenge African designs in their wedding reception venues. This allows for a customized wedding that is fun and suites the bride’s taste.
To create an idealistic and dreamy wedding ambiance, incorporate candles as centerpieces. You can place candles around flowers and along the path for a dusk-evening wedding. They automatically lift the mood to signal romance and classic ambiance.
5. Water features
Want to really wow your guests? Think of placing a water fountain or an ice sculpture of the bride and groom at the wedding reception. You can also get monograms of the bridal couple’s initials and place them at the venue. Place these features at the center, near the dance floor or at the entrance to bring out the wow effect.
6. Custom Lighting
Love color? Want a beach wedding in the heart of the City? Custom Lighting allows you to have the wedding of your dreams in whatever wedding reception venue you choose. They are an amazing way to bring life to a simple reception venue.
7. Hay Bales, Fireworks and Bonfire
For an extraordinary and memorable wedding reception, use hay bales as the seats instead of the traditional plastic seats which are commonly used in Kenyan weddings. Cover the hay bales with warm blankets to give your guests extra comfort. Hay Bales make an outdoor wedding reception more rustic and fun to be in. You can light up the venue with fireworks and a bonfire especially if it is a late evening reception.
Crystal clear crockery and vases together with silver accents give your wedding reception a magical feel. This posh decor symbolizes elegance and wealth in your wedding.
Using your wedding menu to decorate the venue can be fun and very exciting. Think of replacing the flower centerpieces with bowls of food. You can also give guests seasonal fruits as wedding favors. You can decorate the wedding reception using a magnificent chocolate fountain with fresh fruits such as strawberries, raspberries and blackberries.
