Tips For Creating An Elegant Wedding Reception

Add More Lighting- adding more lighting including LED lights, pink up-lights, lanterns or innovative light displays is an easy to way to take your reception to the next level and add a luxurious look.

Details, Details- don’t forget about the details as this will really make your reception stand out and give it that polished look! This includes everything from your sign-in book, to your cake cutting utensils.

Drape the Room- adding organza or tulle fabric to the walls and ceiling can make the reception space more personalised to your theme and add a touch of elegance.

Add Colourful Tablecloths- tablecloths that complement your theme can make  your reception look more polished and give it an upscale look. Choose ivory or black tablecloths and be sure they are made of a high quality material.

Choose A Theme- rather than having a mix of design themes that don’t really go together, choose a theme and use that theme to decorate your reception space. This can give your wedding reception a custom tailored look that is stylish and simple.

Add Candles- adding candles to your centerpieces will set the mood for your event and give off a soft, flickering glow that is classy and functional. Be careful not to add candles to the children’s tables as this could be dangerous. Use LED candles instead. Combine pillar candles, tealights and votives to add a unique depth to this look.

Wedding Chair Covers- wedding chair covers can make your wedding reception seem more like a Royal Ball and they come in a wide range of colours to match or complement your design theme.

Wrap the Columns- using fabrics such as tulle and organza, you can cover up your venue’s tent poles or columns making them more beautiful. Add strings of LED lights throughout the fabric for an even more interesting look that will sparkle and shine!
