What to consider when decorating a wedding venue

Once you choose a wedding venue, it can be easy to write that area off as something that is done, and move on to the dress, the cake, the music etc.  However, choosing the wedding venue is only half of the process; you also have to consider how best to decorate the venue to fit in with the feel of your wedding.  There are a number of things to consider.

You need to consider everything within your wedding when looking at decorations; if you are having a rustic feel the decoration needs to fit in with that, as would it with a more traditional or formal wedding.  A venue as flexible as The Black Horse Inn can lend itself to any theme, and so by looking at the colors and the theme of the wedding, you can almost do what you like.  Aspects to consider including:

  • Table centers or decorations
  • Any chair accessories such as chair covers
  • Wall decorations such as balloons or banners
  • Place settings
  • Flowers

You don’t need all of these to decorate for your wedding; sometimes less is more, and you don’t need to be tied to convention.  Not all center pieces are flowers or balloons, people are having everything from sweet trees to candle arrangements.  Wall decorations don’t need to be wedding banners, they can be garlands or even homemade bunting.  Try looking at websites or what others have done for inspiration and don’t be afraid to think outside the box.  If you’re looking for the perfect wedding venue in Northern Virginia, give us a call today
