The Wedding Planner: Essential Wedding Ceremony Decorations
Once you’ve scheduled your dream wedding venue, it’s time to start decorating every element. When you plan your own wedding, you have complete creative control. However, there are elements that are universal in almost every wedding. Let’s start at the beginning and look at the essential wedding ceremony decorations.
A wedding can be broken into three acts, the ceremony, the dinner, and the party. Sometimes, couples choose to do a prelude to the ceremony with a little cocktail set-up, but for now, let’s focus on the ceremony. The ceremony will set the tone for the rest of your wedding, but there are also practical elements, as well as, decorative elements.
PRACTICAL CEREMONY ESSENTIALS
You may have picked a master of ceremony who will help greet and direct your guests through your three act wedding. However, having a sign with simple instructions or a simple message of love for your guests will set your ceremony off on the right note.
If you plan on having a program for your guests, have a little cocktail table or another type of table set up at the entrance to the ceremony area. Place your programs or other materials that your guests will need for the ceremony here.
You also need aisles of matching chairs in the style that matches your wedding theme. Renting chairs from Colorado Party Rentals gives you almost unlimited style options to complete your vision of the perfect ceremony. You can be casual, formal, rustic, modern, fun, funky, or traditional. Depending on how many guests you have, the chairs are going to take up most of the space at your ceremony, so choose your chairs wisely.
Besides seating for your guests, you need an aisle runner or something to mark the aisle and make it a focal point. You can create an aisle with an aisle runner, or you can add romantic and decorative markers to create an aisle effect. Using candles and flowers is a very effective tool.
The main focal point of your reception area is going to be the ceremony arch. You can build your own arch frame and decorate it however you want. You can hide the frame with flowers, decorations, and flowy drapery, or you can choose an arch that has some decorative appeal. For a rustic, woodsy wedding we have ceremony arches in Birchwood, pine, and lodgepole. We also have a white lattice arch that is perfect for a spring garden wedding. Of course, we also have the white canopy ceremony arch fit for a fairytale wedding.
Decorative ceremony essentials
Candle holders and vases
To decorate your practical elements, like the ceremony arch, the aisle, and the chairs, get all the romantic wedding decorations to give your wedding ceremony the final decorative touch, like candle holders in all shapes and sizes, as well as, vases for floral decorations.
Lighting will add ambiance and warmth to your ceremony. The lighting you choose for the ceremony can also be repeated at the following reception so that there is cohesion. Sprinkle a little romance all over your ceremony with romantic and intimate string lights, mixed with live candles.
