Can you think of anything more exciting than details & décor when it comes to weddings? I can’t!
Determining your Wedding Style
How do you get from your style to determining decor and other items that can bring out your style?
Let’s talk about some ways that you can get decor organized so well that, quite literally, anyone can set it up for you! It doesn’t matter if it is a team of professionals or just your close family and friends that don’t have an eye for decorating at all.
Let's chat about cake items really quickly. There are some "basics" you want to remember to think up, but bonus this is a PERFECT area to select items you can keep forever or skip the work all together and rent a complete set pre-designed from a local company like our friends and host's rental business: Honey Do Event Rentals.
This includes items such as: cake cutters, decor specific for the cake/dessert table, specialty drinkware for you two to toast, cake stands and a backdrop.
Let's not forget some of the most forgotten items for setting up decor!The main three? Scissors, safety pins, fishing line
As you're setting up, you want things to be as close to done as possible, but we know that you can’t light candles at noon when your guests aren’t arriving until 6 PM. The BEST thing you can do is to still have the candles ready. What that means is: Pull them out of their boxes, sit them in the vase they go in, with the wicks up (straight in the air) and ready to light.
Electronic candles or lights? No problem! Have them sat out next to the container that they go in so someone can just flip them on and pop them in quickly. Be sure they have batteries, any packaging is removed - and yes that means the tiny little plastic tabs they stick in the batteries to pull out before use.
Needing water in vases for flowers or floating candles? Go ahead and get the water ready to go!
Time: We cannot stress this enough - you need time!
Even a team of pros would need 1-2 hours to do tablescapes
Dishware: Caterers or rental companies normally require items to be scraped & rinsed. (Some even require them to come back washed, so make sure you check with the company). If you are in charge of these duties, you will want to hire someone to do that while you and your guests are dancing and celebrating. It takes a lot of time!
