Wedding Reception Hall Decoration Tips

You will spend most of your planning time on reception and reception decorating, that’s where all the celebrating occurs.  So where do you begin?

1) Select a theme.  When you choose a theme, it allows you to narrow down your decorating scheme.  Themes could be a color you love, or repleting a place you have been too.

2)  Evaluate your reception space.  Find out where the reception manager normally sets up the tables.  Can you changes this or does it work well for you?  Where can the band or DJ set their stage?  Can you move anything around to better suit your needs?

3)  Work within your budget.  You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars to achieve an elegant look for your reception hall.  Most reception venues will have a selection of decorating that can be used, some may even be FREE so ask!  Start shopping early, for those cost steals.

4) You will want to get a lot of ideas for the decorations, so you’ll need to do some research. Bridal magazines and the internet are great areas to start your research.

5)  Express your personality through the decorations.  A truely successful wedding is a wedding that is an extension of the couple.  This may help you select your theme!

    Good Morning,
    I am currently planning an event in support of breast cancer research for the Canadian Cancer Society. We are looking for decorators who would be able to transform the upper rooms of the Prince Arthur Waterfront Hotel into a more intimate event setting for our Grand Dessert and Silent Auction on Dec. 3, 2009. If you had any ideas which companies would be willing to do this at a reduced cost (as we are a not-for-profit organization) that would be wonderful.
