5 Ideas That Will Transform Your Reception Venue

Hang string lights


You can hang them over the reception or wrap them around trees or pillars to create an enchanted feel. And lighting does not only involve string lights you could also use the warm glow of lanterns to light up your venue. No matter how uninspiring your venue may be, these lights will create a feeling of elegance and magic. 

Drape your space

For a unique twist on the usual drapes, consider hanging the drapes diagonally over your wedding venue or from the centre of the ceiling to the edges. You can also hang drapes vertically from a very high wall to create a dramatic look and add depth to your setup. Or hang lots of white drapes from the centre to the edges for a dramatic look.

Unexpected floral arrangements

Your guests will be expecting flowers on your tablescape and along the aisle but hanging from the ceiling? They won’t see that coming! Use floral chandeliers to add interest to your space either by hanging flower balls from the ceiling or arranging the flowers around a metal chandelier hang over the reception. Another stunning option would be to string flowers together like a garland and hang them from the tent ceiling; quirky, fun and gorgeous! 

Hire chairs that make a statement

White Chiavari chairs

Your guests will certainly notice the design and quality of your chairs so take this opportunity to make a statement. If you are going for an elegant look, chiavari chairs never disappoint. They come in either white, gold, silver, black or clear (ghost) design. With a wide range of seat options available, you should be able to find an option that works for you.

Highlight a theme

Be intentional by going for a particular theme throughout the wedding. Not only is it a fun way to display your personality and preferences but it also creates a cohesive look. Tying all the stunning details together. All it takes is a creative theme to transform an otherwise ordinary space.
