DECORATIONS AND FLOW­ERS

Plan­ning is the key to your dream wed­ding day

Mackay and Whitsundays Wedding Guide - - Contents -

WHEN de­cid­ing on a theme for your wed­ding, the first thing to do is cre­ate a clear vi­sion of what you want for your day.

Whether you en­vi­sion an out­door reception un­der the stars, or a for­mal ban­quet fit for roy­alty, it s good to think about what you want early.

While it can be fun to cre­ate wed­ding decorations your­self, there are places you can hire decorations from. Event hire com­pa­nies and some venues of­fer items such as place-card hold­ers, props, light­ing, cut­lery, funky seating and photo booths. Go­ing with this op­tion could mean less stress for you.

If you are go­ing down the DIY path there are many web­sites and so­cial me­dia pages where you can sell off your cre­ations af­ter your big day.

If you are plac­ing flow­ers around the venue, it can be a good idea to match those with the bride’s bou­quet.

Choos­ing a wed­ding theme

Things to con­sider:

What have you al­ways pic­tured your wed­ding to look like? Many brides have an idea of what they want their wed­ding to look like, so base any decorations on that.

What will work at your venue? Think about your venue. Is your venue in­side or out­side? Do the decorations you have in mind match the venue? Could they blow away in the wind?

Choos­ing the bou­quet

When se­lect­ing your bou­quet and flow­ers ask your­self: :: Will it go with your dress? :: Will it be heavy? :: How will you carry your bou­quet? :: Will it be easy to han­dle and pass to your brides­maids? :: Will it hide de­tail on your dress? :: Speak with your florist about what is in sea­son and what works best for you.
