To ensure that your wedding day is all that and more you will have to put in a lot of time and effort in the months preceding it. A number of plans have to be made, a number of decisions have to be taken. Deciding what your wedding décor will be is just one of them.

However, despite being just one of the very many nitty-gritty’s of the wedding your wedding decorations is an important subject so spend good time deciding exactly how it’s going to be. How you will decorate your wedding (that is the ceremony area and the reception hall) will depend on a lot of factors

a. The theme you will choose for wedding – Whether you choose to have a special theme wedding or not there will have to be a theme according to which you will be deciding your wedding décor. The wedding needs to reflect you and your spouse to be and at the same time echo the general mood of the day. Decide if you want a fun party wedding or a traditional ceremony first and then go ahead and choose your colors and decorations.

b. The time of your wedding – The time of the year that you choose to get married will always have a role to play in how you will decorate your wedding. Say for instance, an outdoor event in the winter months in say Chicago would not be a good idea. if you planning a garden arrangement would not be wise.

c. Site Wedding VS Idea Wedding – Simply put, a site wedding is one where the wedding décor is primarily dependant on the location of the wedding itself. So if you have managed to arrange your ceremony in a medieval castle or a yacht you can decorate it keeping in mind the locale and the ambiance of the wedding site. On a second thought if your wedding is to be in an otherwise non-descript area (like say your backyard) you can concentrate on a certain specific theme (or idea) to create a special atmosphere. This will be what is called an idea wedding. A Hawaiian beach party theme, a wild west theme or a Classical theme can turn any boring backyard into a partying hotspot.

d. Budget – Finally, the budget will determine exactly how you will or may not decorate your wedding. No point planning bouquets of imported flowers and swans and ice sculptures if you are on a low budget that doesn’t permit you anything more than a priest! Despite the way you choose to decorate your wedding, do make sure that the ceremony location and the reception hall reflect what is after all intrinsic to the event —– the lover’s union. Romance, if not anything else ought to be one of the basic requisites of all weddings, however they are done up. And if you can’t find any accessories to push up the romance quotient don’t worry about it wear that special look in your eyes that shines and says you are happy, that should do well enough.
