Hi, we're having our wedding August 2018 and we're planning on having a civil ceremony and reception at the same venue. Does anyone have some time saving and cost effective decorating tips as there's a one hour window for rearranging chairs and setting tables. The venue will doing the set up of the room with the tables, chairs, crockery, cutlery and glasses but we're responsible for the décor. We have not factored in a professional to do this and hope to have relatives help. Also, it's going to be at a Botanical Garden and I'm toying with the idea of realistic looking silk flowers rather than real ones but I'm worried it would look weird in such a setting? Am I being worried for no reason?
Hi we are having the same but we don't have to worry about decorating our venue as a few weeks ago we won a charity auction and the company will be doing all the decs :)
Congrats Lucy. That's lucky. I've not ever won anything of significance yet. :)
I'm having ceremony and reception in same venue but they are in different rooms and thankfully the venue set up. Could you enlist your bridesmaids and grooms men to help out? Maybe some lanterns and t lights would be really easy to put out and flowers in mason jars if you used them down the aisle you could pick them up after and place on tables? X
I am having the ceremony in different rooms in the venue so only the chairs need to move. Have a look on second hand websites as there are some really nice centre pieces x
Have a look on pinterest for ideas they are great for them things, look for
DIY wedding decor! will help
Keep it simple, so its easier to set up. Fake flowers will be easier to set up and obviously wont wilton a hot day. Enlist your bridesmaids and grooms men. They are there to help. Does the venue not have a wedding co-ordinator? They should be able to help to. X
