5 Wedding Decorations You Need for an Incomparably Breathtaking Wedding
As the saying goes, it’s all in the details. Details make the difference between what’s good and what’s unmistakably great, so what are the tiny, seemingly insignificant facets of wedding decoration that must be incorporated into your wedding to make it a visual masterpiece that’s forever imprinted in your minds?
Here’s what you need to add a touch of magic to your celebration:
1. A statement entrance
Regardless of your choice of venue, there will definitely be an entrance. Whether it’s a gate, church doors, or an open grass field, it’s important to not leave it plain. First impressions matter, and you’ll want to sweep everyone off their feet right from the get-go! Decorate your entrance with flowers, streamers, balloons, or fabric banners — let your creative juices flow.
2. A decorated aisle / Pew decorations
All eyes will be on you and your partner as you walk down the aisle together. Shutters will be snapping, and there’s no better way to frame the two of you than to have an exquisitely decorated aisle!
This can either be in the form of pew decorations or aisle decor such as scattered flower petals, flower vases, candles, or lanterns. This will also serve to connect your statement entrance to the main highlight of the venue, where you will both exchange your vows and seal your union.
3. A captivating focal point
A Personalised Portrait Backdrop
This needs no explanation — as the backdrop of the exchanging of vows and promises of a lifetime, decoration befitting of such a momentous and joyous milestone is required. Typically, most of your decoration budget for the venue should be poured in here since it’s the main focus of the day and the backdrop of almost every wedding photo with your guests.
There’s no right or wrong when it comes to decorating this bit as well. Some couples might prefer an ethereal wedding arch while others may opt for a dazzling stage; some might go for a minimalist, modern look while others may prefer a show-stopping, romantic set-up.
4. Inviting table settings
Most weddings feature vows, toasts, a cake, and flowers, but long after the wedding is over, it's the clever, personal details that your guests actually remember. Add a unique touch to your dinner table to let your guests know just how special each and everyone is to you and your partner!
Besides centerpieces, consider adding detailed menus and handcrafted, personalised seating placards. Keep in mind that these are also props for you to further elevate your wedding aesthetics — discuss with your stylist to see if you should opt for a complementing colour scheme and theme or if you’d like to try for intentionally contrasting colours and textures to add variety and layers to your wedding decor.
5. A photoworthy reception
The last essential wedding decoration that you must include is none other than the reception table. As the reception is usually where guests will mingle with one another for some time before the main event starts, it’s vital that you have a gorgeous reception table filled with eye-catching trinkets to entertain them while they wait!
Use this opportunity to show off your pre-wedding photographs, if any, or simply showcase snapshots of your journey together that you’ve previously taken. The reception table decor is also crucial in laying the groundwork for your wedding’s overall look and theme, so don’t scrimp on the props and wedding stationery.

Layer different textures, height, and types of props to give your table settings depth and character — think photo frames, wedding cards, acrylic frames, and of course, keep it functional for your guests, too. Would they need a pen to register and pen down their well wishes for the happy couple? What about a red packet box?
