Before shopping for your wedding decorations, it’s important to first understand what your wedding venue offers. For instance, does the venue offer mood lighting? Does it feature pillars that require dressing up? As such, it’s important to have a chat with the wedding coordinator/planner before actually purchasing the decorations.
Tying the Theme Together

From old-school glamour to minimalistic to funky modern, there is a wide array of themes for you to choose from. You could even opt for a Disney-inspired wedding (as long as both parties are agreeable).
It may be surprising, but the theme does not actually determine the colour palette of your wedding. Instead, a little tweaking to the family of colours goes a long way for the overall look and feel of your wedding. For example, a Beauty and the Beast-inspired wedding could be presented in pastel colours, to provide a softer feel to the wedding.
From table centrepieces and serviettes to wedding favours, it’s essential for the table settings to complement the theme. Simplicity is beauty – so don’t be afraid to expand the colour palette with just two different colours of varying shades.
