Wedding décor can make or break your big day. Some brides want simple décor and others want more bold and extravagant items. It is not uncommon for brides to go a little overboard when in “wedding planning mode.” Budgets may increase, guest counts may go up, new desserts or cake ideas may arise, etc., however the ONE thing you don’t want to get out of hand is your wedding décor. There is a thin line between what is cute and what is tacky.
First thing you have to know when shopping for your décor is that just because many things are cute, that does not mean that they will all look great together! For instance, if your favorite colors are red, blue, and pink, all of which are bold colors, it may not be the best idea to go and grab everything in those colors just to have to “find” a place for it in your wedding/reception hall. Plan out the color theme, consider dark and light variations of colors to have the best mix, etc.
Consult with a professional or trusted individual. It is perfectly fine to be the creative bride who does not want a wedding planner, but along this long journey it is very important that you have a support system that you can bounce ideas off of. It will be great to get their opinions on different aspects of the wedding décor to ensure that it all flows well.
Along with talking to someone, do some research on your own, there are tons of wedding sites, magazines and events that you can attend that are meant to help you during this process, and more specifically this can help you see what looks good together and what may not.
The last and most important thing is to do a mock set up to see if the vision you have in your head can be executed properly and actually looks good. For example, the last thing you want to do is to order all of these wonderful items for your wedding centerpieces and then the day before the wedding you see everything assembled together and you hate it!
