The Reception Hall
Many couples overlook the reception hall when planning out the details of their wedding décor. Many reception halls that are rented can be plain with very little decorations or highlights for a wedding! But, there are many possibilities to turn a normal banquet hall into a look of luxury. One idea which is becoming very popular is lighting, adding lighting on the walls will give the look of elegance the first moment when your guests step into the wedding reception hall. Using can lighting on the walls, or drapes throughout the hall setting will give a dramatic experience which can set the right mood for the event.
You can also include lighting for the bridal and groom table, along with the bridal party table that will highlight and set the ambiance of the event. Some will use string lights or the LED rope lights and attach to the tables and you can also use can lighting underneath to give that spectacular look.
Other ideas are using balloons and balloon arches throughout the reception hall. Place balloon arches at the entrances of the dance floor and at the entrance of the hall are ideal locations.
Balloons can also be attached to the ceiling over the dance floor and use them as a balloon drop when the reception party is at the highlight of the celebration.
Bridal Party Table Backdrop
Another common and beautiful attraction is to have a backdrop behind the bridal party table. Balloons and lighting can be used as backdrops behind the bridal party table for a festive look and feel. Another idea is using a satin or fabric backdrop which could include swags with background lighting as well for that elegant and luxury look.
