Nowadays couples planning their wedding have every opportunity afforded to them to create a wedding venue décor that reflects their tastes, their hobbies and their personalities. Such options were unavailable not so long ago. There was a time when the décor options available comprised coordinated napkins, flowers and balloons – and, if you knew someone clever at sugar craft, maybe a personalized cake topper.
But with boundless opportunities comes the problem of choice – and of cost. There’s no escaping the fact that creating your dream décor is almost certain to be costly.
But there’s a clever way to get around the question of cost and that’s to hire!
If you’re full of ideas – or you could use some inspiration – but don’t have a big budget then the hire of wedding décor props in the areas of Swindon, Bath, Bristol and Oxford could well turn out to be your salvation.
Theme for a dream
The range of wedding prop items for hire is almost as limitless as your imagination.
Should you be a couple with wanderlust then an ‘Around the world in 80 days’ theme is easy to create. A stack of vintage suitcases, a pile of travel books old and new, a globe and/or wall map and a message in a bottle will set the scene. Carry it through with luggage labels for name plates and postcards for the table plan. Even the cake could be in the form of suitcases. Jules Verne himself would be impressed.
If a romantic or shabby chic look is what you dream of then there’s lots of suitable props available to hire. Ornate picture frames, lanterns filled with flowers or fairy lights, a gilded easel for the table plan and mismatched crystal candlesticks all work beautifully in such a theme.
But the pièce de résistance of a dreamy, romantic theme has to be a flower wall – à la Kim Kardashian. Based in Swindon, the Fab Gift Boutique, has just such a thing. It’s available to hire either on its own or in a package that includes chair covers, sashes, a post box or wishing well for cards, an easel for the table plan and more besides.
Weddings are most often associated with spring and summer. Indeed the warmer months are arguably peak wedding season. But with the word ‘peak’ comes another: expensive. It’s a question of supply and demand.
So perhaps a winter wedding is a way to avoid that? After all the sun can be flown to on honeymoon at any time of year. Though of course your perfect honeymoon could comprise walking the wintry Welsh mountains or trudging the snowy Scottish Highlands. In which case all the more reason for a winter wedding.
But getting married in the winter doesn’t have to mean a lack of light and sparkle in your venue.
If your budget is really tight then some glittery sparkles on white or even black – yes black – tablecloths can be so effective. For an evening reception in particular.
But there’s another way to bring some sophisticated sparkle to your wedding reception and that’s to use sequinned table cloths. Available to hire these sumptuous cloths are both gorgeous and cost effective.
Lanterns filled with glittery baubles, or even piles of glitter, or fairy lights will add to the sparkle.
For a winter wedding look beyond pastels for dressing your chairs and think of dark, rich colours to bring warmth and a shot of drama to your scheme.
