Moreover, couples nowadays are becoming savvier and they want the celebration with their personal touches. It is their wedding after all. Designing your own reception venue is practical yet it is not an easy task. Therefore, we give you today 10 easy ways to decorate your venue!
1. Chalkboard Welcome Signage
Wanna be hippie and kinda cool? Why not write your greetings in chalk to welcome your guests?
2. Calligraphed Nameplates and Menus
Calligraphy has been a popular thing in the recent years, hence joining the bandwagon wouldn’t hurt. Imagine your nameplates and menus in calligraphy, it exudes class and elegance, right?
Flowers won’t fade away from the wedding scene. Never. Hence, fill your wedding venue with scented flowers. Whether it is in a pot, on table, or hanging, flowers will make the celebration bloom.
