A Naturally Beautiful Wedding Venue Doesn't Require Extra Decor
Florida, the Caribbean and Mexico are the home of some of the best beaches in the world. Europe offers sophistication and old-world charm with sites that speak for themselves. Canada has some of the most beautiful forests and mountaintops and Central American rain forests are magnificent. If you are looking for a drop-dead backdrop for your wedding venue, enlist the help of mother nature to save you boo-coo bucks.
Here a few tips to keep in mind when you decorate in a special setting.
Flowers in any environment makes that environment so much more beautiful.
If the venue itself is a garden setting laden with blooming Bougainvillea, Gardenia, Lilac or Azalea bushes and shrubs. You are totally set even if you didn't add a thing. But imagine how beautiful the setting would be with a few single blossoms added to your table? Then just add the same pops of color on tabletops with china, napkins and glassware.
Candles may be all you need.
There's nothing wrong with allowing natural beauty stand alone. Keep your ceremony and tablescapes completely void of color when you saturate the area with candlelight. An array of candles can provide just the right finishing touch to a beautiful space so that the environment really stands out.
White on white is calming.
When an environment is completely neutral in color such as a white tent with white/ivory linens, chairs and flooring, you create an air of peace and that in and of itself often stands alone. Because the neutral environment allows the anything else that you do to stand out, it's not necessary to do a much in order to create high impact.
Nothing but greenery has impact.
Massive amounts of greenery or in some cases merely a simple trail of greenery would be enough to complete and compliment a beautiful venue space.
Repeat what you see.
For example, terracotta pottery with cactus plants flanking your ceremony in a dessert environment reinforces what you already have and the repetition will have high impact with that little touch of a contrasting element, such as copper or another metal. In a stone-laden environment, mimic that feel with the decor for added impact. Use stoneware china or other stone elements in centerpieces on table tops in front of a stone wall. With just a hint of contrast such as blossoms or greenery, you'll have a winning design.
Texture is key.
When a space is all monochromatic in color, or all natural in feel, use textures to design. Bring in textured linens, patterned lighting or hand-painted elements. A little can go a long way when you add texture to a space.
Focus on just one color for contrast.
Something magical happens with you stick to just one color. Try contrasting orange on the beach, pure white in a green forest, or bright yellow in a black and white space. High contrast is a great design secret to create a highly dramatic effect and high-impact without spending an arm and a leg.
Monochromatic design has high impact.
When you stick to one color throughout, you automatically have people's attention. It's not necessary to do much in the way of decor but still create high impact if you splash turquoise decor along turquoise beach waters, or greenery within a forest environment, or yellow linens placed in a field of sunflowers.
