Wedding Themes and Ideas...
If you're getting married, you have probably pictured wedding themes and ideas over and over. There's no such thing as a perfect wedding theme. It all depends on what you like and how you want it presented on the day.
We have added this article to help our readers find information and useful advice about wedding themes, décor and entertainment. Please take a quick tour and see you can find the answers to your questions.
It is the little differences that can make a wedding reception adequate or awesome. For example, the décor you choose can make or break your theme as it needs to be consistent, subtle and functional. While if the band you hire doesn't play the songs you wanted to hear, you'll be forever disappointed.
When considering your wedding décor, you will need to look at candelabra or table lamps to create atmosphere. The type, colour and shape of your table cloths and what you want the cloths to coordinate with. Do you want them to match the chair covers or the sashes on the chair covers to add more contrast? Having you name tags and menus resting on easels is also a classical touch. There are also additions which can be made to the room or venue, for example, fairy lights crossed over the ceiling, sashes of fabric draped as backdrops over empty walls or even adding paintings in your theme or colours.
Your wedding entertainment will set the mood of the event and of your guests so make sure you choose a quality band or DJ.
You may want to consider having a small classical band playing at the entrance of the church to welcome guests, or have a single singer in the church to lead the guests in the hymns.
Entertainment for the wedding reception is very important as the reception will be running to a schedule - arrival of the bridal party, meal, speeches, cake, first dance, bouquet and the bride and groom's departure. You therefore need to make sure the MC you choose, be it from the band you hired or a family friend, can make the guests feel at ease, keep the night moving and make sure everyone is enjoying themselves.
If you choose a DJ, make sure they are using computer controlled music programs to ensure there is no skipping of discs or embarrassing pauses in music.
Atmosphere is also enhanced by correct lighting and effects. For example, a good entertainer may use a dry ice machine during your first dance to create a dreamy world for the bride and groom. They may even use a rose petal canon to deliver a fragrance of fresh roses to the gests.
Remember, you want the day to be perfect, so talk to the reception venue about whether they can recommend any décor or entertainment companies with wedding experience.
