Several wedding room decoration ideas to live a dream day
- Flowers and foliage
Impossible to do without a floral decoration ! Whether the theme of your wedding is rustic, vintage, tropical, romantic or chromatic, flowers have become this all-purpose accent and therefore essential for festive decor. What’s more, they are arguably one of the most economical decorating ideas. Because with a wedding decoration in the neutral range, even a very small soliflore garnished with a rose could create the wow effect so desired. Otherwise, there are several flower arrangements that are a little more sophisticated, but actually so simple that you could make on your own. From table runners with green foliage, to flowery arches to metal rings decorated with floral accents. They will also be the stars of a wedding decoration inspired by the country theme.

- Draped ceiling
Wedding decoration is no longer just focused on the table. Special thought is now given to the ceiling to create the impression of a romantic and welcoming atmosphere that surrounds guests everywhere. Fairy lights, paper lanterns, balloon arches, flower pots often hang from the ceiling to decorate the heights. And note that these are often large volumes in a wedding hall. But still, the fabric bands and the veils are a fairy way to draw attention to the ceiling.

Another very romantic way to decorate the ceiling is the “starry sky” with fairy lights. The same would be the effect produced by any light source unless it produced dim light. Illuminated letters, suspended electric bulbs or a multitude of candles on the floor or to decorate and illuminate tables, are among the common solutions. You might even think of letters or another neon pattern that certainly won’t fail its eye-catcher in a dimly lit wedding venue..
Decoration of light garlands for a romantic atmosphere
A staple of any party, balloons are suitable for any wedding theme. Except, when it comes to a tropical or Hawaii-themed wedding, for example, we will naturally prefer balloons in bright colors such as fuchsia, emerald green and yellow. However, these colors will not be suitable for a chic wedding or a pastel wedding, which would bet on balloons of white, gold, silver or pink, blue and pale green. Otherwise, there are several ways to arrange them – ceiling helium balloons, balloon garland, balloon arch. And besides making a pretty decoration, these could become the subject of many wedding activities.

On the sides of the table or to decorate the back of a chair, ribbons are another festive accent one could think of including. If this is a low budget informal wedding, proceed as shown in the photo below. That is, tie simple narrow ribbons of closely related colors to create an ombre effect. For a neater and more elegant decoration, we advise you to use a large organza, satin or tulle ribbon.

- Recovery scale
Thinking of recuperation is undoubtedly the best solution to save on the wedding budget. Indeed, several objects of daily life could live their second youth and that on the occasion of your D-Day. An interesting and very widespread idea consists in recycling old jars or glass jars to make candle holders or else of vases. Insert small bouquets of field flowers and you have a magnificent country-style decor. Another rather interesting suggestion is to salvage an old ladder to display the seating plan. But still you can hang it from the ceiling and hang small decorations! Other than the ladder, the wooden crate and the pallet are the other scraps you won’t hesitate to use – especially for a vintage-themed wedding..

Originality could also be introduced through the use of an elegant or stand-out table runner. The simple fabric, jute or tulle table runner is therefore far from the only possible solution.

The savagery of the country setting would stand out, for example, with a laurel garland running along the table from end to end and sometimes falling to the ground. Bohemian chic wedding?
