Designing for a Wedding
Planning a wedding can be stressful. To make one of the most memorable days of your life just a little easier, consider the following tips for choosing your themes, colors and wedding decor.
Your furniture preferences are an excellent guide when it comes to picking a wedding theme. If you tend to favor traditional styles, you'll probably want a theme that portrays classic elegance in a timeless venue like a church or historic home.
People who like boho or shabby chic decor tend to gravitate toward beachfront weddings with themes to match. Rustic tastes lead to simple decorations and a backyard venue. Those who love mid-century modern style should pick a theme that leaves room for contemporary twists on classic wedding decor.
Of course, factors like the time of year and available venues can affect what you choose. The idea is to pick something that appeals to your preferences.
Picking Wedding Colors to Match

Helpful Wedding Decorating Ideas
Since the wedding decor should reflect your theme and colors, take a look at these common styles for some specific decor suggestions:
- Classic - Consider filling reception halls with elegant light fixtures and flower arrangements as wedding table centerpieces.
- Rustic - Wicker dining chairs and eclectic wall art can give your rustic wedding a little extra texture and warmth.
- Backyard Wedding - Bring out your color palette by placing outdoor throw pillows throughout your reception area or go with gauzy white draped panels to set a romantic tone.
While the majority of wedding decorating tips will depend on the mood you want to create and the color scheme you've chosen, some advice is universal. So remember, always look for deals and bargains, and keep an eye out for decor you can reuse later. Above all else, enjoy your special day with your new spouse!
