The Perfect Wedding Reception Venue

A couple of months ago, my younger sister got married in a beautiful ceremony at her church. Our father has pastored this rural, evangelical church for the past twenty-nine years. Therefore, this special place to both of us was the obvious right venue to have her wedding at. After the wedding ceremony, my parents hosted a reception in the church’s activity building. My sister even decorated this large building herself. Have you picked a venue for your wedding, but don’t know where to have your reception at? When looking for the right place to have this special event, consider your personality and the personality of your future mate. For instance, if you’re cowboy or a cowgirl, you probably wouldn’t enjoy a wedding reception at an upscale country club in town. On this blog, you will discover the best places to host a wedding reception at.

Unique Ways To Decorate Your Wedding Ballroom Venue

by Virgil Woods

Dressing up your ballroom venue is an important part of creating the perfect wedding atmosphere. You can turn a bland space into something truly special with a few clever decorations.

Here are some unique décor ideas to help bring your ballroom dreams to life.

Make a Statement with a Grand Chandelier

A grand chandelier is among the most stunning ways to decorate a wedding ballroom venue. Its intricate details, cascading crystals, and ornate fixtures will bring instant elegance to your special day. Whether you choose a classic style or a more modern design, a grand chandelier will draw admiring stares from your guests and create an unforgettable atmosphere.

When designing your grand chandelier, there are many options at hand. Consider a central feature such as a crystal globe or large floral centerpiece for maximum visual impact. From traditional glass drops to abstract shapes, you can have fun playing with different design models that fit your aesthetic. You can also incorporate colored bulbs for added drama or go with muted whites for a softer look.

Installation of the chandelier is key since you want it to be securely mounted and in line with any safety codes for the venue. Many venues offer technicians who specialize in chandeliers and can ensure everything is done properly so the fixture looks beautiful and functions without issue throughout your celebration.

Once installed, use your chandelier as the central focus of your decorations to bring an air of grandeur to your event.

Create a Wall of Lights 

A wall of lights is a bold and beautiful way to add glamour and sparkle to your wedding ballroom venue. By combining a variety of light fixtures like lamps, sconces, and chandeliers, you can create a stunning backdrop that will wow your guests. Whether you use all one kind of lighting or mix it up with different styles, the end result will be nothing short of breathtaking.

There are several ways to set up your wall of lights. You can stick with classic shapes such as circles, squares, or rectangles or go for more intricate designs with organic curves and spirals.

Also, you may want to play around with different heights, so the wall creates an interesting depth perspective when viewed from the side. Colorful washes of light are also achievable using bulbs in various hues such as pink, yellow, or purple — perfect for adding drama and atmosphere to your celebration.

Your wall of lights can be hung from the ceiling, suspended from a frame for added height, or secured directly to the walls. For a more extravagant look, consider adding a mirrored backdrop or fabric drape to complete the look.
