This comes in at one of the pricier options for wedding room decoration – people are often surprised by the cost of fresh flowers. But fresh blooms, particularly if you’re after a variety that isn’t in season at the time of your wedding, are expensive. It goes with the territory, unfortunately!
If you do have the budget for it, you can work with your florist to create something really special. This is one of the best ways to make your wedding venue exceptionally beautiful. Plus, it’s hard to beat natural beauty so we always recommend have some on your big day.
Decorations that represent the two of you as a couple are becoming more popular for wedding room decoration. It makes sense, right? What better way to celebrate your quirks, interests and memories than at your own wedding? One of our favourites is naming your tables as your favourite places and why they mean something to you. You can also have a collection of photos of family members who aren’t around anymore. Personal details are the most meaningful.
From fairy lights to candlelight, forms of lighting deliver the best visual impact with the least effort required. Some of the most romantic wedding room decorations include twinkling flames and glittering light bulbs. This is a seriously cost-effective way to make your venue look magical.
Creating your own decorations may be time-consuming. But it’s also a sure way of getting what you want without spending a fortune. Lots of couples recruit close friends and family members to help with this which can be a lot of fun. Although don’t expect anyone to do this – undue pressure on loved ones can cause tension during wedding planning).
Popular DIY options range anywhere from table plans and simple flower arrangements to homegrown blooms or even bespoke clothing made by a loved one.
If you’re having a destination wedding, including details in your wedding room decoration that reference the country you’re marrying in is a lovely idea. You could also give guests a local souvenir as a favour or include illustrated signage as a nod to the nation. The possibilities are endless!
We know the insta-worthy flower wall or floral arch has long bee around in wedding fashion. But there are other ways to make a decorative statement, too.
Want to work with your florist to create something remarkable? We love the option of a canopy. Leaves, flowers, lights and/or candles hanging down above a table or room are also spectacular. If you want to go on a smaller scale, light-up letters, magnificent cakes or bold colours can achieve a stand-out effect, too.
Antique items, old books, kooky instruments and anything else you can gather is a great way to jazz up your tables. And it’s affordable!
Head down to your local charity shop or vintage shop, or pay a visit to that quirky market you’ve never been too. You can also grab whatever pretty ornaments you’ve got lying around the house and use those. It’s all in the imagination.
If your venue has a garden or you’re marrying in one, we love garden games as a quaint way to spice up the lawn and get all your guests having fun. Plus, they always look really cute in pictures.

Put it somewhere it’ll really stand out, surround it with candles, flowers, treats or other desserts. Choose a huge multi-tiered design that’s covered in dripping icing or sugar flowers. Or maybe have one made bespoke! The best bit about this idea is that nothing will go to waste (your guests will make sure of that, where’s a plate?)
