Every bride planning her own wedding has asked at some point: How do I make an impression with my wedding decor without going overboard? Make a statement from Floor to Ceiling!! We decorate floors, tables, aisles and walls, even the bathrooms. One of the latest trends this year has us looking UP.
Blank white tent tops are perfect for a pop of color. Inventive lighting can add a whole new dimension to your venue. Floor space is prime real estate – why not hang your place cards, favors, candles from the ceiling! Unique ceiling coverings or outdoor lighting can help complete a theme, set the stage, and transport guests to another place entirely! Here are some of my favorite Hanging Wedding Decor – do a lot or do a little, you are sure to make an impression.
I love the idea of reverse centerpieces, hanging decor from the ceiling over the center of the table rather than having the traditional centerpiece placed on the table.
Lanterns, ribbons, and old frames are all good choices for rustic, shabby chic, modern weddings. These items are easy to find, revamp, and reuse – great for budget brides and DIY weddings.
Chandeliers are always an elegant and classy choice, bringing a little romance and sophistication to any party. There are many uses for this old fashioned feeling decor piece – hang them from trees for a garden wedding, over the newlyweds table, in the middle of a tent for a fancy focal piece.
Chinese Lanterns are a classic bride favorite. They are festive, colorful, and very versatile. Super easy to use and relatively inexpensive, they can make a huge impact for small effort.
Hanging umbrellas are visually interesting, add color, play with light, and break up dark ceiling spaces. I love the way this couple used different shapes, sizes, and patterns to pretty up their reception.
There are as many ways to use hanging wedding decor as there are types of brides – I’m talking mason jars, candles, draping, pompoms, curtains, flowers, fabric, lights and the list goes on. All it takes is some creativity, elbow grease, and willingness to envision your reception space as more than it is and everything that it can be!
