When you pledge, in front of your family and friends, to marry the one you love, it is a momentous occasion.
You will remember it forever. It will be photographed and videotaped to create lifelong memories of that special celebration.
“I have seen photos of many wedding ceremonies where no effort was taken to decorate the site,” says Paula Lowe, publisher, South Sound Wedding & Event magazine. “It hurts my heart to see a couple’s ceremony photos taken in front of a backyard fence or against a plain wall.”
Some wedding venues are naturally beautiful, not requiring much decoration, and some include a ceremony setting complete with an arbor or a trellis. Other sites, however, need added décor to delineate the ceremony location.
To create a beautiful space, decorate your ceremony area with an arbor, a trellis, potted trees or tall vases of flowers. Florists can assist with decorations. Ask venue staff for advice, too. Look through wedding magazines and at photos of real weddings on wedding websites to get ideas.
Decorations for your ceremony site can be simple or elaborate, depending on your taste, time, creativity and budget. However you choose to decorate for your once-in-a-lifetime ceremony, it’s important to make the setting beautiful.
