Before you know it, you will have a helpful wedding decor checklist.

Draped Fabric

If you are holding your ceremony in a spacious room but still want it to have an intimate feel, consider blocking off a part of the room using draped fabric. It can be hung from the rafters and can separate the area where your ceremony will take place from the rest of the room. It’s not likely your venue will provide the fabric, but if they do, take advantage of the opportunity. Nothing makes a wedding more intimate than when guests feel they are comfortably close to the happy couple. 

Lounge Seating

It is safe to say that by the time your reception begins, some of your guests may be feeling tired. This is especially true in the case of older folks. One way to help them enjoy the festivities is to provide some comfortable lounge chairs or benches for guests to rest on. The more unique the chairs are, the more your decor will pop. You may even want to arrange for a small couch to be placed in your reception room. Making it part of the decor is easy to do. Soft pillows and a scattering of candles can help make the sitting area even cozier. Your guests will thank you for the chance at some respite. 

Wall Images

To bring a touch of the outdoors to your indoor wedding, consider having images projected onto the walls. This is something that can often be arranged for the ceremony and/or the reception. The beauty of this modern decor is that you can choose the images that are projected. Possible examples include vines, leaves, and even a marble pattern, to add some elegance.

Murals

Aside from using digital images as part of your wedding decor, another idea is to have a mural created for your wedding reception. Modern brides are using shots of their engagement photos to create the ultimate personalized decor. Your preferences will determine if you use color or black-and-white photos.

Ice Bar

If you really want to go all out for your wedding, consider a mini bar made entirely of ice. Having your initials engraved into the bar will add to the decor, and may help to make it a conversational piece. In addition, to go that extra step, you could even have customized shot glasses made for the occasion.
