First off, there is no ‘one set fits all’ general rule here, but I am always asked ‘How much decor do we need to make it look good?’
I always think it’s about really using what you have in the space you have more than how many props you throw at a venue…

Customising your venue spaces to reflect you both as a couple is becoming huge, it’s about creating something totally unique and personalised with more couples wanting their day to be WOW in every way.

Our lenders have said they don’t want their venues to look barron and empty, with a blank canvas venue the panic can set in. Do I need to add more to my order I’m asked? Without knowing how you plan to use the venue its really so hard to say. But with four bare walls and a roof, anything is possible if you have the imagination. If the thought of filling your space fills you with dread, we’re on hand with our styling services, where we’ll visit your venue and make suggestions for props and decor placement and put your mind at rest.

But if you’re a DIY pair, I would always start by listing the main key areas of your venue and the amount of time people will spend there and which areas will be well photographed:

ENTRANCE – Guests will be here just a few moments but it’s so worth creating something fab to set off your space.

CEREMONY – Lots of photos taken here so be sure to add lots of pretty at the head of the aisle.

TABLES – A few hours spent here but be sure to make the top table and bride and grooms place settings special.

FOOD TABLES – A few moments through the day but give your cake (if you have one) a rad platform to shine.

BAR – Just a few moments through the evening you’re guests will be here (unless they’re propping it up!), I’d always add plenty of candle light for your evening bar space, to give guests somewhere more relaxing that the dance space.

DANCE FLOOR – Here you can have some fun, from Pinatas to giant balloons and signage. This area should say Party.
