Styling Your Reception Venue
The only problem is, the average tea light candle only lasts an hour.
Battery operated tea lights are a lot nicer than they used to be and create a long lasting romantic effect.
Nothing is worse than ordering 100 chair covers only to find out that on the day, they're the wrong size. Nightmare! Check the size of the chairs, or use the venue's regular chair cover people to ensure that everything is perfect.
You could wrap the sash around the whole chair, tie it at the top or bottom of the chair rest.
Ask your chair cover people to arrange your sashes in a way that they don't usually to allow for an interesting style.
Bring in the Light
If your venue is quite dark, as many historic venues can be, dress your venue all in white! This will help brighten the room by gently reflecting some of the light and will lighten the space. If you want to add some colour, use mood lighting around the room.
If you're on a tight budget but want centre pieces that create an impact, try candelabras.
If you don't include flowers, they can be a lot cheaper than using the traditional table centres.
Glass placemats reflect the ceiling lights, look great on the table and they make a fantastic statement! If you buy or hire large glass placemats, accessorise with large candles and scatter crystals, you'll have a fantastic and inexpensive table centre.
