It’s true what they say, if you want a beautiful wedding, you must invest on the reception décor. How you dress up the reception venue plays a big role in the overall look of your wedding. It’s not only money that you have to spend for this but also your time and energy. Below, we’ll take a look at the hottest incoming trends for this year so you’d have some ideas on what to incorporate on your big day.
Wedding themes, welcome back!
There was a brief time when wedding themes became a “thing of the past.” It’s not anymore. It has made a comeback for this year, thanks to those brides who just have too much imagination not to have a wedding theme. So, what are your options? A beach theme with drift wood decors, conch shell and star fish centerpieces will complement a seafood dinner. It’s also nice to have an outdoor wedding on a wine estate and serve exquisite wine and yummy cheese all night long. Barn weddings, vintage Victorian and ethnic celebrations are just few of the many other options that you have.
Specialty stations to take you by surprise
Specialty stations are going to be a part of the reception decorations from now on. Let’s start with those decadent candy buffet stations that come complete with pretty scoops and spoons. Guests especially those with a sweet tooth will feel like they’re in heaven when hanging out near this particular station. And because it’s so colorful, it adds to the beauty of the reception venue.
Dessert trolley stations that go around with gorgeous cupcakes, pastries and treats are just as big hit. A photo booth also adds funk to your wedding reception décor. This is usually included for the enjoyment of the guests who will have a grand time doing wacky poses and dressing up in funny costumes in front of the camera.
Be impressed with 2012 colors
What are the colors for this coming year? Wedding experts say that delicate natural shades are huge this 2012. Some color options that you would want to consider for your reception décor are dove gray, pale blue, soft aqua, beige and gold. Let’s not forget tangerine tango, which has just been declared as the pantone color of the year. It’s a beautiful color that you can pair up with various shades like bronze, chocolate brown, pewter gray and even hot pink!
DIYs are still very much in
It’s probably going to take a long time before DIY wedding items become outdated. For table centerpieces for example, DIY still reigns supreme. While you don’t have to make everything from scratch, you may purchase clear vases and other containers from online stores and decorate them yourself. Adding personal touch results in finer details that go a long way in impressing the people attending your special day.
Cupcakes cute and tasty
Cupcakes were a big trend last year. They continue to be so for this year. These colorful and adorable sweet treats make wonderful decorative items. Not to mention, they’re also tasty and appetizing!
