What Wedding Decor Do I Need?

Are you planning a wedding and wondering what wedding décor do I need? Well, there are plenty of supplies you can buy or rent from your local party rentals. These supplies include:

Aisle markers

You display these at the end of every row of ceremony chairs, benches, or pews.

You can line them at the center aisle (where your wedding party will walk during the ceremony procession) or tie them to the wedding chairs. Some people prefer to place them on the ground or display them on stakes/hooks.

Some of the popular aisle makers you can go for include: bows, greenery bundles, and candles.

Altar arrangements

You display the floral arrangements on both sides of the wedding altar, where you place the larger arrangements directly on the ground and the smaller ones on top of pillars or tables.

Aisle runners

Traditionally, the aisle runner is a long piece of cloth covering the entire length of the ceremony aisle, and it’s often unrolled before the bride’s entrance by the flower girl and ring bearer.

Today the aisle runner can be as creative as you want it to be, and you can use any material. Some of the excellent aisle runner ideas include: covering the floor with rose petals, lining vintage rugs on the floor, or staying away from the runner altogether.

Garland

A garland resembles a botanical “rope,” and it’s often made from flowers, greenery, or both. You can drape or hang the garlands on almost anything, including chairs, doorway toppers, or even wrap them around the staircase banisters.

Ceremony signage

Ceremony signage is a cute and fun way to personalize your venue and welcome your guests to the event. You can also use signage to share important information about the event. For example, if you have an unplugged ceremony, you can use the signage to remind everyone to turn off their cameras.

Arch

This is a type of wedding altar beneath which a couple exchanges their vows. Arches often have two posts that are often round, with two of the most popular types of arches being circular and half-arches.

You can decorate with pampas grass, greenery or flowers.

Arbor

The arbor is similar to the arch but instead of being round, its square and often features four posts instead of two, which creates a canopy. The most popular type of wedding arbor is Jewish chuppahs.

Flower girl and ring bearer items

You should get them a basket of flower petals or confetti to scatter along the aisle while the ring bearer holds a pillow or box containing the wedding rings for the flower girl.

Wedding programs

Also known as ceremony programs, these are cards or booklets bearing the name of the people in your wedding party and outline the order of the ceremony events.

Reception centerpiece

From the name, you place this at the wedding reception, often at the center of the reception tables. The most common wedding reception centerpieces are flowers, greenery, and candles.

China

These are ceramic plates or porcelain that give a formal look to your wedding tables. The beauty of China is you can find them in any size, shape, pattern, or color, which allows you to be as creative and traditional as you want.

Flatware

These include eating utensils such as knives, forks, and spoons. Depending on your wedding theme, you can pre-arrange the flatware at every setting or display it communally in baskets or other containers.

Sweetheart table

This is a dinner table for the newlyweds, often placed at the reception. The sweetheart table gives the newlyweds some alone time instead of sitting at the large head table with the bridal party.

Bistro lights

These are round, bulbed lights that give your event a European aesthetic. You place them at the outdoor dining area or the entrance.

Gobo

A gobo is a screen that changes the light into a word, shape, or symbol when projected onto the floor or a wall. There are standard gobos you can rent from the wedding party rentals Rockland NY, but if you have the budget, you can hire an event lighting professional to create custom gobos to personalize and make your wedding more interesting.
