How to Decorate a Wedding Reception Hall

Updated April 17, 2017

One important part of planning your wedding is planning your wedding reception. You are going to want to make sure that your reception hall looks fabulous. After all, this is the time for you to celebrate your marriage. Not sure where to begin when decorating the hall? Here are some simple steps that will make it easy for you to decorate your wedding reception hall in a breathtaking way.

Carry through the theme of your wedding. If you have any particular colours that you are using for your wedding, consider using them when you are decorating the reception hall. Whether you are choosing tablecloths or banners for the reception, go with the colour scheme you chose for the ceremony.

Consider seasonal or holiday decorations for the reception hall. If you are having a wedding near a holiday or during a particular season, you may want to go with decorations that go along with the season or holiday. During Christmas, going with a Christmas theme in the reception hall is a great idea, even if you didn't use a Christmas theme for the rest of the wedding.

Let your personality shine through. Don't go with the same decorations you've seen at everyone else's wedding reception. Decorating to go along with your hobbies can be a great idea. For example, if you are big music fans, consider decorating the reception hall with music-themed decorations.

Add some mood lighting. Lighting is definitely important when you are decorating your wedding reception hall. While the hall should have a party feel, it should also feel romantic. If you want a big-time party and dance feel, consider adding a disco ball to the room. For a romantic feel, consider candles or miniature white lights strung up around the room.

Don't neglect the tables when you are decorating your wedding reception hall. While you don't want to overcrowd your tables, a few decorations will make the tables look great. Consider using flowers, candles or other decorations on the tables.

If you are not having a professional do the decorating for you, ask for some help. Have some family members or your bridesmaids help you out when decorating your wedding reception hall. This way you'll get the opinions of others, and it will go a whole lot faster. Remember, this is a big job, and you can't do it on your own.
