The entrance of a wedding hall is one of the first things guests will see when they walk in for a ceremony or reception. You can easily decorate an otherwise plain entrance to create a great first impression. A properly decorated entrance can set your wedding apart from the rest.
Roses and Vines
Roses symbolise love. Combine them with leafy vines for a natural look. Select a combination of roses based on your wedding colours. For instance, if your colours are red and white, decorate with red and white roses.
Arrange the roses and vines so that they form a border around the door of your wedding hall. The roses are usually taped on to protect the outer edges of the wall. Choose duct tape because scotch tape typically doesn't hold up well. Tape the roses on the wall first, and then disguise the tape by taping on the vines. Wrap tape on the stem of the vine and underneath the leaves. After you are finished, you may notice a few pieces of tape sticking out. Use a green marker to colour in the tape so that everything blends well.
Bouquets on Decorative Tables
If you prefer something more simple, decorate the entrance of the hall with floral bouquets in vases on decorative tables. The bouquets, colour-coordinated with your wedding colours, should be large and noticeable on each side of the hall's doors. This is an easy way to decorate the entrance of the hall without attaching anything to the wall. Some wedding halls may already come equipped with tables or flowers.
For a casual celebration, you can use balloons to decorate the entrance of your wedding hall. Select colours based on your wedding colours. If your colours are yellow and white, choose balloons to match. The ends of the balloons can be stapled or taped to create a balloon border around the entrance of the hall. Professional balloon providers can even make a free-standing arch to embellish the entrance to the hall.
You can also hang initials from the bride's and groom's names on the wedding-hall doors. You can buy wooden or cardboard letters at most craft stores. Decorate the letters with flowers, moss or paint. Hang them with string or ribbon above the entrance or on the doors.
