The venues potential time constraint may impact negatively upon what our Elegance Decor wedding decorators London team can achieve within the time and budget you had originally allocated towards designing your wedding decor.
Some unethical venues may also have a clause in the contract obligating you to pay additional for their ‘one-size fits all’ ‘in-house’ caterers, DJ’s, photographers, wedding decor, and so forth. Such ‘one-stop shops’ generally offer the same substandard wedding decoration hire to different brides day-in and day-out. If you later disagree with having the venue’s wedding decor you could risk forfeiting your deposit or even worse, having no wedding decoration hire at all.
Some venues may inform that their “luxury” wedding backdrops and usually also involving centrepiece hire, are incorporated into the venue’s hire price as a set wedding decor package. However this ultimately means you are paying additional hire for a standard wedding backdrops, rather than truly stunning wedding backdrops (such as bespoke Floral Wedding Backdrops, Starlight Wedding Backdrops, or Grecian Wedding Backdrops to name a few). There is an essential difference! You deserve sumptuous couture wedding backdrops and centrepiece hire to reflect the uniqueness of your special day, beloved family and friends.
So, before giving a venue your hard earned deposit, confirm if there are any restrictions governing wedding decor.

Do read the venues contract before signing! From the outset the above will support you ring-fence realistic revenue for your wedding decoration hire.
Reputable wedding decoration hire companies such as Elegance Decor will however exceed your expectations of what is achievable within a limited timeframe and budget.

Wedding Decoration Hire; The Art of Design:
At Elegance Decor, we assert that anyone can to varying degrees, visualise otherwise one would never put on a nice colour-coordinated outfit, decorate a living room or design a garden. Some couples find it easier to visualise their wedding decoration hire design by making a pictorial portfolio of desired flower centerpieces, wedding backdrops, etc whilst others may simply close their eyes and dream.
To begin, consider which wedding decor style you envision might suit your personality or guest’s preference, or both? Take time, relax, close your eyes and gently think about it for a while…
Did you visualise vintage wedding decor or contemporary wedding decor? Now observe the venue’s geographical context; is it set in a soft relaxed rural village or busy vibrant urban London area? Respecting the venue’s location and existing features are essential. Is it a modern or a period featured building? Would you like to harmonise the wedding decor with the venues original features or offer a complete contrast.
Now lets imagine arriving at your wedding venue with your bridesmaids gleefully sowing confetti in a dull empty doorway.
Conversely, lets now imagine the same scene with the doorway brightened by a magnificent arch of flowers with you walking underneath blooming wedding flower trees bordered by flower centerpieces. Regardless whether the scene above is for a Nigerian Wedding, Asian Wedding or any other; an appreciation of the significance of wedding decoration hire is undeniable.
Traveling through your venue, is the grandeur of your beautiful wedding decor carried throughout? Strategically placed professional lighting design to illuminate, sculpt and accentuate existing features or thoroughly colour wash the venue, skilfully and subtly offers focal points or unify a space, seamlessly and tastefully guiding and enticing you to the grand finalé; your reception wedding decor.
Some spatial spaces require a minimalist approach, using professional lighting design only, whereas other spaces require a comprehensive array of wedding decoration hire props, such as venue draping, wedding backdrops and flower centerpieces. Having visual impact on the ground level is impressive however a floral ceiling canopy-complete with frothy cascading flowers and sparkling crystal garlands-simply raises the standard of the wedding decor to a whole other level.
As guests enter your wedding reception, it is however ultimately the flower centerpieces that collectively greet them and set the overall scene and the wedding backdrops which simply states - STUNNING !
Sensible couples earmark the majority of their wedding decoration hire budget towards where their guests typically spend most part of their time, sat before the flower centerpieces; undeniably the most essential aspect of the wedding decoration hire.
Most wedding centrepiece hire styles cluster into one of four categories; architectural (contemporary and sculptural), vintage (fluffy and feminine), English garden (full, trailing and colourful) and Tuscan (warm, rustic and Autumnal). Identifying one of the above will also assist you choose your colour palette. The flower centerpieces colour tone needs to be unified with the existing space. This can all be a daunting prospect, especially for those without a creative background but your experienced wedding decorators London team should be able to assist; making designing your wedding decor seem effortless and we hope enjoyable.
Wedding flower centerpieces should be to scale with the reception space: the larger the venue, the grander the displays. First consider the height of the flower centerpieces; as a general guide the centrepiece hire should be either below or above eye-level of your seated esteemed guests for ease of conversation. This will add greatly to the atmosphere, fostering relations and shared celebration of your special day and wedding decoration hire.
If your banqueting suite has high ceilings, tall wedding centrepiece hire is essential, as you don’t want too much empty space between the table surface and the ceiling. Well-placed wedding flower trees offer the essential proportion to the space. Low-level wedding flower centerpieces work well in small intimate rooms and also for outside functions but they can also complement the base of your ‘statement’ flower centerpieces such as the wedding flower trees. However the wedding reception centrepiece hire theme must tie gracefully from one to the next.
Alternating tall wedding flower centerpieces with low flower centerpieces to break-up empty space without doubt looks absolutely stunning, the most appeasing for any wedding photographer to capture and essentially keeps centrepiece hire costs to a minimum.
Whilst the design of wedding flower centerpieces do not need to be identical from table to table, they should share common elements to tie your theme together. Whether you choose to uniform the colour scheme or vary the content within the centrepiece hire, both approaches bode well.
Thus far, together we have established that your guests will spend most of their time sat before the wedding flower centerpieces however without question, their eyes WILL predominately be transfixed upon the bride and groom, sat proud before their most exquisite couture wedding backdrops. It is therefore paramount that the wedding backdrops upstage, or at the very least compliments, the grandeur of the flower centerpieces.
There are many wedding backdrops styles to consider, from Starlight Wedding Backdrops, Grecian Wedding Backdrops to full couture Flower Wedding Backdrops, all as equally universally suitable for Nigerian wedding decor, Asian wedding decor, Jewish wedding decor and so on. Essentially the wedding backdrops scene provides the very best showcase and photo opportunities for your wedding decor photo album.
