Add a rustic charm to your venue with wooden signposts! They’re the ‘it’ new thing that wedding decorators are totally going all out with this season. To glam up the space, simply use strings of bulbs or fairy lights. Image: Devika Narain on Instagram
It’s amazing just how a little fabric can jazz up your wedding venue. If you’re planning an outdoor wedding, you can hoist transparent white fabric tents and add some lights to keep it formal and elegant.
What’s better than having a wall devoted to a row of your and your partner’s family photos on your wedding day. Showcase your new family tree by mixing the photos to showcase your love.
Fairy lights add a dreamy look to the ambience. Deck up the venue with multiple layers of fairy lights to give a grand look brighten up any space without putting in too much effort.
