Color is one trend you can go in for. Here everything will follow the same color pattern e.g. you could go in for red or let’s say blue. This could be midnight navy, tiffany blue, pale icy blue, bright aqua or ocean blue. So these could be the shades you use in blues. The list is endless. Other colors you could choose from are persimmon which is a spicy and vibrant shade of orange, saffron which is a rich deep yellow color or you could go in for butter which is a warm and soft golden yellow color as your theme.
The next kind of theme you could follow is texture. You could go in for a crushed look in the linens; you could also try pintuck fabrics, damasks or some other tone- on-tone designs. You could go in for a layering effect like using sheer overlays on tables or on the table runners and you could also go in for beaded candlesticks.
Another concept that is picking up is the metallic look. You could go in for mixed metals, also matte metals and then there are the texturised metal finishes on the fabrics accessories or even the furniture.
Silver, aluminum or Nickel can be used in terms of an aluminum planter or shades of grey can be used on the linen and table cloths. You could accent this with black tinges here and there. So grey is certainly in.
Lace is another beautiful way of feeling special. Lace can be metallic finish on solid color table cloths. Table linens with tone-on-tone laces look lovely. It’s a way of bringing back tradition and romance back from history.
Another great is geometric designs of the 1960s. If you are in a casual and happy mood you could use loads of color with geometric designs in white, chocolate brown or bubblegum pink or even black, white and lime green.. If you want the look to be more formal go in for tone- on- tone designs on geometrically designed fabrics in maybe a pintuck fabric.
Most important of all follow your heart and your instincts You could get a lot of help from professionals who would give you maximum results with minimum work put in so do not hesitate in engaging wedding planners.
Another way to speak is through flowers. Flowers would enhance the look of any gathering or celebration.
Then you could go in for valiant centerpieces which exude charm and repose at the same time highlighting each table and giving an elegant air to the whole place. A dash of color in the form of the centre-piece with a muted color scheme for the reception would look nice.
Another thing you could go in for is hanging décor. A high ceiling lends grandeur to your reception with hanging candles and canopies it would be lovely.
So try out all these various options. Lots of lit candles all over would make the party magical and the cost won`t be much. Hiring a one-day co-coordinator who will help in all the arrangements would be a marvelous idea and one you could go in for to save you a lot of trouble and make your party smooth and easy.
