What are Some Ideas for Wedding Decorations?

If you have the budget and want to add a touch of elegance to your Melbourne wedding, wedding decorations can be a great way to do so.

The style of your wedding will also dictate the type of decorations you choose. For example, if you are having a traditional wedding, you may want to choose classic decorations such as flowers, candles, and table decorations. If you are having a more casual wedding, you may want to choose more relaxed decorations such as balloons, streamers, and photo booths.

Ultimately, the decision of whether or not to have wedding decorations is up to you. There is no right or wrong answer, so choose what feels best for you and your partner.

What are some tips for choosing Melbourne wedding decorations?

Here are some tips for choosing wedding decorations:
• Consider your budget.
• Choose decorations that match the style of your wedding.
• Don’t overdo it. Too many decorations can be overwhelming.
• Ask for help from friends and family.
• Have fun with it! Decorations are a great way to add personality to your wedding.

What are some ideas for Melbourne wedding decorations?

Flowers: Flowers are a classic wedding decoration, and they can be used in a variety of ways outdoors. You can use them to create a beautiful archway for the ceremony, or you can scatter them on the ground as a walkway to the altar. You can also use flowers to decorate the reception area, such as by placing them in vases or hanging them from trees.

String lights: String lights are a great way to add a touch of romance and elegance to an outdoor wedding. You can hang them from trees, around the perimeter of the ceremony or reception area, or even from the ceiling of a tent.

Lanterns: Lanterns are another great way to add light and atmosphere to an outdoor wedding. You can use them to line the walkway to the ceremony, or you can place them on tables at the reception. You can also use lanterns to create a “glowing” effect by placing them inside of paper bags or jars.

Candlelight: Candlelight is a beautiful and romantic way to set the mood for an outdoor wedding. You can place candles on tables, in lanterns, or even on the ground. You can also use candles to create a “candle wall” by placing them in front of a backdrop of greenery or flowers.

Paper lanterns: Paper lanterns are a fun and festive way to decorate for an outdoor wedding. You can hang them from trees, around the perimeter of the ceremony or reception area, or even from the ceiling of a tent. You can also use paper lanterns to create a “colourful” effect by choosing lanterns in different colours.

Fabric: Fabric can be used to create a variety of decorations for an outdoor wedding. You can use it to create backdrops, table runners, or even to cover chairs. You can also use fabric to create a “rustic” or “boho” look by using natural materials such as burlap or lace.

Foliage: Foliage is a great way to add a touch of nature to an outdoor wedding. You can use it to create a backdrop, or you can place it around the perimeter of the ceremony or reception area. You can also use foliage to create a “green” or “natural” look by using plants such as ferns, palms, or ivy.

Wood: Wood is a great way to add a touch of rustic charm to an outdoor wedding. You can use it to create tables, chairs, or even to build a pergola. You can also use wood to create a “shabby chic” or “vintage” look by using reclaimed wood or barn wood.

1. Enjoy being engaged!

Be in the moment and enjoy this special time together. Start storyboarding your ideal Melbourne wedding day. Discuss it together. What do you picture? Casual or Black Tie? Rustic or Fairy tale? Local or Destination? Wedding VIC has real weddings you can browse for inspo.

2. Tell your family and friends

Announce your engagement and discuss your Melbourne wedding plans with your family and friends. Find out if any VIPs (parents, potential bridal party members) have commitments that would rule out certain dates for people you really want attending your wedding in Melbourne.

3. Decide on the style of wedding

Your wedding style will narrow your venue choice. Melbourne wedding venues often book many months, or years in advance. Once you have your wedding style, then it becomes easier to pick your venue. The most popular styles are:
Fairytale = city ballroom
Rustic = country or winery
Beach = coastal or water views
DIY = community hall, sporting venue, private home
Destination = somewhere with great views and accommodation.
Check out the Wedding VIC venues or catering companies and make some enquiries as to availability and pricing.

4. Set your budget

Once you’ve received info on potential Melbourne wedding venues, you can think about your budget. Talk to your parents and see if they plan on contributing towards your wedding. Think about how much you can save and afford to spend on your wedding. You might like to open a separate account for wedding savings and spending. Once you have a rough budget you can consider how many people you can afford to have at each venue. Of course, it’s also an option to ask people to donate cash in lieu of a gift to help off-set the cost. Wedding VIC has a budget planner you can download to help you out.

5. Start booking!

Typically it is the reception venue selection that sets the date. Then couples consider their ceremony location – which may be at the same place. Wedding VIC has some great Melbourne wedding ceremony venues to consider – gardens, beaches and churches.

6. Photographers, video and cars!

Melbourne wedding photographers and cars can also be booked out many months, or years in advance. Don’t forget a video! Many couples skip the video, but it’s an gorgeous way to relive the forgotten or never seen moments. Have a browse through Wedding VIC to find your preferred suppliers.

7. Celebrant

Your choice of wedding celebrant can make or break your ceremony. Meet with a few and make sure they make you feel relaxed and confident. This will help with any nerves on the day.

8. Flowers, Decoration, Decor, Hire, Cake

What are you going to need to make your Melbourne wedding venue fabulous? Do you need to hire chairs and crockery for a DIY wedding? Will you have floral arbors and centerpieces? Some venue packages will include decorations – check what is included – it may be centerpieces, chair covers, etc. They may also include a wedding cake.

Consider a floral theme – it could be colour or style based. Remember that you’ll be holding your bouquet throughout the ceremony and photos – they can get heavy!

Will your wedding cake be used as dessert? This will determine what size your bakery will recommend. You can also get different tiers with different flavours! Heavenly! xx

9. Music and Entertainment

Musicians at your ceremony can set a lovely mood for your wedding. The entertainment options are endless – DJ, swing band, jazz singers, band.

10. You!

What are you going to look like and wear at your wedding? Browse through the Wedding VIC fashion, hair and makeup, and rings and jewellery sections for inspo and amazing Melbourne wedding suppliers.

11. Guest list and bridal party

Work out your guest list. Select your bridal party. It can be less stressful to select your bridal party closer to your wedding date, eg 3 months before. It’s easier to not select someone, than have to un-select them. Wedding VIC has a guest list and seating planner you can download to help you out.

Invitations! Send out invitations for your hens or bucks party, and then the wedding. Typically wedding invitations are sent 3 months in advance. Although this is flexible, and sometimes a save-the-date is important especially for friends or family that might need to travel a long way, arrange time off work, or save up to attend!

12. Honeymoon

Yay! This can be any time you like. Soon after your wedding day, or some time later. Many travel agents offer a honeymoon registry and can be an easy, but fabulous gift from your guests. If you are planning on changing your name, ensure you have your passport and travel documents in the same name! It might also be necessary to have a credit card in this name too, especially when confirming bookings or collecting tickets.

13. The last details

Maybe you’re looking for something unique to finish off the day? Or a dance studio to WOW your guests with a special routine? A thank-you gift for your bridal party and / guests is often nice too.
