When you’re planning your wedding, the little details can mean a lot, and the last thing you want to do is compromise on style or decor, just to fit your budget. Lucky for you, the in-house design team at this Colorado wedding venue has a few tips to ensure you can enjoy the best day ever with all of your favorite people – without breaking the bank!
Once you’ve chosen the ideal season or date, it’s time to choose the patterns, fonts, colors, and themes that will be used throughout the day. These decisions can set the tone of the entire celebration, so take your venue and location into consideration. The venue interior should be in a neutral palette with updated decor – these items tend to match more diverse color palettes and styles. By selecting a brand palette early on, all other decor decisions will be a piece of cake – and you’ll be miles ahead of schedule when it comes to centerpiece, menu card designs, and decor.
Designer Tip: Start with two main colors and add two or three accent hues. For printed materials, stick to two or three fonts. With a set palette, you’ll be able to mix and match patterns, while keeping the look cohesive and chic.
SET THE SCENE
At a seated dinner, where attendees will pay the most attention to what is right in front of them, the centerpiece is an opportunity to wow. Instead of decorating the entire venue, you can save money and focus on a tablescape and centerpieces that will make a big impact. However, a poorly thought out centerpiece can kill conversation. As a rule, centerpieces should be shorter than 14 inches or taller than 24. Blooms are beautiful, but try experimenting with eclectic items, such as a collection of bottles, picture frames, or candles.
Designer Tip: Try mis-matching items to get the right look. Play around with shapes and textures – have fun with it!
SHARE YOUR STYLE WITH A CUSTOM DESIGN
No matter which style of service you choose, the food display is an excellent opportunity to showcase your unique style and personality. Using the in-house design team at Copper Leaf Gardens & Event Center, your custom menu boards and food display decor is included complimentary. The team will work with your unique wedding style and design to create a cohesive look throughout your wedding.
Design Tip: This is where your personal branding palette is very helpful! Choosing one palette from the beginning ensures that the whole event is cohesive and beautiful.
Ask the hotel where your guests are staying to place a personalized card and even a simple favor, like a bag of chocolates, on each of your guests pillows. They’ll arrive to their rooms after a fun night with a sweet memory of you and a late-night snack!
Designer Tip: Save money on printing cost by handwriting the thank you note and snack tags. Bonus: a handwritten note always feels more genuine.
