Whenever the wedding season comes along, people involved in the festivities tend to handle many things that involve the overall aesthetics of the event. One of the things that they often focus on is the motif and the theme. There is nothing wrong with that as those elements are also the focus of the bride and groom themselves; however, one of the most overlooked aspects of the wedding decoration plans comes after the "I dos."

For some reason, the wedding reception venue doesn't get the attention it deserves, despite the fact that it is still part of the wedding program, and such a place must match the theme of the whole event itself. That being said, here are some amazing decor ideas to make it more appealing right after the wedding.


Plant Some Flowers

Having flowers at the wedding makes for an excellent idea to decorate the venue. It is still one of the best and all-time favourites that people use year after year. However, the best time to do it is right after the wedding. In fact, you can also have flower girls throw these flowers straight into the faces of the newlyweds. It will surely make them laugh.


Light Some Candles

Candles are like the best companions during the wedding. Nothing matches its ambience better, and the best time to light the candle is right after the wedding. It will give off a romantic and warm feeling to the wedding couple and their guests, making it a perfect time for them to have their first dance as husband and wife.


Bring In the Photo Booth

The photo booth is not only for the reception; it can also be used as a decoration. It may not be as fancy as the flowers and the candles, but it is undoubtedly a way of capturing the fun. One of the best parts about the photo booth is its appealing look. It can easily be mistaken for a fancy antique. It also does not have to be a hassle for the wedding organisers as it can be a small booth placed in the corner of the room where the wedding reception will be staged.


This small booth can be enough to make the event a blast.


Change the Lights

The lights can be changed as part of the wedding reception decoration. You can ask the venue owner to let you adjust these lights into something that suits the theme. Nothing is stopping you from having a disco ball suspended in the middle of the room, or you can ask the owner to put coloured lights on the ceiling to give it a fancy look.


Do Some Stargazing

You can go for the nautical theme, but there is no need for it to be salty. Get those star lights and tie them around the room. This is the best time for you to decorate the venue with these star lights as it will surely make it feel like you're stargazing. Not only will this give off an astronomy-themed wedding feel, but it will also make it more romantic.



There are so many things that can be done to make the venue seem like a fancy place. Whatever wedding decoration ideas you have in mind will surely make the wedding more appealing. Simply make sure that you check the venue policies first before making any unnecessary changes.

Do everything right the first time, and the wedding couple is surely going to appreciate the hard work and effort you put into the wedding reception.
