The majority of your wedding celebration will take place at your reception, and that space should be nothing less than stunning. Let your wedding theme and the following tips be your guide—you won’t have any trouble transforming simple reception halls into beautiful winter wedding receptions.
Before you make changes to your reception space, ask the owners what alterations are acceptable. When scouting locations, keep possible changes in mind and pitch them to the space manager before signing on the dotted line.
Make Use of Fabric
The most significant change you can make to any space is the color of the walls. Since painting likely isn’t an option, choose fabric that highlights your winter theme (silver, black, white) and cover the walls. Measure to find exactly how much fabric is necessary to cover the entire space. Attach the fabric to the walls with fabric glue, and you won’t have trouble with removal.
Foliage is Your Friend
Flowers and plants can make a huge difference in any space. Large potted plants and trees are great for filling corners and give the room a multi-dimensional feel. Transform your space into a winter themed party by choosing poinsettias, silver painted tree branches, holly, and mini-Christmas trees.
And Then There Was Light
If the space doesn’t offer sufficient lighting that matches your desired mood, use your own lights. Highlight your winter wedding theme by placing trees throughout your reception space with white Christmas lights strung around them. Since your wedding is taking place in the coldest time of year, warm up the space with soft lighting.
