Out of everything on your wedding ‘to do’s’, decorating your venue must be the most fun box to tick off that wedding day checklist. With an array of inspiration, from Pinterest to real life wedding features, there are tons of options when it comes to ramping up the glam factor. From lights to floral arrangements, neon signs to wedding chairs, we have compiled them all in one place to help you narrow down your decor ‘must haves’ and pull off an effortlessly glamorous wedding.
1. Fairy Lights
Fairy lights are an easy and affordable way to create an intimate atmosphere. Whether they are strewn as a captivating canopy above the dance floor, behind sheer tulle for a stunning backdrop or even integrated into your aisle, fairy lights create magic and transform your wedding venue into a modern day fairy tale.

2. Neon Lights
Neon lights are a fun way to add a modern meets retro vibe to your wedding. Whether they’re used as ceremony backdrops, in photo booths or a spunky addition to your dancefloor, they’re a perfect way to share your new last name, favorite love quotes, or even your wedding hashtag. Combine them with striking florals to add a real wow factor to your wedding.
The centrepiece for saying your ‘I do’s’ your wedding arch is the number one focal point of your wedding day, so go big or go home. Whether it’s full circle, classic arch or something more geometric, choose to decorate your structure with an abundance of flowers to match your wedding colour palette, foliage, and/or tulle. Wedding arches are perfect for minimal, formal and boho weddings alike, the ultimate glamorous party piece.
4. Flowers & Foliage
Flowers and foliage are nothing new when it comes to wedding decor, but it’s all about how you use them. Fresh flowers will enhance the overall look and feel of your wedding, use them to accent existing architecture, suspend lush floral installations above your banquet tables to create a more intimate space, accentuate your runway with a carpet of petals, or go all out à la Kim & Kanye with a floor to ceiling floral wall.
Calligraphy turns even your name into a stunning piece of art - having signage at your wedding shows no detail left unturned, no expense spared. Chalkboards are a great way to welcome your guests, point them in the right direction, or simply as a stunning backdrop for that perfect Insta-shot. If blackboard calligraphy is too relaxed to suit your theme, get a more modern sign customized to suit, it is your wedding day after all.
Ceremony chairs are a wedding staple and should be decorated as such. Whether you choose a classic Chiavari chair or opt for something more modern, whether you accent them with florals and tulle, foliage wreaths, or even ribbons, you’ve got plenty of options to really make an impact. Don’t forget to finish them off with ‘Mr & Mrs’ signage to suit your wedding theme and tie everything together.
