Weddings are often described as the happiest day of the bride and groom’s lives, not to mention a brilliant occasion for the guests. But, as anyone who has ever organised a wedding knows, in order to make the big day perfect requires months of logistical planning, not to mention a hefty budget: everything may look seamless on the day but it takes months to create the seemingly effortless beauty and perfect ambience of a wedding.
The perfect wedding deserves a lovely setting and, if a castle in the Scottish highlands is beyond your budget, there are plenty of way to transform your venue into an oasis of beauty and extravagance. The key is to add the ‘wow’ factor without breaking the bank, and in order to achieve this the devil really is in the detail.
Your wedding hall, dining room or reception marquee may look good on paper, but have you considered those finishing touches that are so important to the finished effect? A good example is furniture: typically you’ll need a lot of chairs and tables to make your guests comfortable but when it comes to finding tables and chairs in large quantities, comfort, value and style do not always go hand in hand.
You can pick up some really beautiful wedding chair covers, plus matching table wear and decorations, for a fraction of the price of hiring expensive furniture. By selecting the right chair covers and other accessories your wedding venue will be transformed (plus no one will even know that they’re seated on humble folding or stacking chairs). It’s easy to forget details like ordering chair covers, but they can rally make the difference to the look and feel of your wedding.
once you’ve selected items like chair covers and tableware you can plan your colour scheme around them, and all the other details become easy – matching flowers, place settings and confetti all help to add that extra little bit of elegance without tipping your budget over the edge.
When you’re organising any big event attention to detail is the key – so if you’re in the midsts of planning a wedding, yours or somebody else’s, check that you’ve ticked off the following small but crucial logistical aspects like chair covers, tableware, flowers and cutlery – they can be the key to making your event the perfect special day.
