Making Your Wedding Vision a Reality

By Nancy Burroughs

Selecting a venue is one of the most important decisions of a Bride and Groom’s wedding planning process. Once selected, keep in mind the following factors to truly personalize your venue and translate your wedding vision into reality.

1. Lighting

Lighting can be the easiest, fastest and most effective way to completely change the mood of a venue. Whether you’re going for a romantic feel with soft lighting, or for a glam look with lots of color, lighting can make all the difference in the world. This helps to set the mood for your guests as soon as they walk in, and can help translate your theme from floor to ceiling.

2. Color Scheme

Whatever your wedding color scheme, make sure to carry it throughout the entire venue space and keep it consistent. Selecting specific colors, whether incorporated in your lighting, linens, flowers or signature cocktail, will ensure your event venue expresses a cohesive image, tying all elements of the venue together. Remember, less is more with bold colors, but consistency is key.

3. Personal Logo

This can apply to just about any aspect of your venue, as long as you are creative. A popular trend is a photo backdrop, with the couples’ logo, initials or wedding date. Customization can also come into play with many other details – napkins, matches or even your dance floor or ice sculpture. You can put your logo on just about anything, which will make for a personalized experience.

4. Make It Personal

For many couples, their wedding is truly about the two of them, but it’s also about the family members and loved ones who have supported them throughout their lives. Choosing a focal point as guests enter the wedding venue to display family photos is a memorable and personal way to honor both sides of the family, while also providing your guests with an insight to your lives.

The most important concern of personalizing your venue is to remember to have fun and don’t get lost in the process.
