Many couples organising a wedding don't think about their preferred wedding accessories and chair covers until the later stages of the planning process.
By this point, husbands and brides-to-be will already have plenty of information about their chosen venue. As such, it's worth thinking about which decor items are most appropriate for your reception areas.
A historic venue, for instance, could be suitable for cotton chair covers, which have a classical look and feel. It's important to try and complement the backdrop of a venue with a careful arrangement of decorations.
When faced with the task of styling a dramatic castle, fort or stately home, for example, it's crucial that organisers enhance the qualities of the interior, rather than diminish its beauty. To this end, cotton chair covers can provide a welcome addition to a wedding venue.
But what about those who are looking to host their wedding reception in a modern venue? Well, perhaps the choices are even greater. It doesn't matter whether you select white Lycra stretch chair covers, or pleated cotton alternatives. A modern venue is ideally suited towards accommodating a range of materials and colour schemes.
Indeed, it's precisely this kind of flexibility that makes modern wedding venues so popular among couples. It's also true to say that modern venues sometimes provide ample space, so there's plenty of room for your florists and wedding stylists to let their imagination run wild.
Whatever the nature of your wedding set-up, there should always be room for colourful organza sashes. These can provide an extra touch of colour that chair covers alone won't be able to provide. Many suppliers boast an enviable range of colours these days, from traditional whites and pinks to extravagantly-named modern shades. A two-tone colour scheme can help create a memorable backdrop to your special day.
And of course, the proof is in the pudding. It's only when guests enter the wedding venue that the impact of such decor items can truly be measured. The first sight of a fully-styled reception area is a special moment indeed, and a careful arrangement of linens, flowers and accessories can pay dividends.
There are many ways to make the most of your wedding venue, but ultimately, the quality and care demonstrated by your suppliers will make the difference. It's worth doing your homework in advance so that everything passes off without a hitch when it comes to the big day itself.
