Decorating Tips for Weddings: Table Centerpieces and Balloons

Simple Decoration Tips

Most items, from stationery to place settings, are purchased or arranged based on the look and feel the couple wants for their wedding. For example, if the theme is Asian inspired, paper lanterns and Chinese take-out boxes can create beautiful "Japanese style" ambiance. I am going to share with you just a couple of tips to get you going in the right direction.

Table Centerpieces

Each of the tables at your reception, including the head table, should be decorated with a centerpiece.

Options: Candles, mirrors and flowers are popular choices for table centerpieces. However, the options are endless. Just be creative! An arrangement of shells, for example, makes a very nice centerpiece for a seaside reception. Votive candles set on top of a mirror makes a romantic centerpiece for an evening reception.

Things to Consider: Select a table centerpiece which complements your colors and/or setting. The centerpiece for the head table should be larger or more elaborate than for the other tables. Make sure that your centerpiece is kept low enough so it dozen't hinder conversation among guests seated across from each other. Consider using a centerpiece that your guests can take home as a memento of your special day.


Balloons are often used to decorate a reception site.

Options: A popular idea is to release balloons at the church or reception. This adds a festive, exciting, and memorable touch to your wedding. Balloons can be used to create an arch backdrop for the wedding cake or inexpensive centerpieces for the tables.

Things to Consider: Color coordinate your balloons to match your color scheme. Choose colors from your bouquet or your bridesmaids' dresses. Balloons should be delivered and set-up well in advance - at least before the photographer shows up. If you are planning to release balloons at the church or reception, check with your city. Releasing balloons in some cities might be illegal. Also, make sure there are no wires where balloons can get entangled. If they do, you could be held responsible for damages or cleanup expenses.

Remember, when you're choosing your wedding day decor really be aware that this is a reflection of you and your personality.

Congratulations On Your Big Day!
