Guests will talk about those special touches that they saw throughout the day or comment on the wow factor as they entered the room. We all think of decorating the tables but consider other opportunities. Where will photos be taken, what spaces will your guests use, and are there any dull corners that could be made more interesting? – Claire Stevenson from Wedding Day Hire. “With celestial wedding décor you can choose to be as lavish or as subtle as you wish. Gold decorations, shiny crystals with sparkling table settings, and lighting mixed with shades of blue will create a mystic atmosphere for everyone to indulge.” – Inga and Shahnaz from The Surrey Events. “A celestial-themed wedding is proving to be a popular choice for 2023. Opt for brilliant white to represent the clouds and dark blue shades with gold star accents to create ‘written in the stars’ moments. Constellation imitations on menus or seating charts and moon design elements on a backdrop or the cake will create the perfect atmosphere.” – Inga and Shahnaz from The Surrey Events. Celestial Getty Images “Conjuring up a ‘not of this world’ theme brings opportunities to dress the venue and tables with pieces that your guests will marvel at as they enter the room. For tables, perhaps go for a tall slim glass vase filled with light and crystals, with either a striking flower ball or whimsical trailing floral arrangement.” – Claire from Wedding Day Hire. “Add additional light in the form of small, delicately-lit glass decorations. The overall effect is that of height and light. Complement this with standing silver vases framing the top table and a coordinating floral arrangement. Cake stands can also be interesting. Look for a floating tiered cake stand or crystals to tie in with the celestial theme.” – Claire from Wedding Day Hire. VENUE STYLING 71
