When you’re feeling all loved up and you’ve just got married, you want to be somewhere that just oozes romance, right?
Whatever and wherever your venue, these 11 romantic decorations will create a romantic atmosphere at your wedding reception – which will you set your heart on?
When it’s your best day ever, you want everyone to know it and share in the celebrating with you! Cluster these cute hessian flags together in ceramic jugs or vases on reception tables or on a table beside the entrance to your ceremony venue for guests to grab and wave you in or out (it’ll be a great photo moment!).
And we just had to get soft pink roses near the top of the list – what bloom could be more symbolic of romance than this? Choose this artificial rose garland for a more affordable way to fill your reception decor with the pretty flowers. Start by draping the garlands along mantelpieces and windowsills, then entwine them around candelabra or beams for a very pretty and whimsical effect!
In keeping with a whimsical approach to romantic decorations, why not suspend lots of pretty paper pom poms from the ceiling? They’ll also make a fantastic and budget-friendly backdrop for your top table. Coupled with those rose garlands and fairy lights, you’ll create a fairytale feel.
Rustic boards and signs will complement this feminine, romantic style perfectly. This is especially true when they express sentiment like this one does, summing up your feelings for each other in the most beautiful way. The rose decorations at the top of the board also ensure it ties in seamlessly with the your other decorations – it’s a win win!
If you want a guest book with a difference, this wooden frame with heart slots just has to be it! It will look equally pretty as a reception decoration and as a memento on the wall in your home afterwards. Guests simply take a heart, add their well wishes and drop it in!
A simpler addition, these just married balloons are the perfect decoration to complement your bolder rustic or vintage choices. In an understated and timeless ivory, the script font adds the perfect romantic touch. For best effect, group these balloons together at varying heights and tie on lengths of pretty ribbon in your chosen colour scheme.
If you’re serious about choosing truly romantic decorations, then turn your sights once again to roses. We recommend replacing traditional scatter crystals for scattered rose buds like these to evoke a fairytale, Romeo and Juliet-style charm. Remember to match the colour of the rose buds to those in your floral arrangements or to choose a complementary hue.
These might be more understated, but they are still far too cute to resist! It’s the only day of your lives that you’ll be able to do it, so why not hang Mr and Mrs signs on the backs of your chairs? They’re a big favourite on both Instagram and Pinterest and it’s the little touches like these hessian Mr & Mrs hessian flags that bring all of your romantic decorations together.
If you’ve got this far, you must be wondering where on earth all the candles are. Surely no romantic reception would be complete without copious amounts of candles, large and small, flickering away enchantingly? We’ve saved one of the best for one of the last – this classic ivory candelabra is timelessly beautiful. Place one on top of each reception table for maximum impact and oh-so atmospheric lighting.
At the heart of the romance of your wedding day are you and your new spouse, so personalised decorations are definitely well worth a look. This simple slate hanging sign could decorate any area and is easily moved from ceremony to reception by a helpful bridesmaid. Barn brides, this just has to feature at your rustic wedding!
Another must-have on almost every couple’s wish list, this collection of romantic decorations wouldn’t be complete without giant illuminated letters. Give the bright lights an atmospheric twist by choosing ones made from rustic wood and with large bulbs to create a totally romantic glow. Positioned beside your dance floor or bar, they’ll light up the room!
