Let’s be honest: No venue is perfect out of the box. Maybe you chose a venue that is great…with the exception of mounted deer heads or no air conditioning. Or, maybe—due to budget or location reasons—you settled for a venue that’s less than ideal.
The bad news is that many venues have strict rules against taking down “fixed” décor. The good news? With a few tweaks and some imagination, your venue can be transformed into a masterpiece. Here are just a few ways you can add an ambiance to your wedding venue:
Cover “fixed” décor with floral walls, lighting or large signs
Add string lights, table lamps and candles when possible to brighten up dark spaces
Use patio heaters or rented fans to help control temperatures
Hang ceiling drapery in white or bright colors to hide fixtures and drab ceilings
Swap included furniture for upscale lounge furniture for a more elegant look
Showcase an abundance of bright florals to freshen up plain spaces
Pipe in aromatherapy scents for venues that may have a lingering odor
Leverage uplighting to add an entirely different vibe to an otherwise unattractive banquet hall
Wedding planners are masterful at finding ways to work around existing décor at wedding venues (so if you haven’t invested in one yet, it’s probably worth it!).
