One of the most hair-raising, soul-stirring and adventure-filled parts of the wedding planning journey is trying to find the perfect venue for your reception. It’s closing your eyes and picturing that moment you and your soulmate walk into your dream space to whoops, cheers, claps and the sound of clinking glasses, all of it so loud the roof threatens to be lifted off. But just like staring at the menu of some newly-launched restaurant, the amount of choice can make your knees tremble and mind whir; a menu that’s full of pretty garden pavilions, hotel ballrooms, industrial lofts, rustic old farm barns and so much more. It’s overwhelming. The wedding venue you decide on will have the biggest impact on your bid day, the atmosphere, the feels and vibe, the moments that happen and all the memories that follow, and that’s overwhelming.
Thankfully, deciding on a space doesn’t have to mean taking it as it is. Not at all. Whether you want to give your chosen venue a few tweaks and delicate touch to suit your personalities and style or you want to perform a total overhaul, there are so many ways you can revamp your venue space and make it completely your own, unique to you, each tiny little detail sprinkled with splashes of your love story no matter way your eyes wander.
Yes, you will want to run your ideas past your wedding planner and venue manager before you commit to any big and beautiful installations or drop-dead-gorgeous décor pieces, you know, just in case. But before you get to this stage, you need your imagination to spark.
So, with that in mind, we’ve pulled together some amazingly simple ideas that will give this amazing first chapter of your story the personal touch it deserves:
This is your wedding day.

It’s about making your wedding space yours, in every way possible. So think about what makes you you. Think about what makes you and your love that one-of-a-kind couple because, once you know that, you will be able to transform your venue in the most perfect way possible.
