WONDERFUL WEDDINGS: HOW TO DECORATE YOUR FLOOR FOR A HOME WEDDING
Did you know that there are over 2 million weddings every year? If you've always dreamed of a winter wedding, there's nowhere cozier than your own home. Not only can a home wedding help cut your costs, but the event will be more intimate and special.
Here are 5 home wedding ideas you can use to transform your floor space!
UPDATE YOUR FLOORING FOR A WEDDING RECEPTION AT HOME
One of the best tips for making your home look and feel its best is to update your flooring. If you have carpet, making the switch to hardwood flooring or any hard surface option can breathe new life into the environment.
Wood looks fabulous in any home, and it also adds extra warmth to homes built in cooler climates. The rustic feel of the wooden texture, along with its naturally earthy tones that contrast with the winter decorations, will guarantee to stun every guest that steps foot into your house.
CONSIDER USING FAKE SNOW TO DECORATE
If you're planning a winter wedding, chances are you love snow. While you can't bring snow inside, you can buy realistic decorative snow. Get creative with where you sprinkle the fake snow: use it to create an aisle, dust it around statement décor, and much more. Not only will it add a beautiful, modern look to the home, but it will also make it feel more realistic to a winter wonderland theme!
COZY HOME RECEPTION IDEAS: BRING THE OUTDOORS INSIDE
Why stop at snow when there are so many other beautiful decorations nature can provide?! While you can forage pretty sprigs, pinecones, berries, and flowers yourself to save money, you can also buy local at an affordable price. Pansies, holly, and poinsettias are a few of the many gorgeous flowers that bloom in the winter.
Another way to warm up the ceremony, especially when it comes to where you will exchange your vows, is with a new area rug! Use this as the focal point on where you and your partner will stand to share your vows, exchange rings, and so on. As a bonus, you’ll have an amazing area rug you can use in your new home as you celebrate your new life together!
DON'T FORGET TO LIGHT UP YOUR WINTER HOME WEDDING
Lighting is essential for weddings; It sets the mood, allows for high-quality pictures, and adds warmth.
You don't have to reserve your lights for the ceilings and walls. One great idea for a winter wedding is to use white Christmas lights to create walkways or highlight the perimeter of the room.
If you have enough Christmas lights, you could dim the main lighting after the ceremony. The soft glow from these lights creates the perfect ambience for romantic dancing.
USE A STATEMENT TREE
Turn your house wedding into a winter wonderland with a statement tree! Having a Christmas tree decorated to the brim is one of the best accents to your winter wedding. It's inviting, dazzling, and can even add a fresh scent to the room. A nice touch to your tree could be a custom ornament that displays the date of your wedding ceremony.
The best part about having a tree is that guests can leave their wedding gifts under it without them looking clunky or out of place. If you love the holidays, having a winter wedding can feel like a second Christmas.
