So, You’re Getting Married What Do You Do Now?

It’s one of the happiest moments you’ve ever experienced. The love of your life got down on one knee and popped the big question. Will you marry me? You’re so excited and happy it’s the moment you’ve always dreamed of. But now the work begins, you have a wedding to plan and the major question is where do you begin? So, you’ve bought the dress, ordered the cake, booked the venue, picked out the invitations, decided on whether you want a DJ or a live band. But now here come the smaller details that will set your wedding apart from the rest, the general décor. Do you want your wedding to be more rustic looking? Do want it more classic? Traditional white? Darker hues perhaps? All of that depends on the linens, overlays, napkins, tables and other décor and décor accessories. This may sound overwhelming, but here’s a mini guide on how to choose the best décor to make your special day as beautiful as possible.

Here are some examples of questions you may have about planning your upcoming nuptials:

What kind of tables will I need? Are there sizes?

How many will I need?

Are there multi-use tables? Will I need backup tables?

What is Napkin ring/ Do I need a Napkin ring?

What is a Charger?

First of, you might want to start with which tables you want for your wedding; this will rely on how many people are invited to your big day. You can choose a standard 120-inch table which seats around 8 people, or you may opt for a 132-inch table which seats about 10, ideal for larger weddings. If you’re planning on having a high table for your wedding party to be seated at, a standard buffet table which is 8-feet would be ideal.  You may opt for extra tables as well as they could be used for wedding gifts, maybe a guest book, or a table for your wedding cake. These tables will be known as your signature tables. After you’ve decided which tables you’ll need and how many, you get to do the fun part, deciding which colours are you going to choose to decorate the wedding.

After choosing what colours, or theme you want for the wedding whether it be white and blue, or rustic or classic, you get to look into linens and overlays. Currently on trend are floor length linens and overlays, both available at Chair Décor. Sheer runners are also making a comeback and are a great look for any table. Once again, which one you choose will depend on the colour scheme or theme of the wedding. Furthermore, you can choose which napkins will go with the linens on your tables, some may choose an exact match the linens some may opt for a complementary colour, for those who have a specific colour scheme, they may elect to stay within those colours.
