BLOG! Chandeliers as Reception Focal PointsAre you a bride (or a new event planner) with a million ideas and a lot of square footage, but not with unlimited funds? Trust us ~ that’s pretty much the situation at every wedding, regardless of the number of zeroes in the budget. Whether you’re styling The Ritz or upcycling a venue that needs a little love, we can help you focus your dollars where they’ll do the most good. And that will give you maximum wow! – with no ouch in the bottom line department.
Because truly, fabulous wedding and wedding reception décor doesn’t have to cost a fortune, and with a few insider tips and a focus on the hottest trends, you can make the most of your budget.
Chandeliers Make the Ceremony Space
This romantic outdoor setting is perfection with the addition of a single chandelier above the main event and two urns of pink roses. Proof that elegance does not have to mean that every inch of your venue is decorated to have a high impact space. We admit that the chandelier that’s out of focus in the foreground is probably pretty fabulous, too, but a single chandelier can do the heavy lifting all by herself to make a focal point of the ceremony tent.
Chandeliers and The Head Table
For sparkling inspiration, look no further than this purple dais for the ultimate sweetheart tableau. It’s suitable for entire head table or for the ceremony itself (possibly minus the sofa) and is made almost entirely of reusable items (all but the candles, really). With a background of bead curtains and fabric, two diamond crystal columns, and multiple purple chandeliers, well, who will notice whether you had a $$$ centerpiece on each table? Because they’ll be staring at this purple fabulousness.
The Cake Table: Wow! Splurge that Earns Its Keep
As always, we really can’t say enough good things about the ways that a professional planner can work within your budget to make magic happen. And it’s no coincidence that chandeliers are a common theme of pro-planned events. One of our absolute favorite professional event designers is Tamara of Tamara Wendt Designs. This cake table is pretty much the paragon of the wow! feature genre: it’s original, innovative, gorgeous, and we’re betting that it’s the most photographed element of the wedding next to the bride. Definitely a splurge that maximizes the impact of your dollars, and again, our chandeliers (beneath the suspended tabletop) can be re-colored using LED lights.
While we’re showing you pro planners’ tricks for making the most of your money with chandeliers, we can’t help but show you another Tamara Wendt Design stunner. Three crystal chandeliers and two fabric swags bring drama and sparkle to a rural venue’s high ceilings. So many barns and cabins have high ceilings that we are always on the lookout for budget-friendly ways to use this space well. This idea makes the high ceilings a positive without wasting your assets, and with strong visual impact above, you can decorate the tables with cost effective centerpieces that focus on candles and smaller florals. A win-win for your look and your bottom line.
Whether you are flush with cash or pulling those shoestrings together, we can help you make the most of your wedding or event budget. It may be counterintuitive at first, but one of the best ways to get the most for your money is to focus your spending on a smaller number of spaces. Our products will help you do just that, whether you’re an event designer, a DIY queen or the queen of outsourcing to your planner.
