Information of Decorating For Weddings

Nine Months Ahead

Once the budget has been set, it is time to think about the fun aspects. By now, couples have already secured the venue and know what they have to work with. The color scheme should be finalized at this time. Look through some bridal magazines to get some ideas for the best colors based on the season of the event. This is also a time to visit a florist to discuss what the options are within the budget and seasonal availability.

Six Months Ahead

This is the time to begin shopping for materials. Scour home décor shops and online vendors to compare prices and to see what is available. For those who are making all of their own components, such as centerpieces, begin working on those six months ahead of time. For many weddings, brides will collaborate with bridesmaids and work together to get this work done more quickly. It can be a fun pre-wedding event!

Two Months Ahead

During this period, it is time to make a final evaluation of what has been completed and what is left to do. Inventory everything, from centerpieces to backdrops to boutonnieres and make sure everything is ready to go. Make sure that these decorations are stored in a safe, dry place to prevent any damage.

Two Weeks Ahead

Crunch time is here, and it is time to get ready to decorate. Check with the venue to double-check any policies regarding fastening items to the walls and other areas. For instance, some places will not allow any holes in the walls, so thumb tacks or push pins cannot be used. Others may not allow anything sticky or tacky to be used, so make sure to be fully aware of the rules.

Once everyone knows what is and is not allowed, take a trip to the craft store to make sure all of the items needed to decorate are ready to go. Think about getting things like floral wire, string, staplers and so on to affix everything.

About Eco Weddings

1. Use recycled products. Making paper not only takes valuable trees out of our ecosystem, but is also an energy-intensive process that creates a large amount of waste. Many companies offer eco-chic products such as wedding invitations, save-the-date cards and the like, using recycled paper, paper made from wood substitutes, and organic based inks.

2. Eliminate paper altogether. Many savvy couples are opting to use wedding websites to present all the details of their wedding to their guests and collect their RSVPs. There are many wedding templates available on-line that are free and easy to use that will help you to create your personal wedding site.

3. Use Local Vendors. Supporting the local economy keeps transportation related costs and impacts down. Inquire with the vendors you are considering how they embody environmentally sound strategies.

4. Photography-go digital. Fact: digital photography is much less harmful to the environment then film photography which uses harsh chemicals and wastes much paper, film, and throw away prints.

5. Use in season, locally grown food. The average meal in North America travels 2,200 kilometers. You can decrease the negative impacts caused by the transportation of food by choosing in-season produce from local vendors. Locally made wine, beer, and other beverages can also add unique flavor to your menu.

6. Your flowers. Using local, seasonal flowers lowers fuel consumption and is often less costly than ordering exotic species that need to be transported long distances and require chemical preservatives. Try working with your florist to design simple arrangements that employ a natural look using pinecones, stones, bark and driftwood to decorate your venue.

7. Eco-chic Gifts & Favors. Registering with an eco-friendly company like the Green Bride Guide, can support sustainable business and also educate your guests about eco-chic products. Some organizations will donate a portion of the sales from the purchase of your wedding presents to worthy non-profit groups and social causes. Packets of wild flower seeds or tree saplings make for conscientious favors that can be planted in honor of your love.

8. The Ring. Purchasing “conflict free” diamonds, recycled gold and fair trade gemstones insure that your lovely ring does not have a bloody past. Ask to see proof of origin and certification to be certain it was not acquired from countries with a history of human abuse.
