Vintage furniture, however perfect it may be for a wedding reception, may be harder to find than your typical table and chairs – especially if you’re looking for a specific color or style. I don’t really think I have any vintage chairs lying around. But, with the vintage theme becoming increasingly popular among brides, there are now places that you can rent this type of furniture from, according to Lifework Media Blog. They suggest checking out rentals like Found, Archive Rentals, MMD Events, Rust & Lace and Etsy. If you’re looking to buy, check out the nearest thrift store or garage sale. They’re bound to have a few unclaimed gems laying around.
If your wedding is more on the rustic side, why have your typical tables and chairs? In true country style, Pinterest suggested transforming a few hay bales into benches. What I like most about this idea is that it costs virtually nothing. Just top off the bales with a piece of your favorite fabric that coordinates with the other decor and you have a unique way for your guests to hang out.
The lighting at a wedding reception is easily the best way to set the mood and tone of the night. The right lighting can transform even the most boring room into a warm and whimsical space. Why do you think a guy’s go-to move is to light candles? It’s all about the lighting.
J&M Entertainment suggested texture patterns for your reception. These designs of light can be displayed on the surface of a tent or wall to bring a bit of personality to your reception.
My bride-to-be absolutely loves the idea of hanging paper lanterns for a creative way to warm up the space and really evoke a romantic mood. This can work both indoors and outdoors. Even I can admit that after scouring Pinterest, I’m also convinced.
