Ideas on Transforming Venues for Wedding Receptions

It seems these days that many couples are paying for their own wedding which means they might be on a tight budget. They are getting creative in their planning and doing a lot of DIY projects along with finding good deals on venues. One option is having it at the church you are a member of. A wedding I just coordinated in San Antonio is exactly what they did. They had the reception at the church’s Parish Hall. The room was pretty basic and we knew that having other focal points throughout the room was going to be needed to add to the ambiance of a wedding.

I thought it would be fun to show you the behind the scenes of how the room was transformed for the transformation at receptionwedding_reception_preparing_3wedding_reception_preparing_4 - Copywedding_reception_preparing_5wedding_reception_preparing_6wedding_reception_preparing_7wedding_reception_preparing_8wedding_reception_preparing_9Legendary Linens did a great job in creating a focal point on the ceiling with lights and drapery. They also added uplights around the room and a canopy for the bride and groom’s sweetheart table. The couple decided to add some elegance with china, chargers, chair covers and sashes as well. Throughout the room there were added touches of pictures, antique items, flowers, lanterns, candles, a slide show and more. For a wedding on a budget, it turned out beautiful!
