Wedding Entrance Decorations
Some Ceremony Entrance Decoration Tips :
- Place the guest book, signing pen and beautiful fresh flowers or topiaries on a small table.
- Put a large framed engagement picture or other picture of the two of you on an easel. Guests can sign the matting instead of a guest book.
- Have guests sign a wedding scroll rather than a guest book.
- Are you getting married at Christmas time? Instead of a guest book, ask your guests to sign a Christmas tree skirt.
- Rent torches to place at the entrance. This idea is best for outdoor weddings held in the evening and adds wonderful drama.
- Decorate tree branches with small white lights (best for evenings).
- If you have steps leading up to the site, place inexpensive pots of flowers to the sides of each (or every other) step.
- If you are using a theme, find a large item that fits with your theme to place at the entrance. This gives your guests an idea of what’s ahead.
- Have your immediate families (who are not in the wedding party) stand at the entrance and welcome each guest as they enter.
- Place potted trees (real or silk) on either side of the entrance. Decorate each one with small white lights. Some nurseries will rent plants to you.
- Make colorful wedding programs explaining what will take place during your wedding ceremony. Present them to guests as they arrive or fan them out on a table. You may also include things like words of thanks, bridal party participants, love poems, a story of how the two of you met, and pictures, etc. A map to the reception site may also be included.
- Decorate any banisters, railings or columns with ivy garlands, swags of flowers,tulle and/or white lights.
- Two large clusters of colorful balloons will also create a striking entrance. These clusters can be placed into large potted plants or set in any corner. Tie a 6 – 8 foot length of curling ribbon to helium-filled balloons. Gather several balloons together & tie to a can of food. Cover the can of food with fabric & add a colorful bow.
