How To Decorate A Large Wedding Space

If your wedding venue is a large space it can easily feel too big for your wedding even when it’s full with your wedding guests. High ceilings and big empty spaces can easily be fixed by decorating the room. Here are some tips ad ideas for you to use for your wedding.

Remember though, check with your venue first what you can and cannot do decoration wise. You may want to hang flowers down from the ceiling but are unable to. Talk to your wedding planner at your venue so you can work together to create your dream wedding space.

If you’re wedding venue has a high ceiling it can often feel to spacious and echoey. Create the illusion of a lower ceiling with string lights. This technique can also be used to line walls if you have a wide room to close the room a bit (see the Mansfield Traquair image). Not only does this make the space feel more intimate, it also creates pretty and romantic lighting. I love the look of fairy lights everywhere, it makes everything feel so dreamy.

Draping gives the same low ceiling effect as the lights does. It’s a simple and elegant design and depending on the company you hire from you can add fairy lights into the draping.

Hanging Decorations

There are many different styles of hanging decorations for you to choose from, from paper honeycombs to bunting to flowers. It’s also a great way to inject some colour into your decor, especially if you are in a marquee; the contrast of bright colours against a white backdrop will look stunning.

Make It Tall

Tall decorations like trees or balloons fills up an empty space. You don’t need many of them to look good but they look effective when in the venue. They can add colour as with the Bubblegum Balloons or add an gentle elegance as with the Crescent Moon Trees. Remember to keep table decorations short as you don’t want the room to look overcrowded with decorations.
