Last Updated on December 27, 2021 by Guillermina

Today, we’re going to be looking at how to transform your venue using wedding halls decorations. There are so many ways you can use decorations to make your wedding banquet hall look beautiful – no matter what the size, or the budget you have. Here are some tips and tricks to make your wedding venue a show-stopping one. Let’s take a closer look at how you can do it.

Choosing Your Wedding Venue

Choosing your dream wedding venue is one of the hardest decisions you’ll make, in terms of your wedding. You want it to reflect the style of yourselves as a couple, be the right size for the number of people you’re looking to invite, and most importantly – keep it within budget! It’s important to set a budget for everything before you look around, as it’s very easy to get lost in the magic and spend over budget quickly.

Wedding Decoration Ideas

A banquet for a wedding is becoming increasingly popular and is usually already striking before you add any of your own flairs. But how can you highlight and accentuate a banquet hall, and make it your own? We’ll be covering it all in this article.

Fairytale Chandeliers/Lights

Usually, the first thing people do when walking into a hall is lookup. So decorating your venue with chandeliers or fairy lights that flicker and give off a subtle, golden glow, will make it feel utterly magical. And completely unforgettable.

Blossom Trees

If you’re looking for a romantic, sweet vibe – blossom trees are the way forward. Usually, halls have high ceilings and lots of space to spare, so it’s important to fill that space up. What better way than with gorgeous blossom trees? They’ll not only take your guests’ breath away, but they’ll also make your venue smell beautiful too!

Draped Ceilings

It’s a known fact that drapes make everything look bigger! Not only do they look classy and elegant, but they’ll be making your venue look even grander than it already is. It’s a win-win!

Hanging Floral Arrangements

As we mentioned earlier, looking up is usually your go-to entering a hall, so what better way to wow your guests than having flower arrangements hanging above the dining tables. It will make your guests feel like they’re entering an enchanted forest…and will make for gorgeous photo opportunities.

Choose Light

While you may be set on a darker color scheme for your wedding, opting for light colors is definitely something we recommend. It makes everything look brighter, bigger, and feels much less restricting. Lighter colors often make things look bigger too – which is great if you’re getting married in a hall. It doesn’t have to be white, it can be any pastel or light color!

Tall Centerpieces

Most tables at a wedding will have a centerpiece. And if accentuating the height of your venue is what you’re looking for – tall centerpieces are a great way to do this. The bigger and grander, the better (in my opinion!).

This is such a basic idea – but it’s actually one of the best. Bunting is great for high venues and for showcasing how fabulous your venue is. The best part about bunting is that it’s usually very cost-effective, and can be reused afterward! Bunting can really make a color scheme pop.

Oversized Letters

This decoration can work almost anywhere, but it works particularly well in a hall. They come in a range of styles, colors, different bulbs, and different fonts – so you’ll definitely be able to find some that fit with the color scheme and vibe of your wedding. These are great for taking some memorable photos in front of.

Flower Walls

If you have a large hall, this may be quite expensive – but it will absolutely wow your guests! Feature flower walls look devastatingly beautiful, especially behind the top table. It highlights the happy couple, and will really make them feel the center of attention. It doesn’t have to be just flowers, it can be stems, greenery, vines – all of those will help to keep the cost down.

Paper Lanterns

I think you get it by now – hanging something from the ceiling is a great idea! If bunting or lights aren’t your things, another cheap alternative is paper lanterns. They look utterly dreamy and will give your wedding a real fairytale feel – anyone else loves Tanged?! (Tangled was actually the main theme of my own wedding!)

Interactive Desserts

These are becoming increasingly popular and are perfect if you’re getting married in a hall! You’ll likely have plenty of space, and it’s a lot of fun for the guests. So why not have a donut wall? You can usually rent a donut wall for a reasonable price and stock up on budget-friendly donuts the day before the wedding!
