Good Afternoon my preciousness. Today’s post is about how to dress up a dry hire venue. For those of you who are not familiar with the term dry hire it simply means a blank canvas. So How can one dress up a dry hire venue? Here are a few ideas:
Table Linen:Instead of using the traditional white table cloths and napkins, hire table linen with patterns and a bit of sparkle. Better still if your grandma, aunt or family friend knows how to sow , why not create your own, you can buy materials at your local fabric store or online.
Charger Plates:If you want to create an elegant and sophisticated wedding style then I would suggest using gold or silver beaded charger plates but if your look is vintage you could use doilies.
Stationery: Be creative with your menus and place settings, use lace, diamante and wall paper to add chic and style to your tables.
Wine Glasses: a different colored wine glass will add interest to your tables, also use cutlery that adds interest. Its the little small details that make a huge difference.
Chairs: depending on the look you are going for, chavari or ghost chairs will make your reception venue look elegant.The one advantage of using chavari or ghost chairs is that they don’t need to have chair sashes or covers.
Candles: an abundance of candles will add a gorgeous glow to any room. Have as many as you possibly could, tea lights,votive candles, pillar candles, taper candles etc… but remember to ask if candles are allowed at your venue some venues will not allow you to use them. If candles are not allowed use led candles they are just as good as the real ones.
Paper Lanterns: two to four hundred lanterns hanging from the ceiling will give an illusion of lanterns hanging in the air and will most definitely give an instant face lift to any venue. Transforming it from flab to fab
Balloons: personally I don’t really like traditional balloons that everyone has at their weddings but there are led balloons that you could purchase online which look amazing when placed on the ceiling over the dance floor or the whole reception.
These are only a few ideas but you can just about do anything with a dry hire venue, use your imagination , think like there is no box (heard someone say that the other day and it sounded good to my soul lol)and do something out of the norm. Please share this post.
With a joyful Heart
