Clear Chiavari chairs are more popular today than today than ever, a clear chair with a fuchsia, Tiffany blue or any colored chair pad will accent your table wonderfully and bring in some color with the seat cushion to accent your flowers.
Quite a few wedding receptions are adding furniture groupings to add a more relaxed feel to the event, maybe less seating with smaller tables and some furniture to keep the guests mingling and not just sitting in one spot all night.
Dance floors are a major decision on what will go with your wedding look and decor. For a more natural wedding Oak parquet dance floor will match wonderfully, for something more clean white with crystal maybe try a Black and White check dance floor to match the theme. Dance floors can be filmed with different color adhesives or monograms today, even a Mirrored finish with colored lights can change your dance floor colors throughout the night, your guests will be amazed.
Feasting tables or kings tables are very common in today's weddings, usually paired 2 or 3 together in a row to allow room for your caterer to serve, is a great look. Having the dance floor in the center surrounded by feasting tables is a popular design as long as the ceremony space provides enough room, it gives a terrific garden wedding look.
White satin drape along the walls of a ballroom or the sides of any tent can be added along with colored LED panels to give the room a soft hue in either blue's pinks or amber along with votives on the tables is a terrific look and feel.
Gobo lights on the ceiling can add a certain feel to your wedding, there are so many images that can be transformed to ceiling like flowers, damask patterns, monograms and shapes this will add to the soft LED colors along the walls to give your event a special touch.
Crystal beads and crystal chandeliers are very popular today, years ago brass chandeliers were the trend, today it's crystal. LED lights used to up light the crystal hoops are a fabulous touch to add some soft lighting.
Many brides today want something more "out of the box" for their wedding, try mixing square tables with round tables for seating, even turn the squares to more of a diamond pattern, try turning the dance floor 45 degrees to give it a diamond shape, everything less symmetrical will make your wedding the talk of the town.
Chinese lanterns are a fun way to add color to an event, they come in so many colors and sizes it's easy to add the same color overhead with the lights to match your linen colors or theme. Lanterns can be spaced evenly through out the ceiling, or staggered in different heights. Try hanging lights in clusters over the dance floor, even pearl strands of lanterns coming down from the ceiling are a great look.
Last but not least - Tuscan lighting, a great way to freely overhang lighting over seating on a lawn area or hang them from the ceiling of a tent. With clear bulbs every three feet on a black strand, Tuscan lighting is a very popular lighting alternative.
So whether it's a unique charger plate on your tables, decorative lighting, or satin drapery that adds that special touch to your wedding, best of luck on your special day.
