The Venue

Consider the size and look of your venue when planning your wedding day styling. The best styling works with your venue, rather than against it. Look for colours that compliment the venue decor, whilst putting your stamp on the day. Alternatively, your venue may be a blank space giving you full control over the look and feel of your day.

Your style

Pick a style that reflects you and your partner! The best way to do this and put together some Pinterest boards of wedding styling you like and pinning down what draws you to it, Is it the colour, style, venue, etc.


If you don’t like the default furniture offered by the venue, you can always look at hiring chairs, tables, crockery or glassware that work for your vision better. Not all venues can accommodate this, so be sure to speak with your venue before booking anything.

Table Styling

Your tables are a perfect place to get creative, letting your imagination run. From candles to florals, to linens, let your chosen colour palette or style/theme inspire you. Additionally, consider having fun with your seating plan, carrying through your theme from the tables.

When it comes to styling your venue we all want to make our vision come to life but a lot of this is going to be governed by the budget we have, unfortunately, we don’t all have a bank balance like Kim Kardashian. So a great tip is to try and get your venue styling with one supplier, the more you book with them the more you could save. It’s always worth asking if your preferred supplier offers packages that provide an opportunity to save. Also, don’t be afraid to shop around, there are lots of amazing companies in the wedding industry who are more than happy to help and advise on making your wedding daydream come true.


When styling your wedding venue try to avoid themes and instead select a colour palette, this will help to keep your venue décor elegant, rather than over the top or cluttered. Creating a mood board is a great way to test colours and ideas, also looking at previous weddings in your venue will help you see what works best in your space.

1. Create your own candle, flower or plant holder container by using recycled mason jars. I collect glass scented candle holders. All my family friends collect their jars and candle holders, which I clean the leftover wax from, and the mason jars.

2. Use recycled bottles of varying shapes and sizes, hang them from the ceiling to create a floral arrangement. They can be hung individually or in groups – the rule of thumb is using uneven numbers – 3, 5, 7 etc. But it is your wedding, do what you think looks the best.

3. Instead of having bunting, use the macrame holder. Fill them with flowers, Cacti or candles. Most venues have hangings along the walls.

4. Shorten the hanging length and create bouquets. Use smaller bottles or mason jars with small openings, add your flowers, etc in the jar and bride, bridesmaid hold the macrame floral holder in their hand – (your hands take the place of where you would normally hang it up on a hook)
