Once your vows are exchanged and you’ve gotten through all your portraits and the inevitable round robin of guest hugs and kisses, you can saunter into your reception feeling much more at ease. The pressure lightens up a lot. The thing is, your reception isn’t just the place where you can raise your glasses, dance the night away, and eat to your heart’s content – it’s also the place where you’ll spend the greatest night (or afternoon, love us a good brunch wedding!) of your lives with the people who bring you the most joy. So! You’ll want those photos to look festive, like you’re all gathering for THE most special occasion.
Granted, every venue has its own dose of charm – be it its romantic space for the ceremony, its incredibly picturesque grounds for pics, or its built-in beauty, which ends up being the talk of everyone on your guest list. But you can amplify all the over your aesthetic just by turning up the decor in your reception. Some imaginative lighting and some playful hanging installations do so much to really bring life and energy into the reception room, and if that’s not what we all need after all this COVID-19 craziness, then we don’t know what is!
Since we’re all still doing our part and staying home to drive out this virus and its devastation, we thought we’d play a fun look & find game (those of us who have kids were feeling particularly inspired). After you take a peek at the below pictures, take a guess at what we’re loving the most – these are focal points that will not, and we repeat, will not go unnoticed.
Our exclusive Style Me Pretty shop is teeming with a ton of items that’ll match some of these vibes expressly. So, happy shopping!
