Ambience Venue Styling work with hundreds of brides across the UK each year decorating venues with themes ranging from mad hatter’s tea parties to Great Gatsby-inspired celebrations! Here they reveal their top tips to decorating your venue, we hope some of their ideas will inspire you to dress your own venue.

The theme of your wedding starts with you – your dress, your tastes, your colour preferences and of course your budget! We encourage our brides to focus on co-ordinating from day one when the Save the Date cards go out to give your guests a flavour of the theme you have chosen for the day.

The way you do your decorations will be influenced by where you’re having your reception, here are our top tips to elegantly dressing your big day venue…
Hotel-Our top tip with hotels is to work with the décor of the room and think about how your colour scheme and theme will co-ordinator with the curtains, carpet colours and wall colour. Clashing colours don’t look great and we find that brides often don’t take this into account.

If you are not happy with the room décor, consider room draping. This is very romantic and not as costly as you might think. You may even be able to save money by choosing a lower-cost venue, which you can style as a blank canvas.
Barn-The best theme here is rustic, you can achieve some amazing looks with the rustic styling items now available. This year’s hot trend is hessian which would be perfect in a barn. Flower wise, large white gerberas in your centrepieces and on your top table will look great.
Country House-Less is more with this type of venue because the venue itself will be the star of the show. Decorations should be tasteful and subtle so that they enhance the venue. Often the chairs may not need covering but you can still decorate them with lace and cute chair backs.
