Jul 09, 2022

After finalizing the wedding venue, the first next thing to decide is your decor. Just like everything else, deciding on your wedding decor or decor theme is a very important, but difficult task. You have to decide the color, theme, decor elements you want to incorporate, and any personalization you want to do. From hanging lamps to chandeliers and flowers, there are many things to consider when it comes to your wedding decor. 

You also don't want all your events to look similar, or totally distinctive, there should be a connection, a flow that people would be able to relate to, and especially something that reflects your love, relationship, and most importantly, you two. 

Being familiar with only fancy metallic chandeliers, lanterns, wooden crates and big flower vases in almost every other wedding have undoubtedly made the grandeur more exemplary and bold but not everybody has a similar taste or wants to create a similar vibe. The decor you pick should resonate with your perspective so that the guests can also relate to that idea.

If you are someone who can experiment with colorful, light-weight, and inexpensive decor ideas in times when intimate ceremonies are opted by many, then do consider the paper decor ideas that are not only fancy to display but also super affordable and can easily be DIY.
