Paying for a reception can be expensive especially when decorating the reception hall. However, it is possible to save a lot of money by investing in gorgeous Christmas lights and using them when decorating the reception hall.
Christmas Lights Are Inexpensive
People who are on a budget when decorating their reception hall should consider high-quality Christmas lights. These average about $200 or so when decorating a home and can cost as little as $100. When decorating a reception hall, they are likely to cost around the same. As a result, a person can save hundreds of dollars on their lighting bills.
Don't worry about Christmas lights looking cheap in the reception hall. They can be used in many different ways that create wonderful and surprising styles. As a result, a reception can look great while not breaking the bank.
They Can Be Used In Unique Ways
Before haphazardly throwing Christmas lights around the reception hall, it is important to come up with fun ideas for using them. For example, they can be used to highlight certain areas of the hall (such as the present table) to draw visitors to the area. They can also be used to line up the walkway where the bride and groom will enter.
Hanging them can be tricky for the uninitiated, so it is a good idea to get an adhesive tape (such as 3M plastic tabs) or clothes pins to hang them up in hard-to-reach areas. Create fun shapes with the lights, including shapes of the bridge and groom, to truly make the wedding reception hall stand out.
Important Considerations When Decorating
After considering a few design ideas for the reception hall, it is important to use the lights in innovative and exciting ways. For example, the frame of the reception hall can be highlighted with Christmas lights to attract the eye and create a gorgeous look. The bulbs should all be white as a way of highlighting the joy and wonder of the event.
It is also important to take the time to check the location of the electrical plugs in the hall. The owner of the hall should have a diagram for this purpose. Spend time planning out how the lights will be plugged in and use decorative items (such as tables or photo displays) to hide the bulky plugs and wires in the outlets.
By following these tips, a person can create a gorgeous look for a wedding reception without spending a lot of money. Make sure to spend a lot of time considering the reception hall before implementing any of these ideas. In this way, you can create a wonderful look without making any mistakes.
