If you’ve chosen to jet abroad to tie the knot by the blissful palm-fringed Cyprus coastline, you’re already one step away from experiencing your dream wedding. And no doubt, as you gear yourselves up for the big day, you’ll be spending a fair amount of time thinking about how to decorate the venue to make your special day as memorable and impressive as possible. Here at Kanika Hotels & Resorts, our dedicated wedding coordinators are on hand to help you every step of the way with meticulous care and attention. But you may want to consider a few of our handy tips before you draw up the final plan!
- Make sure the décor blends in with the setting & wedding theme
If you’ve chosen an outdoor location right by the water’s edge, like the stunning Elias Beach Hotel Limassol, then you may be inclined to go for a Mediterranean style theme, with blue hues and white details. If, however, you’re going to be tying the knot in the lush gardens of the Olympic Lagoon Resort Agia Napa, then a tropical theme with splashes of vibrant green and yellow could be just the thing to add the wow factor to your special occasion. At the brand new Amavi couples-only hotel, you may want to celebrate intimacy and togetherness in chic minimal style. Once you know what your main theme will be, everything else, including the invites, cakes, and everything else in between, can tie into this.
- Consider the guest experience
Dreamy décor may be all well and good, but you’ll also want to be a little practical. The guest seating arrangement will need to be clearly printed and displayed near the entrance of your dinner reception, while the place cards on the tables will need to be equally efficient to make it easy for the guests. It certainly doesn’t mean you can’t be creative however, as there are all sorts of fonts and fun designs you can use to really jazz up the special occasion.
- Don’t be afraid to set a clear-cut budget
You may dream of thousands of flowers adorning the area where you’ll be saying ‘I do’, but you don’t want to set your mind on something that may not be affordable for you. The best thing that you can do is sit down to discuss an approximate budget with your other half, that will give your allocated wedding planner the opportunity to suggest what’s available in the given price range.
- Create lifelong memories with your décor
You’ll never forget the day that you get married, but you can go the extra mile and create life-long memories with the decoration that you choose. A unique board where guests can pin Polaroid photos from the wedding day always works a treat, or you can create a Polaroid guest book. And what about taking your beloved guests down memory lane? You may want to pay tribute to your closest friends and family members, by placing photos of them in an artistic collage!
