After you’ve selected the venue, hired your vendors and created the perfect vignettes for your wedding, now it’s time for the finishing touches to pull it all together. From curtains, to signage, decorative decor and lighting, these elements are really what your guests will remember. Here are tips to finding the perfect decor pieces to your wedding!

TIME CONSTRAINTS
Start ordering 2-3 months before your big date to ensure the decor you want is in stock and ready to ship. Sometimes decor items require production time, especially if ordering something custom like from Etsy for example. Find out their turn around time and make sure you allot a little buffer as well.

BE ‘SUPER’ SPECIFIC
I used the word ‘super’ because there are millions of options out there so the more specific you can be, the better chances of having your vision come to life. When searching inspiration on Instagram, Pinterest or Google use specific hashtags or keywords that resemble your design ascetic.

PRICE SHOP
Get quotes from other online shops but also find out if they offer bulk pricing. Another thing to keep in mind is your florist can provide a lot more than just flowers! They can supply ceremony decor, table decor, table card holders, centerpiece vessels, candle holders and the like.

KNOW YOUR RESTRICTIONS
Knowing the restrictions of your venue is imperative before placing orders so you don’t get stuck doing returns. Some venues won’t allow candles with an open flame for example. Play it safe and check with your venue first.

WORK THEM OVERTIME
Have your decor working double duty from your ceremony to your reception. This will save you money and your guests will never know! This is especially useful for your flowers and flower vessels to go from the ceremony to the reception. You can also pull double duty from your wedding to your home. How cute would the marquee letters look in your home after the wedding?! Or picture frames for your signage to be used in your home after the wedding!

With so many great sales going on for the holidays, now is the perfect time to toast to her engagement and spoil your bestie! For her honeymoon I absolutely love these Miss to Mrs luggage tags and Just Married flip flops to wear in the sand.

If you are planning on splurging on the bride-to-be, get her something new with these Jimmy Choo  wedding shoes. They are marked down almost 50% off right now! And for the bride that wants to soak in the moment and joy of her engagement, get her this book on stuff every bride should know to get her prepared for wedding planning and this ‘Does this ring make me look engaged?’ mug. Perfect for her Instagram announcement! Which one is your favorite?
