Lifelong WeddingsAdding personal touches to your wedding venue is a great way to incorporate the little things into your wedding day.

Dr. John Patrick Keefe II, a wedding officiant in OKC, loves to see the different decorations that his couples use to ramp up the church and reception hall. Keep reading to glean some ideas for your own wedding

  • Entrance – If you’re like most brides, your main focus is most likely going to be on the altar. Shift gears a bit and set your sights on the entrance way. Nothing looks prettier than a vintage door at the foot of the ceremony. Welcome, your guests with this whimsical and charming touch.
  • Door Trim – Add a floral touch to your church’s doorway by placing a swath of flowers above it. Imagine the look of awe and wonderment as your guests pass underneath this gorgeous floral arrangement.
  • Aisle Runner – This is your big day, and therefore you should be treated like royalty. Consider adding your own version of the “red carpet” down the aisle of your venue with a runner. The runner can be any color and style of your choosing.
  • Aisle Markers – Tie satin ribbon on the posts of aisle chairs for a smashing look. This small touch of material adds so much class to your wedding venue.
  • Altar – When it comes to your altar, be extravagant as you wish to be. You’ll have lots of photos taken of you and your groom standing at this sacred place so do it up big. Consider draping gauzy fabric over a tree in a stunning outdoor setting.
  • Table Numbers – Personalize your table numbers with a photo of you and your groom at each table. You can take it a step further by personalizing the number with a fun fact about you and your man. Your guests will love this small game of trivia!
  • Ceremony Seating – If you have to provide your own chairs for your ceremony, consider mixing and matching them. For a vintage look, gather all different styles of chairs from the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s and place them in rows at your venue or church.
  • Programs – You’re going to be shelling out a lot of money on guest programs so give them a dual purpose: make them double as fans! You can glue popsicle sticks onto the program, and guests can cool themselves in the stuffy church or reception hall.
  • Hanky Box – This is truly a darling idea! Place a box filled with charming, clean hankies at the back of the church or venue. The box should say something like “For Happy Tears.”
  • Cocktail Tables – Most people drape their cocktail tables in linen clothes and call it good. Go a step further and cinch them with a tie of greenery, satin, or raffia.
