The Essential Wedding Decor Checklist

Charlotte Munro Wedding's essential wedding decor checklist for couples .jpg

When you first get engaged, thinking about the big day is fun, exciting and invigorating. You might have 101 ideas on your bridesmaids, what flowers you want, and even your first dance song. But once you have a venue, and are actually getting into the details of planning your wedding, it can become a bit overwhelming. There are just so many little, but important, options to think about! Of course you don’t have to have all of these items, or any of them to actually get married! But for the couples who want to style their weddings to the max, I have created this go-to wedding checklist to keep you on track with all the decor options and ideas.

Ceremony Decor

  • Welcome sign

  • Seating instructions

  • Aisle Runner

  • Chair back decor (from foliage garlands to organza bows, there are so many options!)

  • Ceremony arch or backdrop

  • Flowers

  • Lanterns

  • Flower petals

For the Wedding Reception

Think about do you like long tables or round? If you would like to incorporate charger plates, don’t forget that they take up more room so you may need to have less people per table!

  • Table centrepieces

  • Table linen (this doesn't have to be white, hire companies provide almost any colour you can imagine)

  • Table runners (from chiffon to sequins!)

  • Table garlands

  • Table numbers/names

  • Menus

  • Favours

  • Charger plates

  • Cutlery

  • Glassware

  • Chair back décor

  • Napkins

  • Candles

And don't forget

  • Guestbook table

  • Gift table (or why not combine the two?)

  • Cake stand (and a pretty cake knife, it's in those all important pictures)

  • Dessert table

  • Bar

  • Bar Menu (why not create your own signature cocktails, your guests will have fun trying out all the options!)

  • Photo booth & props

  • Garden games

  • Lounge seating (its great to have a bit of extra seating in the evening for the older guests, and you might want to rest your feet too!)

There are so many different ways you can personalise your wedding day, each of these check list items can be customised or deleted altogether. Remember its your wedding and you can have it all your way!
