It’s no secret, we love an outdoor wedding. But, with Florida living, you have to be prepared for unexpected weather changes. And if you have spent any time in the Sunshine State, you know that come spring and summer, the rain is almost a guarantee. So, making your usual Plan B as your Plan A is the best bet. And lucky for you, we have some of the most breathtaking ballroom venues around, so come with us as we talk ballroom weddings and all they have to offer.

 

UP, UP AND AWAY…

Many times, the challenge with a ballroom is “filling it up.” But, this is where you need to think onward and upward. Use the vertical space to create a “fuller” illusion. Topiaries, candelabras, and tall vases with floral are great pieces to use in your reception dΓ©cor. Alternating between tall and table-level centerpieces adds even more visual interest and keeps the room from feeling too crowded.

Also, look up! You have a celling, so use it! By hanging greenery installations, lights, or floral, you can transform a ballroom wedding into an intimate space. We love the whimsical look that the draping of the greenery, lights, and fabric created at this Selby Gardens Wedding. Pure magic!

 

THE GREAT DIVIDE…

One of the awesome things about hosting your wedding in a ballroom is all the space you have. So, let’s use it!! With this space, you can create zones for your wedding festivities. Think lounge and cocktail areas, dance floor, dining, photo booth, and so on. By creating these smaller spaces, you bring depth to your space and encourage guests to move throughout the room, opposed to staying put all night in one spot.

TO THE CEILING AND THE WALLS…

What we love the most about a ballroom wedding, is the drama it can create. Adding drapery on the walls and ceiling can transform an everyday ballroom into an intimate reception. We love when couples add twinkle lights to ceiling drapery so that a hint of light shines through or when they use uplighting to accentuate the walls. Ask your venue if they have any restrictions when it comes to lighting and drapery.

LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE…

While we love a classic ballroom wedding with gorgeous chandeliers and sconce lighting, we LOVE kicking it up a notch. First of all, candles are an easy and inexpensive way to add romance. But, adding up-lighting, twinkle lights, or even a color wash will bring your ballroom wedding to the next level. Working with your venue or DJ, you can create a room that completely embodies your wedding style and theme.
