You need to be setting the scene for your wedding reception from the word go…

And that means thinking about the entrance decor and the afterall it is the way to where all the fun is going to be happening.

Think about it. If you’re marrying in a hotel, ramp up the drama and make sure guests know they’ve arrived by dressing up your wedding reception doorway. Maybe put a couple of elegant topiary trees tied with ribbon on either side.

If you’re marrying outdoors in the summer, create a sense of expectation by lining the pathway to your event with lanterns of flickering and atmospheric candles. Canny brides are already using these subtle tricks. And our stylists have all the props you’re looking for – and some you may not have thought of.

How are you going to dress up your entrance way?
