Decorating ideas: grouping en masse

Want to really make a bold statement at your reception or ceremony? One of my favorite tricks is to use one object en masse. By repeating the same object over and over you can create a powerful impression on your guests and more importantly, on you and your spouse. And let’s not forget, the effect looks great in pictures. Oftentimes, it can be better for your budget because you’re ordering multiple items and retailers will often lower the price for you. And if you can get it wholesale, even better!

These images above were themes that I considered at my own reception. Top picture: hydrangeas are big and full and can create a beautiful sculptural installation at the altar or around the cake. Middle picture: bulbs! The Grammery Park Hotel commissioned artist Annika Newell of The Design Element Studio to create an installation in their lounge. She used 16,000 bulbs to create this sculpture. Bottom picture: Ok, agreed, it might be a little creepy to feature a death scene for a wedding idea (Romeo and Juliet) but bear with me. Can’t you envision this at the altar or in an intimate reception setting? – Brittany
