room w candles rose centerpiecesDisclaimer: the best way to make your wedding venue elegant is to find a Wisconsin wedding venue that is, well, elegant. With that beautiful, elegant wedding backdrop, you have different options and details for elegant wedding decor that can make your Big Day the elegant occasion you’ve always dreamed of. Creating that elegant atmosphere is all cake with windowin the details of your elegant wedding décor:

Cupcakes. Once viewed as a child’s birthday treat, cupcakes have now been taken to a whole new level (just look at our Facebook page for a beautiful example of elegant cupcakes). Cupcakes serve as an elegant detail when decorated properly (perhaps in lace, diamonds or pearls?) and incorporated into your overall wedding decor.

Candles. There are so many different variations of elegant candle table settings. Brides can use flowers, pearls, diamonds, lace or roses to complement the arrangement. Candles are a beautiful part of an evening celebration or ceremony decor. If you choose an elegant wedding venue with space for your wedding ceremony and reception, you can bring the same candle décor and soft light from your ceremony to reception.

UntitledPearls. Pearls have long been associated with weddings, and continue to be an integral part of elegant wedding décor. From cupcakes to centerpieces, pearls are a versatile element of elegant wedding décor. Specifically, in an elegant wedding venue, pearls can wrap around your flower bouquets, drape around vases of flowers and roses on the tables, wrap around candles, be a part of your bridesmaids’ hairpieces, cover the first letter of your last name—the opportunities are endless as part of elegant wedding décor.

Diamonds. “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” take on a whole new meaning—and create a list of endless possibilities—as part of elegant wedding décor. Combined with an elegant wedding venue and the right lighting, diamonds can create an elegant atmosphere at your wedding. Diamonds can wrap your bouquets, shine on your cake, gleam on top of a mirror at your wedding reception—really, diamonds can be used anywhere in your elegant wedding décor.

If you want to choose vendors that can create the elegant wedding décor details (such as the cupcakes or cake), choose an elegant wedding venue in Wisconsin that has an open vendor policy. Elegant wedding venues with open vendor policies, such as 1451 Renaissance Place, allow brides and grooms to select vendors that can create the elegant wedding décor details they want and bring them into the wedding venue (as opposed to wedding venues that only allow certain vendors). This policy allows you to choose vendors that can create the elegant wedding décor in an elegant wedding venue that makes all your wedding day dreams come true.

We’re honoring these beautiful occasions with our favorite décor that has decked our hall:

  • 310490_10150434622281803_1655992384_nLighted centerpieces. These centerpieces are a non-traditional and beautiful way to set the mood of your party. These centerpieces can be reminiscent of dandelions in the summer, snowflakes in the winter or just a modern touch to your elegant affair.
  • 600458_10151696105381803_1494543194_nBright colors. Colors are a great way to capture the essence of your colorful personalities or the season of your occasion. Done correctly, bright colors can be an elegant touch for a very colorful couple or a wedding with a season theme, such as a winter or autumn wedding. For a winter wedding, think blues, reds or maroon. Summer and spring? Consider green or colors of the beach. Autumn-themed weddings bring the Wisconsin fall colors in. Don’t feel you have to use seasons to bring in colors, just look for inspiration in your favorite bright colors like they did for this party.
