There will ALWAYS be tears (happy and sad) at a wedding. Whether we are witnessing a father walk down his eldest daughter down the aisle, listening to a couple recite handwritten vows, dancing along to a surprise performance by the maid of honor, or yes, even drooling over the entire ambiance of the venue, our Decor Editor has rounded up a series of sences so stunning they actually choked us up a bit. Beware: grab the tissues now!
Need receipes for transfoming a netural reception space into the beautiful scene you have in your head? WeddingWire’s FallBook 2014 will walk you through four key areas that are often overlooked — the welcome table, the lounge, the bar, and the sweetheart table — and show you how to outfit each according to three different styles, using rental furniture and shoppable accessories.

Been there, seen that — numbering each of your reception tables one through let’s say 25 might be the traditional go-to choice, but you don’t have to go that route! Feel free to steal some of our recently-married couples ideas of oh-so brilliant names like robin (birds), recess (school-themed), daffodil (flowers), dewey (beaches), farenheit 451 (books), charlotte (cities), sycamore (trees), or the notebook (movies) here.

In case you want to take a break from checking off items on your late-night wedding to-do list, consider getting crafty! You can create customizable bunting or banner signs for various parts of your reception decor. Imagine hanging them from the ceiling of your venue, from the front of your sweetheart table or dessert display, or posing with them for thank-you cards to be sent post-honeymoon.

Who knew that something so simple like picture frames could make such a lasting impact on your wedding day decor, especially if it’s shabby chic themed! Break a welcome message down into individual words and arrange them in a display on trees, fill them flowers for a ceremony backdrop, tack your escort cards in them for guests to find their seats, add family photos in them to honor loved ones not present, or place them around centerpieces to create a masterpiece. Our Decor Editor’s best advice: remember they DO have a purpose!
