After you have decided between the Los Angeles wedding venues for your reception and picked the one that most suits your needs, like size, catering menu, and DJ packages, you now have one more crucial decision: how to decorate.
Now it would be easy to say, “I’ll just throw some streamers up, find some mood lighting, and that will be it! Easy Peasy!”
Or, you may be thinking something more akin to, “Hire a professional decorator!”
Both of these answers seem practical and simple. They are both also rather short-sighted and exist in a magical land where confetti grows on trees.
Here are some arguments for the options of doing it yourself or hiring a third party to decorate.
Do It Yourself Decorating
Some women, and I suppose men too, have their ideal weddings planned out down to the most minute details from the time they are 10 years old. While budgetary constraints may not allow these things to happen perfectly, there does exist some absolutely perfect reception being held within the Los Angeles wedding venues of the imagination.
In this scenario, you may want to decorate yourself, as a wedding planner cannot begin to fathom the precision required to seat every guest exactly where your mind perceives them.
Plus, you will save money by forgoing this extra expense.
Hire a Professional
Planning a wedding is a HUGE deal. That’s why the best wedding planners get paid the big bucks. That doesn’t mean you cannot do it yourself, but it does mean you may want to consider some outside consultation.
Your Los Angeles banquet hall will most likely have a staff that is able to make your fantasies come true, as well as incorporate some of their own ideas. They know the space, what works and what doesn’t, so you can rest assured that your best interests are covered.
In addition, you will not have to deal with the added stress of doing your decorating. Getting married is already difficult enough; there is no need to add more responsibilities.
The simplest solutions are typically the best, and so it is with wedding planning: compromise.
Do not leave the entire task of decorating to yourself, nor should you push it off on someone else. Consult the staff of the reception hall for their opinions, while including many of your own. This will be the best way to ensure that you remain included in the process, you keep the cost down, and your special day will be unforgettable.
