Weddings are often the biggest day of your life! Pomp, circumstance, your white dress, loved ones, great music and food, and oh . . . the decorations! Wedding decorations can either be the most important thing in the world to you, or the last thing you think of. We believe they’re something you should really spend a lot more time thinking about, and here’s why!
Wedding Decorations Are An Investment
Getting married will be one of the best days of your life. You spend so much time planning the day, and of course it will turn out amazing. It’s extremely worth the invested time thinking about the day and about your wedding decorations, because you’ll have photos and memories from that day forever.
You’ll always fondly remember walking into your reception hall and seeing all of your loved ones at their tables, with the centerpieces and the lighting just right and the music playing beautifully!
Doing your research and finding the best wedding decoration company around is well worth your time. You want to get the most for your money while still creating an incredibly beautiful wedding!
Wedding Decor Varies Widely
One of the biggest reasons wedding decorations deserve your attention is because they can vary so widely! Not only are there hundreds of millions of different combinations of ideas of wedding decorations, you also need to pick a theme and figure out what kind of decorations you really want.
That will help narrow it down, but there are still so many millions of things to find, from the tables and chairs, to flowers, tulle, centerpieces and so much more! We can help you narrow down your scope and help you discover the perfect wedding decorations for your big day.
Booking a wedding early can seem like an overly-cautious thing to do, but in reality it isn’t! Many people are booking their venues and other parts of their wedding earlier and earlier these days for a number of reasons.
1. Wedding Venues Get Booked Early These Days
People tend to book wedding venues earlier and earlier these days, some even more than one year in advance! That means if you want to get the perfect date, it may be in your best interest to get your date on the books more than one year in advance, even up to two if you are already engaged.
2. It May Save You Money To Book More Than One Year Out
By booking more than one year out, you may be able to save yourself some cash in the long run. The wedding venue may still use pricing from the current year since they probably haven’t set their prices for the year you’re booking in yet! This could result in serious savings for you.
3. Booking Early Allows You To Book Other Things
Once you have your venue booked, it allows you to go on with the rest of your wedding plans! You now have a location and date set to tell your photographer, caterer and other personnel, and they can begin to scope out the space available for them to work in, which is definitely to your advantage!
4. Your Venue Sets The Tone For Your Wedding & Decor
Once you have the venue set, you can finally take a real, long hard look at the decor and space you have available. The venue really sets the palette and tone for your decor, so booking your wedding early gives you a ton of time to get everything sorted out.

Throwing your grad a fall outdoor party as a going away present is a great idea! Their friends and family will appreciate seeing them one last time, especially if they are moving far away, but even if they will be nearby as they inevitably get busier with college courses and activities. It’s also a wonderful way to help your grad prepare for college, especially if you throw a college trunk party.
A college trunk party is a type of fall outdoor party where guests bring items which may be needed by a student – bedding, alarm clock, school supplies, posters, food, etc. The idea is for the items to fit inside of the trunk, which traditionally would have been taken to college with the grad.
Let’s take a deeper look into some reasons your grad can benefit from a fall outdoor party before going off to college!
3 Reasons To Throw Your Grad A Going Away Fall Outdoor Party
1. It Helps Them Get The Things They Need For College
Everyone knows it’s expensive to go to college, and that’s before the cost of tuition. Room and board, books, clothes and all the furniture and home items needed can add up fast. And since it’s your grad’s first time being on their own, they won’t have much to take with them.
Hosting a fall outdoor party with a trunk theme can really help them be prepared, and help your family and community send them to college and defray the cost to you. When you send out invitation for your trunk party, be sure to explain what it is, as many people may not have attended one before.
2. It’s A Way To See Their Hometown Friends And Family One Last Time
It will be fun for your graduate to see their family and friends on last time before either heading out of town or diving into a more advanced curriculum.
A great way to help your grad remember their last fall outdoor party before heading off to college is with photos! Set up an area where people can take a photo with your grad, and then print them all off into an album for your grad to take with them. This will make the first year at college a little less lonely.
3. It’s A Great Excuse For A Fun Party!
A going off to college fall outdoor party is a great time, and can be made extra special with some forethought!
Your guests will of course want to eat, but you can make it more fun by serving fun fair food, like hot dogs, nachos, Sno-Kones, cotton candy, slushies and more! Want to serve up a bunch of grilled chicken, burgers or steaks? You may want to make the line move faster with a large, high-quality rented grill for your fall outdoor party!
And everybody likes music; be sure to keep the party moving with a nice karaoke machine, or a speaker you can attach your iPod to!

Ceiling decor can easily be overlooked; you’ll of course be concentrated on food, tables, chairs, music and a million other things which can grab your attention when planning a big event. But don’t let ceiling decor get away from you!
Now that you’re aware of it, take some time to plan for your ceiling as you approach your event, whether it’s a wedding, graduation party, birthday or anniversary!
5 Ceiling Decor Ideas To Spice Up Your Next Event
One of the most important ceiling decor ideas you can use is lighting. String lights, chandeliers, patio lights, pole lamps, all of these can make your event a hit! Different types of lights can set the mood for your event: classy, funky, rustic, etc. Don’t rely on the flourescent lighting in your event hall to get your guests in mood to party!
Speaking of lighting, uplighting is a more recent trend and can really make a difference in the atmosphere of a party. Uplighting can be classy or casual, with a large variety of colors available. Uplighting is basically a spotlight which is set near the wall, which lights up both the wall as well as the ceiling directly above it, splashing light outward from that point. Uplighting is a unique ceiling decor idea which can add a lot to your event.
Of course, light isn’t the only way to decorate a ceiling. Fabric drapery is a great way to soften rooms which may have hard lines, like a conference room or convention center. Drapery can be made of a number of different fabrics and colors, and can be tied at multiple points in a room for different ceiling decor designs.
We know, columns sit on the floor, how can they be ceiling decor? Well, columns at Geyer can run all the way up to the ceiling, or, if you don’t have a ceiling, can serve as the anchor point for lighting or drapery, creating a false ceiling effect. How cool!
5. A Canopy (if you don’t have a ceiling, get one!)
And if you really do not have a ceiling and want one, say at an outdoor event, rent a tent or canopy! At Geyer we have a ton of canopies to choose from to accommodate all sizes of parties, so don’t worry about not having a ceiling, you can still use all of these great ceiling decor ideas!
