The wedding decorations are an essential part of your wedding day, they'll help both you and your guests relax and feel at ease.

Whether it’s a church or any other wedding venue, one of the most important things is to speak to your venue about your wedding decorations prior to buying them. Some venues will have their own rules regarding decorations, such as no candles.
Others may insist tea lights are put into holders and some may not allow confetti.
Always speak to your venue before buying any decorations, even if you think they're a bargain. After all, if you can't use it, it's not much of a bargain. Even the most die hard romantics will struggle to use up the 300 heart shaped candles bought on a whim!
