Ideas for Wedding Decorations That Will Take Your Breath Away
Let us get on with the list of some of the most loved decor themes at Symphony.
1. Rustic Romance
The first thing you have to do here is choose a venue that complements the rustic theme. A barn, a vineyard, a farm, or a garden with native Australian flora would be a great pick. Try to incorporate as many natural elements as possible, such as native flowers, and foliage like euchalyptus leaves, proteas, banksias, and wildflowers, into your bouquets and centrepieces.

Wood is the key element in the rustic decor. Add wooden signage, barrels, and crates for an effortless rustic touch. String lights, lanterns, and candles do add that soft glow that helps set the mood for romance.

2. Tune in to the Vibrant Hues
A colourful-themed decor for an Australian wedding is a vibrant and cheeky choice that aligns perfectly with the country’s sprightly culture. This theme is centred on an explosion of hues, so select a rich and diverse palette such as deep reds, vibrant oranges, oceanic blues, lush greens, and earthy browns.

Use colourful drapery and linens—tablecloths, runners, and napkins—that go with the choice. Bold and bright fabrics can add a pop of colour. Add colourful accent pieces like vases, candles, and glassware to your tables. These tiny details can make a huge impact on the overall look.
3. The Splendour of Romantic Pastels
This theme combines soft, muted pastel hues with the natural charm of the Australian outdoors. Opt for a dreamy pastel colour palette, including shades of soft pink, lavender, pale blue, mint green, and delicate peach. These colours evoke a sense of romance and tranquility.

Drape delicate pastel fabrics like chiffon or tulle as part of your decor. They can be used as table runners, chair sashes, or even as elegant drapery for your ceremony arch. Go for softer lighting with fairy lights, candles, and lanterns to create a warm ambience.
4. Glittery Glam
Weddings, as you know, are all about glitz and opulence and a glittery theme adds a touch of glamour to your celebrations. Combine the shimmer of metallics and sparkles with the rustic or natural elements to achieve the perfect end look. Create sparkling signage with metallic letters or calligraphy and add some glittery accents to your directional signs.
For this theme, you can go a bit overboard with the lighting. Use crystal chandeliers, candle-lit candelabras, and fairy lights to create an environment that screams glamour.
5. Beachfront-Inspired Decor
The beachside-themed decor has a whole new world of possibilities for us to work with. You can go with nautical elements such as ropes, anchors, and boat steering wheels for decor. Opt for bouquets with white lilies, hydrangeas, and native Australian blooms like sea and lavender, which have an oceanic feel to them.
Create an island with a pathway of seashells and petals that lead up to the altar and exude whimsical vibes. The tropical greenery and ferns in your floral arrangement would be a great add-on. Consider seashell place card holders and starfish-adorned centrepieces.
6. Sophisticated Minimalism
Embrace the clean lines, simplicity, and elegance while allowing the natural beauty of the comely Australian landscapes to shine. Try choosing neutral colour palettes that include shades of white, cream, soft grey, and muted earthy tones to create an understated, sophisticated look.
When it comes to this theme, always remember that less is more. Use minimalist stationery with minimal ornamentation. White lilies or calla lilies are a great pick for the floral arrangement. For elegant seating, include acrylic or white Chiavari chairs.
7. Floral Extravaganza
Select a rich and diverse colour palette, including bold shades of native Australian florals such as crimson waratahs, golden wattles, and purple kangaroo paws. Complement them with greens and earthy tones. A breathtaking floral aisle and well-adorned floral arch are a classic vision of beauty.
Think of hanging flower-filled terrariums, baskets, or globes from trees, ceilings, or arches. Go for oversized arbors covered in native blooms, creating a sweet background for your vows. Complement the native blooms with abundant greenery, such as cascading vines, ferns, and eucalyptus leaves, adding depth and texture to your decor.
