A wedding night should be unforgettable. Add to the memories with extra-special decorations in your wedding suite. These decorations set the mood, add to the ambiance and start the marriage off in the right direction. There’s no need to go overboard; stick to simple elements that can be set up or planned ahead of time.
Time alone together at a local hotel can revitalize your love, however not all hotel rooms are designed with romance in mind. Add romance to any hotel room with special touches, such as candles, chocolates, roses and wine, to set the mood and help reconnect you with the one you love.
How to Decorate for a Wedding Night
Even though there are plenty of flowers at a wedding, the couple seldom gets to enjoy them during the festivities. A trail of rose petals as you enter the wedding suite might sound clichÃ©, but it is a classic romantic gesture for a reason.
Placing candles all over the bridal suite takes the room from a hotel to a getaway. Use enough candles so no lights or lamps have to be turned on. Try using scented candles such as sandalwood, vanilla or jasmine to help heat up the mood even more.
Place an MP3 player or CD player with speakers in the room with a playlist or CD consisting of romantic songs. Select songs that are meaningful to the bride and groom. Arrange to have the music on repeat and playing as they walk in. If you are not familiar with specific songs that the bride and groom enjoy, look online for â€œwedding night playlistsâ€ or â€œwedding night songs.”
Chill a bottle of sparkling wine in an ice bucket for the couple, and set two Champagne flutes next to the bucket. The couple may never pop the bottle, but it is a romantic trimming that helps set the mood. Decorate the room with a tray of chocolate-covered strawberries, chocolates and other fruit; set it on the foot of the bed, on the nightstand or on a small table. They are nice to look at, and it makes for a good snack later in the evening.
