Wedding Decor: What do you need?



You're engaged, you've got the venue, now one of the next things couples starting dreaming of is the decor. Your Pinterest boards are full of beautiful tablescapes and backdrops but where do you even start? Nothing is worse than realizing the month of your wedding you forgot a sign directing guests to the ceremony space and now you have to stress about finding one quickly while remaining in budget.

To help you avoid those situations and know what you actually need, we've broken down a list of decor and spaces for you.
