Tips for Stress-Free Wedding Decorating

You have a million things to think about during the wedding planning process, many of which can cause you unnecessary stress. One of the more stressful tasks is getting your wedding venue decorated within a limited time frame on the wedding day.

Our rustic Knoxville wedding venue is already beautiful, and if you would like to add your own special touches, we can make arrangements to assist you with that. If you are wanting to do a lot of extra decorating, or if you are determined to do it all yourself, the following tips will help to keep your decorating at Country Jewell a little less stressful. 

Organization is Key

A well thought out and documented plan is the key to making sure everything gets done when and how it should. The more organized you keep your notes and decorations, the smoother the entire decorating process will go. 

Keep detailed notes about how you want everything to look. Set up a sample reception table and take a photo of it. When it's time to put centerpieces together, pull out the picture and recreate what is there. This also makes it easy for anyone helping you to understand how you want it to look.  

Make lists of everything that you need to have packed and sent to the venue. It's also wise to make a list of everything that needs to be brought home after the wedding is over too. That way, nothing gets overlooked or left behind. 


Keep It Super Simple! (Because we think the more common "Keep It Simple Stupid" is just too mean.) If you know that you won't have a lot of time on the wedding day to spend decorating, then go with the "less is more" school of thought. Country Jewell's scenic grounds and historic buildings already look beautiful on their own. A few candles here and there may be all that you need to get the look you want. 

Favors are nice, but not a necessity. The chances are good that your guests won't even take home the favors that you spent time making and putting out. The same goes for seating charts and place cards. Unless you have family members that you need to keep separated, take the stress of planning a seating chart out of your to-do list.   

Make DIY Projects Early

Pinterest has made nearly every bride anxious to take the Do-It-Yourself approach to everything in her wedding. Only take on this challenge if you love crafting and have enough time to make everything that you have in mind. Begin all of your projects as soon as you can, even if the wedding is a year away. This assures that you will have plenty of time to finish what you have started without rushing around at the last minute.  

Hire a Professional

The easiest way to remain stress-free on your wedding day is to hire someone else to take care of the details. Hiring a wedding coordinator, even if just for a few hours, will allow you to focus on what's important, which is the fact that you are marrying the person that you want to spend the rest of your life with. 

Let someone else sweat over the small stuff. When you do hire your own wedding vendors, make sure that they are reliable and trustworthy. You know that they will get their job done, and that is one less area that you will have to stress over. 

We have wedding packages at Country Jewell that offer assistance like this. We can take care of the food, the officiant, the DJ, and even the decorating in some cases. When you call us to book your wedding, let us know how much help that you are needing and we will find a package that works perfectly for you.  

Decorating your wedding ceremony and reception venues is a big job, but it doesn't have to be stressful one. Only take on what you can handle, and if it gets to be too much, go another direction. The tips above will go a long way in helping you to ease the stress of decorating your Knoxville wedding venue. Country Jewell is already pleasing to the eye, but we're here to help if you want to transform it into something personalized just for you.
