Tips for Choosing the Perfect Décor for Your Greenville, SC Wedding

Deciding on the perfect décor for your Greenville, SC wedding can feel like a daunting task. You may have a lot of ideas and you’re not sure how to narrow them down, or maybe you’re just starting to brainstorm. Either way, the wedding experts at our Greenville wedding venues, UP on the Roof and Ruth’s Chris Steak House, are here to help! Our team is sharing its top tips for choosing décor that will help wow every guest at your Greenville, SC wedding!

Make Key Decisions Before Deciding Décor Details

Although you may be tempted to immediately start choosing particular décor for your upcoming Greenville, SC wedding, it’s important to hold off, as there are several key decisions that should come first. These important choices will help guide your decisions around specific details. Making these larger, overarching décor decisions first will help you have more cohesive and truly perfect wedding décor.

Key Decision: Choose Your Wedding Aesthetic

The aesthetic you choose for your wedding will guide every other selection you make, from big decisions to the tiniest details, so it’s important to feel confident in the look and feel you want for your big day. As you choose your aesthetic, you’ll want to think about what type of style is most reflective of you and your fiancée.

Wedding Theme Versus Aesthetic

It’s important to keep in mind that, although the two words are often used interchangeably, a wedding aesthetic is different than a wedding “theme”.

While a theme focuses on a specific idea like the beach, Halloween, or maybe even football, aesthetic simply refers to a type of style. Some wedding aesthetics you may want to choose for your Greenville, SC wedding include:

  • Vintage
  • Rustic
  • Contemporary
  • Glam
  • Urban
  • Classic
  • Cultural
  • Modern

Key Decision: Select Your Venue

Selecting your venue is another important step in the process of deciding on the perfect décor for your Greenville, SC wedding. While there are some locations you’ll want to steer away from — you probably do not want a nautically themed venue if you’re going for a glam wedding aesthetic, for example — others are more flexible.

Our two Greenville Ruth’s Chris Steak House restaurant locations in downtown Greenville and at I-385 can accommodate a variety of wedding styles, and both have several private dining rooms available.

Our other restaurant, UP on the Roof, has a more industrial chic vibe as well as amazing views of downtown Greenville and the Reedy River.

Each restaurant can accommodate small, medium-sized and larger Greenville, SC wedding receptions:

  • UP on the Roof: Up to 350 guests.
  • Ruth’s Chris in Downtown Greenville: Up to 200 guests.
  • Ruth’s Chris at I-385 in Greenville: Up to 350 guests

All our venues have a dedicated events team to work with you and make sure your preferred venue and desired décor make a stunning combination.

Key Decision: Determine Your Color Palette

It is also important to decide on your wedding color palate before you choose any specific décor items for your ceremony or reception. Choosing your color palate early in the planning process will help you keep a cohesive look to your wedding as you choose the smaller details of your décor.

Your palate should consist of one or two main coordinating colors, and you can bring in as many pops of coordinating or contrasting colors as you like. Have fun with it!

Getting Down to the Decoration Details

With all the key decisions made, now it’s time to get down to the décor details! Wedding décor includes basically all the visible details at your ceremony and reception, and even extends to wedding stationary like invitations and Save the Date cards.

However, the list below includes some of the major décor items you will need to choose.

  • Favors
  • Table Linens
  • Centerpieces
  • Cake
  • Flowers
  • Ring Pillows
  • Table Numbers or Names
  • Chair Covers
  • Aisle Runner
