Finding the right theme or wedding decor that uniquely fits you as a couple, as well as complements your venue, can be a huge challenge and may take some compromises. For example, if you have a garden-type venue, you may want to create a floral theme or arrangements that fit within the venue’s aesthetic and do not overshadow what’s already there. If your venue has a particular color scheme, then you may find it difficult to choose your ideal wedding colors and not clash with the established colors. However, at The Cuvier Club, a San Diego venue many of these challenges are easily overcome because of the venue’s high vaulted ceilings, clean lines, and white walls; basically a blank canvas for you to paint your perfect wedding picture. To help you choose the perfect accents for your wedding theme, here are some common decor ideas that work at The Cuvier Club:

• Paper lanterns – Add some flare and color to your event by hanging different-sized paper lanterns from the ceiling. Many people like to place them only over the dance floor, but it looks just as great when hung throughout the ballroom.

• Uplights – Since the main ballroom is surrounded by white walls, uplighting is key and can really add a dramatic touch to your event using a range of colors. With enough uplights, the ballroom becomes awash in your chosen color!

• Floral – Whether your chose large and ornate centerpieces or opt to go with something a little more modest, any kind of floral arrangements and colors work within the main ballroom.
