{Wedding Trends} : Hanging Wedding Decor

This idea applies flawlessly to outdoor weddings, when it comes to decorating the gazebo, tent, or even just overhanging branches. In the other hand, some indoor venues will be perfect for hanging decorations without requiring even the slightest change, and some may require an extra touch of creativity. What you can do with a ceiling greatly depends on where your wedding is being held.
