One of the ways you can definately bring out "WOW" factor as the guests enter your reception has to be lighting & draping. Flowers alone won't do the magic. Whether it's pin spotting on your important tables such as head and cake table or up lighting adding extra splash of color to the walls of your venue-lighting brings such a dramatic effect and can tranform your wedding reception * If you're tight on budget, I would definately cut back on flowers and take adventage of this useful effect- it makes a world of difference!
