To Theme or Not To Theme...
That is the Question!
Here's a list
of what you might do and what you might not. No pressure here. But remember,
theme is very important. Saying you don't have a theme is like saying, "just
make sure the air conditioning works and there's food on the table!"...which
is important, of course...but!
Even if you
choose just to do florals...that's still a theme you carry through with colors
and size and all that good stuff.
If you decide
on using a decorator, supply them with this checklist and ask them to prepare a
proposal with prices listed by item. Then pick and choose what you want to fit
within your budget.
