While vinyl may not be the first material that comes to mind when couples are planning wedding decorations, vinyl wall art is an easy, economical, and elegant choice for many wedding designs. Already a hot trend for home decoration to create murals or faux painted accents, vinyl decorations can be just as lovely and unique for a wedding.
Benefits of Vinyl Decorations
Using vinyl wall art wedding decorations is a no-stress option that gives couples a wide variety of easy choices without sacrificing beauty and elegance.
Vinyl art for weddings is…
Inexpensive – Wedding decorations, including linens, centerpieces, candles and accents, are often one of the biggest expenses a couple has when planning their wedding. Vinyl wall art, however, can be as little as $15 for an accent piece that will add instant beauty and elegance to the area. Using vinyl art in several ways is a great way for couples to maximize their wedding decoration budget.
Unique – Not only can couples choose from a tremendous range of designs including themed motifs, quotations, monograms, and other wedding art, but vinyl decorations can easily be customized with specific fonts, sizes, and colors to match a couple’s wedding theme. Personalized accents with the wedding date, initials, names, and favorite sayings are also popular choices that can make a couple’s wedding decorations completely unique.
Professional – Unlike do-it-yourself projects that might not turn out as promised, vinyl art is professionally designed with clean, clear text and images. More elaborate pieces are designed by artists, and each piece can be custom sized either larger or smaller without losing its clarity and beauty.
Easy – It can take less than ten minutes to apply a large piece of vinyl art to a suitable surface, and in less than an hour multiple pieces can be used to decorate an entire location. No special tools or expertise is needed to apply the artwork, and many types of vinyl art can be repositioned easily if adjustments must be made. Furthermore, because no nails or other adhesives are necessary, vinyl art is suitable for many venues with decoration restrictions.
Reusable – With all the money that goes into decorating for a wedding, it’s a shame that so many of those decorations are discarded at the end of the night. Vinyl art, however, can often be reused, depending on the manufacturer and application technique. Couples can simply remove the pieces and incorporate monograms and favorite quotes or designs into their home décor, or even consider selling generic art for other couples to use.
Ideas for Decorating with Vinyl Art
With a wide range of styles available, there are many ways couples can use vinyl art to decorate their weddings.
*Walls: The walls are the most obvious place for vinyl art. Large quotes, monograms, or romantic images such as hearts and doves are popular to decorate the walls of the reception hall. Customized phrases and quotes can be used as thank yous near the guest book or wishing well, and a “Just Married” or “Newlyweds” piece is a cute touch above the head table. Long repeating pieces can also be used to simulate molding and add an elegant touch to even the plainest room.
*Dance Floor: Adding a wedding monogram, double hearts, or interlocking rings to the center of the dance floor is a great touch to accentuate the couple’s first dance. Other dance floor decorations might include a dancing bride and groom silhouette or whimsical dancing footprints around the floor’s edge.
*Cars: Vinyl art is perfect for decorating a wedding limousine or the couple’s getaway car. Just married signs, hearts, rings, bells, and other wedding imagery is popular, and the art will not damage the vehicle’s finish. It can also be easily removed from rented vehicles.
*Windows: Decorating the windows of a wedding ceremony site or reception hall is a unique touch that adds simple elegance to the area. Seasonal designs such as snowflakes or falling leaves are especially popular as window decorations, or a monogram or personalized piece can be positioned on a larger window.
*Doors: Cut a piece of vinyl art such as a monogram, welcome sign, or romantic quote carefully and use it to decorate doors at the ceremony site or reception location. Whimsical bride and groom restroom signs are also available to decorate restroom doors at either location for a unique and fun touch.
*Walkways: Depending on the material, vinyl pieces can decorate walkways leading to the reception, interior hallways, or even the wedding aisle itself. This is another great place to put simple romantic symbols such as hearts or rosebuds, themed icons such as autumn leaves or seashells, or a couple’s monogram.
Vinyl Wedding Art Decoration Tips
Couples who choose vinyl art for wedding decorations can quickly become overwhelmed with the wide range of options and choices. To make the most of your vinyl decorations…
*Consult your ceremony and reception locations before ordering customized vinyl art to discuss decoration restrictions. Different venues may request a trial of the art to be sure it won’t discolor or damage surfaces, particularly if they aren’t familiar with its use.
*Avoid too many pieces of vinyl art that can be overwhelming. For an elegant decorative scheme, opt for just a few well coordinated pieces to add a lovely touch to your other decorations.
*Choose sizes, colors, and fonts that will be easily recognizable and legible. Opt for contrasting colors and sizes large enough to be visible, but at the same time coordinate the size with the artwork’s use. A thank you sign to go with the guest book table, for example, should be smaller than a dance floor monogram.
*Before applying the artwork, prepare each surface properly with gentle cleaning and thorough drying to ensure stable, secure application. Similarly, remove artwork carefully to avoid any inadvertent damage to surfaces and to preserve the piece for future use.
Vinyl artwork can be a beautiful decoration for any wedding. From monograms and romantic quotes to decorative symbols and whimsical options, there are many ways to use vinyl art to add that something special to your wedding decorations.
