How Can Couples in Ontario Save on Custom Wedding Décor?

Wedding Décor

Couples across Ontario are currently trying to design and create their ideal wedding décor on a budget. Our team at Best Wedding Backdrops understands how challenging this process can be. That’s why we’re highlighting our work with past clients, and general advice from our experts in this latest post.

  1. Let’s talk about the design; how did these clients get a custom design without cost?

“Well, these clients originally came to us wanting a mirrored Table Seating Chart. We informed them that we don’t have a mirror on hand that is big enough for us to print all the names on to, so they would have to bring in their own mirror. After several back and forth discussions, we concluded that the mirror they wanted to use would not work for the Table Seating Chart, we then showed them their other options. One of those was a Foamcore Table Seating Chart, a very cost effective- custom signage option. The couple loved the idea and we advised them to choose a design that is very simple if they want to stay under the 15-minute free design time (anything taking over 15 minutes to design will be charged). Once they sent us the design we forwarded it to our graphic designer and she let us know it would take her under 15 minutes to design this specific design.”

  1. What do the clients have to supply for the graphic designer to create the cost-effective Table Seating Chart?

“We advise our clients to supply us with as many details as possible to minimize the amount of time it would take our graphic designer to create it for them. For example, we would ask them to include details like an image for reference, colour of text and other images like leaves for example, wording they want to be used, font style and size, layout (horizontal vs. vertical), so on and so forth. As well we require an Excel spreadsheet for the Table Seating Chart that includes all the names and tables for the sign. It should be formatted by the way the customer wants the seating chart organized (by table, alphabetically by first or last name etc.) From there, we can copy and paste the names/ tables instead of organizing their names our self which would result in extra design charges. Ultimately, the more design details for your signs you give us the less chance there is of you incurring additional design charges.”

  1. Are all the custom tips the same for other signage?

“Table Seating Charts take the longest to design when it comes to types of signage. Usually, signage like Welcome Signs, Order of Event Signs, and Bar Menu Signs are a lot less detail oriented because they don’t require the names, so they take a lot less time to design (if you don’t go with an extremely complicated design). But for all types of signage, you want to follow the above suggestions if you want a custom design without the cost. Please keep in mind the same follows for our other custom products like Dance Floor Decals, Custom Backdrops, and Acrylic/ Mirror Signage. Just be really organized and have all your details ready for us!”

  1. What if a customer wants custom design and doesn’t mind paying the additional design charges, should they still follow the above suggestions?

“Yes, it’s always helpful too because we aren’t out to take all your money. Design can add up quite quickly because, as any graphic designer knows; it’s easy to quickly design something average, but it takes longer to design something beautiful. We recommend giving us as many details as possible so that, even if you want an elaborate design that will take a bit, we can still cut down the costs for when we add additional design time to your invoice.”

  1. Are customers informed of how much they will be spending or not spending on design before their product is finished?

“Yes, one of the things we pride ourselves in at BWB is how upfront and forward we are with our customers. When customers come to us and show us a design that they would like us to recreate, we forward it to our graphic designers and ask them how long approximately it would take them to recreate it to the best of their ability. When we get the answer, we let the customers know, for example this design would take about 2-3 hours, so there would be additional design charges of $130.00. We as well let the customers know they have a couple of options; we can recreate the design, and charge for additional design hours, or we can create a design like it.

Sometimes, we aren’t able to recreate certain images, for example a forest, something like that would either take forever to design or we wouldn’t be able to design a graphic like that in the first place, so that’s when royalty free images come into play. If we cannot find the certain image off free royalty free websites like Pexel or Pixabay we would have to resort to iStock, which charges for royalty free images. Our team at BWB would be able to assess your design and let you know if there would be any extra design charges and as well if we would need to purchase any images to create the certain design and charge the price to the invoice. There are no hidden costs when you choose our company to create custom wedding decor for your Ontario event/ wedding.”

Wedding Reception Backdrop Tips for Outdoor Weddings

Outdoor backdrop

Holding your wedding outdoors can allow you to enjoy nature as you commit your life to your partner. But outdoor events bring with them their own unique set of problems. If you’re planning an outdoor event for the coming months, it’s important you consider how to plan for the occasion. As a starting point, we’re highlighting our tips for using wedding reception backdrops outdoors.

  1. Sandbag the backdrop to the ground

The wind can make it exceptionally difficult to keep the backdrop in place while holding an outdoor event. In the planning stages for your wedding reception, you should use a sandbag to hold the backdrop in the ground. In many cases, wedding backdrops have been known to fly across the venue space like a kite in the wind. Not only can this destroy your entire wedding aesthetic, it may also cause injuries among the attendees.

  1. Add a black backer

In some cases, wedding reception backdrops can become transparent when exposed to the sun. This can diminish the entire effect of the backdrop, and limit the value of the investment within the display product. Make sure that you take the time to add a black backer to the display. The black backer can be used to close off the display to the sunlight, and help improve the impact backdrops have within the wedding reception space.

  1. Consider natural lighting

Natural lighting should be used where possible to highlight the backdrop. In an outdoor space, there is limited need for artificial lighting products, which can detract from the natural beauty of the event. You may wish to work with a specialist design team when selecting your backdrop to capitalize on the unique outdoor lighting. The natural lighting from the sun can provide an unparalleled aesthetic that helps create the ideal event experience for both the happy couple and their guests.

Our experienced team at Best Wedding Backdrops is committed to providing you that ideal wedding day experience when using our displays. To learn more about the display options we have available, call us today.

New Wedding Concepts for Wedding Dance Floor Decals

Dance floor decal

In choosing dance floor decals for your wedding venue dance floor, it’s important that you take the time to review your full range of options. There are numerous decal styles to help you create that ideal dance floor space. And within this latest post, we’ll explain some of the newer concepts for wedding dance floor decals.

  1. Instead of laser-cut decals use regularly shaped decals

Laser cut decals might be convenient to create in large number and to form basic shapes, but they don’t add a unique element to the wedding event. Instead of using laser cut decals, you might consider asking your decal specialist to cut regularly shaped decals for you. These decals can include any element that you require within their design, ensuring that they’re completely distinct from decals used by other couples.

  1. Use photos on the dance floor

One of the options that many couples utilize is to take a photo of themselves and then edit it into the decal design. This allows the happy couple to be a part of the decal design process and means that after the event the couple will have a happy reminder of the fun they had on the dance floor with their family and friends. It’s important when choosing photos for the decal to work with a specialist designer who can help ensure the photo offers the quality for use within the decal design creation process.

  1. Use a marble background with your initials

Many couples are now also choosing a marble background as their wedding dance floor decals, which are then emblazed with their initials. The marble background combines prestige and classic design style to improve the ambience within the venue. It’s a great option for those couples looking for a simple yet tasteful dance floor addition.

The team here at Best Wedding Backdrops are committed to helping you select the perfect decals for your wedding venue dance floor. We offer a full range of options as well as provide access to a design team with years of experience in the creative field. To discover more about your decal options, call us today.

How to Spice Up the Backdrop that Comes with Your Photo Booth Rental

Spice up your backdrop

In choosing a photo booth rental for your event, it’s important that you take the time to review your backdrop options. Your photo booth backdrop should fit in with your event aesthetic and should help assure you that ideal return on your investment in the display product. In this latest post, we’ll explain how to spice up the backdrop included with your photo booth rental.

  1. Add signage to it

You can begin to spice up the backdrop by adding signage to the display space. The signs should promote your event and should be designed in-line with the aesthetics for your important celebration. Make sure you consider the structure of the signs as well as review the setup and dismantling process for the event.

  1. Add a decal on the floor in front of it

Floor decals are a great way to invite others to the photo booth backdrop area. They can be used to highlight the names of the couple getting married or to simply combine graphics that support the event aesthetics. When using floor decals within the venue make sure you consider the type of flooring material within the space, and the time it might take to add the decals before the event. The weeks before the wedding day should be utilized in planning for the integration of decals and other display materials.

  1. Drape fairy lights from the top of the display

Another way to add aesthetic value to the backdrop is to add fairy lights to the display. These lights can add some colour and sparkle to the photo booth backdrop can bring in attendees from across the venue to use the booth. This can have significant value at a nighttime event where the fairy lights glisten across the area and give the space a special glow.

Many of the leading companies in Canada for photography backdrops such as Best Wedding Backdrops offer template designs which can be used at the event. These designs can then be customized for the couple and their unique occasion, helping to save on creating that original backdrop design.

Design Your Own Backdrop

Creative people are now taking on the design process for themselves. If you have the design skill and a flair for artwork, you might consider designing your own backdrop for the event. This holds a number of advantages. It means that you won’t have to pay a designer to take on the work, and it also means you’ll be able to create that ideal piece to match your unique event vision.

A Guide to Your Affordable Photo Booth Backdrops

Affordable Photo Booth Backdrops

Working with photo booth backdrops for your wedding can be challenging. Many couples find that backdrops become too expensive for their event, and they must turn to another option to entertain guests and help support the ideal celebratory ambiance. But our team at Best Wedding Backdrops is committed to providing you with affordable photo booth backdrops. And in this latest post, we’ll explain more about the options available.

We supply the vinyl or fabric backdrop

One great option for those looking for more affordable photo booth backdrops is to turn to our team at Best Wedding Backdrops for a vinyl or fabric product without the frame. Saving on the price of the frame can reduce your costs significantly. And you can still use the backdrop at the event while maintaining the quality of the product by either hanging the backdrop or mounting it directly behind the photo booth using the supplied mounting hardware.

You supply the frame, we supply the graphics

Due to the cost of the frame for your photo booth backdrops, it often makes better financial sense for you to supply the frame directly. We can then supply the graphics for you to ensure that the backdrop display is produced professionally.  This ensures you receive a high-quality display, built precisely for use within your own frame.

Use a foam core sign as your backdrop

Many couples are now reducing their wedding costs by using a foam core sign for their backdrop rather than a fabric backdrop product. While it might not offer the visual appeal of a fabric backdrop, the foam core sign can be produced more affordably and will offer value for your event.

Turning to the trusted team at Best Wedding Backdrops can help you select affordable photo booth backdrops that set the standards for both aesthetics and performance. We have many years’ experience helping couples create their ideal event days through our display systems. And we’re available around the clock to answer questions.

The Top Trends for Wedding Backdrops in Toronto in 2018

wedding walls

By understanding the trends within the industry, you can gain ideas for your own wedding event in the coming months. Our team at Best Wedding Backdrops has significant experience in the local event marketplace, and here in our new post, we’re exploring the top trends for wedding backdrops in Toronto in 2018.

Calligraphy font

Getting the right font for your wedding backdrop isn’t always the easiest process. You have to ensure the font is legible and can be easily seen and read at the event venue. Font styles change as new options emerge and new preferences are determined. This year, the calligraphy font has become one of the most chosen options by those in Toronto selecting their wedding backdrops. This font offers significant appeal as part of a classically-designed venue.

Lighting behind backdrops

The backdrop should be lit from behind to capture the attention at your event venue. But until recently few couples were choosing to use backlighting as part of their backdrops. In 2018 lighting has become a key feature of wedding backdrops as it presents couples the ability to showcase their design to the entire venue audience.

Geometric shapes

Another important addition to your wedding display options is geometric shapes. You can now add unique shapes to the background of the display or within the backdrop itself to improve the design appeal. It’s important to work with a qualified design specialist when considering your full range of shape options. An expert from Best Wedding Backdrops can help you choose a shape that complements your design motif.

Organic backdrops

Another of more common trends in the Toronto marketplace for wedding backdrops is the use of organic backdrops. Many are now choosing to use organic products such as flowers and natural plants within their backdrop to create a natural appeal to their design. It’s a new option that is becoming more popular with couples across the country.
