Whether you say “I do” on the lawn of a historic home or on the roof of a penthouse the theme you choose for your wedding reflects your personal style and tastes as a couple. Choose decorations that fit your theme. Read on for decorating ideas for an Atlanta wedding.

Sweet as a Georgia Peach

Georgia is famous for sweet peaches and makes for a great Atlanta wedding theme. Incorporate the color peach into your color theme by pairing with coordinating colors such as peach and gold, peach and mint or peaches and cream. For peachy-keen wedding receptions table top decorations consider a basket of fresh peaches or floral centerpieces featuring peach roses, carnations or lilies. Give your wedding guests Georgia peach- inspired favors such as peach preserves, old-fashioned peach-scented hand soaps or fun peach-flavored gumballs. Serve a peach wedding cake or create a signature peach wedding drink.

Historic Atlanta

Celebrate your Atlanta wedding by paying tribute to Georgia history. One way to do this is to have your wedding in a historic Atlanta venue such as a historical mansion or farm including Rhodes Hall, Naylor Hall, or Wimbish House. The Atlanta History Center offers a variety of choices including the Swan House, McElreath Hall, and the Smith Family Farm. At nearby Vinings is the historic Pace House offering classic antebellum charm. Decorate with an eye on the past. For example, use antique table settings and place native Georgia wildflowers atop lace doilies on wedding reception tables.

Love and Football

Love is in the air when it is football season and sports –loving couples getting married in Georgia know that Atlanta is home to the Atlanta Falcons, Georgia Bulldogs and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Decorate in team colors of red, black white, gold or silver. Give your wedding guests commemorative football favors emblazoned with your favorite team colors and wedding date. Provide your wedding guests with mini pom-poms to “cheer” you and your sweetheart as you make your wedding reception exit to your honeymoon.

Georgia on My Mind

Revel in everything Georgia at your Atlanta wedding. Get creative and decorate with state symbols such as the state fruit peaches or the state flower, the Cherokee rose. Send wedding guests home with gift bags paying tribute to famous citizens who lived in Atlanta from Martin Luther King Jr. to Whitney Houston. Serve regional favorites to on your reception menu to coordinate with your theme such as okra, black-eyes peas, fried green tomatoes or barbecue.
