Wedding decorations

Are you planning your wedding and want this event to become true in San Miguel de Allende? If so, then you’ll need to find the perfect decorations to make your special day even more special. 

To help you out, we have created this guide of tips for selecting decorations, styles, designs, venues, and other points, so you can have your special day just how you had imagined it.

Set your budget for decoration. 

In the steps to plan your wedding, the first one to take into account is to set a general budget for all the expenses that this event implies. 

A portion must be specifically considered for the decoration of the different points of celebration, such as:

  • Arrival car decoration: It is important to give style to the car in which the bride will arrive. 
  • Decoration of the ceremony place: Whether in a church, chapel, hall or outdoor place; the decoration of the altar, chairs, etc. must be considered. 
  • Event hall decoration: Whether outdoors, terrace or enclosed place, consider the spaciousness of the location. 
  • Table decoration: The place where the guests will sit must have a decoration according to the occasion.

Choose a theme for the decoration

Once you have the budget defined, the next step is to choose the theme for your wedding. This is a good time for you to talk as a couple about your tastes and define the topic together.

Some couples are more traditional and opt for romantic, sober, sophisticated and even vintage styles. Other couples decide themes based on movies, books, series, comics, music, periods of history, seasons of the year or even a specific lifestyle. 

The theme for the wedding will help define the type of decoration, the colors, and the organization of the elements that will be necessary for the event spaces.

Set the wedding date 

The wedding date is also very important to blend the theme and the time of year the wedding will take place. 

It’s not the same to plan a winter wedding than a summer one due to the trend in colors and even the type of attire you expect from your guests, from you and your partner. Besides, you must consider if you want it to be a celebration focused on the day or the night. 

Every aspect is essential so the decoration of your wedding matches the wedding theme and there is not a single element out of place.

Choose the color palette for the wedding decoration

Choosing the color palette to be used in the decoration of your wedding is now easier once you have chosen the theme and the date when your event will take place. 

The color palette will help us decide the color of tablecloths, flowers, table arrangements, tableware, napkins, balloons decoration and aerial decoration. This way you can also suggest to your guests the colors you expect them to wear on this special day for you and that it does not clash with the environment.

Choose the perfect spot for the wedding 

San Miguel de Allende is considered one of the most engaging and attractive tourist spots in Mexico due to its atmosphere and colonial architecture, which still remains despite the passing of years. 

This place has also become one of the best cities in Guanajuato where lovers decide to celebrate the wedding of their dreams. This has allowed Hotels and Restaurants of high quality to decide on setting their establishment here. 

San Miguel de Allende has hotels that offer you extra services with complete packages for events such as: 

  • Restaurants 
  • Spas and Temazcales 
  • Terraces with incredible views 
  • Pools 
  • Banquet Hall 
  • Catering 
  • Service Gardens

Depending on the place you choose for this magical day, you can consider acquiring one of their event packages which includes decoration, catering, and accommodation. 

Some boutique hotels to celebrate the wedding of your dreams are Hotel Villa Limón, Hotel Matilda and Hotel Rosewood.

Buy the decorative elements for your wedding.

As the next step, start searching for the items and elements that will be necessary for the decoration of your wedding. Some designs can be made if you have skills with crafts.

Another option is to hire people who specialize in this type of decoration and free yourself from this process by leaving it in specialized hands. In San Miguel de Allende, you will find excellent places where you can acquire some designs, pieces or qualified personnel.

Lastly, you can also consider the wedding packages offered by some hotels. If you have chosen one, ask for their catalog and if you are convinced, leave everything in their hands.

Organize and Place Decorative Items

If you want to take charge of the decoration with the elements and decorative items you have decided, you have to go to the event hall or the designated place for the wedding reception one or two days before to place them in the place you chose. 

One recommendation we can make to you is that you try to organize all the elements so that they complement each other but also have a defined motif, for example: 

  • The candy table 
  • The photo area 
  • Additional decorations such as swings, armchairs, etc. 
  • The space to leave good wishes to the newlyweds. 
  • The main table of the bride and groom 
  • The gifts table 
  • Table arrangements and decoration of the environment.

Enjoy the beauty of your wedding decorations. 

This journey comes to its peak on the most awaited day for you and your partner. It seems as if that wedding decoration is a simple activity, but it has a whole process that needs to be followed so that the space you have chosen for the ceremony and reception will be imprinted in your mind forever.


The perfect complement for the wedding of your dreams is undoubtedly the environment in which this magical day takes place. Wedding decorations give you the opportunity to transport yourself to a spectacular place.
