Hello Ladies! I just want to know what your decorator has quoted you as the price for decorating at reception. I got a quote of 3000, and I know it would be beautiful, but I have a hard time paying 3000 just for decorations. Is this a normal cost? We cannot do the decorations ourselves, we can only get into the hall an hour before the wedding so we need a decorator.

200 per hour! It’s a vintage theme so that could be the difference.

I’m paying $5,000 because I have custom linens. Yes, I think that it is worth it. But do ask your decorator to show you a “mock” table of what it will look like BEFORE the wedding. That way you may wish to add, subtract, etc and you get no surprises (or disappointments). So, it is a normal cost, and will make the difference in the appearance of your room. Also, have them make sure that all chairs are sturdy, no problems with any of the lighting, tables, that the rugs/floors are clean, no garbage or anything like that. This should also be included with the cost and remember, they have to go back and pick everything up.
