How To Make Your Indoor Wedding Spectacular!

As October draws to a close, there is a noticeable chill in the air. Wisconsinites are hearty people, but in our experience, below freezing temps and strapless wedding dresses do not mix. Plus nobody likes to be excessively cold or hot at a party! So if your wedding date coincides with Mother Nature’s unpredictability, it’s a good idea to consider hosting your ceremony and reception indoors. And who better to help you make the most of your interior space than your venue!?

A few factors to pay special attention to when designing an indoor wedding are the space/backdrop of your venue, lighting, and colors. RiverStone Premier Event Center offers amazing versatility and customizability to these elements, and we’re here to help you pull off the indoor wedding for your dreams!

  • Color

Color is one of the most variable elements of indoor wedding planning. The sky’s the limit when it comes to selecting a wedding color palette! So consider these tips to help narrow down your options and bring your indoor wedding vision to life.

Greenery freshens and enlivens indoor spaces.

Ever heard the advice, “Bring the outdoors in?” Adding lush greenery is one of the most effective ways to do just that. Consider incorporating long runners and draping green foliage to create impact and add freshness.


Colors look different inside.

Space and lighting directly affect the perception of color. One advantage of planning an indoor wedding is that there is more control over these elements inside than there is outside. When selecting a color palette, we recommend that you set up samples in both natural and ambient light. Watch how the color changes throughout the day and evening, and take pictures to see how the colors strike you on film. That way you can make adjustments as needed, and you will be confident with your color palette come wedding day.

Pay attention to permanent fixtures.

What color is your venue’s carpet/floor? Is there an accent wall or bold paint color to consider? In our experience, it is best to work WITH the permanent fixtures and design elements of an interior space, not try to fight against them or cover them up. Choose colors that nicely complement your venue’s natural color palette and let the beauty of the interior space shine!

If you aren’t sure what colors will complement your space, we recommend asking the professionals! Talk to your venue, wedding planner/coordinator, and florist to get ideas of what color palette will work best in your space.

The interior space at RiverStone was designed to give you as many options as possible. We offer a peaceful, neutral color palette as the backdrop for your wedding inspirations, and we are excited to see how you will enhance it with color!
