If your décor and overall theme is more important to you than your venue then find a place that is going to suit your idea best. On the other hand, if the setting of your wedding holds a higher place on the list of priorities then pick a venue and work with a theme that’s going to suit it respectively. Many locations are very versatile and allow for a multitude of creativity, just be sure both your location and your décor flatter one another.
