You could do a lot of string lights (ask around for people’s Christmas lights). They would look amazing on all those beams. And you can drape tulle around them too. Bolts of tulle aren’t too expensive- especially if you buy in bulk. I’ve seen 40 yard bolts for $15.

lnadinee:  You have a lovely venue with an industrial, modern vibe. I wouldn’t make any atttempt to hide or cover it up. I would just enjoy it. The open beams make it easy to hang string lights.

If you want to tie in with the blue lights, Pier 1 has blue string lights now.

Remember that concentrating your efforts in one area, like over the dance floor, can have the  most impact.

Strings of lights would be nice, but it’s such a gorgeous space already you don’t need to decorate it that much.  The view outside the window is decoration enough!  Once you have the tables and centerpieces up, the space will look very full and lush without hanging pom poms from the ceiling.

Loving the large windows and the views!!!

My fiancee’s sister had her wedding at the Yacht club, and her decor was very minimal and nautical because of the obvious location and the awesome views. Maybe you can look into something of that sort?

If you want to cover the dj cabinet entireley have you thought of making fabric backdrop (maybe held by pvc pipes) and a diy stenciled monogram? Easy to do and well look simple and classy.

This is  a take off on grapevine balls done with old bamboo blinds. You can get used ones at thrift stores, soak them in warm water until they re soft, wrap them around a large ball, glue or staple them together and let dry. Deflate the balloon after they are completely dry.
