Need some opinions on my ceremony decor. Please keep in mind we are on a very tight budget. We are getting married in front of a gazebo and up until recently had no decor planned for it. I really don’t want it to be so plain so I am springing for a tulle/baby’s breath combo that my florist can do for around $150. It would look something like the pic below except it wouldn;t go all the way around, it would just be the draping in the front and would have baby’s breath clusters in the top corners. We are also having mason jars with baby’s breath lining the aisles. I know the use of tulle is frowned open or thought of as tacky, but my question is does the below picture really look all that bad? Can I get away with it?

The tulle doesn’t look so bad but the flowers on each corner is what I personally don’t like. Looks a little 90’s.

I’ve never heard of tulle being frowned upon or tacky. I think the decorations in the picture look nice. However, I’m not sure I would use white baby’s breath with white tulle- I would try to use a flower with color.

I like this look, and you can always do it cheaper by just tacking tulle up yourself. If you have any color in your wedding, you might want a ribbon that color or a flower that color, because the baby’s breath might get lost against the tulle.

purple_orchid: white on white is very elegant, so no worries there.

Well if it’s anything like the picture it will be spectacular

That picture looks great!!! I would try to add a little bit of colour too though.

I had some super cheap & easy baby’s breath bouquets and white tulle (actually Ikea curtains sewn together). I was happy with how it looked except some were crooked b/c the dear man in the photos was the one to hang them : )

I think baby’s breat would be fine if you like it, but here is a reasonably priced garland that I am considering using: http://www.samsclub.com/sams/premium-wedding-garland/prod6380129.ip?navAction=. You could always add a few sprigs of baby’s breath in if you wanted everything to be more coordinated. This garland seems to have great reviews, and you could reuse it at your reception.

I think that sounds really pretty, simple and clean. I thin it will turn out great 🙂

I’ve never heard of tulle being tacky in a wedding. Also, though lots of brides don’t like unsolicited advice I’m going to give it…I wouldn’t pay the florist to make this. If you have someone who can do this or diy, tulle is 1.29 a yard at Hobby Lobby. Match that with a 40% off coupon you can pull up on your phone, you can do this for WAYYYY less than $150.

I don’t think it looks too bad, and I think the white on white will look nice.
You could even do this yourself by getting some white sheer curtains and a tension rod, it would probably cost $50 at most.
