I don’t have pictures, but I feel if you set it up the way your wedding planner wants you take away from the natural beauty of the location.

@RunnerBride13:  Your wedding planner is obviously from the school of “Over the top” decor.

I think your ideas are perfect and wil focus attention on the bride and groom, rather than the decor.

That 2nd picture is gaudy and awful.  The first one is elegant.  Fire this person.  Seriously.  Her idea of what will look nice is utterly bourgeois.

@RunnerBride13:  I am super weird about sharing on here but if you PM me your e-mail address, I’ll send you what we did.

We had a simple chuppah and very simple aisle decor, though ours was inside a hotel ballroom, not outside but it could still give you an idea.  It was very clean, elegant and beautiful. I loved it.

I don’t like that 1st pic. At all.

@RunnerBride13:  Without even reading past the first paragraph: you, by definition, are right. Your wedding planner is there to work for you. If she’s going to not do what you want, fire her.

Shouldn’t she just do what you want? Since it’s your wedding and you are paying her and everything? I like the simple design.

I think both are really nice. Most weddings I go to have close to no ceremony decorations.

@RunnerBride13:  She should be respecting what YOU want for your wedding, not what she thinks looks best. If you can’t come to a agreement, I would try to find a new planner. I’m not decorating our outdoor ceremony area besides flower petals along the sides of the aisle.

She should not be calling your ideas boring! It’s your wedding and you call the shots. I much prefer your vision by the way. I had simple ceremony decor because I wanted the natural beauty of our venue to be the focus and it looked great.
