@simone_s:  Are there any decor restrictions your venue has set? I would check with them first before I start decorating with candles and loose petals

@simone_s:  I like the idea of lanterns for your aisle. I think your guests will be fine and will know to go around them. Also they are more protected being a lantern and more sturdy.




Maybe placing a small candle screen inf that box area to serve as your backdrop. Where you could stand in front of it for the ceremony. I think the candle light will really give that romantic cozy feel

A smaller version of something like this

@simone_s:  Candles look great in pictures online, but unless you are having an evening wedding, the effect will be lost with all that light coming in from the open side of that room.

Are the bamboo pieces (table and wall screen)on the back wall removeable?  I would take them out of that is possible.

Depending on the style of your wedding, you could use paper pinwheels

pinwheels in navy coral mint and mustard


ribbon or fabric


moss monogram


The overhead structure is just screaming out with possibilities for hanging paper lanterns,garlands, bunting, or weaving ribbon, fabric, etc from beam to beam. It’s hard to tell the height you have to work with from the pic. You don’t want guests to have to duck under the decor, so draping between the beams may be the best solution.
