So This is my ceremony location. I have seen other weddings at this venue and NO ONE has decorated the ceremony part. I need help or ideas of how to make it a little more warm and romanitc and less plane. I thought about having candles along the edge BUT I am afraid of people catching on fire because its on the smaller side and not much room to get in the rows
Any ideas bee’s?

@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

1. paper lanterns to hang from the ceiling
2. cylinders with water and floating candles for the aisle
3. something decorative to hang on the back of the chairs

@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
ribbon or fabric
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.

@weddingbound: I really love the lanterns with candles. I could possible get away with placing them every other chair so it is not too cluttered.
As far as height goes its fairly high. The only conditions that my venu has is that it will cost extra to have them setup and take things down.
The backdrop is not removalbe. I have been told that they have curtains that they some times put up on either side to make it look less empty. I would have them remove the plants that are there right now.
The wedding is in the evening. The ceremony starts at 5:30 and sunset is at 6 so I think it will be dark enough that candles would be pretty.
