highschoolhoneys:  It sounds very pretty, but I would skip the letter at the back of the gazebo. Sometimes you just have to know when to stop.

Make sure you remember to get a floor length tablecloth.

I agree with Julies, I would drop the ‘T’, it sounds like it would be too much. As far as the fabric, I would probably do white. White is simple and has less of a chance of clashing with skin tones and clothes.

I love reading about all the plans for your wedding because it’s scary similar to mine! We are getting married at the American Swedish Historical Museum in Philadelphia and working with Jeffrey A Miller Catering.  They are fantastic.  My bridesmaids are also wearing navy and we’re going to get married outside in front of a small atrium attached to the building.  

I recommend using chiffon to drape behind the location to add some texture and highlight the area you two are getting marriend (our likely florist, Buttercup, is helping drape white and grey chiffon.) I think if you use coral in front it might be a bit much. The off white is a subtler statement and won’t distract from you.

We are also using lanterns filled with flowers to line the aisle, and then will transport them to the table to be dual purpose center pieces. They’ll also get additional flowers around the base of the lanterns.  The only additional lighting I suggest are globe lights.  Our venue provides them in the seasonal tent they put up for the reception which is great. They add a lot of ambience and light in the evening, so that additional lighting rentals aren’t necessary.

Good luck!
