Twinkle lights, chinese laterns, pom poms? Maybe drape ribbon instead of letting it hang?

@Suikerbossie:  Another SA bee πŸ™‚

I love the look of the ribbons but agree it can get a bit crazy if the wind picks up…

Maybe do a trial run at home of the ribbons weighted with something – like mini flower bouquets, beads, or even use those wire art key rings – hopefully this will weigh it down enough so that it will swing slightly as opposed to fly all over the place.

Kinda like this:

If you want something directly overhead, you can always string a line across from two of the side branches , then hang your items from that line. Fishing line will be invisible.

@Suikerbossie: Hi, I consider myself a SA bride as well πŸ™‚ even though I’m Swiss and I live in NY, my fiancé is South African and that’s also where we met and now we are getting married in Cape Town! I’m so excited! 

I love the ribbons and I think it will actually look really pretty when the wind picks them up! But then again I might be biased because I am planning on having them as my ceremony backdrop as well…

Otherwise, have you seen this pic? Lace wrapped around the branches…I think it looks stunning and it would go with your romantic vintage feel:

What about this?

instead of traditional wedding arch


I think it’s elegant, yet it’s really economical!

@MsVoyageur:  I love this idea! It’s simple, yet so classy and refined. It’s a beautiful way to demarcate the site.
