This is the dace floor/bar area
This is the guest seating area
And here is the outdoor seating we needed to add
The DJ will be inside near an open sliding glass door that leading to the outdoor seating area.
I am looking for ideas on decorating. Our colors are pink orange and yellow. We are having a rustic romantic theme with lots of candles while trying to keep my FI mexican heritage thought. There will be a mariachi for the ceremony and cocktail hour and transistion into our DJ for dinner and pary. I am doing a lot of DIY things. I would love to hear any ideas you have!!! Thanks

@allyouneedislove: Thank you! I am stilling trying to figure that out. At first I was thinking pale shade to match the rustic romantic BUT wanting to keep my fiancee Mexican heritage in mind, I am leaning toward hot pink with bright orange and yellow =]

You can use wooden boxes for vases (even if you hide a real vase inside)
you can make something like this with pieces from the lumberyard
look at these darling flower girls
papel picado ceiling decor
hanging vases to make an arch at the entry to the reception
or something similar with small lanterns
ribbon weave for table decor instead of runners
simple and romantic- one flower on each plate
floral monogram in your colors for the front of the head or sweetheart table
whiskey barrel chandelier
burlap sacks for favors

If you want to keep it a bit whimsical/rustic, I would just remember to add in neutrals like burlap, maybe some lace and wood like the centerpieces julies1949 suggested! You can absolutely have the bright colors with romantic accents!

Have you thought about Mexican Picado bunting too? I love the look of it and it would be a great way to bring in color and be a nod toward your FI’s Mexican heritage:

I love the idea of using lanterns. You can place candles or floral arrangements inside, and they can be used to line your aisle, as centerpieces, or as decorative accents on your bar/guestbook table/etc.:
Coming back with more ideas in a minute! This post is too full with pics already haha!

Rustic romantic touch with lacey looking bunting/flags:
I like the idea of setting a live flower on the place settings/in the napkin rings.
I like the idea of placing them crisscrossed on the wall behind a large table.

I think the key to keeping the look romantic rather than too wild is to use the brightest colors on smaller pieces, whereas big items (like tablecloths) are neutral in color (although a bright runner over the neutral tablecloth would look great):
I LOVE the gold charger plates and the deep chocolate brown tall chunky candlesticks!
Some rustic romantic lighting ideas still to come in my next post!!

@Carrielicious: Some romantic lighting ideas… more in next post…
Would be so beautiful in the trees next to your outdoor seating area or surrounding the ceremony site!
Twinkly lights wrapped around the trees:

More romantic lighting ideas…
Lacey luminaries to coordinate with the lacey bunting/flags:
Elegant chair cover/sash ideas:
(the one above was apparently just hung on PVC pipe… would be perfect hung over your sliding glass door!)
(would be cool behind the head/sweetheart table)
I like the idea of setting off your aisle with two potted floral arrangements:
Cocktail table skirting:
And of course, you’ll have to bust out some maraccas on the dance floor!
Misc. for your color scheme:
Best of luck planning! Your wedding will be so gorgeous (so jealous of your incredible venue! SO my taste)!
