@Zaraj_Will:  

The ceilings don’t look to be very high so I would avoid anything on the ceiling like in the photo above b/c it just brings the room down too much.

You can certainly use a charger plates for your centerpieces as well maybe something like the ones below. I think bringing in candle light would really warm the venue up a bit

Depending on budget uplighting always creates a pretty setting

@Zaraj_Will:  You can certainly drape strings of mini lights. They will look beautiful after dark. Just remember not to hang them too low. There is a T bar ceiling in your venues. You can get special hooks at Staples, or Home depot, Lowe’s etc

or, if the light strings aren’t too heavy, you can just use larger paper clips opened out.

 

In the same way, you could hang bunting- it doesn’t have to be rustic

Mexican papel Picado is also very pretty

If you are planning on doing favors, you might want to consider a “breakaway” centerpiece. It is made up of a number of small pieces so each guest takes part of the centerpiece home.

Flowering plants

Herbs

Breakaway centerpieces - could jazz up with some color.

Succulents

@Zaraj_Will:  I’d just avoid draping if it were me and spend the money on up lighting. I just think low ceilings IMO don’t look good with anything draping them 

In your pic above looks fine with maybe a few lights if you want them….. In your pic it doesn’t have draping on the ceiling just a wall back drop which would also be ok

After looking back at your pics I notice a very lovely fireplace! I always think its a great idea to create a focal point in the room and I think if I were you I’d decorate that area especially since its in the center of the room!! 

 

I think it would be so pretty to have your fireplace with lots of candles (if your ceremony will be dim or dark outside)

 

or something like this if it is not dark

you mentioned you liked greenery so this would be pretty

 

This might be too formal for you but its gorgeous and though I’d throw it out there

 

I really think if you play off the fireplace you wouldn’t have to do much else in the room except centerpieces!!

@Zaraj_Will: 

 

the herbs sound nice as a centerpiece and a favor. You can get a lot off glassware items at the dollar tree If ou wanted to do candles for the centerpieces and maybe forgo the favors
