Your venue sounds FAB!

Honestly, morning coats are intended for the AM.  Simple metal chairs:  do you mean folding chairs?

LOL at the obstinate groom.  My HTB is hell bent on wearing a pinstripe suit, despite looking slightly like an extra from Guys and Dolls.  You’ve gotta pick your battles.  🙂

But honestly the fancy-shmancy table settings coupled with family style Italian and brown folding chairs might seem a bit odd together.  I’m all for eclectic, but..it might be tough to pull off.

I LOVE the Italian homestyle idea. That sounds really different yet amazing. I am trying to imagine your venue and it seems like it will be really special. 

About the morning coats, I would let it go. If you have already gotten into an almost fight with him about it, then you know he really wants to wear it. You got to pick your dress so it would be nice if he could wear his morning coat, even at 6 pm. I’m sure it will look nice in pictures.

About the folding chairs, what if you spruced them up a bit? Such as draping them in a nice fabric or decorating them with some flowers. If you can try and disguise the fact that they are metal folding chairs you might feel better about it. Stick to your vision!

First off..no one notices the chairs once they sit down.  Second…your groom should get to wear what he wants.   Third….it sounds lovely..stop stressing and push forward….I would love to be a guest at your wedding.  The only thing I might add is since it is a woodsy atmosphere something about floating candles bothers me. I think clumps of different sized votives would fibetter.  Minor tweak.

you could always get chair covers, and that might pull things together a little bit?
