Ladies, I need your help and inspiration. I’m SOOOO bad at wedding planning. I’m trying to think of ways to really make our ceremony space beautiful! We’re getting married at a restaurant. The reception area is totally gorgeous, but I’m just worried about the room where the actual ceremony will happen.
Yes — the fire will be going during the ceremony.
The furniture and tables will be gone — except for wedding seating, of course!
What would you do with this space?

@Texasgirl82: You could add some large panels of fabric over the windows to soften the brick and create drama. I would also add a runner down the aisle and maybe some pilars with flowers? Some uplighting could really make it look nice too.

@Texasgirl82: is it going to be dark outside / evening wedding – because low light and lots of candles would look beautiful.

That space is so fabulous! I am jealous. You don’t need to do much, there are so many tones and cool things to look at. I would go minimal, decorate around the windows to play up or down the natural light, depending on the time of the day.

@Texasgirl82: As pp’s have stated, it owuld help to know the time of day. Your venue is beautiful and doesn’t need embelishment.
I am assuming you are getting married in front of the fireplace.
I would hang something on the fireplace- a monogram, a wreath etc.
I would not put anything on the window sills , choosing instead to focus attention on the altar area.

@julies1949: Wow, those are gorgeous photos. Thank you so much for sharing.
It’s an evening wedding. It will be dark outside, so I’d love to incorporate some candle elements.

@Texasgirl82: Is there a mantel on the fireplace? It’s hard to tell from the pic. If there is, you could line the mantel with candles.
If there is no mantel, I would line the window sills candles so that they guide the eye to the fireplace.
You could still place a wreath on the fireplace, but line it with battery operated fairy lights.
