@jmLL:  What are your colors?  Do they allow you to add table runners?  Also some riboon or tulle or something like that around the stair case would brighten it up.  Other than table runners you could do an eye catching centerpiece with those napkins to liven it up.  I put paper dahlias with menus at each setting and that really brightened up the room.  If those chairs are going to be covered I would suggest sashes for them.

@jmLL: For the outside, candles and lanterns really don’t have a lot of impact if the ceremony is in the daytime.

Do you have any theme chosen yet?

You could edge the stairs with pomanders,  floral, moss etc



Giant paper flowers could also line both sides of the stairs. Wire them onto the railing.

Google “outdoor aisle decor” Most of those ideas can also be used for the stairs.


 For the inside, I would incorporate the wall color in your wedding palette.

Go to 

Scroll down on the right, click on the closest yellow and you will see all the palettes they have created using that color.

With that much yellow, I might use the white linens but then add a runner in one of my other colors.

A bright citrus palette would look great in spring, but there are many palettes to choose from.

What about looping some tulle through the railing with flower groupings on each end.

What about like blue/teal and yellow for colors? Or silver/grey with yellow?

@jmLL, I don’t have any pictures.  We were actually having a hard time getting in the place to look at because we weren’t members, so we went up there to ask who we needed to talk to, and lo and behold, they were like “oh, you can go look”.  That wasn’t even why we were in town, I just whined enough to get my fi to stop by there.  I wasn’t prepared.   He had already made up his mind that is where he wanted us to have the reception, and didn’t need to look at it.  (It’s his home town, and he said that place was the nicest one in the area). It’s out of state, so I haven’t been back.  But we are getting married in 6 weeks, and I’ll put some pictures up.  I’ll notify you. 

I have made it a point to try add alot of cloth, just to soften the room up a bit.  The primary colors- blue and yellow- seemed a bit too harsh to me.  I haven’t seen my centerpieces.  That’s a whole nother story.  Fingers crossed!

What about pinwheels for outside?  They’d be very romantic during the day.  For a more elegant look you could buy/make all white ones.

I know it’s a little late in the game, and I’m a little behind on getting back in touch with you, but if these in any way help, then good.  If not, then no harm done!

I’ll start with a lighted pic. give you and idea what I was working with.


Ok, so the garter I was just showing off.  I made it.  😉  Sorry some of the pics are from a disposable, the rest from kelsey @ KPhotography.

@jmLL:  I would try to incorporate the color of the walls into your wedding colors.   It won’t clash and will make it the space look very custom if you lean into the color scheme already there.
