Just ignore it. Pick the colors you like. A nice summery color like this green will draw the eyes upward.

Ignore it.

I was mortified when I saw the carpet in our chapel… it was a disgusting orangey red color, and our colors were blue, green, and purple! I just sucked it up and delt with it though, and didn’t even try to cover it up. I am glad I didn’t, because looking back at the pictures you don’t even notice the carpet! I am glad I did not put in the effort.

Ignore it and create a color scheme around it! The carpet at our venue is super ugly, too! We are hiring someone to do uplights to try and disguise it a bit more, too!

@happyface:  because venue owners love them!  People can can drop all sorts of food, smash it into the carpet, and create all sorts of stains that don’t show up!

If you’re having an evening wedding…lighting!!!

I HATE the carpet at my venue – it’s awful – I actually had venue regret for a long while because of it. Thankfully I met a fantastic lighting guy at the last bridal show I went to who showed me pictures of how he takes the focus off the carpet.

Here’s an example of the peach up-lighting I think I’ll be going with:

No one will care about the carpet or stare at it for any period of time.

Uplighting and lots of other decor to distract.

I agree… ignore it… And people will notice YOUR decor, not the venue’s!

@AlwaysSunny:  Isn’t it easier to wash if it’s flooring, why have ugly carpet if you have steam clean it for thousand of dollars?

To me, late summer is sunflowers; which I think would go really well with the carpet, rather than argue with it.  Great venue, btw!

I have NEVER remembered what any wedding’s carpet have looked like, or even really noticed it.
