prinprin:  Will the venue allow you to use those beams? Beams are great for decor!

A good affordable option might be to do some hanging pom poms (I think that’s what they’re called) in your colors. My cousin just had a barn wedding and they had beams so they did this and it looked really pretty! (They also wrapped white Christmas lights around the beams, if you like that sort of thing!) Here are some photos of what I mean:

prinprin:  Something to think about-the blush and black bunting may photograph very spotty, with the black overpowering the blush.

I love the beams. They define the space beautifully. I would remove the pictures if you are allowed, but check ahead of time as sometimes the wall has faded so much around the pictures that it is even more noticeable when they are taken down.

Your decor is a bit vintage themed with bunting , lace and burlap. I would consider old doors for a backdrop if you can find any. If you check Google and Pinterest, you will find lots of examples.

Altar area made of old doors. Rent similar white & aqua doors from "Lovebirds Vintage Rentals" in Ephrata PA

something simple like this would also work. You can spread out the fabric on the side rings to cover those two windows.

prinprin:  I’m sure you’ve thought about this already but just in case you haven’t, it may be very difficult for pictures to turn out well with that much light coming from the door behind you. Just something to think about and talk to your photographer about maybe?

prinprin: I was going to suggest pomanders like crackktheskyy: has. I also like the last picture julies1949: suggested, haven’t seen that before.

I think it will be beautiful, especially with the chance of a few silhouette photos! I love the idea of doors as well…


Or maybe some sheer drapery to still allow the sun to shine through a bit while adding a soft touch to the alter?
