@Litbystars: 

Do you have pics of the venue or something similar?

Have you chosen colors?

Are you familiar with 3M Command Hooks and strips. They are temporary and can be used on and removed from any surface including wallpaper with no damage whatsoever. You may need to do a demo for the venue to convince them that they are ok to use.

You can use the hooks for anything you want to hang.

You could hang bunting across the hall- use doilies or lace

Cream Wedding bunting, new #vintage wedding decorations  www.finditforweddings.com

you could alternate the bunting with strings of globe lights- they are also called cafe lights

Perfect! @Susie Casper

My cousin got married at the West Ham town hall last year, and they had the same restrictions.  She ended up renting trees for the entry and putting fairy lights in them.  She had 6, 3 on each side to make a sort of entry aisle, and all of her tables had white tablecloths and tall centerpieces.  The hall was so pretty, it didn’t need anything else.  She also had a 3-pieced lattice screen that my uncle made to display the table diagrams.  It was painted white and had ivy twining through the top and down the sides with a few flowers tucked in here and there.  The guest book was set up on a table at the entry as well, with a tall centerpiece on it.  Somewhat of a garden-y feeling, but it was really lovely.

The venue I am using has the same restrictions and has the same hooks you are talking about. I am going to use lots of string and pom poms something like this! If you use different colours and sizes it will do the job I’m sure!! All the best!!

Uplighting would give a dramatic impression and not require attaching anything to the walls.

@Miss Jackrabbit:  I’m so glad you linked these – someone in my office mentioned them by description, but my googling hadn’t brought anything up!

 

 

OP-  using the hooks for fairy lights might be lovely, too!

I say bunting as well… but I’m prejudiced, because that’s what I used for mine!
