This is the room we will be having our ceremony in (yay). Its a 1920’s art deco style room on the coast in the middle of our wine region
I am not really a flower person and neither is Fiance.. we are also not really ‘fabric and draping’ people either (difficult, I know!). We dont even have a theme or a colour scheme… the closest thing to a colour scheme we have is dried lavender bouquets and a purple Maid/Matron of Honor dress. I dont want it looking like a stereotypical wedding with tulle and white flowers, but I dont know what else will compliment the space!
What I am after is something rustic and old world. I know we will be having white gladiator chairs, I do plan on removing the ugly curtains and letting in heaps of natural light and the fireplace will be roaring (as its in winter)… but thats about it! I know I am not making my life any easier with all the conditions, but I just cant think of anything that I like!
Any suggestions welcome!

I’d bring in some potted trees…big ones,like Palm…are you sure they’ll let you remove the drapes?

I would bring in a lot of candles- if you’re having the ceremony in front of the fire place, you could put candles along the mantle, and maybe some tall candelabras on either side for an ‘old world’ feel.

I agree with the candles along the mantle, lots of them either pilar ones or tapered in crystal holders. I think an isle runner would be nice. And I agree with PP either some tall candalabras or some branches/ flowering branches in a tall vases.

ok cool, candles are a good idea 🙂 I think an aisle runner will also be nice… would candles running along the aisle work, or are they just asking to be kicked over?

Here are a few non-flower ideas.

I think if you put the candles in something, some kind of holder, for the aisle it would work better. And make sure it is wide enough for 2 people to walk down side by side. (And leave enough room for your train on your dress to spread out, if you have one. On one of the wedding shows I recently saw the Brides train knocked over the candles) I love the way a candle lit aisle looks thougth so romantic and pretty.

If you do something to weight the candles down, like putting them in a large glass with stones, they are much less likely to tip.
