So after searching and searching my fI and I finally found the perfect place to have our wedding. Its a wine bar and restaurant. Where the wedding will be is in the cellar room and patio. The cellar room has the typical stone walls with wine barrels and the patio has a fountain in it but outside of that it is very typical. Sorry I don’t have any pictures. What I really want to know is some ideas of decoration such as colors. I don’t want it to look like a funeral or gothic so I don’t want just black I like a little color but I want it to match. Just anything you would suggest would be great. Thanks for your help!

I saw this REALLY cute DIY posted by another Bee on here a few days ago. I was even trying to figure out how to add them to my growning DIY list and incorporate it in to my venue. But i think this definitely would benefit you. Here the link to the post buy Bubu82.

I think rich colours would work well, and burgundy is an obvious choice. But you could also choose a deep coloured green.
Lighting. Using up lighters against the stone would be beautiful. You can choose a range of colours (especially if they’re LEDs) to make it pop but white light would work just as well. The venue may know someone who regularly does event lighting for them. Just an idea.

What colors are the stone walls? Are they slate grey colored or brown colored? I would pick a color scheme based on that. Warm tones or cool tones. If you want to do any florals in your decor, it might be cool to talk to your florist about putting some flower heads into the fountain, IF the venue would allow you to decorate it. I’ve seen this done before and it’s really pretty!

My sister had wine bottle centerpieces (although we just used them as vases for flower, but that candle in wine bottle thread that MrsDiddles posted is awesome!) Anyway, maybe she went a little literal, but since she had the wine bottles incorporated, she used wine and champagne as her colors. The champagne color helped to keep things from getting too dark and the wine color (deep burgundy/purple) made things really warm.

I think lots of flowers and lighting is going to make the space from the way you described. If all flowers is too expensive I recently went to a wedding that did a combination of flowers and succlents that was gorgeous. You could also do lots of candles or lanterns as centerpiece.
Here are some pictures. Will you have long tables or round? Do you have any colors you are leaning towards right now?

@mjameson83: first off thanks for the pictures. That is what im looking for. I was starting to lean towards dark purple and green, the colors of grapes. I like the candle idea, but im still trying to figure out if they are allowed. From what Ive seen its a variety of rectangle and circle tables. its a restaurant so they dont have the typical big round tables. So I need small centerpieces so they dont take over the whole table. I was thinking on each table a wine bottle with flowers coming from the top and two wine glasses with floating candles.

Remember that you don’t have to use wine bottles in the expected manner.
You can cut them to look like cylinder vases:
you can cut off the bottoms to use as candle holders
you can cut them on an angle near the neck for a more modern look
you can cut the tops off and use them as vases
or you can paint them white( on the inside or outside) then attach a square of chalkboard paper
