Hello, I LOVE my reception venue (and it was the only one available for the date i wanted) BUT its a pretty modern boutique style hotel and my vision/ taste always takes me to anything shabby chic with a hint on vintage.. I love champagne gold, peaches, lavender and creams. My dress is champagne and very red carpet looking, boys are in grey suits and BM are in a “misty Rose” color… My venue however is shades of grey, black and green… How can i merge Shabby Chic wihtout spending a fortune on decor? Ideally id love to avoid chair covers because they are so expensive.

@jenpritchard86: I wouldn’t worry to much about the walls but however maybe gold flakes on the tables would help give a pop

@jenpritchard86: Although your venue has a modern edge, it is also done in neutral colors so you are lucky that way.
Do you or anyone close to you sew? Or know how to use fabric glue?
You can buy inexpensive lace placemats on EBay, sew or glue them together and make little covers for only the top of the chair. You can sell them after the wedding.
Choose ivory or cream tablelcoths, add blush nakins. Use champagne or gold for the base of the centerpiece or votive candles.
vinatge teacups would make lovely centerpieces with peach, cream and pick roses, dahlias, mums. If you kee your flowers seasonal, the cost is more reasonable.

love this palette but it’s a little more hollywood glam than you would want I think, so picture black lace covered mason jars, blush florals, maybe birdcages and manzanita branches

Those lights and walls can be pretty modern and distracting. One solution you can look into is drapes that cover the walls. They can even come out to where the ceiling is inset. Then you could also match them to your colour pallette or a more rustic color. Anything is possible when it comes to transforming a space!
