I think you can include all those things. Theme weddings tend to look better when there’s a lot of variety and not just one motif on everything all over the place.

Are you into love stories? I totally see that. Naming tables after famous couples…

Having a sign with…Today we start our Once upon a time and get our happily ever after. 

Little love stories as favours.

@SoontobeMrsFisette:  To me the setting has a vintage feel, and I think a few items that are antique, or classic in terms of looks, may be a good start. Here’s a few ideas to get started:

@SoontobeMrsFisette:

Your venue does have a vintage/victorian charm that I would build on for the garden wedding theme. You don’t really NEED a theme, colors will do just fine, but a theme does help when makiing choices e.g this vintage compote for the centerpiece vase vs a modern stainless steel or brushed nickel cube vase.

Do those chandeliers come with the tent? Or was that just for one wedding? They are gorgeous!!!

I think the colors in your last pic would be beautiful.

Peaches and cream with a hint of jade green

peaches and green wedding color palette: peach, cream, mint and fawn. Not even for a wedding. I just want this chair. My room maybe?

White galvanized buckets of cream, peach, yellow and green blooms lined the aisle.

@SoontobeMrsFisette: vintage schoolhouse elements would be fun. Reading flashcards with pictures for table “numbers,” vintage books as part of the centerpieces, wooden pencils with your name and date as favors, atlas pages punched into confetti, library card pockets to hold the menu, paper with large lines (like they use when teaching kids to write) as guestbook pages…it doesn’t have to be overly themey, but small little surprises.
