Honestly I wouldn’t decorate too much, my venue is very elaborate as well and I plan on using simple candles and flower arrangements (with larger arrangements in the ceremony area and near doors, the cake, etc).  If you try to decorate “too” much it will just compete with the beautiful venue and look odd, so just incorporate your colors in the flower arrangements and do the simple decorations you already planned! Your venue is stunning, let it shine!

@MrsRevolutionize:  Gorgeous venue!! I agree with PP that this venue really doesn’t need much decor at all, or else it will end up looking too busy. Lots of flowers on the fire place mantels, floating candles in the fireplace, lots of candles, and you could do something really pretty the banister on the stairs.

It is an absolutely beautiful venue. And I think it speaks for itself, you really don’t need much decor. In fact, I think adding too much decor would really take away fromt he style of the rooms. I’d keep it simple with candles and flowers

@MrsRevolutionize:  I would use lots of candles and focus more on soft lighting and keeping floral arrangements small….like pp said I don’t think you need a lot. I think the building already has so much character and charm!

I tried finding stuff in your colors as an example….maybe something simple like this on the tables

I actually think wine bottles as decor are really pretty as well….maybe something like this if you are feeling crafty!

 

I also think it would fit your theme and setting to use books as part of your centerpieces

Oooh… That is a stunning venue. I personally would err on the side of minimal decorating. It looks like you’ve got gorgeous fireplaces and mantle pieces in a lot of room. I would go for candles, in varying heights, and simple vases of flowers, or long and low arrangements. You mentioned baby’s breath- that would look very effective and beautiful. To tie in the colours of your wedding you could use white church candles, with navy and gold ribbons. 

I’m very envious right now… Stunning venue! Please keep us in the loop with what you decide to do!
