I think it looks very elegant just as it is.

It does need SOMETHING, but not a lot of something so I definitely wouldn’t stress about it.

The only things I can think to add would be basic:

1. Either flower arrangements or some type of decoration on the aisle chairs (or every other chair depending how much seating you have),

2. A personalized aisle runner, and 

3. Something hanging (the drapery is lovely, though) from that space like tissue poms or a DIY flower curtain in place of the drapery.

steny03:  The beauty of your venue is its’ simplicty. You do not need to add anything that would  turn it into any generic ceremony site.

If I did anything at all, I would place two potted cypress trees (because they are so narrow,you can rent these from a landsape supplier) one on either side of the entrance to the arch. If you will be outside after dark in the same area, you could add mini lights to the trees.

Alternatively, you could hang one beautiful battery operated chandelier from the arch, so that it will show in your pictures.

steny03:  we are making kusudama origami paper balls and hanging them off chairs. Future Mother-In-Law has a flower allergy and I am too cheap to buy flowers. We are using bright colored paper and an old textbook, so the cost is next to nothing since we have all the suppies. Inside each ball Fiance and I are writing wishes for our wedding. It’s a lot of labor though, so you’ll really need to commit to time, but it is a fun non floral idea. I’ve also seen brides turn them into topiaries too. Personally, I would pay for the fabric since it does add something unless the cost is huge. You could also add manzanita branches in pots draped with fabric by the pillars to give it a similar effect if you don’t want the venue to put the fabric up.

 

Also, party city has aisle runners for cheap in white. You can also get fake flower petals and glue them together as an aisle runner (and then resell it). Dollar tree sells fake flower petals you can order in bulk. Real flower petals are also pretty cheap too…

I would consider twining greenery or flowers on the arches and down the poles of the canopy.
