I’ve seen urns look really good – plus, you can fill them for cheap by buying a flowering bush (like a hydrangea) and plopping it in. If the urns at the venue are ugly, you could buy your own. Rental places may have them.

You could rent columns and put floral arrangements or hanging baskets on top.

You could also use an arbor or build a chuppa.

You could put down flower petals or luminaries on the ground. 

Or, you could do nothing. I think your guests will figure it out 😉 – and IMO the photos look best with nothing (but your beautiful view!) in the background.

We rented some nice columns (about 3 ft high) from our florist, and had large silk arrangements on them.  They looked really nice.  The total cost (for renting the columns and the silk arrangements) was about $100, which we thought was pretty reasonable – given that we couldn’t think of anything else to do that would have cost less.  The arrangements were made to go with (although not match exactly) our live flower arrangements.

we don’t like the arch thing, either. we’re doing something similar to this:

the two arrangements we’re getting (which will be in large floral urns and will be reused for our sweetheart table) are about $125 and the curly willow arch is about $125, as well. we might reuse the curly willow for the cake table, guestbook table, or bar during the reception.
