Hi, Im new to this site. I found many things helpful while I was looking through it, so I decided to join.
The question I have is do you all think my reception venue (which is a lodge) would look nice in bright summery colors? Pics of my venue and inspiration board follw. My colors are like a royal blue, fuchsia, and purple. You will see in the pics that there are bears and moose heads. Those can be taken down….Thanks in advance!

THAT is a gorgeous space! I would use a lot of white drapery on the balcony where the couple stands and white tablecloths with overlays in your colors. Your flowers will bring out your lovely color scheme then against the white- while allowing the lodge feel to be in the background… and not predominant. I see there is also a light fixture with the animal motif- if you wish, you can do fabric or paper covers for things like that. I see David Tutera use sheeting and lighting tricks like that all the time on his shows. It really is quite pretty- best wishes.

I agree that using a lot of white will bring out the summer colors. Lovely venue 🙂

We are color twins!! (I might add in some accents of lime or emerald and red to play up a jewel tone feel but my focus is on the blue (because or venue has blue chairs) purple and fuchsia (my two fave colors!)
This is the inspiration board I used (the venue with the hanging streamers looks kinda like yours!):
I love your venue! And I think it will look gorgeous Do you have any idea of a theme besides the colors youa re going for? The wood immediately makes me think of summer camp, a country rustic vibe or vintage romantic with lots of flowers and candles. I can just picture people dancing here! I just noticed that altar up above the floor – how cool is that! Are you having the ceremony there too?
Here’s a few ideas that might appeal more to you for your venue in the summer:
