We are about 85% sold on this venue.. But will be planning an April wedding. With a high change of rain, I want to make sure I’ll be happy with an indoor or outdoor ceremony.
Here’s a picture of the indoor space. Do you ladies have any idea how I can spruce it up? I wanted to do candles

- Wedding: March 2015 - City Winery New York, NY
We did candles in large gold hurricanes. It seems like there are a lot of gold tones in the indoor space and the height of the hurricanes would keep the candles lit if you do end up going with one of the outside options.
Our event designer then scattered gold “glitter” – I think it was actually confetti of some sort – around the candles to make it shimmer more.
The backdrop is a sheer fabrick with twinkle lights behind it. I had my doubts when the designer was describing it, but I was happy with how it turned out.

Are you looking for decor that would work for inside or outside? I love the hurricane lamp suggestion, so cute. Maybe fabric draping on the ceiling if you’re looking for indoor-only decorations? It might break up the wood tones and add an element of soft romance if that’s what you like. I can imagine pillar candles at different levels around you and your groom. What are your wedding colors?

Thanks for the input!!
im mostly looking for help with indoor decorating. I only mention the outside to see if you thought it was necessary that I buy a set of indoor AND outdoor decorations, since we won’t really know until the day of if it will rain.
I wasnt sure if the wine barrels/flowers/mason jars I’d planned for outside would transfer well indoors Since the space has such a different feel.
Lab: those pictures are beautiful! How did you hang the fabric ans lights?

Ps as far as colors thinking either pink and green or yellow and grey. We are less than 1 month into planning! 🙂

What a beautiful venue you have chosen!
I would try to plan decor that can be used either indoors or outdoors, something that can be moved quickly should the need arise.
The barrels and mason jars do seem a bit rustic for such a grand venue, even for the outside. I think I would lean more towards something vintage and elegant, rather than rural and rustic.
Do you have any relatives or friends who would let you borrow furniture pieces to use instead of the barrels?
you could use a larger piece as the altar
or add old doors for a backdrop
All of these can be easily moved inside in case of less than perfect weather.

thank you! I do love all those ideas. You think they wouldn’t look out of place inside?
Do you think an aisle runner woits help break up all the yellow? Maybe a few lanterns down the aisle?
there is a table already at the front where the “alter” will be.
heres a couple more pictures I found.
