So…I woke up in the middle of the night and realized that my dream wedding isn’t going to happen. Why? Because we are having it at lunch time versus dinner.
I always envisioned a night time wedding – candlelight, dancing, the works.
The venue I am getting married at has tons of windows so my vision of candle light will not come to pass.
Any ideas ladies? How can I get the candle light effect?
Also, do people dance during day time receptions?

I’ve never been to a day time wedding, but I assume if you crank up music, take your husband out on the dance floor and tell your wedding party to do the same, people will figure it out!
I don’t know about candlelight. Unless you draw curtains…but I’d just use the natural light to your advantage.

i’ve been to one brunch wedding and it was beautiful! there was no candle light… but like jedeve said, natural light can be great too. they had dancing, but it wasn’t as much as night time weddings i’ve been to. it probably depends on your crowd though.

Do you have pictures of the venue? I would love to see them and give you some ideas! I bet others ladies would too!

Great idea gotitang!
You can go there and there is a slideshow it wouldn’t let me save the picture. The reception will be held in the dining room which is the second inside picture in the slide show.

Maybe you could do candelabras with taper candles for looks? Jafgifts.com has them at good prices. Or check out other lighting options at Save-On-Crafts.com

Just some questions. What are the colors in the carpet? It was hard to tell in the slideshow. Be sure that whatever colors you go with do not clash with the carpet!
As far as centerpieces go and lighting…..heres an idea. You can buy Decorative Gel balls at http://www.decorativewatercrystals.com My suggestion is to buy the clear balls and then put in food coloring to add whatever color you would like! Any style of vase is fine and then add something to the top of the vase! These gel balls give the illusion of light! You can even add some submersiable lights that will make the gel balls glow alittle in light or dark rooms!
Elegant or whimsical! You can’t go wrong with these!
Also I did a Lunch wedding one time at a venue that was very old. The bride did not have much money so I did all the arragements with plants that were in my neighborhood. I realized at the last minute that the party would not be dark! So I bought fabric and stapled the fabric to the inside of the window sill. Velcour (double sided wold also work if the venue will let you darken the room) It was a hit and there was plenty of dancing! Get a dj and alittle alcohol and people will dance!
