You could def hang small votive candles!!  Or something easier, just hang twinkling white lights on them

I definitely think you should decorate the trees.  They almost form a natural arch framining where you and your Fiance will be standing – very pretty!

There are so many things you could do…You could hanging flowers on fishing line, paper lanterns, votives, white lights…oh!  You could make some tulle pomanders like Mrs. Beagle did here: http://www.weddingbee.com/2009/08/13/i-must-be-crazy/  to hang from the trees!

Let us know what you decide!

Will it still be light out during the ceremony? Ribbons could be really pretty. 🙂

Since the trees should be in full leaf by July I think the pomanders would really pop against the green leaves. You can do varying ribbon lengths so it will really look interesting. [attachment=688519,89369] [attachment=688519,89370]

That’s such a pretty location!!

I think you should hang mason jars from wire and put little candles in it!

I think a simpler arch would work there. Nothing to busy. Just a simple wooden or medal arch with little to no decor on it. And as someone previously suggested hang some votives there or some lanters.

Oh, I really like the idea of decorating the trees! They’re lovely trees and they really do frame the site. I like the hanging pomander idea!

Depending the color of the pomanders, I think they could potentially distract from you two- especially since the trees aren’t very tall. I love the idea of the twinkling lights and the votive candles.

I definitely say decorate the trees!  I like the idea of lights/candles, too!

More decorated trees….although I think the candles/laterns would have more impact at night.
