@MiraJo:  Firstly, I would NOt cover those chairs. They are too cute. Chair covers will just give you another cookie-cutter wedding.

I like the stage for the head table as it is elevated a few inches and would make it easier for your guests to see speeches, toasts etc. It would work either way, depending on how many guests you have. If you have a big wedding the stage may not be large enough.

 

Do those icicle lights stay? I would consider supplementing them with some globe lights or mini-lights. You have the beams so you can easily swag the lights.

 

 

For something different, you could wrap mini lights around hula hoops- looks like wedding rings

 

 

You could also wrap grapevine balls with lights

 

 

Large grapevine balls can be expensive. You can make an alternative with old bamboo blinds from the thrift store. Soak them in water to soften them before making the ball shape.

 

 

I wouldn’t worry about it not looking “weddingy” enough. By the time you add linens, cutlery, glassware, plates, centerpieces, napkins, it will look very nice.

 

Love that cake pic! Have you decided on your colors? What are you using for centerpieces?

@MiraJo:  Gold and mint will be lovely. I thought of this- these doors would look great either at the entrance to the venue , on either side of the head table, or the cake table. You can paint and distress some inexpensive old doors.
