I’m assuming your reception will be under the covered veranda & the ceremony on the dock?

For starters, lighting, esp candles does really help since the mood, so I would def have LED/flameless candles inside votives (go with the foggy ones, that way people can’t tell that they arn’t real.)

And secondly, it looks like one of the pics, that someone hung lanterns? You could do what I did, and hang lanterns from fishing wire (therefore no taping, no nails) just simply tying string and letting them hang. We did this in our covered veranda, that has similar ceilings to yours and put them in clusters to make the ceiling more “filled.” here are some pics so you can get an idea:

Also, you could drape curtains/panels, like they do in tents. This will create a dramatic ceiling, and once again you can tie it w/out nails or tape.

Evening wedding:

If the top of the deck rail is flat, I would ring the whole thing with candles or luminarias. I would hang two flower arrangements from the posts that hold the lights.

I would consider hanging a string of battery operated cafe lights between the two posts.

Daytime wedding:

I would do simple DIY arrangements using yellow flowers and grey Dusty Miller in mason jars in place of the candles suggested above.

I would consider hanging bunting or a banner between the two posts.


or a floral curtain ( tie the fishing line around a rock at the bottom of each string to keep it from tangling in the breeze.
