I think your coordinator would be able to help with how many drinks per person. 

On the decor, it would HIGHLY depend on your budget, style that you are going for (elegant, rustic, victorian, cafe, etc.). 

If that is all open though, being on the water, you might want to get some stand heaters for night. 

Amazing ceilings though, I can just picture draping and chandeliers from that or along the edges, or lighting up the posts. Endless possibilities..you just have to pick your style (and/or theme), colors, budget, etc..then go from there.

Kerrierou: If it’s an evening affair, I would stick with lighting.

I would swag globe or cafe lights if you can fit them in your budget, mini lights if not.

If you choose to go with mini lights, stock up when they are on sale just before and after Christmas.

If you want globe or cafe lights, watch the ads on http://www.adhuntr.com to fins some that another bride is selling after her wedding.

If you can find a great deal, I would hang a lantern in each section of the exterior wall. If you can’t use real cdles, LED candles look great in hanging lanterns. You can choose the style of lantern you like best:


kerosene style from Amazon


Mid White Moroccan Lantern

If you have the budget, you could rent battery operated chandeliers and hang one from each of those black metal lights. Those lights are also the perfect place to swag string lights.

Google image hula hoop chandeliers. There are a million different ways to make them.  I’ve seen them done with ribbons, flowers, lights, bottles, glow sticks, silverware.  Almost anything.  I tried to add a pic of one but it wouldn’t let me for some reason.  I also like adding ribbon or lace strips to mini lights.  You could hang them instead of using them as the aisle decorations.  Love your venue, btw!

Kerrierou: Do you mind sharing where this Pavilion is and how much it was to rent it? (it looks beautiful!!) I have a friend with a very limited budget for their wedding and they’re thinking about just not even having one. I’m looking for low-budget ideas in RI. I’m thinking if I can gather some ideas maybe she’ll see it’s possible to do a wedding for $3000 (their budget). Thanks in advance! -Karen
