Yesterday we went to finalize our reception/ceremony location. I ABSOLUTELY love the place. It is a restored old barn turned into a great resturant/event hall. My issue is that to get from the parking lot into the hall there is a 100 foot, semi open hallway. It feels like it needs dressed up somehow but I really have no idea how. I am trying to stay away from flowers, which is my mom’s idea for things. I have been trying to upload pictures of the hallway but I can’t seem to right now.
Does anyone have any ideas for me??

What is your theme?
I would recommend chandeliers along the hallway (like what we did for our aisle) if it went with your overall theme and formality of your wedding. 🙂

How about lighting or candles?

@faeriegirl05: When you say “semi-open” do you mean walls and no roof, or roof and only half walls?
If it will be on the dark side, you could use hanging glass candle holders

The entrance into the hallway from the parking lot
Bend in the hallway
Long stretch of the hallway
I was finally able to open up the window to get pictures loaded so there they are.
@Treejewel19: we are doing a lot of DIY since we are on a budget so its is learning towards a casual home spun feel. ribbon ball centerpeices, fried chicken on the menu…
@julies1949: the roof is enclosed (absolutely beautiful) and the windows are open, with a ledge for things.

@faeriegirl05: Honestly, I think I would maybe just hang some sort of lighting (thinking Christmas types of lights – the white ones), and call it day. I kinda think the hallway has a ton of character to it already, of which, does not need too much altering, if any at all if you choose to do nothing !!! Love it!

Is the only time guests will see the hallway when they’re walking into the wedding, and leaving at the end of the night? Don’t stress over the small stuff!!!
If you want to do cheap decor, you could save glass jars (spaghetti sauce, salsa, etc.), rinse them out, peel the labels off, and wrap them in lace or ribbon or twine. Then you could put small candles (real or LED) inside the jars and arrange them on the ledge. It would look beautiful, especially at night!
