@LibrarianBride:  I think brides worry way too much about decor. Your guests will look at the centerpiece, no matter what it is, and say “Isn’t that pretty!”

They won’t say” Lovely centerpieces but they are a bit vintage in inspiration and this is a modern venue.” They wil understand if the location has to be switched due to rain.

I suggest you plan for an outdoor wedding. If it has to be moved, so be it.

This looks summery to me:

@LibrarianBride:  it’s a beautiful venue, hopefully it won’t rain. The inside is more “modern” but it had elements of mid-century modern and the 1950’s vibe totally plays into your colorful vintage look you want. I’d incorporate some geometric shapes like round billy balls (yellow and red) and purple puffballs (Gomphrena). Football mums and Lisianthus would look cool too.  Look at some vintage ’50’s Better Home and Gardens flower arranging books for ideas. The tables are cool looking so you might consider skipping tablecloths.  I like your idea of small glass vases and bottles. For a little interest you could dye the water different colors.  Vintage ’50’s tins could be fun too. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
