maybe you could do something with organza? there’s a seller on ebay that sells 11″ x 25 yards for $7.99, and they have all kinds of kinds.

Otherwise I would suggest tulles, flowers, pomanders.

Maybe lots of paper lanterns? Can buy very cheap on ebay and will look stunning at twilight! match to wedding colors?

I would do some draping like in the photo below, which you can swag with some baby’s breath or wildflowers and twine. You can make and hang doily lanterns or embroidery hoops with lace.

 

We had a rustic, vintage wedding this past fall, and did some draping and embroidery hoops. We wanted to do the lanterns as well, but ran out of time. I was so pleased with our wedding though. Best wishes to you!

My only problem with the lanterns is that they aren’t as cheap as everyone thinks the are. If you’re only using a few, they aren’t too bad, but to get a very full look, it’s quite costly.

10″ lanterns are $1.06, and they go up from there, so if you want that multiple sized look, you’re going to be paying $1-$6 per lantern. For a full look you’re gonna need like 100? Depending on how much space you need to cover. When you add in lights for the lanterns, it makes them even more expensive! I had looked into doing our venue in paper lanterns, but man, wayyyy too costly. I’m better off going with organza & lights.

If you want it to be cheap, why not just rope lights? You can get a bunch of them and run them along the beams for a warm light.

@jenilynevette:  That is a lot to decorate! I think if you try to fill the whole thing up it would cost a fortune!

What about just decorating the entrace with a the top portion where people enter?

Or something across the top like this? Maybe lilttle things hanging down but not quite so far?

You could drape window sheers with twinkle lights behind it?  Then, you could line the aisle with candles in glass cansiters?  I don’t think either of these would be terribly expensive to do.

It really depends on your personal style though.
