I’m using blue lanterns and just hanging them from the chairs in the aisle using silver ribbon (you could use gold). This depends on the time of your wedding as to how cool that would look, it may loose pizzaz in the daytime.

Another idea would be to keep it simple and get some blue/purple/teal/gold fabric to drape over the top of the gazebo and then also over/through the backs of the chairs that are in the last row and then those closest to the aisle. Pops of color but MANY less man hours than the pomanders.

If you want to do the feathers on the chairs, it could be totally prepared ahead of time and wired onto a clip. The co-ordinator then just has to clip tham on the chairs.This would only take a few momenst and shouldn’t need your help.

My first thought when I looked at your pics was to cover up the yellow flowers in front of the gazebo.

Will your venue let you place other potted flowers in your colors? They don’t even need to be planted- just get some beautiful hanging baskets and place them on the ground in front of the other plants.

You could repeat that look by using a clamp to hold two baskets with the same colored flowers on the front pillars of the gazebo

You can get clamps like this-called pipe clamps to secure the baslet to the pillar.

@NYshoppingirl: those lanterns are beautiful! They will look great on shepherd’s hooks.

Where are you ordering them from?

I’m using these with white flowers. They’re jumbo mums and I bought the pre-made mason jars at Kirklands. My reception is outside, so I’m using shepherd hooks. You can throw in a few peacock feathers.

Instead of pomanders you could maybe do pom poms instead. These would give you a similar feel: http://www.futuregirl.com/craft_blog/2009/5/giveaway-martha-stewart-pom-pom-kits.aspx and they probably take a lot less time to make. The Martha Stewart website http://www.eksuccessbrands.com/marthastewartcrafts/Products/Vintage_Girl_Pink_Pom_Poms_44-20021.htm has a kit that makes 5 pom poms for about $17.
