Well… The wood floors have a  herringbone pattern, which is fairly common in grand Paris apartments and you have those beautiful chandeliers… What about a Parisian theme? With a moss green and gold color scheme?

Well outside is a  pretend castle, but inside  is just  good standard reception centre ,so I think you could do almost anything really .

If you are going to be spending  much time out of doors with  that facade as  a feature , then the medieval/fairytale theme makes sense , and you might want to try and do some medieval style decor inside  ( I don’t know what though , rushes on the floor,  lol? ) More seriously,   maybe featuring   candles and flower and other such natural/old style  things. But  if all you are doing  is  walking in, I’d go with   something like claroquesi suggests .

Have  you chosen your dress or  dress style, veil etc yet? I’m thinking by your screen name  and the scroll style  invitation  are leaning to the medival/fairytale.

Wow! That’s stunning. I could see something very “English garden” looking great here. Think ivory, greenery, and champagne. That would be so classic and easy to find things for. Google “English garden” and you’ll see what I mean!

I’d think colors first, and that will depend on the time of the year… Seems pretty clear it’ll need to be a reniassance/fairy tale theme.

  • Purple is supposed to be a color of royalty, could fit into that theme (also popular in the area due to LSU)
  • If the wedding is during the fall, deep rich colors like burgandy, hunter green, etc would look really nice.
  • The venue itself adds so much to the theme, and I think I remember the grounds having a lot of greenery so even just white florals with some gold or metallic accents could look lovely
