I think the backdrop sounds gorgeous and you don’t need anything else. 🙂

I agree. I think the natural backdrop will be more than enough!

I would use the swag more as aisl markers if you really want to bring the colours in, I think they might block the view a bit on the railing. If it’s in the evening maybe come candles/lanterns/twinkle lights but I would add anything else really if it’s so pretty. And maybe something simple at the front just to add emphasis if you don’t already have.

I agree with the pp’s. I don’t think you really need anything. The bride and groom are going to be the focus of attention no matter where the ceremony takes place.

Here are some pics:

garland and flower poms on the rail

4 posts with ribbons waving in the breeze- you could use patio umbrealla stands with a post inserted or build wood frame bases to support a wooden pole

tulle arch

wine barrels

2 elevated floral arrangements- you could place a potted plant or hanging basket on a log or length of 6×6″ or bigger

2 potted green trees

you could place two ready made planters from the nursery on the deck rail, or borrow some from a family member’s home
