Hello, I need all the creative minds I can get!
My reception venue has framed pictures of fish/sea life hanging on the walls… I’ve asked the coordinator to take them down for the wedding, but I am at a loss for ideas of what to hang in their place.
Here are the pictures:
Thanks for your help!!!

Maybe instead of putting something in their place, you could do ceiling draping. That would fill the room a little more, and you wouldnt have to worry about putting something in their place.

I agree, I think it’d look good with some ceiling draping or those lights in tulle.

I think that draping would be more pracitcal and a lot cheaper!

I would answer, but I share the same opinion as these lovely people. Draping would be gorgeous. 🙂

How do you do ceiling drapes? I have the same problem at my venue.

I’m having a decorator do mine. Mine will be the tulle with lights in them.. I’m sure you could find someone to do that for you for pretty cheap

Thanks for the replies, but I forgot to say that the restaurant won’t let me attach anything to the walls or the ceiling (except to the nails that are in for the existing artwork).
Trust me, ceiling draping was my first thought too 🙁
Any other ideas?

Are you into artwork? Try going to http://www.art.com. Look for artwork that you DO love. You can keep the artwork for your home after the wedding or give it as a gift to your wedding party. It may be less expensive to find an art student and commission them to do a few pieces for you to your taste. Just an idea.
If your not that crazy about art, what about a nice photo collage?

what about a hanging sconce or vase with flowers or candle inside? Not sure how large the nail is though.

What is the decorating style of your wedding?

I think that once she takes them down, you could do some simple uplighting to make the walls more fancied up. My walls were bare & I have to tell ya, I never noticed, but nice lighting would have been a treat!

Here’s a GREAT trick. I used this at my wedding. Take cheap stretched canvases (can buy in bulk online) and stretch fabric in a coordinating color or print over it and secure with a staplegun. It’s really easy, and cost effective – I used fabric from IKEA that had a fabulous print for $5.99 a yard, and their bolts are extra wide. And bonus, it’s something that guests won’t have really seen before, so it’ll be interesting! I did this at my wedding with 4 x 1 ft canvases to add height and color to an otherwise gray room, and everyone loved it. I also did a version of it in my apartment to display the fabrics i’ve collected from my travels all over the world!

What about photos of you and your and fiance? Or old family photos blown up?

@crayfish: I love this idea! I may have to steal it for future events…
