We’ve found a nice venue (a refurbished barn) at the right price, but the carpet gives a strong fall/winter vibe. How can we work with this carpet for a late summer wedding? Any ideas welcome – colors, inspiration pics, anything!
The carpet from another angle, under less light. As you can see it’s primarily dark red and gold.

Just ignore it. Pick the colors you like. A nice summery color like this green will draw the eyes upward.

I was mortified when I saw the carpet in our chapel… it was a disgusting orangey red color, and our colors were blue, green, and purple! I just sucked it up and delt with it though, and didn’t even try to cover it up. I am glad I didn’t, because looking back at the pictures you don’t even notice the carpet! I am glad I did not put in the effort.

Why do people create ugly carpets? LOL

Ignore it and create a color scheme around it! The carpet at our venue is super ugly, too! We are hiring someone to do uplights to try and disguise it a bit more, too!

@happyface: because venue owners love them! People can can drop all sorts of food, smash it into the carpet, and create all sorts of stains that don’t show up!

@happyface: Haha! That’s what I’m saying. Just go with hardwood, please!!

If you’re having an evening wedding…lighting!!!
I HATE the carpet at my venue – it’s awful – I actually had venue regret for a long while because of it. Thankfully I met a fantastic lighting guy at the last bridal show I went to who showed me pictures of how he takes the focus off the carpet.
Here’s an example of the peach up-lighting I think I’ll be going with:

No one will care about the carpet or stare at it for any period of time.

Uplighting and lots of other decor to distract.

I agree… ignore it… And people will notice YOUR decor, not the venue’s!

@AlwaysSunny: Isn’t it easier to wash if it’s flooring, why have ugly carpet if you have steam clean it for thousand of dollars?

Hmm…uplighting…who does that? I’ve heard or some DJ companies doing it, but I can’t find any. We’re in the St. Louis area. Any ideas?

To me, late summer is sunflowers; which I think would go really well with the carpet, rather than argue with it. Great venue, btw!

I have NEVER remembered what any wedding’s carpet have looked like, or even really noticed it.
