Sounds like a designers dream to have a blank slate! Post pictures and maybe we will be able to give you specifics. How many people are you having? What is the formality? What are your wedding colors? Do you want a sweetheart table or just a bridal party table? Banquet tables or rounds? Large dancefloor or small? and budget? Sorry for all of the questions! lol

Candles, candles, candles! They make any space look so inviting, and they are really inexpensive.

As for table decor, Since you want a rustic theme.. maybe you could use candles in mason jars and lanterns. Do you plan on using flowers?

Can you tell us a little bit about your wedding? Any specific colors or theme? I would probably try to get table linens or a table runner in a color other than white since that will add a lot of color for relatively cheap. Like pp I like the candle idea. And maybe some river pebbles strewn around the tables? I don’t have any ideas for the wall except to set up a faux-tobooth in a corner, especially if you aren’t going to have dancing.

You could go to a thrift store and buy plates.. would prob come out cheaper than if you were to rent them 🙂

I would also figure out what I could do with the white board that is behind the head table in your picture:

-drape it with fabric, tulle, burlap

-get a giant blow up of your engagement pic or pics of you as children, or a pic of the two of you in the middle between the handles, and the parents on either side.

-or cover it with burlap then place your monogram in moss letters on top of that

just starting to let my mind wander…
