The desks are super cool! I’d almost use the desks to form an aisle then put chairs on either side. Then you could decorate the desks with floral garlands swagged from the beginning of the aisle to the end, and some sort of runner with some flower petals. Of course, I would want some sort of arch or something to decorate the space by the windows and tie in all the florals.

Are you providing seating during the ceremony? Are there enough desks to have your guests sit at the desks? If not, I would use the desks on either side of the aisle, and fill out the rows with the chairs.

I would hang a chalkboard between the two windows. Remember to clean the other chalkboards with a damp cloth.

Because it’s in a schoolhouse, you could make a paper chain arch or a hanging backdrop

Are you embracing the ‘schoolhouse’ vibe?

My two cents: it is a cute room.  You could actually do a lot with it, but I would be sure to keep it in the same vibe – otherwise it will all clash.

I don’t like fake flowers in any way. I do like  <u>julies1949 </u>suggestion about the garland, and I also like <u>slomotion </u>idea about cutting the room down the middle with a string of the desks, flanked on either side with the seats.  you could also use the desks under the chalk boards to create a table to display your refreshments.

Personally, I would embrace the theme with big red apples, simple gerbers in simple vessels, maybe some gingham fabric for table cloths, burlap, and even the paper garland idea for the canopy.  get creative and make something rather elaborate.  construction paper is cheap!

also, give the boards a good washing, and maybe have someone with pretty penmanship write out the lyrics to your first dance song, or a favorite love poem or something. 

I think it is a great turn of events. be sure to post photos!
