@MrsB-to-Be:  Oh my God, what a nightmare. I really dislike people who top trees. While pruning is good for some varieties, you can’t just slice ’em off — it creates weaknesses within the tree that lead to a higher chance of being blown over, dropping heavy limbs, etc etc!

OK. Rant over. I would say…do you know what kind of trees they are? Can you Google to see images of what topped ____ trees would look like 3 months after their topping so you have a better idea of what you might be dealing with?

If you decide to get married there, maybe just “ignore” the trees and focus on decorating the area of the ceremony. Can you put things in the ground? Your pomanders could go on shepherd’s hooks or in stands of curly willow. If nothing can go in the ground, look at what can go ON the ground instead — Google for images of people’s weddings who hold the ceremony on concrete patios and the like. Just an idea — good luck, and I hope that maybe these trees are crazy growers and you’ll have a full head of foliage by then!
