I went with minimal decor for our ceremony just because the natural backdrop was already beautiful (and because I was so over the wedding planning by the time I got around to thinking about ceremony decorWink).

I only have guest photos at the moment but I really wanted chandeliers/bling and soft colors:

We had an outside ceremony as well.  However, since our winter was warmer than expected we weren’t too sure what we would get snow, blizzard or rain.  I didn’t want to spend money on flowers to have them die due to the cold…so I used curly willow, a few roses, candles, and wood discs leading up to 2 urns at the altar.

I really wanted an altar with willow across the top as well as upright but if the weather was really bad we were gonna move to the inside room and the altar would be too difficult to move.  I loved our urns and I really felt like we were in a forest with trees all around us.  It really made it feel cozy at the front for us during the ceremony.

Here are a few pics:

We went heavy on the greenery in our ceremony space.

Our wedding is going to be outdoors, on a deck here at one of the state parks. It’s really a beautiful setting on it’s own, so I will probably just do something simple. I was thinking of hanging some kind of tissue paper poms, ribbons, etc from the arch we bought.

Here was my ceremony space. I didn’t want a ton of decor because I loved the space how it was and didn’t feel a need to spend a ton on the ceremony.We did heavy flower petals down the aisle and two big sprays up front.

Here is the entire space
