OKay what I really mean is… I was thinking on hanging paper lanterns, but now I’m thinkin stringed poms would be okay… small pom garland on the top. and I am going to have balloons by the posts.
just wondering what y’all can come up with… Its beautiful the way it is, and I do not want to take away from that, that is why I’m thinking small poms on a string would be great. Its in the day time in spring. My colors are oranges and blues.

I love the poms idea. they would look so pretty if you hung them up at all different heights. What color are your bridesmaids wearing? if they’re all wearing blue, for example, you coul dhang different shades of orange poms in the background. it would make forreally pretty pictures.

I would stay away from the balloons. What about hanging crystals and flowers? This way it won’t take away from the view but will dress it up just a little.

I would drape it in long white linens and then secure all of them around all the posts. Similar to what you would see poolside at a beach resort.

@pasquel: I have to agree. Crystals and flowers would definitely add and not detract.
Poms would pull the eyes to them and away from the structure and background. Clear crystals hanging around would reflect the light pulling the eyes inward and flowers wrapped around the poles would pull the eyes in even more. Especially if you stuck with more greens than flowers (think Ivy’s).

You could do a screen of butterflies, origami cranes or flowers.It would look pretty fluttering in the breeze.
If you want to do poms you could also put larger ones on each step on both sides at the front)weighted so they won’t blow away).
You can hang pomanders from ribbons in the different sections of the gazebo

That is awesome! yea, nix the balloons! i want to add to the natural beauty of the place, I too will be saving that photo, that is awesome:) and organic looking, i love it:)
This is for our 20th Anniversary Vow Renewal (this is the original space we got married at) I am not having bridesmaids actually. Just my daughter. Not sure yet what she is wearing, that is up to her. Something nice, I want my husband and sons to wear kahki pants and light blue button up shirts, well my 2 sons can wear polos of a different shade of blue, but I want my husband to wear a light blue shirt and kahki pants. He wont be comfortable in a suit.
I do like the idea though of decorating with the hanging poms, it just looks so…. i dont know, beautiful! And Crystals, I love bling, Why didn’t I think of that?
Thanks guys, please keep the ideas coming:) I’m getting a vision now:)

i’ve decided in the front of the “stage” i am going to do a bunting sign that says “HAPPILY EVER AFTER” we have changed our colors from blue and orange to blues, and yellow, with some ivory and orang as well. I know it sounds like alot, but its really not if you could see inside my head LOL.
I just can’t wait, and I am working on my DIY stuff before i have to go back to work… 🙂 i’m so excited, almost exactly 2 years away now. I can see how fast this is going to approach:)
please keep your ideas coming…
