Below is a photo of the gazebo where our officiant, me and Fiance will stand when we get married! I already have shephard’s hooks to hang flowers down the asile, but this gazebo is going to be the center of attention and I have no idea what to do with it! The ceremony space is very tiny. I have, oh…1.5 months to make something if need be (cue panic!).
So let’s hear those ideas!

I dont’ think you need to do too much to it. Maybe some pedastals with nice flower arrangements on either side of the entrace way. or you could also drape some tulle on the inside if you wanted. Like this
you could hang lanterns inside or christmas lights around the outside

I would do lots of flowers around the top just under the roof.
Definitely petals down the aisle.
And you could ahng ribbons from the windows behind you to frame it out more and dress it up.

you could always do an aisle runner with some flower petals to go with the sheapard hooks/flowers and then you don’t really need to worry too much about decorating the gazebo. Maybe just a few more flowers here and there to tie it in together.
or maybe something as extravagant as this – and you could even take those vases and put floating candles in them on the gazebo ledges

I dont like the tulle for an outdoor event. I used tulle at my wedding but that was indoors and worked better with the look. Personally I would have hanging paper cranes in and around the gazebo like this.

OH MAN!!!!! I LOVE THESE!!!
hmmm…I love the paper cranes, the ribbon, petals and large floating candle jars. I wonder how to pull this all together… 🙂

IFyou want to combine those you could hang the paper cranes and the ribbons from the first two openings at the side of the gazebo entrance. Doing it all around might be too much. You could do a a few ribbons/ cranes/ ribbons/cranes to mix them up. Then have a runner with the flowers on the side. The huge floating candle jars might be too big beside the chairs, so you could use smaller jars and cluster 2 or 3 of them on alternating sides of the aisle. YOu can fil some jars with floating paper cranes to tie in the theme.
But I’d be careful with the paper cranes unless it’s going to be a whole theme throughout the reception as well. I think it would be weird to have the cranes and the ribbons in the gazebo and then have a completely different feeling and decor in the reception!
