We are doing uplighting to combat that. Is there anyway way you can do that

We did, and I thought it turned out fairly well. I mean, it was obviously not the Ritz, but I don’t think after we got everything in there and then PEOPLE in there, it was too blank.

I think that will be very pretty.


There’s some discussion of DIY uplighting, if your vendor allows it.  

I will mention that as a guest pre-wedding-planning, I never noticed if a place was bare-bones.  I really just didn’t pay attention, I was more focused on the food and the dancing than the decor (and of course the toasts and the bouquet toss and cake cutting and things).  Even in the middle of wedding planning, I’ve yet to go to a bare-bones venue and think it looks bad unless there is a ton of crepe paper involved, and that’s just my highschool dance hangup.

maybe not christmas lights, but is there a way to string lights with bigger bulbs across the ceiling?
