My reception isn’t outdoors but that sounds similar to what we’re doing to our head table, gift table, and cake table (so I hope it doesn’t look trashy – lol!).  We’re draping swags of white tulle on these tables with red and gold bows (our colors) at the top points of these swags.  We’re also putting white x-mas lights behind the table skirts so you can see the light through the skirt but it hides the cords and such.

I think what you’re picturing sounds great!  Maybe try finding some pictures of something similar online and showing your Fiance.  Maybe he just isn’t really pictureing the same thing you’re envisioning.

Don’t really knwo what your space looks like, but I think something like this with tule and lights would be beautiful:

More searching – here is a fun picture with paper lanterns!  I think something like this makes the feel a bit more casual but if that’s what you’re going for, I think they’re a great way to decorate!

EDIT – sorry the picture is so gigantic! Embarassed

I had white lights and lanterns and my wedding was anything but trashy 😉

My reception is outdoors in a pavillion and they typically decorate with tulle and lighting so I think it will look great! 

Sometimes men just don’t get it, tell him it will be great 🙂
