I think lanterns or other paper decorations would be beautiful. If you think full-on lanterns are too much, maybe cutouts can add something without taking up too much visual space

I think it’s fine with just string lights!  I mean there’s going to be at least 2 people blocking most of the view there anyway.  I think it would be pretty enough with no decoration at all, personally.

This reminds me of your setting! It looks so romantic looking with the lights!

Here are a few other ideas you might get inspiration from

This is gorgeous……I love the idea of hanging an outdoor chandilier

The pergola is so gorgeous on its own that I can’t see why anything more than string lights (maybe even slightly hanging ones to fill up space if it does bother you) would be necessary.

Or if the lanterns aren’t your thing, maybe ribbons?

Ohh I’ll watch this thread, I have a similar venue (pavilion overlooking a golf course). Here are some ideas I’ve pinned to my Pinterest (ignore that some aren’t outdoors, they’re just ideas I haven’t fleshed out myself yet):


Tulle draping (This is from a fellow Bee from a recent recap thread – hope it’s okay I’m posting it!)
Flowers on fishing line (thread through with a needle)

Same concept, just another picture of it

Tulle draping pulled back like curtains?

Better picture of curtains that can class up an outdoor space but still let you get a view of the background.

I like it as-is or with just string lights.

I would line the path with white roses (not scattered but outlining the path)  and then use some simple chandeliers.

@Crazyhair:  Are you having an evening ceremony? Twinkle light will make for great pics after dark, but for a daytime ceremony they will have little or no effect.
