Is there any enclosure/structure at all from which to hang something? Do you have a photo of the space?

Bunting, hanging lanterns, strings of lights, streamers… you can do a lot with that space!

ETA – Just make sure you have an outlet for lights!

@redheadem: I was just going to suggest that! I think you’d want lots of things that hang, so lights, lanterns, bunting, etc. are perfect! And you can usually find those for pretty cheap or make them very easily. 🙂

@beccagracebrown:  do you have the dimensions of the pavilion?

You will need the width of the pavilion plus about 8-10 feet for each string across the building. Multiply by the number of strings you want (take the length of the pavilion and divide it by how far apart you want the strings).

Some brides hang the lights just above the dance floor.
