So we’re working on picking our ceremony spot and were to the point where we only have one option left big enough to hold it. The problem being it has a huge stone stage that I hate, and like 6 GIANT poles that look like flag poles. So I’m looking for help on finding an idea for a backdrop to take the eyes away from it. It’s Leif Erickson park in Duluth,MN. My phone won’t let me upload pics, IF u wanna look at it. I’m just not sure of a decoration or backdrop big enough to take eyes away from that. And to make sure we get the date we want we have to book soon so any help would be greatly appreciated! I’m not going to book this without finding a way i can love it first. Thanks ladies!!

If Snowden posted the right photo, then I have to say WHAT A BEAUTIFUL LOCATION!
I wouldn’t worry about the poles. They can easily be decorated with floral garlands or paper garlands or just any type of decoration on a string that can either be wound around the poles or strung between the poles. You can also place decorations on the legde.
I know it seems like a huge deal (breaker) to you right now, but the more you obsess about it the unhappier you are making yourself. Accept what is with grace and move on. Find the solution that works best for you and concentrate on making happy memories!

I think it’s so lovely and nautical. Can you drape tons of Christmas lights to draw your attention to iit at night?!?

I think it is beautful. I wouldn’t do anything.
If you really want additional decor, the wall behind the stage is wide enough to place planters or flower baskets on top.
You could also do a bunting between the poles.

lol yea that’s the right place!! yea its not horrible but the poles r gigantic and I don’t think would be very easy to decorate. u might be able to get to the middle of them using a ladder. but that’s it. Yea you’re right I just need to buck up. lol Thanks ladies!

If I could put garland on a string around them I would love it MUCH more but because they’re do tall do you think that would be possible?

Why would you want to decorate the poles? You’re doing the ceremony there, right, and not the reception? So just…get married with that beautiful background, and decorate your reception venue…

@Lilangel58209: If you want bunting, it doesn’t have to be hung from the top of the poles. If you want it to be in your pcs, you’d want it much lower anyhow.
