You can use the plastic table cloths from dollar three to cover them.  They also sell the table cloth plastic in rolls at restaurant supply stores, maybe more bang for the buck that way and you could cut them to size.

I think it would, you could always spend $1 and buy just one and see if you like the look.  Personally, I wouldn’t do anything with them, I really don’t think they detracted at all.  If you want a little more umph, you might hang streamers from two walls like your ceremony, or just one long wall.

I have some ugly pillars at my venue too, and have a lot of paper crafts going on… I’m going to cover my columns with paper doilies from the dollar store. I think it would look super cute with some of your other decor items.

Will your event extend into the evening hours? If so you could wrap the pillars in lights, with or without tulle.

one of my favorite places to go when I am looking for solutions to a decor problem is Lowes or Home Depot. There are many construction items that can be adapted for decorating. You can get long tubes used for concrete, I think they are called sonotubes, split them vertically, paint them ahead of time at home, then just open them up and snap them over the pillars.

What if you found some really nice damask fabric or table runners and hang them on the pillars? (I used photo shop really quick to put a visual together) — With some string and fabric you will be set and it will look really classy… I am sure you can do this for around $100.00 Please do not use plastic table cloths, that will look really cheap… this is your wedding splurge a little ๐Ÿ™‚ ..

Ooooh, or find some discounted wall paper to hang around them.  I really like the twinkle light pillars but if its in the middle of the day, you kinda waste your $$ on something not too functional. I gotta say though, I think your paper decorations are going to be a really nice contrast against the brick pillars.  And the pillars help the inside of the pavilliion and the nature around it be more cohesive.
