I may need to consult a lighting expert on this but just curious if anyone here knows…
I am looking at a December / holiday wedding. I live in a small city so venues are very limited, we probably have less than 10 total and about 6 that could accommodate us.
I found a country club that I love, save for the fact that the walls are all bright, glaring dark pink. I, mean, piiiiiiink. Which would be gorgeous for a summer wedding but clash a lot with wintertime pale blues.
So, question is – is it possible to ‘cover up’ pink walls with lighting? Or would I have to look into draping the whole place? Who even does draping, do you need a specialty company? Thanks for any thoughts!

I am not sure about lighting but you could certainly cover the walls with "pipe and drape". A group I work with has done this several times to cover up walls in various campus locations. It can get rather pricey though. Google "pipe and drape" plus your town to see what is available.
Is there a coordinator for the location you are considering? Is so talk with them about what other brides have done. I am sure you are not the only person to not enjoy the pink

Hahahaha wow, pink. Yikes! If it was me, I’d probably try to work with the pink somehow…. – but I’m cheap like that.
I agree though, pale blues and such don’t really do well with pepto-pink! If, however, you did a pink/brown, pink/champagne, pink/gold, or pink/silver theme it would look like you planned it that way all along! I did a google search for "Pink Winter Wedding" and found a bunch of stylish looking themes.
Check this one out: pink and silver. They even found a pink poinsetta. http://www.brendasweddingblog.com/storage/thumbnails/2663872-2260308-thumbnail.jpg
Here is some awesome pink/chocolate action…
And here’s a board post about a pink winter wedding.
I hope that helps a little!

I was watching "Whose Wedding is It Anyways?" when a situation like this came up. THe coordinator dimmed the lights in the venue and had lighting the wedding colors pointing up from the floor. It gave the room a very nice ambiance.
