    I don’t think the actual location of the venue is as important as the look of a venue as a whole. What does the venue itself look like?

    I know someone who got married downtown Toronto and had a very rustic look, but it was in an old warehouse (think exposed brick etc). Do you have photos of your venue? I don’t the the location matters as much as the look of the place.

    Your guests are going to see what’s in front of them. That will be your tables and your decor. The walls, ceiling and floor will get one quick look as they enter the space and then be forgotten.

    I think you should go for flowers and lots of greenery but not over the top rustic. Think elements of nature and keep it minimal for a modem and elegant look. Mason jars, chalk boards and logs, branches or twigs may be over doing it. Your venue looks elegant and modern so I’m thinking a happy middle ground would be best. But it is your day so you need to love whatever you do!

    I’m normally inclined to say just do whatever you want, but I agree that it may look a little odd to do mason jars/burlap/baby’s breath etc in a space like this. Is this your actual venue? I would maybe ask to kill the purple up lighting or have it be colorless. Go for neutrals, not stark white, on the linens. Lots of greenery as PP suggested.  If you can find it, birch tree decor accents might be really nice they’re black and white- it’s outdoorsy, but complements the space more. Or maybe try a tree branch centerpiece…

    vanillacustard :  If you fiance does not agree with your Chinese wedding decor idea, I think a very modern and minimalist style would be perfect for your venue:

    vanillacustard :  I have to agree that rustic does not work in that venue.  I prefer the decorations to match the venue.  I think Chinese decor would look really pretty.
