marianagv :  Is that a reflection of the outdoors in the window?Have you talked with your photographer about using that as a backdrop for the ceremony?

Rather than try to cover it with a banner, I might look at placing birch branches potted up to look like trees.

marianagv :  Why would you cover such a beautiful view? I suggest another take on rustic; burlap has been around for so long! Something like this would work nicely in that space; the vase on the ceremony table could hold daisies, baby’s breath, for example. You can bring the “outdoors” with the planters and trellis and hanging vines/greenery.

Holy moly, this is a STUNNING backdrop in itself!  Where is this?  I would keep it very minimalistic.  No balloons unless you pair it with a bright purple velvet couch (kidding! eeeww.)

Seriously, this backdrop commands an understated elegance.  Two tall oversized minimalist branch arrangements or modern flower arrangements if you have a larger budget.

marianagv :  Wait, you are marrying in Portugal? How very lucky! Goodness, for your ceremony table there would not be anything more lovely than a Madeira linen runner.  They are so beautiful!

And for your reception, I would use white tablecloths, and “make” a runner joining individual Portuguese mosaic tiles. Add some vases with flowers, and that would be all you needed. Rustic, Portuguese-style!

In terms of the ceremony table, I’m pretty sure that if the hotel doesn’t have anything to your liking, there must be event rental places where you could find a good variety of alternatives.
