@als101213:  Does your venue have a website with a photo of the hall…or would you happen to have one? Its hard (for me) to tell what can be done without seeing it. Or even a photo of a similar venue?

@als101213:  Hmmm I know you can still use rustic decor and maybe get rid of those chair covers. It would still look really pretty, but yeah its not going to be a barn no matter what you do. I think other bees will probably have more help and advice for you than I have. Lol I suck at decorating most of the time.

@als101213:  You hang tulle from the ceiling with white twinkle lights, it would create a warm and romantic vibe to your venue. 🙂

@als101213:  Your venue:

 

Do you already have decor picked out?  Or an inspiration board, pinterest?

If you can keep the Christmas lights but place some burlap with them rather than having all white draping, that could help, if not, I think I’d add some bunting-burlap or perhaps something more “country” if that is the look you’d like.  If the the chairs are black -yes you can leave them without seat covers.  What about adding burlap overlays?  Do you like the lantern idea?Handmade Ceramic Tags sweet and easyUse baskets and wicker, perhaps ribbons in your colors, and simple flowers.  Bring in rustic fabrics, Use wooden table numbers, or flower or herbs packets for Table “numbers”, tuck lavender sprigs in the napkins. Hang chinese paper lanterns, large tissue pomanders or baby’s breath “balls” from the chandeliers?  Make chalkboard nametags/placeholders.must do thislots of white flowers on glass vasesmilk and cookie table.Rustic Wedding Centerpiece wider runners for round tablesBurlap Wedding Tables

Use decor that will take people’s eyes away from the floor

i would use the white linens with the burlap overlay for starters.

If you dim the lights it won’t be as noticeable either and use lots of candlelight

I’d suggest bringing nature into the room as much as you can. Manzanita, lots of flowers,  burlap, twine, old furniture. You can still rustic up your venue. But no it’s not going to be a barn.
