Ok first of all, that is obscene! Have you tried negotiating with them at all on the cost to move these items since they never told you that when you booked the room?

Second, how much decor have you already purchased? Is the chandelier concept set in stone?

Why not just change your colors to work with what you’ve got?  The room looks really awesome the way it is.

I think you could still make white and yellow work in this space.

If it were me, I’d either substitute in another color for the black, or just only do a wedding in white and yellow.

@scadadle15:  I agree!

That venue is amazing the way it is.  Without the changes it really woundn’t take much decor to have an absolutely stunning area.

It IS going to be ok. The space looks great as it is, but I know you’ve put a lot into making it work with your colors. Can the lighting be used to cast a yellow hue over the area? Or, can the chair cusions and tables be covered? These may be a stretch but should still be a lot cheaper than the $3,500.

Did they not mention a price to you before you signed a contract to have your reception at their venue??? That seems like something that should  have been all placed on the table when you were talking about what you wanted and what they could do….

It’s going to be OK! Honestly, most of the weddings I’ve been to do not match their decor with the room. My wedding was black and fuschia, and the room was all taupe and this weird green color. Honestly, once you get your decor in there, it changes the whole room. Additionally, once people fill the room, you no longer see a lot of it. I might ask them to remove the wicker chairs, as it definitely doesn’t seem to go with your style, but otherwise I would just rock out with your color scheme!

I’m not trying to hurt your feelings, but as a guest at weddings I rarely, if ever, happen to notice what the colors are. Maybe I’ll remember if I happen to like the bridesmaids dresses…but it’s not something that really sticks out for me. I think this is just one of those things that the bride worries herself sick over when she doesn’t have to!

Things I DO remember:  Memorable first dances, the bride walking down the aisle, GOOD FOOD, Good music, GOOD FOOD, happy people, GOOD FOOD.

Things like centerpieces, flowers, the men’s tuxedos, the color of the walls, the shoes the bride was wearing, etc all get lost after a few days unless there was something about them that REALLY stood out!

Your reception will be fine, even if you can’t incorporate your colors into it.  🙂

I think this might be a blessing in disguise because the space is beautiful as it is! I’m sure you could still make yellow and white work, just cut down on the black or try adjusting to grey instead. Good luck!
