It’s really beautiful as it is. Are you allowed to tie ribbons or flowers to the trees/bridge/etc? might be an idea.

You know, sometimes more isn’t always better, it’s just more…and I’ll be sitting at a wedding that is stuffed to the gills with things, and flowers and wall hangings and candels and sheperd’s hooks and I start to wonder just what the opening act will be….letting a venue speak for itself, naked as it were, is a statement enough and lend the attention to the couple, where it should be.

@MissFireFlower:  It’s beautiful, I think adding anything to it would just junk it up, the owners of the venue are doing people a favor by keeping them from this mistake…give your parents some other project to freak out over, the venue situation is under control!

@MissFireFlower:  I think it’s gorgeous as is.  I got married on a large ship that has since been converted to a restaurant, docked on the river.  I did NO DECOR!  I figured it had such natural charm and elegance, why mess it up?

It’s also great if you’re looking to keep the budget low!

I think the place is gorgeous as-is.  I’m not planning on extra decor for my outdoor wedding either.  Your venue looking stunning without the extras.

It’s gorgeous!

What time is your wedding? How long are you expecting people to hang around?

I don’t have any concerns about the decor, it’s beautiful. But I do wonder what the plan is following the ceremony in terms of having drinks available, making it easy for people to handle both their personal items (any purses/jackets/cameras/programs/etc) plus their food and drinks. What’s the rain plan?

We are having our wedding in a gorgeous garden. No decor needed what-so-ever. Afterwards we are having a simple reception in a rather posh confernece center. Again, I see no need for decorations. In beautiful locales, none are necessary.

@MissFireFlower:  Okay, you don’t have to answer this if you don’t want to, but walk me through how the ceremony/reception is going to go. (If you posted this previously, I can go look – sorry!)

People will arrive and there will be chiavari chairs (gorgeous) set up in a traditional ceremony seating style. Ceremony will happen, all normal with the aisle and all that jazz. Then what? What’s the “dismissal” to signal for them to get up and mingle? Do they need to go to another area for the band, or is it right there? Will there be dancing? How long is the reception? Where’s the bar/what’s the drink plan?

I just really this people need a place to put down their stuff if you’re planning on them staying more than 45 minutes or so and giving them food & drink. I also wonder what time the reception is/how long it is. If you’re only doing apps (I can never spell hors d’ourves or whatever) I assume it isn’t at a meal time. I don’t know of a way you could tell them to leave stuff in the car…

I may be not understanding though, I’m sure there’s a way this works! That’s why I ask for what the sort of gameplan is.

I did no decor at my garden ceremony.  There was a permanent tent and chairs, but that’s it.  The only thing I even a little wish I’d added was an altar/arch kind of thing to make a more obvious focal point when we weren’t in place, but that’s about it.

I think your plan sounds great!
