My fiance and I had our hearts set on getting married in this beautiful redwood grove. We live in the Bay Area, and the weather is often mild this time of year, so we decided to chance it on rain.
Well, sadly, the current forecast says there is a 60% chance of rain on our wedding day. 🙁 I’m realizing that we need to start seriously thinking about how we’ll decorate the indoor space that we have as our back-up plan. I am terrible at coming up with those kinds of ideas, and I’m now feeling quite a bit of pressure as the wedding is just one week away.
Do any of you talented bees have suggestions about how we can make this space look better? Our whole wedding has a very woodsy, foresty theme – how can I bring that feeling indoors (and on such short notice)?? Any and all suggestions/ideas welcome. I’m so sad about the possibility of not getting married in the place that I’ve been dreaming about and am trying to get excited about our Plan B, but I’m having a hard time seeing it. Thanks so much.
And if it’s not raining (still keeping fingers crossed), THIS is where we’ll be getting married – isn’t it lovely??

Oh! You get married a day after me. I’m facing the same problem. We’re getting married in the humid unpredictable part of the city haha. As for dressing up the place, I hope you dont think its a dumb idea but it works really well. Fairy light curtains. And maybe hang a few lanterns around?
Btw, I hope it doesnt rain because omg the alternative is beautiful! Good luck 🙂

Use white Christmas lights, and maybe some wooden boxes with ferns centerpieces-like the 2nd photo, add in some white flowers-in hidden jars?Also–here is a similar post that may be helpful! http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/woodland-wedding-decor-help

Thanks both for your thoughts! I keep coming across ideas that would work well for the reception, but we’re only using this space for the ceremony. If anyone has ideas about how to add a woodsy feel to an indoor ceremony space — like things to do to the aisle or some sort of easy altar alternative, I would love love love to hear them. (Especially because the forecast for rain is now at 70% for that day. Boo.) Thanks so much!

Since its Xmas decoration season, I think white lights will be the easiest to find and set up without a huge expense and line the edges of the season.
Also, see if you can find a long roll of burlap and use that as a aisle runner
And then on the ends of the aisles get some bunched greenery to hang

@ThreeMeers: I totally just pinned that pics – thanks! Where do you think the white lights should go? And you mean just normal white xmas tree lights, right? (Sorry, those may be kind of obvious questions, but I really am challenged in the decor department!)

Mrs Eggs Benedict had a woodsy indoor ceremony:
Weekend in the Woods: Our Indoor Forest
You could arrange to rent trees like she did for the backdrop. Add some candles and you have a magical woodsy atmosphere.
You could also line the aisle with potted ferns which you could porobably rent from the same place

I also love the idea of adding lighting on the side 🙂
