Green and white is always a fresh look for summer weddings! Good luck.

I think it’d be nice to distinguish the headtable with different linen. Personally I’m not sure about the tulle — I think it tends to look cheap sometimes and isn’t necesary, especially if the rest of your decor is simple and clean.  But that’s totally a matter of opinion. If you’re using mason jars and branches, perhaps incorporating some rustic-chic ideas into other decor? That way you can bring that outdoor refreshing attitude into a hotel ballroom.

(On that note, are you sure you want to cover the window with the black curtains? Maybe use them to frame the window but not block out all the natural light? Not sure what the rest of the room looks like, of course.)

For family photos, what I’ve seen most often is just to place a table along a wall near the entrance to the room, where people would see it. Perhaps with some candles to show you’re honoring past family members? Or branches to bring in the notion of the “family tree.”

I have heard of people incorporating their family’s wedding photos into their table numbers.  Maybe you could frame them and have the table numbers on the frames?

Maybe something like this…

Another way to do family photos is to place a reprint of the photo ( this won’t work with a photocopy) in a mason jar filled with ordinary vegetable oil. It gives a nice vintage look. If this doesn’t work with the vision you have for your centerpieces, you could always display them on other surfaces, the gift table, the bar, the cake table , in the bathrooms etc.

I would try something other than tulle for the backdrop. Ribbon backdrops look fresh and more current and are easy to make- just staple the ribbon to a dowel, then hang with strong fishing line.
