@Mrs.Sunflower: Honestly I LOVE the paper lanterns, I cant think of anything else that would give off more light. You could do real lanterns or Jars hanging with candles in them but it wouldn’t give off as much light.

Is that the photos from your venue?

I think the roof looks great with those fairy lights and lanterns! What time is your reception? If at night, have you seen it at night? 

I think with all those fairy lights it would look magical, especially if you’re putting drapes on the walls.

@Mrs.Sunflower: I love your theme! I have a similar theme going on so I put together a bunch of inspiration for ya!

As for the lighting in the center, I would definitely get rid of the paper lanterns. Theyre lovely but not at all victorian vintage, ya know? My suggestions would be if you could find an amazing chandelier, something like this one…

You might be able to rent one or maybe even go with a smaller one from save-on-crafts.com. They have some really affordable cute ones! You could even buy like 3 of the smaller ones from save on crafts and hang them in the middle in varying heights.

Or you could maybe do something like hanging lanterns, like this…

Or I also found these really cute doily lanterns that would be super simple and easy to make! And you could cluster them like the paper lanterns in your venues photo…

Oh and I don’t know if you will like this but I found this super cute inspiration pic where they had ostrich feathers hanging from the ceiling! You could add some of the feathers to whatever else you decide to hang up there to give it a little pizzaz πŸ™‚

Ok so for centerpieces I found some cute inspiration pics as well! If you want to light up the space make sure you use lots of candles for that romantic glow πŸ™‚

You could add some candelabras/candlesticks to the centerpieces to give them some height and add to the regal/victorian feel.

Also, I think it would be super cute to add some vintage looking lace fans to the centerpieces πŸ™‚ Just prop them up against the candle holders, etc. Here is a pic to show you an example of what I’m talking about but just ignore the gothic decor πŸ™‚

See the fan in the upper left corner pic? lol

Ok well hopefully someone hasn’t already mentioned a bunch of the same things as me cause it took me a while to get this all put together. Sorry if there is some repeat of pp’s ideas!

Just wanted to show you the chandeliers from save on crafts! Theyre these ones and here is the link!

They’re 19.99 and you could even paint them another color if you don’t like the white. Anyways it would be cute if you got 3 of these and then hung them at various heights in a cluster πŸ™‚

I think natbug21 has it in the bag!  The only thing I’d add is garlands of flowers everywhere ifyou’re going for the garden feel.  You could attach them to the walls, tables, ceilings and so on.  I think real flowers are gorgeous but silk ones will do just as well (if not better, because they’ll last)

@Mrs.Sunflower: Most decorating places have wall drapes for hire. Usually on a long rod that they stick up to the roof. I think it would look great on the brick walls in white, it would make the room look and feel so big and airy with those windows aswell πŸ™‚
