this venue… decor wise.
It’s very “New Orleans” style. Besides flowers what else would you do or think would look good?? Help PLEASE!!!
The ceremony is in the outdoor courtyard during the day. There is a large black iron gazebo that we will stand in front of that I think i want to cover in flowers (as much as my budget would allow).
Here are some pics of some inspiration flowers and the venue. The white linens w/ black ones underneath come with the venue as do the white chair covers.
the reception room (for more pics please go here) The ceiling is black with tiny fiber optic lights to simulate stars… very romantic looking in person! The brick structure in the middle is the dj booth.
inspiration flowers (possibly centerpiece for the main table with a few smaller ones similiar to this for bride and grooms family tables)
bridesmaid dresses and inspiration bouquet
color pallete: meadow (the color of the bm dresses although it looks diff than the dresses above… ) the pinks cream/light peach and ivory are all for flower colors. There’s alot of black in the venue so I probably should have included that in the color scheme as well…
any ideas would be GREATLY appreciated!

pretty! this is in mandeville, right?
i would definitely use lots of candles…that centerpiece is so pretty! i don’t love the black tablecloths though..could you rent another color to go under the white? a soft pink or yellow would be gorgeous.

i’m confused. The ceiling is black with stars? How cool!
I like your colors. I agree with Kitzy about the tableclothes. You can probably get some inexpensive on the classifieds here.
I love your centerpeice idea.
