    what does the room look like? if its a large room with a small guest list it might look sparse, but if it fits the amount invited and size of the room i am sure it will look great. what time of day? maybe throw amber gels on the uplighting to give it a candle-like glow?

    What you are descibing could work; however, I would need to see the room to be able to give an honest opinion.

    Your room will look fine.

    Always rememver that when you look at photographs of table settings and room decor , there are no people in those pictures. Once you filll the room with people in their various colored clothing, the decor becomes secondary to the good time.

    Will you have attendants? If so, you could have vases on the head table for the bridal and bridesmaids’ bouquets. That will focus even more attention on the bride and groom at the head table.

    This sounds good to me, it sounds modern, hip.

    Does you venue have seating options?  One thing I decided to do was to create a focal point in my large reception hall where people can sit- a seating area with couches, ect.  Just an idea.  I saw it at a showcase and it looked great.

    I think you will be fine. I like the amber lighting idea too.

    I think once the tables are in there and set up, it will fill the space and you won’t feel like it looks so sparse. I think the candles are a really good idea and would make the area look warm and coazy. 🙂 I have also seen people hang paper lanterns at various heights from the ceiling… I’m not sure how you feel about this, but it looks like you would have places to hang some, if you wanted! (It looked really cute in the weddings I attended!)

    Something that would have a big impact is projecting a beautiful photo of flowers or a colorful modern pattern up onto that screen. I saw a picture of a couple that did that on their church’s projection screen over them for their ceremony and it was amazing! Big impact, no cost (assuming they have a projector that goes with the screen?)
