My fiancé and I are getting married February next year and the ceremony will be held inside and it will be dark outside as the sun sets very early that time of year. I am concerned of the large window that will be directly behind us in the ceremony. Because it will be dark, I am worried there will be glares and reflection with the photos. Any suggestions?

Good point! I didn't think about how the flowers could prevent glare! I agree. I would really hare to cover the windows up. I like the idea of working with the windows and not against them!

No problem. Do you have a florist who works with rental companies...If so, see if they can throw that in with your quote. That way you don't have to do the heavy work, just pick your color!
You can rent pipe and drape from a rental company or the venue quite affordably. They come in a variety of heights and with different drapery. You could do several tall sections that come within a foot of the top of the windows with heavy but sheer paneling, so you get the glow without the glare, then put florals at the top or edges to dress it up. Good luck picking a solution! Lots of good ones have been presented. ^_^
Machine made cotton late, cheap, is very good for after dark glare. Just make sure not to get a flammable synthetic ( poly and others are made from petroleum, not legal in most venues to cover large areas) dense cotton with holes as lace has, is okay. Open weave leno , looks like big lace, is common my sold in fire retardant kinds for home decorating. Just avoid cheap costume grade indiscount stores like Walmart. If your venue has no curtain hardware up, you can use command brand stick on hooks, each rated to hold 25 plus pounds, that can be put on a painted wall or on the woodwork , without making any holes or pulling off a y pInt. Or you may use a metal S hook, like that used for hanging things over a door, or hanging a bicycle against a wall1-3 along the top of the woodwork framing the top of the window, and a dowel with a roll of fabric or 56-72" lace you simply unroll, leaving only the ends of the dowel the fabric is attached to , to fit in the command hooks or S hooks. Very easy. Relatively cheap for a large area of windows. If the venue has roll down plastic shades, you can buy the same size cheap shade to fit the hardware. Take off the plastic, and staple on a thin sturdy fabric. And make a pull down shade. Nylon sheers, see through in colors or in lazy patterns, is safe for fire laws. It melts in high temps. It does not burst into flames that spread , as many synthetics do. And lots of things like 72-120 inch wide tulle, or gauze, comes in both nylon, or polyester. Poly unsafe. Nylon safe. Discount places like Fashion Fabrics Club online sell it one pensively by the bolt, far less expensive even with shipping than sewing it bridal shops. Tulle lets in light with just enough netting to block glare, and is super light to hang and handle. https://www.fashionfabricsclub.com/c2109_fabric-by-the-bolt-wholesale-fabric-tulle-illusion-by-the-bolt?refinementIds=4096777
