I've posted before about having to down grade our wedding, So when we started rethinking everything we decided on doing the wedding completely around things that was important to us when we first started dating, So we picked our venue at the state park down the road from us. Its on the lake we live on. So we will be getting married by the lake, and the reception will be right there. We are having Olive Garden cater the food. ( our second date). I've googled ideas on how to decorate the place and I kinda like the pic I'm about to post , It is the same place we are having our reception at. My colors will be different along with the center pieces. I will be adding chair covers. black with white sashes. also instead of a bridal table or sweetheart table, we will have our table by the fire place with our 5 children with us. But I'm worried it will be to plain. So I'm seeking the advice of you guys to see what you would think. i'm also posting my vases for the centerpieces. i bought 65

    I think it looks great! I really like the first picture. Remember, if it's too complicated then it would look out of place with your venue. I like the idea of your version of a sweetheart table Smiley smile

    Thanks, That was FH idea, We wanted something easy to set up, Since we will be doing the set up the morning of the wedding. FH saids we wont have anything to worry about set up since we will have lots of help. but I want people to walk i and say wow. I havent showed anyone but FH and our kids on the set up ideas so everyone will be shocked walking in, but was worried it was to plain Jane. I feel better now. Thank you

    I think it looks really pretty! I don't think it's plain at all.

    It looks simple but elegant. I think it would overpower your venue to do too much.

    I like the look of it as well. Looks very elegant yet simple. The only thing I would add is maybe more candles on the tables making it feel warmer and more intimate.

    Too plain? I don't know what I was expecting to see, but the pic you posted is not it, lol. It's lovely. I like your ideas; they're sweet, sentimental, and have substance.

    Thank you so much everyone for all the kind words, And yes I'm taking the advice and adding more candles. And I'll be adding a bit more personal touches. but when we went and looked at the place I was like oh no this can't work ( posting pix for you to understand why) . went home and googled wedding that had been there and when i seen this i was like Oh okay this can work.... And I bought so many vases since they are small so only one or two buds can go in them, So I wanted to line them down the tables... The point to going cheaper on the wedding is so we can go on a wonderful honeymoon. If this wasnt our first and only wedding, I would have done the court house and then ran off to Hawaii. But Fh wouldnt agree...

    The proper lighting makes such a difference. It's amazing what the right decor will do to a space.
