I'm stuck...need your opinons

Here's a pic of the winery cellar where our ceremony and reception will be held. There will be 3 tables of 10 people each with chocolate brown pintuck linen. I need ideas for the florist...I want tall candelabra arrangements on each table but I don't know what to do for the ceremony and any other flowers.


For the ceremony we will be standing in front of the mirror in the picture with much nicer chairs aranged to create an "asle" - not how they are in the pic.


Any ideas/opinions would be GREATLY appreciated!

Ooh the venue is so pretty! Very romantic feeling. When I look at the picture, I think white flowers and lights. You could rent an archway or a canopy archway and decorate it with white roses and carnations, tulle and wrap the lights around. For the aisle you could do something kind of similar but instead of flowers use rose petals in one of your colors. Wrap the petals inside tulle and put some lights along with it. Then tape the tulle on the seems. It would be very pretty and romantic. I'm doing both ideas for my wedding in 2 weeks.


Also, maybe you could do some sort of floral arrangements with white ostrich feathers and crystals. I LOVE those 2 together! Candles would also be very pretty!


Hope that helps you out :) Congrats by the way!

Thanks! I am planning on surrounding that ledge that runs all the way around the room with candles of different heights. My colors are brown and green with, I think, a little orange thrown in. I also thought of hanging pomanders from the lights above. Other than that, I'm really stuck for ideas.

Is it a fall wedding? You could use pumpkins and like autumn leaves. That'd be really pretty too.

I see somthing more dramatic then floral arrangements- I think Candles would be awesome! Or even lanterns.  I have seen even candles down the aisle before- very unique! I wouldn't use tulle for anything- that place is too awesome and it isn't needed IMO :) I would stick to bold simplicity!  Maybe a touch of color if you want to incorporate orange...


- HMM :)

Maybe even some sort of branch/ hanging votives arrangement- you could always add a punch of color to this?  I just went thought the PW ceremont photos- clicked on candles and got a bunch of ideas...

I am obsessed with this wedding, its just so beautiful. When you said candles along the ledge... it made me think of it! Inspiration possibly?

OMG - that is just beautiful! Their linens are the same ones I already picked!! I think you guys are right...candles, candles, candles. Tell me why I am freaking out about this!!!!!!! The wedding is 10.31.08 so I have a few months!


So is everyone leaning toward the branches-type centerpiece? I originally said tall candlelabra-type with flowers but how pretty would those branches be with votives hanging off them? Here's an inspiration board I made for colors for myself - what do you think girls?? (and thanks again :) )

I think that 'scheme' would be beutiful at your location!  You could still have candleabras for you table, maybe do the branches for ceremony, and as other decor for certain places- gb/pc tables, lobby, etc...


Champ~ I love the bio as well- she even has that dress that someone on PW wants- I don't remember who it is though???

OMG Champ!  I thought about the same wedding when I saw the space!  Great minds think alike. ;)


jessie~I totally think you should go with candles, candles, candles.  I think the branch centerpieces, etc would go great.  It is a beautiful intimate location!
