Second guessing ceremony decor...

We're two weeks away! Can you believe it?!


I'm having some second thoughts about what we had talked about for our ceremony and wanted to know what you thought: Put on the "swag" as planned or keep it bare and simple? So here's our venue:


Palm Event Center


And here's what we discussed with my florist: Organza swag in pink with a cluster of flowers on each swag and streamers make bright colors of pink (altar). Six bows to match the cluster that are on the arbor for the aisle (3 on each side of the aisle) petals on each side of aisle.


I really like the breezy look of something like the following, but don't want to take away from the scenery. But as you can see, we are surrounded in the vines.

I love the fabric as well.  The only question is how windy things are in the area.  If it will be fine at that time of day, definitely go for it!

It's breezy, but not bad. I think it would look nice swaying a little bit.

Then do it.  I think it will be gorgeous!  (It becomes so easy to second guess ourselves. . . )I think something colorful, sheer, yet simple will add to, not detract for the gorgeous surroundings.

i think either way...myself...having the same venue as you...I picked that location because you can get away without doing a lot.  Things kept simple is beautiful, have you seen the altar recently, I know they planted a Jasmine vine to crawl up it, when I went for the food tasting 2 months ago it wasn't over the top yet.  By leaving it simple you will also save money, have less to set up and take down, not to mention transporting EVERYTHING!

I actually added the swag at the last minute.  I had an arbor similar to yours and it had 4 clusters of flowers on it.  I loved how it came out.  I think what you describe sounds great.  If you are worried about it being too much, why not compromise and maybe take away the streamers and the ribbons?


Here is what my ceremony site looked like:
