Just Engaged and Proposals

Using Tree as Backdrop

Hi, I am getting married in May. This is our venue.  I am not using an arch, because I like how the trees create their own arch in a way.  I have been searching for ideas on how to enhance the trees (like lights, jars with candles, etc).  However, I am concerned that glass may be too heavy for the limbs.  I was just wanting some input from people who have done this or anyone who hasany ideas. Thanks!

Re: Using Tree as Backdrop

  • Fairy lights or festoon lights would be beautiful if it was slightly later (early evening, maybe?), but would be lost in the daytime. What about pretty garlands like this:



    Or colourful paper cranes could be fun:

    Or ribbons, flower garlands, balloons...there are a ton of things you could do in such a beautiful location. Let us know how you get on!

    Hard to tell from the picture but are the trees a bit further behind? Or will you get married more under the trees? 
    I love the garlands above; round paper lanterns would be fun and visible at a bit of a distance.

  • Hi, I really love that garland.  The wedding is at 6:30pm. So it will be a little darker; however, I don't think the sun sets until like 7:30.  They are a little bit further from the tree than I will be since they have the arch.  We will most likely be about a foot in front of trees.   I love that flower garland, I just don't know whether to do the area near us (like pictured) or more of the trees?

    I'd do the area closest to you to draw the eye to the exact ceremony spot.
