Outdoor Weddings

Wedding decorator fell through five weeks before wedding, I need an idea!

Long story made short, the lady who we hired to do our reception for us flaked out and we have five weeks to go. We are holding our reception in an outdoor bowery, and it has thick red brick columns. Our colors are red, black, and off-white, (overdone, yes, I know) and what we have decided to do for decorations so far are strings of lights and chinese lanterns across the ceiling, white table clothes with alternating red and black overlays, and flower arrangements for the table. If anyone has any ideas to share on other decorations, I would appreciate it!

  • What're doing for centerpieces or are you wanting ideas for that as well? We did alternating colored linens like you plan to, as well as alternating matching linen napkins and organza chair sashes. I don't think you need to do a whole lot more in terms of decorating though because with the paper lanterns and the strings of lights, you seem to have a decent amount already. Do you have a photo of your venue?
