      Biance,
      How are you going to figure out how much fabric to buy?
      What are you bringing with you(linens, chair ties, tulle/organza etc.)?
      What are your colors?

      Where are you located in VA?
      I am in Richmond. Sorry for so many questions.....If we have similar ideas maybe we can share some costs?

        I plan on buying chair sashes, table runners, napkins(if I can find matching ones) and maybe fabric to decorate the gazebo. I live in Northern VA, near the Dulles Airport. My colors are fuschia, orange and maybe some green. Read below if you are interested in my crazy calculations.


        Here are my crazy calculations for how much tulle to get... If you look at the photos on the front page, a person next to the pole in the gazebo is about half as tall as the poll. Lets say the person is 5 feet tall, so the poll is about 10 feet tall. Now if you look at the beam between the polls, it looks about the same size as the poll or a little shorter, so lets just say its 10 feet long. So in the basic formula, a^2+b^2=c^2 or 100+100=200 and then we take the square root of 200 and get ~14, SOOOO in conclusion I would say you need 10+10+14 (~24) feet so cover each corner to corner diagonally, so I am looking at about 50 feet (17 yards) to make the X like figure. Whew!!!

        I would def buy more just in case...

          Bianca!!
          Wow, I might have figured that out eventually, but thanks for posting, it will save tons of time!!

          I think there are a couple other girls doing those colors(you girls should chat and see if Dreams can store the decor and use it for multiple weddings. Could save lots of money and travel stress?/:)

          BTW - I LOVE this forum!!

            We are buying 1 bolt each of fuschia & orange tulle (56' by 40yds). I'm sure we can leave it there for you to use, as your wedding is only a few weeks later.

              Wow, who knew you had to be good at math in order to successfully decorate a gazebo? Kudos Bianca!

              I would like to use the gazebo for my wedding but I haven't even though about how to decorate it. At least I have picked my colors! Green and fuscia and maybe a bit of orange. I am going for bright and tropical colors.

                **Fuscha and Orange color scheme**

                Look at this great pic I found. I LOVE this arch and would like to do this for my ceremony(in blue and white), but it is an extra cost, so I might just stick to the gazebo. NOt so sure about the squatting hawaiin statue thing...haha.

                  Wow, Aaronsgirl! That is gorgeous!

                  Did Jacy tell you how much of an extra cost would it be to do that over the gazebo?

                    Jesdinan -
                    No I have not inquired about any of the decor questions yet. I asked if I could have a beach ceremony with an arch like that and then have the reception under the gazebo. She said I could, but the arch would cost extra(no price mentioned, have heard girls paying anywhere from $200-$400). I think if you get the ultimate package and bring your own fabric it wouldn't cost anything there, but because I asked to use the gazebo also there is an extra cost(the package includes beach OR gazebo).
                    Still deciding whether to have beach or gazebo. I like that the gazebo would be kind of private without the "private party" cost.

                      I love that arch, aaronsgirl!! How gorgeous!

                      Are you having a seated reception in the gazebo or just cocktail hour / apps? I think that I would like to have a cocktail hour with champagne and appetizers in the gazebo immediately after the ceremony (which we are doing in the gazebo) and do toasts and the cake and everything there.

                      Is anyone doing this or have talked to Jacy about this??
