Granted, it looks a little plain without any added decoration, but so does the old beach setup and the Gazebo. I think there's a lot more you can do with the new one to dress it up. I immediately thought of these ideas for you guys (all taken from this site)...
Colored draping. Anything with color, whether it's flower or fabric will pop against the dark wood.
Crystals, crystals and more crystals!
The crystals are to die for, but I love the big tropical leaves with the white flowers at the base too. Those would like nice in the front on each side.
Strands of flowers for a more romatic look....
This makes me want to change my location. It's definitely different than what you were all planning for but there is a lot of potentional!
Thanks for these lovely ideas... especially the crystals. Are these all options or pictures from secrets weddings?
