Ugly AHR hall

Recommended Posts

Okay, so we are pretty sure we are having an AHR. Also mostly sure it is going to be in the town I grew up in, to accommodate my huge family that doesn't get to go to DW. Problem is, though, that there is only one location really in this place, and I pretty much have to go with it (since this is the part my family gets to do). It is a really out-dated, ugly community centre. I really don't care so much, but I would like to do what I can to make it prettier for super cheap (or almost free). I should also mention that they don't want things hung on the walls, and that we are just doing a cocktail reception probably; maybe a midnight lunch or something. I want nice but laid-back. Any brilliant ideas? I am pretty DIY savvy. I was thinking of making the hanging curtain of flowers I have seen on this site, and paper lanterns, but I think I need more ideas! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I don't have any pictures; it is a basic community centre; very 80's, and not in a good way. I am hoping for beach themed, and in blues and coral for colours. It is going to be pretty casual, more a cocktail party with appetizers and a midnight lunch (probably), but I would still like something to make it look, well, better. I did find out that there are hooks hanging in some places on the walls (lined up horizontally) so it is possible to hang things from that.

Could you hang anything from the ceilings? I was at a wedding a few months ago at a hall that sounds similar and they hung some colored tulle on the ceiling and it really made it seem bright and cheery and forgot about the 80s decor.

It is a very large hall; do you think that would still work? I don't see anything in their forms about not hanging things from the ceilings, so that might help! Plus, it could make it feel smaller and more cozy (we are certainly not going to fill the room). Thanks!

Unfortunately for the location (middle of nowhere tiny town), there is nothing else that suits the number of people and the guests (a couple very elderly family members who want to be inside on a hard floor for walkers and such; they are my grandparents who I am very close with and who will not be seeing me get married, so I really want to give them what they want)... I think I am stuck with the community centre, though the tulle will help I think... I am okay with that location, to appease my family (since I am getting the wedding I want), but I would just like it to be, well, less ugly :)

Paper lanterns are also a great option for adding color, especially if you can hang stuff from the ceilings. Otherwise, bright table cloths/runners and chair sashes.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
