I need ideas for a sophisticated, yet glamourous summer evening wedding. I’m stuck on what colors to use and what type of decor and centerpieces. I’m using more than 50% of my budget on my reception, which is going to be semi-formal. So, I need to have decor that can be DIY and inexpensive, but look nice enough to fit into a more formal, semi-expensive venue ($75 a plate) The walls of the venue are a tan/champagne color and it has huge window looking onto a harbor.

Champagne, Ivory, and black would be SOOO classy… Play up the light colors alot, and use the black as accents. Lots of candles would look beautiful as well, and would be relatively inexpensive if you found good deals on them. (Also consider flameless candles if you have lots of children or people with asthma attending!)

Also, champagne, ivory, and black are very easy to work with
