Need help determining how to use his lily garland for the gazebo where my ceremony will be. Here is what the lily garland looks like:
And here is what the gazebo looks like:
The 2 ideas I have are either a full curtain of the lily garland between the back 2 pillars of the gazebo. However don’t know if that would be too much white on white with my wedding dress. The bride and groom will be standing inside the gazebo at the top of the stairs facing out to the guests or each other. The officiant will be standing on the sidewalk at the bottom of the stairs with their back to the guest.
The other idea is to create a frame of sorts using the front 2 pillars around the stairs and the top above the stairs. Sort of like:

Oh and I’d like to incorporate this into the backdrop for the head table if at all possible.
I’ve found the garland. It comes in 6′ lenghts with 14 lilies on a strand. It is a bit pricey but well worth it given how gorgeous it is; just have to figure out right way to utilize it.

I like the idea of the garland behind you. I feel like it would block the view of your photographer and some guests being used as a frame in front.

I agree with PP. I like the framing look but worry that if you’re in the gazebo it would block guests’ view. I think it would make a nice backdrop if you could hang it inside the gazebo behind where you stand (and then you’d be able to easily move it to the head table for a backdrop there). I don’t think it will be too much white on white because the garland is a different texture and has some green in it, too. It is so beautiful!
