Quoting Willow.wind:

Have the guys clear the portch & maybe decorate the steps some how... Live plants like fall colored mums in a pot would catch ones eye & help the portch situation

that sounds lovely ill ask my mil see what she says

And you never offered a better venue. You in fact didn't offer any constructive advice either.
We chose this house for the yard not the house.

NOT exactly this, but something similar to cover up that hose thing.  But it looks like it's like right in the middle of your path from the house to the ceremony so ANYTHING you do is going to be awkward.  

You could staple gun a white sheet or burlap to the stairs to cover them up for pictures because they WILL show.  I know it's not your house so home repairs are not going to happen, but by securely stapeling a sheet to the stairs  you will make sure that your pictures can at least be cropped to look ok.   It's called a "grand entrance' for a reason, everyone will be looking at you and it might be the first time he sees you, it is kinda a big deal.

I love what someone else suggested with the hay bales and pumkins to cover up the sides of the porch area and to line the aisle.  

 This could just be gathering all your potted plants, plus friends' and neighbors' for no cost, aside from the pumpkins which you can use for Halloween too.

Also do youknow anyone who plays the guitar that might be able to play while you walk down the aisle?  


I just planned our DIY ceremony this past Spring, but I spent almost a year on the details and crafts.  I know you're under a time crunch!  :oD  

Also the tree where you will be saying I Do should have some sort of decoration.  I did a big heart with a monogram of our last name, plus some floral.  But you can keep it simple and still have it be important.  I think hay bales would be great if you could get your hands on some and again with the potted plants and pumpkins.  

“He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you.” ~Bob Marley

Actually I looked at the picture a little more closely of the house, it is not that bad. It is nice and clean. The only thing is to cover where the boards are missing along the bottom. Myabe like others suggest put bales of hay, and pumpkins and pretty gourds, fall flowers in pretty pots.

Do you have a sissy bar on the back of the motorcycle? If you do you can put it there. What does the bike look like?
