Decor ideas and inspiration!

Hi all!

Thought this would be a good place to seek inspiration - I need to decorate my lovely community's little village hall for our wedding next summer. I'm thinking of a very natural palette with lots of greens and whites, a few shots of deep blue here and there... But I really want to make the hall look special and weddingy, rather than...just a village hall! Do any of you have any cheap and cheerful ideas?

We already will be doing:

Bunting in our colours
Fairy lights on the beams in the ceiling
Ivy garlands strung around the place
antique glass bottles artfully flung around (Gift from MIL to be)

Kind of stuck to be honest! The thing about a village hall (and I guess any venue) is that you can't put nails/pins/hooks into the wall so I can't hang things easily unless from the beams. Really want the place to have the 'wow' factor when guests walk in..but on a lemonade budget!

Also we have some really ugly school type chairs to work with. Covers don't fit over them so not sure how to pretty them up...or whether it's even worth bothering?

I would very much welcome any ideas/inspiration/advice from those who have gone before!
