Will they have those floral arrangements in front of the alter for your wedding? Or something similar?

If so, maybe just something on the ends of the pews. Pomanders, a sprig of a flowering shrub with a ribbon- do you have someone whose garden you can raid?

My church is more modern looking as well compared to some gorgeous churches I have seen on here. With that said, I am not going out of my way on decorating the church. I rather spend my money elsewhere! I reached out to a girl I went to high school with that got married at my church and she said she didn’t spend a penny (even though based on her reception venue, I’m sure she could have). She said she got her bouquets and boutineers from the local florist who also does the weekly church flowers. The florist asked the church if it was okay to do that week’s arrangment in her colors. They were two medium sized arrangements against the wall on two pillars. See if this is an option for you! I would have never thought of it!

ask a bridesmaid or family friend to make some pew bows and maybe get or borrow two large vases to put some lime green colored florals in for up front — I bought two large plants at the local farmer’s market to use.  It is a very nice church all on its own, just think of what you would like the backdrop to look like in your formal photos after your ceremony.

My only advice is to reuse stuff from your ceremony at your reception – more for your money. 🙂 Just a few things, like those mentioned by PPs, would definitely work in that setting.
