Below is a picture of my church where we will have our ceremony. I’m confused as to how to decorate it, if at all. I am on a tight budget so if we did anything floral, it would definitely just be baby’s breath or something similar.
I need some bee’s opinions! I love the old traditional look of it (built in the late 1800’s), but I’m torn between keeping the natural beauty of the church or dressing it up somehow.

It helps if you offer some additional information when you ask a question. Time of year of wedding, colors, any theme?
Do you want an aisle runner? pew decor? or just altar decor?
It is a beautiful church and could be used just the way it is. To be budget friendly, you could do something that can be re-used at the reception. Have you decided on your centerpieces?

date is 4/27/13 in Florida, so although it is technically spring, it will feel like summer outside. Colors are navy and coral. No theme as I can’t pin down one that matches the venues (reception is in another building built in the late 1800’s) and the colors.
We can’t use flower petals or isle runners, so mainly I’m just thinking of decor for the pews or for the floor next to each pew, such as a lighted vase with baby’s breath or something. I’m not sure there is enough room in the aisle for me and the bridal party to walk though, if we decorate that way.
No decision yet on centerpieces either. I feel so lost!!

I didn’t use any flowers in my church decor. I just used tulle and two tall candelabras on the altar. It was very inexpensive!

I’m all about getting a good look without blowing the budget. Are interested in anything DIY?
You can get these done well ahead of time.
Pomanders made of coffee filters or doilies (lots of tutorials online)- hang them with navy ribbon
a simple ribbon swag- top with single flowers set in florist tubes, or use paper flowers- seat the guests from the other side

@julies1949: I love that simple ribbon idea with a single flower. Definitely something I will be looking into!
