I was wondering how many flower decorations are needed for a small Catholic church. Just want to have an idea of what type of ceremony flowers and how many are a must such as alter flowers. I want to keep the decor simple. Thanks for sharing any thoughts.

It help if you have a picture but to me, a couple of larger alter decorations on either side of your bridal party and then maybe something small on the ends of the pews.

Hi i’m not having a Catholic wedding (i’m protestant and getting married in church). I also wanted to keep my decor simple so have opted for 2 small floral displays with candles in the foyer, white bows on the pews and a single large display at the alter. I dont think you need to do too much, i’m also having some nice scented candles.

Is there a wedding coordinator associated with the church you are getting married at? They should be able to tell what is normally done for weddings at that church and can guide you to what would work with your vision. They can also tell you other important things such as what is restricted in the decorations such as candles, glitter, rose petals, etc.

I agree with @ImHungry247: That is a great idea to check with the church. If there is another wedding on your wedding day, and they are using the same colors you may be able to split the cost–or at least you maybe able to take some of your flowers to your reception to use on the cake table.

we actually didn’t have any type of ceremony flowers/decor. we just felt like it wasn’t really necessary and i don’t think anyone noticed or cared.
if we’d had flowers, we probably just would have done a couple small arrangements at the altar and maybe tulle and lights along the pews.
my church was kinda strict about decorations, so before you decide on anything, make sure your church is ok with whatever you have in mind.
