Nice! Good call about moving it inside 🙂

Those are some pretty columns out front! Maybe you could wrap some sort of garland around them? It looks like there are some wreaths on the doors too – maybe make a wreath with your new last initial on it?

Something like this or this:

Since you’re getting married in October, you could also buy some pretty mums or other flowers for out front! If it goes with your theme/colors, that is 🙂

@Bben2009:   I am not a church going person, so I don’t know the correct terms to use.

During the wedding, will that wooden altar? lectern? pulpit? still be in place? The one with the flower arrangement?

Are you allowed to decorate the columns on the front wall? If so, I would do a simple garland that goes across the top and hangs down on both columns.

This one drapes from a wreath

@Bben2009:  In your pics and from the guests` point of view it will appear to be above you.

Using the columns that are already there will also give you cleaner lines, so you don`t have an arch in front of it.

If the church won`t let you use a nail on either side to drape the garland, you can use Comand Hooks by 3M. They are easily removeable with no damage to the surface.
