I really have no idea what to add..
I thought orginially of adding babys breath on the end of each pew and garland on the arches but now i’m second guessing it because of our budget issues.
I would say that my budget for chapel decor is $100. It’s pretty sweet on it’s own so I personally don’t feel like it’s needs too much.
I would love your inexpensive suggestions!

I would accentuate the wooden “columns” as you enter the chapel. With only that small touch it will really highlight that architectural feature and will also keep costs low. For $50 per “column” you could use some ivy, baby’s breath and even a few “budget” flowers in your colors. Other than that I don’t think the space needs much.

It’s so wonderful already, I’d have a hard time seeing anything to fix! I would brighten it up a little with some babys breath (which isn’t too expensive, really) and some ribbon around the entrance columns and on either side of the alter (the rails over those burgundy curtains). It would frame everything really nicely. Depending on your dress and colours, I would go with one color of satin ribbon (something light) and some lace, or burlap if that’s your bag. You can wind them around the poles and the rails and then tuck the baby’s breath in here and there.
Any extra ribbon could be use to add little bows to the end of a few of the pews to line the aisle!

@bretonvirgniia: I don’t remember your colors or theme (if any), but I would place a garland along the top of that wooden structure. I’m not a church goer so I don’t know the proper name.
The garland should follow the horizontal beam on the left, rise up to the middle horizontal section, then go down to the horizontal beam on the right.
I think it would focus attention on the front of the chapel and look great in your pics.

ok so i spoke with my florist and i’m thinking the following would work nicely:
a babys breath garland between the middle arch.
a more full garland around middle the arch with lots of green…
voile draping in the middle arch with flower accent…
thoughts? maybe i should pop a poll in.
