So my master plan for the decor is to use white and ivory for the ceremony, then switch to dark purple, gold, and ivory for the reception. I have tons of ideas for the reception, but when it comes to decor for the church, I’m at a loss because the church is already so beautiful that I don’t need too many decorations. So my question is…what can I do to bring in the white and ivory to the church?

Since you don’t want to overwhelm the space, you could use candles to outline the aisle. Are candles allowed?
You could use white candles and the light will have a really romantic ambiance.

I noticed your pews have a little flat space on the end of each one. I think that’s the perfect place to set a little floral arrangement, maybe every third pew. Then maybe two big arrangements flanking the alter to match the ones on your pews. There’s not much you really need to do in a church like that – the grandeur is in the architecture. 🙂

I love AnnieAAA’s idea with the candles down the aisle, and if your church wont let you use real candles you could always switch them out for the battery powered candles. I would also use an aisle runner. you could monogram with you and your FI’s names and wedding date, maybe in the purple you want for the reception. you could string some tulle down the aisle, up until you get to the first few pews so the when the wedding party comes in the can get in the pew… this would also keep everyone from walking on your aisle runner. Kinda like this:
At the spot where you have the tulle coming up you could place a cone of flowers for people to throw when y’all walk back down the aisle, you could put framed pictures of y’all together throughout your relationship or one each respective side have pictures of the two of you growing up like start with baby photo then go to grade school photo and then end with a e-photo, you could do a flower arrangement. Or you could just hang kissing balls off the sides of the pews. Good luck your venue looks very pretty!!!!

I like pomanders, so every 3-5 pews hang a pomander. By the way, beautiful church!

I used pomanders in my space! I also made lighted branches but i think either pomanders or candles- subtle but personal would be gorgeous!
