    We have the same problem!  I don’t like seeing churches where it looks like the back half was ignored… so we are putting decorations on every 3 pews, as there is a 115 foot aisle and it will be expensive to decorate every one!

    I voted for half of the church, but we did every other pew for half of the church.  Our church had a very long aisle.  We used tissue pomanders that I actually purchased from someone here at the hive 🙂

    I really think it depends on your church.  Our church was so beautiful, we didn’t want to try and decorate it, it would have seemed like a waste of money.  Also, since we got married right after Christmas, it was still decorated from that.  You can see if there is a bride having a wedding near yours and share decorations.

    Here’s a pic of our church on our wedding day.  It’s looking down the aisle, but you can see, it’s a very long aisle.

    @sunnyjean: Well they were supposed to hang off hooks, but our church didn’t have any hooks on the pews (whoops).  With the church coordinator’s permission, one of my bridesmaids used tape under the ribbon to secure them to the wood.

    @evalague: Actually we got married in Toledo, OH.  This is their Bishop’s Seat, it’s technically a Cathedral, lol.  But I just feel pretentious telling people I got married in a Cathedral, when you can see that my guests didn’t even come close to filling HALF the church!

    Yeah, our church (Rockefeller Memorial Chapel at University of Chicago) is similarly a humongous, 1700 seat, long church.  We’re not decorating it at all.
