@nasus23:  Your first step, before you make any decorating plans, should be to check with the priest/minister/pastor, etc., to find out what is and is not allowed as far as making changes to the decor of the altar and sanctuary. Different churches have different rules and limits about what is allowable, but it generally makes pastors very unhappy when brides regard the space more as a backdrop for the wedding than as a sacred place in its own right. Maybe it’ll be fine and your pastor will be cool with whatever you want to do – but it’s best to ask before you assume. Good luck!

If the minister has no problem with you hiding the background. I would place piping across the back and you could still incorporate the colums on each side if you like….

This might seem like a dumb question, but is the red curtain used year-round? At the church where I grew up, the color of the altar draping was changed throughout the year in accordance with the liturgical calendar. Red wasn’t used year-round.

If this church does that too, you might be in luck… I think the draping was either white or green in May.

Embarassed Oops! The response right before mine was written less than 24 hours ago. And I actually looked at the date and ignored the year… WOW. Bad.
