So after much debate it has been decided that we will have our ceremony at the church. The church isnt so “wedding like” and the last few times I was there it was for a funeral. So I’m thinking of adding some decorations to give the place a happier wedding vibe.
I was hoping you would share your pew and aisle decorations. I am looking for something like bows or creative things (diy) more than flowers (altough I wouldn’t mind seeing flower ones.)
Also what did you do to section off the first few rows for immediate family?
There is a section in the front of pews and then there are some in the back and some high up overlooking the pews on the bottom.

Maybe this will help. This isn’t my venue but the front part of mine looks similar to this.

I like when pew/aisle decorations are every other. We had pomanders. Ours were real flowers, but you can make them with fake flowers or with tissue paper. We aren’t in a church, but just for a visual, I’ll add a picture. I personally find the bows and tulle a little out of date, but eveyrone has a different vision. I’ve also seen some beautiful decorations that were clusters of dried flowers, lavendar and the like. I’d depend on ushers to keep the front rows clear for family.

We also just used the ushers to keep the right number or front rows clear.
We used chinese lanterns with bows. Ours was obviously outside, but you could use a similar thing inside.

the hard thing I think for us. for me anyway. is getting something round to look cute next to a pew… or to get anything to hang right on a pew.. thast been one of my thoughts… what about putting something on the ground though?

@alishaloo: You can definitely do decor on the floor. Just be careful to choose something that is heavy enough at the base that it won’t tip over if brushed by your dress, or non-breakable and light enough that it won’t matter.
do either two or four very tall glass vases with orchids and branches- two at the back and two at the front, or just two at the back
buckets and baby’s breath
vases of flowers (they can be silk) and branches, and lanterns
pomanders and petals
You can also use other things on the pews-grapevine balls with silk flowers
– family, baby or couple pics
mason jars with simple wildflowers
paper cones and baby’s breath

I forgot to mention that the orchids on the branches can be made from paper.

I think some of these ideas may work for me. 🙂

We hung lanterns with e-lights in them. We also incorporated them into the windowsiills to tie the look together. For the reserve pews we used a few different colors of pew bows on the outside of the aisles so the ushers knew.

@recapninja: Thats really interesting. I’ve seen a lot of flowers. Does anyone have just bows or fabric?

My pew decorations will be 2 flowers with a bow around them in my wedding colors. Haven’t had my wedding so no pictures.
This picture is one that our florist sent us. We will have roses though and a coral bow.
This picture is one the wedding coordinator at the church sent me. We are doing something similar but I think this photo only has 1 flower and we will have two.
