- Wedding: December 1969
Hi, I’m getting married in August and the church we are having the ceremony in has 2 aisles. Its a church of my fiances family. I didn’t know what it looked like and was booked before I saw it. Its definately not what I invisioned at all! I grew up in a church with beautiful wood floors and stain glass windows. This church has weird off green carpet and lacks the charm of an old church. I’m stuck with it now as the invitiations have already gone out. But even more frustrating is having 2 aisles. I didn’t dream of my wedding much as a little girl but one thing I did want was to walk down a center aisle. I’m trying to make the best of it as my fiance could tell I was disappointed I didnt like the church but am tempted to have the ceremony at the church I grew up in
I figure I’ll go down the one aisle with my dad and leave with my husband down the other. The one thing really bugging me is that we both have big families. The church has one big row of pews in the middle and 2 small ones on either side I guess my worry is that when the family goes to sit all of his family or mine will end up near the front essentially bumping the other side farther to the back. it gets more complicated as both my parents are remarried so I have 4 sides to my family and 2 for his. I’m not sure if it would be easiest to do some sort of decoration down the center so each pew would be half brides family and half grooms. The ushers will be able to direct guests accordingly. Any suggestions or ideas for the center pew decor?
