This is a really bad cell phone picture, but as you can see our church has blue pew seats and HUGE orange and red and yellow stained glass windows on two sides of the building.
MY COLORS ARE GREEN AND BROWN! I am not sure how bad the blue and reds are going to clash with all this. There isn’t much blue or red in the alter area so it won’t be so bad for pictures but will it look horrible with green and white pew flowers against all these other colors?

I honestly don’t think anyone will notice… You could use something like green hydrangeas or something like that…

Thanks, this is the type of flower we were thinking of hanging off the pews.

I think a white runner and pew decorations will soften it quite a bit! I wouldn’t worry about the colors. There are lots of browns throughout the church; the browns and greens will be offset by the white.
I lined the altar area for my wedding with potted hydrangeas–they were inexpensive, and definitely spruced things up a bit!

I think it’ll be fine. The window is beautiful! I like the idea of the flowers and the white runner. Any chance the church would let you remove the hymnals/books? That would take away some of the red/blue elements and give it a more wooden/brown look.

I think that it’ll be fine. The pews in the inspiration picture are purple…so no worries 🙂

Thats a good idea about asking to remove some of the books. I know the red books you see at the end of each pew is just the attendance log they take. That certainly should be able to be removed.
Sadly, they do not allow a runner. I guess because of the tile floor and risk of people slipping.
We are planning to do a lot of potted plants up on the alter area which will hopefully take keep the focus up there and bring in some green.

The church looks beautiful as it is.. Im sure incorporating your colors will not look bad!
