One thing we did last weekend for a ceremony was we used the high centerpieces (long vases with beautiful flowers on top) to line the aisle.  It saved the bride a lot of money on both the ceremony and reception decor. 

However, you don’t always need to decorate your ceremony site. Sometimes, the venue may already be very elaborate and to add more may take away it’s natural beautiful.  We got married in a church that had beautiful wood floors with antique chairs instead of pews.  We lined the aisle with some flowers my grandmother created, and place two altar pieces.

You should check to see if the Church plans on supplying you with any decorations, candles, flowers etc…This way you can incorporate their items with how you envision your day to look. Plus it can inspire you too.

We made these wreaths for the ends of the first 6 rows of pews in our church and then will swag tulle along the remainder of the pews.  I like the aisle decorated, but the rest of the church is pretty enough so that’s all we’re doing.

Make sure you check with site for restrictions. I had a bunch of ideas for the ceremony but the church doesn’t allow most of them. From what I hear, most Catholic churchs are this way, they want the focus to be on the ceremony, not the decor. (OK with me once i realized I was saving $$$)

Well this doens’t help you a whole lot, but I’m not decorating mine. It’s so huge and vast insidde that to make it even bnoticable wiould cost more then I am willing to spend – lots more! I have 2 story walls of windows on each side of the room, so the scenery and the light will be enough for us.
