do you mean these type of bows?

 

NOT like these?

 

i think you could use white gift bows for the pew bows. Maybe in white or ivory? i would stay away from metallic though. and maybe get the “bigger” fuller ones like this?

😀

I say skip the bows if you’re tight on budget.

If you have Michael’s near you, I saw some pew bows there.  They are already made and come in a box of 20, I think.  They are about $40.  That is what I am doing – and I have 40% off coupon, so it won’t break the budget!

I think everyone will know that they are stick-on gift wrapping bows. I’ve never seen pew decoration that looks like that. Also, in my experience the adhesive on those bows isn’t very strong, so if someone brushes up against it, it might fall off.

you might be able to get away with it, but if your tight on a budget, but want something, create your own bows with some ribbon. what are your wedding colors?

I wouldn’t use those unless you can find those 12 inch pull tag bows so they look substantial enough. You can also scout out bolts of tulle to tie around pews and attach simple silk flowers to the center or anything you like,or keep them plain. Even check out Ebay for spools of really wide ribbon to use. There are also several sellers who make and sell them for much cheaper than any stores I’ve seen them sold premade.
