    Your situation sounds identical to mine! A huge church with a long isle a lot of pews!  I really don’t care to have anything on the pews, but my mom thinks something needs to be there.  Because I really don’t care, I thought I would make some bows.  I don’t know what kind of bow I will do, but I think something small with some crepe paper flowers attached will be what I end up with.  I think whatever you decide to do will be lovely!

    While I think the bows are cute, I don’t think they would up the “wow” factor of a church at all.  I think you should just let the beauty of the church shine through and not worry about investing your time or money into the bows!

    If there are more pews than usual, that should give you more incentive to not decorate them! I’d skip the bows and let the church be itself. 🙂

    I don’t think that you need bows on every pew, but you may wish to mark the pews that are reserved for family usage.  Your families will probably wait to be seated, so (at least in my region) the first several pews are “saved” for the family, and marked with pew ribbons so that the ushers know where to start seating the rest of the congregation.  You may even want to tell the family members that you are honoring to be seated within the ribbon.

    I don’t think you need to decorate at all.  My florist said the more grandiose the church, the less you should add to it especially if your budget is low.  Don’t worry the church will be perfect as is!

    I am also getting married in a large church, and we are not doing decorations at all.  I’m not sure about your level of religiousness, but I have felt that adding more details for people to look at will only distract from the purpose of the ceremony, which is to pledge our love to one another, in front of God.  I don’t think all churches need decor, and sometimes less is more!
