Bees, I am REALLY struggling with how to decorate our church. I don’t want to use an aisle runner (it’s 80 feet anyway!) and we can’t use petals … so any kind of aisle decor is out. I want to do something for the pews, but I can’t seem to find anything DIY that I love.
Tissue poms were way too complicated for me to figure out ….
Pew bows are way too common.
Fresh flowers are kind of expensive :/
Does anyone have any other ideas??

Tell us something about your wedding-colors, theme, day, evening…
cardstock stars with glitter- you could cut any shape that suits your wedding
braided streamers, ribbons or fabric strips
family pics or pics of the two of you
grapevine ball with silk flower
feather balls with hanging crystal- you could also use pheasant feathers
oversized crepe paper flowers
Mrs Peep Toe did these simple sashes tied with ribbon
spray painted pumpkins

We are doing a nautical themed wedding — colors are navy blue and lime green, anchors and navy and white stripes are our “thing” I guess. 🙂

You could use white styrofoam anchors that you cut yourself or buy premade. I would do one about every four rows as they could be a bit much if overdone.
Hang them from navy ribbons or white boat lines.
You could also make large scale knots with white rope and hang those on the pews.

How about using the boat rope and then at every other pew also hang a tin or white pail with some silk flowers in it in blue and white.
Don’t forget that Zip ties are your best friend for this or the 3M hooks that peal right off. Churches don’t like you taping things to their pews.
I take it your groom is in the Navy ?? You could figure a way to drape it around the top of each pew, then swag it and go to the next.. Here is a pick where we used tulle and candles on the floor. You could use the rope and candles on the floor too. The pew candles are our own design and work great with the battery lights.

They are pretty easy you just need the martha stewart hydrangea punch, you punch the flowers out of some cardstock or coloured paper, layer 2 flowers on top of each other, then pin into a styrofoam ball. There are a lot of tutorials online.
