Welcome and congratulations on your engagmeent!!!!  

Depending on what your chapel will allow, you could possibly string up some twinkle lights and / or some sort of garland, or maybe some strings hanging down with crystals or shells? 

Can you post a pic of the chapel front?  That would probably help spark some of the Hive’s creativity.  Wink

Florists and event companies rent props that can help spruce up the alter area.  Flowers (two waist high pillars or metal stands with large vase flower arrangements behind alter on either side), candles (large candelabras or a few single candle holders on metal stands), and even drapery.  How special & personal you’re getting married in your alma mater’s chapel!!!  Lots of options so don’t be scared…much easier to add some interest to a blank wall than have to camouflage an ugly stained glass piece or circa 1970 decor behind the altar (which I’ve seen plenty of).  All eyes will be on you and your dress anyway.

I’m having the same problem (don’t have a photo yet).  However, I love the beadboard background.

I’ve seen neat things done with a table draped with a cloth and covered in pillar candles of different heights.
