Are you allowed to hang things on the pews without tape or plastic (i.e. ribbon)?  If you hung flowers or paper lanterns from ribbon, the ribbon wouldn’t scratch.

You could also try a really beautiful aisle runner, something painted or detailed.

you could try just drapping the fabric over the tops of the pews. then hang balls of flowers ( i forget what they’re called) every so often to anchor it. also, what about using the floor along th pews?

Along the lines of where lindseyf was going….I was thinking you could have flower arrangements at the foot of some of the pews. Another idea, if you decide not to decorate the pews, is just a really gorgeous runner, which I think you could rent for a decent rate. To add some drama to it all, you could just save the money you would have spent on pew decos and place one or two giant floral arrangments near the altar. Gl!

i’m having 2.5 ft latice boxes topped with draping greenery and tool strung between them. This way nothing is touching the pews. Then they’ll be transfered over to the reception venue and lined up in front of the stage bellow our head table to add more visual appeal.

I am an event planner and I have done a wedding that was a similar set up.  The biggest problem that I had was that the pews were slanted and it was impossible to drape tulle or material in a straight line.  What you can do is use a free standing candle isle markers that have the hurricane globe and candle.  Make some large pew bows and place in the center of a flower swag and attach to each individual marker.  Another idea is to rent several small columns and place greenery plants or flower arrangements on each one.. You can skip every three pews so that you don’t have to spend much on trying to do each one.

you could also get cute potted plants and place them in front, then plant them after!

What about tall (of varying heights) glass cylinders filled with water and submerged orchids or calli lillies and a floating candle on top? Kind of like the picture

You know I think maybe less is more, especially when you have amillion things to DIY already. I am in agreement with the floor buckets of flowers along the aisle. I think its def an easy WOW piece and simple for you to put up and take down. Plus they double as decorations for the reception if need be.

would the church be ok with those over the door hooks? if so you could hang those and then hang little pails of flowers from them. they wouldn’t scratch and i bet you could get them at a dolar store for super cheap!
