@amy_outhwaite: 

To me the bottom pic looks awkward because they are ignoring the fact that the door is off center.Because the door is not centered, rather than try to center the altar on the front wall, I would move the aisle to center on the door. You can have more chairs on one side than the other. Does that door close? If so, and you use it to center the aisle, you could hang something on the door. You can use 3M Command Hooks.  They cause no damage to surfaces.

If there is no door, you could hang a ribbon featureacross the space

or some draping

or use something like this paper roll with the vows as a backdrop.

 

 

You can hang something off the corner of the chairs without taking up aisle space. Rather than doing something tiny on all the chairs, which may look busy and not have much impact, you could decorate the back of only the aisle chairs

Instead of doing ribbons on each of the chairs you could do ribbons and/or flowers on just the chairs at the end of each row (might save you some money this way)

@amy_outhwaite:  Maybe pomanders on the chairs….like maybe on every other row or every 3rd row

@amy_outhwaite:  I highly recommend doing wall draping in this room! I would keep the chairs as they are because chiavari chairs are AMAZING! I don’t know exactly the cost of something like that, but it would make a big impact even in a small room. If you did two statement arrangements at the altar, I think it’d be GORG!

Hi @amy_outhwaite: , first and foremost I see you are new here… so a BIG Welcome to “the Hive”

Even before I read the reply that julies1949: wrote:

I saw the room as been off-centre and strange to the eye.

So even if you do nothing else, I’d fix that visual issue… as stated you don’t have to have an even number of chairs on each side of the aisle (4 + 4)… in this case the room is screaming to be set up as 5 + 3.

Gold Bows sound nice.

I am a lover of Flowers at Weddings… whether they are real or not.  If you have the budget real ones could be used here, and then transported / used at your Reception.  Silk, or inexpensive artificial ones could work well too.  If budget is an issue, you could hit up the Dollar Store… or just work with your Florist for greenery options.

Hope this helps,
