Do you have pics of your church? Any information about your colors?

Have you considered having your ceremony not at your church?

I practically grew up at my church, I’ve been going there for over 20 years. When church members get married, they get married at the church, simple as that.

But I had some of your same concerns, so I picked a venue where we could hold both our reception and ceremony. It freaked out a lot of people at first. But once my pastor was on board with it, everyone else kind of calmed down and let it go.

I don’t know if that’s an option for you, but you should consider it if it is…

You could try and bring in some rustic elements, like moss initials and branching/twigs. I love the look of the moss initials hanging on the door. You can hang them from wreath hangers if the church has the traditonal doors in front that everyone would come through. And if you have a table with the programs, put them in a basket decorated in moss/twigs. My florist made some end cap decorations that had some flowers and branching and ribbon that matched my wedding colors. Maybe your florist could do something like that and fix them to the end of the pews.

Without seeing a pic of your actual church and the front, it’s hard to think of what you could do up front, if anything. Sounds like you might not have much room. Are you doing a unity candle or something that has a table? You can decorate that with the same rustic elements (moss, branching, flowers). A florist should be able to fit in some floral arrangements and could add some branching to flow with the other elements.

you can hang mason jars at the ends of the pews

or make burlap cones

grapevine balls

you can find or make rustic boxes- easy to fill with potted plants

galvanized buckets

you could place a cluster of moss and grapevine balls and flower pomanders on each side of the rear of the aisle

you could use an antique or shabby chic piece of furniture as your altar
