Can anybody suggest flowers or decorations for the chairs on the aisle at my ceremony? We will be married in a room at the hotel where the reception is. The guests will sit in chairs with white linen covers, similar to the chairs that will be used at the dinner reception. I would like to decorate the aisle with flowers of some type. We are planning light pink and creamy white. The aisle will be too narrow – only about 5 feet – for flowers, so I thought something to place on the slipcovered white chairs would be perfect. Can anybody suggest something and how to attach it to the chair? I would do just the chairs on the middle aisle where the bride will walk.

Are you allowed to use pins on the linen covers? If so, you could do something like this.
The ones pictured are artificial, and are held in place with straight pins.

You can repeat the flowers you are using elsewhere or do something entirely different.
If you are allowed to use pins on your chair covers, that is the easiest fastener.
If not you can use Command velcro poster hangers. You remove one sticky side, apply it to the pew decoration, then when you are dcorating just remove the other sticky side and attach to the chair cover. They remove easily with no damage to any surface.
I like the look of these cones. You can make them ahead of time using silk flowers.
you could also do something like this with silk flowers and ribbon-guests enter the rows from the other side.
you can do flowers in tin pails- use the ribbon to hang them from the chair
you can also use alternative flowers like coffee filter flowers
pomanders are nice and can be made ahead of time

I’ll be using pew cones. I have pew’s rather than chairs, but it would work the same, you would just hang it from the top of the chair like how Julies posted earlier.
I made mine from a 12×12 piece of scrapbook paper and a styrofoam cone to hold the flowers in place since we’re using silk. Really though, you may not even need the styrofoam depending on how big/small/tall/short you make the cones themselves. I’m using hydrangea’s since they are so filling and I only need 2 to fill the cone.

Here’s another example of pew cones on chairs. These aren’t mine, I just found the pic via google.
