    Definitely not just for casual decor – there are quite a few options for dressing them up. How about hanging them with satin ribbon, or insert a few crystals amonst the flowers?

    I think that floral pomanders will be just fine. Catholic chapels usually have beautiful wood and stained glass windows so you wouldn’t want to do floral arrangements that are too overpowering anyway. I agree with the PP that some nice satin ribbon and crystals will give them some extra pop.

    We are having a formal wedding and I am using poms as part of my decor. I don’t think they take away from the formality at all. I think you should use them, if that is what you want.

    cloud did very cute hanging lanterns on her pews, she used the flameless LED lights. I think pomanders are great and not too casual – but I’m biased as I used them myself!

    No offense to anyone here, but I just don’t get the pommanders!  I’ve never really liked them.

    I”m not 100% sure if I know what  pomander ball is. I’m assuming it’s the ‘flower ball’ made of real flowers usually hanging from a satin ribbon. If that is correct, then that is actually what I am having my flower girl carry and what will be on the pew ends of our church. And we are having a formal wedding too. I think they are actually quite dressy and since I’m having a June wedding that isn’t black tie, I thought it was fine.

    I think it’s fine! There are so many ways to dress them up, too! You should do it.

    Maybe she is trying to convince you to go for something bigger and more elaborate so she can make more money???

    I was actually thinking of getting those tissue paper pomanders for my aisles.  I voted against it because it does seem too casual for the decor of my church.  Now, if they were real flower pomanders, that’s definitely not casual (I just couldn’t afford the real flowers).  I am using moroccan lanterns instead.  It goes well with the decor of my church which is an old mission 🙂

    You can definitely use pomanders.  In my opinion, they are not casual, rather, they are more modern 🙂

    I think they might look casual in bright colors, but I think they’d be fine in white.

    I think pomanders are very elegant and would look beautiful in the space you mentioned, especially since they are white.  If you want to dress them up, maybe you can add crystals or do a pearl bead handle instead of regular ribbon?
