Do you have a picture of the space? It’s hard to make suggestions when i can’t really visualize the problem.

Im having the same issue, our church is really plain as well.  I think im just gonna decorate the aisles with tulle and maybe DIY pomanders since large floral arrangements are out of the budget.

Our church was waaaay bigger than we needed.  But it’s our home church that we go to, so it was really the only option.  The church has 40 pews and we only filled like 4 or 5 on each side.  It looked pretty empty when I walked in, but I wasn’t really thinking about that…

For us, our church is our part-time home church as well.  We go to church there half the time.  FI’s family has been going there for 25 years and has deep roots there.  It has historical significance that is very important to Fiance and I (first Catholic church for slaves built in the area).  yeah we could go find a bigger, prettier church; maybe one of the Basilica’s in the area, but the emotional significance would not be the same.

You can use ribbon rather than tulle to block off the aisle. That would be lighter.

Do you have ushers? They can ask everyone to move to the middle of the center pews.

I like MasqueradeMom idea. Maybe have the bigger decorations outside the aisles instead of inner. The inner aisle can be lighter with tulle blocking of the back pew and aisle decorations.
