jgargiulo :  You can keep the decor simple for the ceremony space. You could line the aisle with lanterns, and alternating candles (you can get the led candles instead of candles that need to be lit) and flower petals. That’s simple.  Where will the reception take place? Will that be in the church as well? You could always use candles of various sizes as table decor along with a variety of greenery such as eucalyptus. You could use the same decor from the ceremony space to double as your reception decor. If you have a planner who could set this up and change things out for you to save money.  You can get cangles from hobby  lobby and michaels. They both have sales and coupons online to use. You could also try quick candles on line. I’ve ordered things for my wedding from there and they have great prices.

Some simple flowers or greenery down the aisle would be a nice touch. Depending on the budget and time of day you could do lanterns as well.

Ours was pretty simple too.  We added bows with flowers to the aisle like PP suggested.

I’m a librarian on a librarian’s salary, but I really want to decorate my church for the ceremony.  You know what’s effective and affordable?  Wholesale tulle.  I got mine from tulleshop.com – a hundred yard roll of the 6″ width color of your choice for $2?  Yeah.  I got it by the crate.  I’ve been making bows for the last couple of months.  Not very well.  I am clutsy and needed practice and ruined a lot at first, thus I needed the wholesale prices. 🙂  But at the local big box craft stores, they seemed to average $3 with coupons for 25 yards.  A little draping, some bows, some accents if you do go with greenery, boom.  There are other wholesalers out there too – this is the one I picked at random and they delivered my order quickly and accurately, so I thought I’d give them a mention.  Google or check Pinterest for Tulle Pew Bows and get all sorts of ideas for different designs, all pretty easy.

Good luck!

Doing simple sprigs on the end of each pew is an affordable and classic way to decorate.

jgargiulo :  most catholic churches are happy to keep flowers and re-purpose them for altar decor. greenery hung in clusters at the end of the every 3rd or 4th pew could work, or bunches of baby’s breath would also be cost effective and pretty. you can also do tulle bows/draping.

also consider plants — you could start them from seeds even at the beginning of the summer and then just have them in your yard (or your parents if you don’t have room) – much cheaper than cut flowers and generally they give a lot more visual impact
