The church I grew up in and attended my entire life until I moved away decided to build a new modern building, and after removing all of the stained glass windows from the old one, tore it down. 🙁 It broke my heart as it was old and beautiful, and full of memories. Now it is just an empty lot. They built a new church across town, and it is just very plain. It is a large santuary with no character. So, how can I decorate it to make it pretty? And to distract from the plain tan walls, carpet and chairs? I stole some pics from another girl that got married there, so it is sort of decorated, but not how I would like for it to be. The room with the fold out chairs is like a room you walk through to get to the sanctuary, I would love for that room to be decorated also. And those windows covered so that nobody can see through it so they dont see me before I walk.

Lots of flowers! Some little white christmas lights would make the space romantic. I’ll keep thinking 🙂

These are some pictures of sort of what I had in mind decor wise. I love the trees and the lights, and lots and lots of candles. I dont know how I would make it work, but I would LOVE something along these lines. Gotta love Pinterest!

Get an aisle runner and line it with rose petals. Then depending on your budget, put lots of candles and flowers all over the place.

@ChellFish22: Tan walls, carpet and chairs are not a bad thing. Ask the bees who are dealing with red or purple carpet!
Will the folding chairs be up in the anteroom?
Tell us something about your wedding. It’s nicer if the decor in the church has some connection to what’s used at the recpetion.
Of your two inspiration pics, the first one is do-able. The trouble with Pinterest is that some of the ideas are just way too much- both logistically and financially.
It is easy enough to set tree branches in plaster of paris, or rocks in a bucket, add some flowering branches or hot glue silk flowers on the branches and add some lighting.
