Wedding pew decorations are a simple and cheap way of lifting your church decorations, provided you don't get carried away.
Don't forget, as with aisle decorations they are not essential although your guests will have plenty of time to notice them as they wait for you to arrive. For this reason it makes sense to provide some decorations in the church and wedding pew decorations are a simple and cheap way of achieving this.
As I have already mentioned in my page on wedding aisle decorations less is definitely more and definitely cheaper! It's easy to get carried away and keep adding and adding "stuff" until you've spent a fortune on very gaudy decorations, please don't fall into this trap.
Get a friend (whose opinion you trust) to come with you. Tell them before hand to stop you if you’re going overboard. Take a few minutes to count the number of pew ends and then multiply that by the cost of each flower arrangement. If that doesn't convince you to think again nothing will!My tips for pew wedding decorations are as follows:
Use lots of greenery to reduce the number of flowers you need. It's easy to make these up yourself as they don't have to be very intricate. When fixing the flower arrangements to the pews you can use ribbon or (my favourite) try cutting a bicycle inner tube into 2cm wide strips (like big elastic bands). Stretch these over the pew ends and use them to attach your decorations. Once finished you can hide the rubber bands with ribbon.
You can make your wedding pew decorations
and aisle decorations as simple or as ornate as you wish, however my personal advice would be
to keep it simple as this tends to look more elegant, be easier to
prepare and cheaper.Check out my article on easy wedding decorations for more ideas.
Ultimately the choice is yours and with a little thought and preparation you will be able to come up with something that is right for your big day.
