      Before You Pick Church Ceremony Decor
      • Spark up a conversation with the church administrators to get the hang of the rules for church wedding decorations.
      • Decide a budget for the decorations.
      • If you are working with a wedding planner, a decor specialist or anyone else who will assist you with the church wedding decorations, then talk through your priorities and ideas with them, and how it will fit in with the theme and colour scheme for your wedding. If you have a tight budget, then setting priorities for decor will be especially vital.

      Below you will find all the unique ideas you want, aisle archway to show-stopping flower stands and everything in between.

      Aisle Archway 

      Frame your aisleway with an exquisite archway swirled with identical blooms from your bouquet. Incorporating a clear starting point in place, showcases everyone who walks down the aisle, from the bride to even the ring bearer.

      Bold Colour Schemes

      Throughout their year-round decor, certain churches feature bold colours. Adjunct the bold colour scheme within, with aisle blooms, altar displays and even your bouquets.

      Flowers and Floral Arrangement 

      Flowers- this church wedding decoration is not just simple, but much cost-effective. Incorporate them into the aisle, pew, and altar. Or think flower petals to line your aisle-you can make the most of real or faux flower petals. This makes for a simple, romantic, stylish and vivid decoration.

      Pew Vases 

      Let your blooms remain fresh during your wedding, by securing petite vases to the end of each pew that lines the aisle. Display a spray of flowers within each vase, which go well with your colour scheme.

      Wedding Welcome Signs 

      An elegant wedding welcome sign topped with floral garlands will look marvellous in any church setting. Flowers with some touch of green can truly step it up and even make the sign look much better! The best thing with welcome signs is that you can repurpose them as an art piece after your wedding and place them in your living room, to remind you of your special day.

      Rustic Entranceway

      This church wedding decoration idea is idyllic for framing the doorway of your church. Weave your blooms into various curved tree branches. For a simple church wedding decoration idea and an out of the box photo-op, attach both sides of the entrance!

      Ceremony Floral Arch 

      For a classic look, frame your ceremony with a vivid arch replete with blooms and greenery. For a tenacious theme, incorporate tulle throughout the arch.

      This decor is contingent on whether or not the church allows it or not, as well as the budget. If it’s allowed, then say I do below a ceremonial arch crafted out of roses, lilies or flowers you favour. But just ensure that the ceremonial arch matches the rest of the church decor. Otherwise, it may look very out of place.

      Exterior Decor 

      A good deal of time will be spent by your guests outdoors too. To add an accent to the outside architecture of your church, consider incorporating touches of flowers. This also makes for a perfect spot for first-look shots prior to the wedding.

      Wedding Carpets 

      A simple church wedding decoration is a wedding carpet in red, white, black or even brown. Maybe you can avail it from the church. Wedding carpet can conceal hideous carpeting and add an air of grace with ease. Let the ushers lay it down the aisle before the bridal party steps in. But make sure that they are properly secured in place, with weights or tapes.

      Keep it Simple 

      Getting hitched in a quaint, classic church? Then let the style of the church vindicate itself. Deck up the altar with a simple arrangement of roses and greenery to go well with you and your bouquets.

      Church Candle Accents 

      A lot of churches already bedeck the interior with altar candles and ornate candelabras. This church wedding decoration idea is to blend in the candle decor into your ceremony design, simply taking a cue from floral arrangements and ribbons(Think red).

      Natural or Eclectic Candles 

      Let there be light. No matter whether your church venue already has sunlight seeping in through the windows, candles can be a stunning addition to any nuptials as they create a tranquil and poised atmosphere.

      Since they won’t look much exciting when stacked on its own, complement them with a mirror or glass jar which help reflect the light.

      Go above and beyond with Lanterns 

      Vintage lanterns can illuminate all the way down to the love of your life. Line the aisle with vintage lanterns positioned strategically. You can choose from designs in the pricier side or modestly priced ones. The best thing with lanterns is that they’ll still look good as it is, even without adding any candles.

      Garden Ceremony

      Bring in the zest of a garden ceremony indoors by bringing in potted plants, tree branches and other touches of greenery to the church. For that fresh aesthetic, complete it with delicate fabric and white blooms.

      Don’t Forget the Balconies 

      Churches may have balconies at the back, over the altar or outside the church. Floral garlands can be swirled across the top of the balcony, just as altar railing. Or nestle candleholders between the sections of the garland atop the railing. You can also get the balcony bedecked with wedding lights draped in tulle, which exude a soft glow.

      Draping Decor 

      Frame your church doorway with soft blooms and more on lush greenery which dangles down. They are meant to extend this way, making them idyllic for an arbour or door frame.

      Floral Bouquets 

      Make the most of floral bouquets of varying sizes to decorate the interiors. The options of decking them are plenty- the entrance of the church, panels, windows, pews or even anywhere you fancy. But make sure not to go overboard with them or it may seem clumsy.

      Flower Stand 

      A couple of show-stopping flower stands will truly shine on your big day! Elegantly crafted and beautifully designed, flower stands can hold candles exuding a dramatic flair or can display flowers. A decor which can act as the key feature at the altar, or an accent piece for tables, flower stands truly shine.

      Be Mindful of the Rules 

      Most churches have stipulations regarding objects which you can and cannot use in the church. Obeying church wedding decorations rules are not merely a gesture of respect towards the church, but also make sure that you steer clear of fines for any damage later on. Prevalent rules at churches might comprise:

      • Restrictions on usage of candles
      • Restrictions on flower use, real and faux
      • Rules for adding decorations to the altar, balconies or pews.
      • Restrictions on usage of confetti, such as birdseed

      While you explore how to decorate for your nuptials, make sure that you tie the accents of your overall design and colour scheme into your church wedding ceremony decor. These preferences will even go a long way to design your wedding invites. Essentially, settle for a design which reflects you and the unique zest of your big day.
