When you are planning a wedding, one of the things that you have to consider is the decorations. The type of decorations that you will need depends on the type of wedding you are having. If you are having a church wedding, the decorations do not have to be expensive, but can be simple yet elegant. When you start figuring out the decorations that you need for your church wedding, you need to make sure that you have decorations for the doors, both the entrance and exit, the aisle, alter, pews, floor, and ceiling.

You can use a variety of things for decoration such as ribbons, candles, flowers, lanterns, and lights. Before you buy anything for decorations, make sure that you know the color theme of your wedding and that you buy things that coordinate with each other. Vary the shades of the colors of your decorations so it does not look bland.

When you choose flowers you can use either fresh or silk flowers. Flowers can be made into small bouquets and hung on the ends of the pews or you can even make a wreath and hang it on the door as they come into the church.

Depending on the church’s policies, you could take some LED lights and string them around the entrance and exit door for an evening wedding. At the altar you can use candelabras or simple candle sticks on the altar or on the window sills.

For an afternoon or morning wedding you could use balloons, flowers, wedding chair covers, and ribbon to decorate the doors,

You can take faux pearls and intertwine them with flowers and ribbons on the end of the pews and across the front of the altar. To add a delicacy to your wedding decorations use tulle. From the pews you can hang this sheer fabric shaped like in the form of a “U.” You can attache to the center of the tulle a complementing ribbon or maybe some flowers or faux pearls. The best colors of tulle to get are silver, pink, or white.

Some people also use potted plants for their wedding decorations. You can get several of them and put them on either side of the door or inside various corners of the church. The simple decorations can be anything that the bride wants to use. The only limit is your imagination. Once you decided on the colors and theme of your wedding sit down with a friend of family member and start designing what decorations that you want to use.
