Pew decoration??

I really like the pew bows but our chairs have no way of tying them on without upgrading the chairs at $9 a chair..no way. Does anyone have any other inexpensive elegant decoration ideas without having to worry about tying? Not sure how else to do it... My wedding theme is black and white with dark red accents. Thanks!

    It would depend on your chair...what kind of chairs do you have?

    I can't find a picture that resembles them and I don't really know too much about chairs but they're just basic plain Marriott chairs with no openings..rounded top...I guess we can try attaching something at the legs? I don't know.

    Michael's sells pew clips for a couple of bucks each, and there are other hanging vases readily available into which you could put flowers or greens.

    For those chair people usually use chair covers but that really increases cost.

    In that case try draping tulle or fabric down the aisle on the side of the chair. which can work with double sided tape probably. Guest will have to enter each row only from one side. It also prevents them from walking on your runner if you have one. And if you really like the bows, buy on and do a trial on one of the chairs to see if it would stay with double sided tape. The side of the chair should metal.

    It looks like that is whats holding these up here:

    or you can sit arrangements or pedals allow the edges of the aisle like this:

    Hope that helps... This is a tough one.

    What about fresh flowers in pots on the ground - instead of pew bows?

    Another way to secure the pew bows is with magnets- you can hot glue them to the bows (of course that is assuming it is a magnetic type of metal) but this seems to secure the bows better than double sided tape and also will support the added wieght of tulle or organza draped in between to line off the aisle. You can easily get the magnets at craft stores and such.

    Good luck!

    Would tieing it around the top of the legs look weird? I like the idea of potted plants lining the asile..

    Thanks everyone! I really liked the petals lining the chairs and I hadn't thought of the magnet idea...I really I hope our chairs have some medal! We might actually do chair covers but I still think I would want something else to line the aisle. Thanks again!

    As a wedding designer may I suggest using tall column vases with french braided ribbon on them to mark the ailse?

    This look is beautiful and the designs can be reused as table accents.

    Our favorite daytime look is to fill the vases with silk rose petals and use a sheer or sating braided ribbon with a bow. these are placed on the asile and add a modern yet romatic feel.

    Option 2 for indoor or evening is to fill with water within 3 inches of the top and add a floating candle, 2 long stem roses can be submerged inside the romatic candlelit aisle is a real photo op.

    Feel free to contact me at my website, I can send a picture or two of some easy ideas.

    Of course the simple option is to buy potted daisies or ferns add a single short Shepherds crook and hang the ribbon from these, you can find at www.efavors.com , we use these on weddings with plastic chairs.

    What about using free-standing aisle candelabras? If you don't like the idea of candles, simply don't use the candles! You can decorate the stands with flowers, ribbon or whatever your heart desires!
