    What's your theme? What does the venue look like?

    My theme is a love story. the ceremony is at just a regular catholic church, nothing spectacular. our reception is at tonawanda castle. we are naming all the tables after our favorite books.

    Here are a couple more options. I know you said you didn't want to use bows, but the second picture would go with your romantic book theme. And the third would be a way to dress up the bow. The first pic you could use an inexpensive flower like carnations (they have a bad rap, but they come in a gazillion colors and are inexpensive) to create an inexpensive pew decoration.

    I made the tissue pomanders and they came out really cute, I think I spent about $30 for all of the supplies. However it's pretty time consuming.

    @greyash, how many did you make for that much. the church has like 30 pews i want to say... so even if i did every other pew, it would be 30 to have one on each side.

    WOW that's a lot of pews! I only made 6, but I had probably enough tissue paper and ribbon for about 3-5 more. I'm only having 30 people at the ceremony so I only needed 6, 3 for each side skipping rows. There will be the empty rows towards the back but I'm not worried about that. I think 30 of these pomanders would be a LOT of work, I only made six and I was exhausted. I ended up making about 25 flowers per pomander so that would be hard to do.

    Maybe you could just do something simple since there are so many pews, I found these on ebay. There white bows you can put on the pews and there's 20 for $20

    I am alternating with bows, and small bouquets. I didn't want the look of all bows cause thats ALOT of bows! but I wanted the touch of color with the flowers.

    Though I have been married for nearly 20 years, I am currently doing wedding decor for new brides. When looking at wedding sites, I came across this blog, and thought I would share a picture of the pew decorations I just came up with and put together for an upcoming wedding I am working on. These pew decorations were very inexpensive (less than $1.50 each in materials) and very simple to put together (about 10 minutes each plus time for paint to dry).
