Wedding Church Decoration Tips

Are you getting married in a Church? Have you been looking for some Church Decoration Tips? If so, read on for some ideas

The type of decorations for your church wedding will depend on the location of your wedding, the time of year that you are getting married and the theme of your wedding if you are having a theme. Here are a few wedding church decoration tips for those of you going for a traditional wedding.

Flowers are one of the things that you need to think about first - a wedding would look very dull without them! as well as being important for decoration of the church, flowers are also a big feature in all of the different locations and stages of the wedding.

You could even create a colour theme to your wedding just by co-ordinating all of the flowers, including your own bouquet, the bridesmaid bouquets, the corsages worn by the mother of the bride and mother of the groom as well as the buttonhole flowers of the groom and his best man and ushers.

Usually in at a church wedding there are flowers at the altar, in the lobby and along the aisle on the ends of the rows of seats. You probably also want to have flowers on the tables at your wedding reception and you may want to use similar colours or types of flowers to the ones you used to decorate the church.

The flowers that you decide on will depend on all sorts of things including the colours and the style of your wedding dress, the bridesmaid's dresses, the type of rooms that you are using, and also the time of year. You can reduce the cost of your wedding flowers by using flowers that are in season at the time of year of your wedding. Your florist will be able to advise you of this and show you photos and examples of flowers.

Unless you have had some experience of flower arrangement you probably will not want to arrange the flowers yourself. This is one of these last-minute tasks and even if you do have flower arrangement skills you will no doubt have so much do on the morning of your wedding.

Some florists may set the arrangements up for you without extra cost if you order all of the flowers from them. Alternatively you could have a friend do it or perhaps find someone through the church that you are getting married in.

Another way to decorate the church is with candles. The church will probably already have standard candles and candleholders that they can supply but you may want to supply your own to make them more individual. Be sure to speak to the minister or priest about doing this first.

Just looking through some wedding magazines or catalogs may give you lots of other wedding church decoration tips. You will also get lots of ideas by visiting wedding fairs.
