Decor? Ideas?

We think we've found a venue.  It's a small church we've been visiting in the artsy/old money part of town.  All the buildings are old and beautiful.  However, this little church is not big and beautiful.  How can I make something classy in a modest space.  The carpet and pews are blue. But there are some redeeming things too . . . a brick arch at the altar, visible white rafters, lots of light from the windows (although we are having a 6 pm ceremony).


 


Any ideas?  We want to use a place in our budget that will hold all of our guests, but I don't want to compromise atmosphere.

What about potted flowers along the aisle? I think Eugugoly did this with white mums, and it's really pretty.

You could always tone down the blue with an aisle runner or white rose petals sprinkled down the aisle and simple white florals as Dirty suggested sounds beautiful!
