save money - skip the pew and church flowers

Joe and I stopped by our church on Saturday afternoon and there was a wedding going on! We snuck in for a few minutes and their ceremony was beautiful. Most of all, they had absolutely no flower decorations and I would not have noticed at all if I were a guest (except of course I'm a bride and I'm checking it out).

If you're looking for ways to save money and you're getting married in a church, skipping the pew decorations will not be missed! I actually prefer a church without additional decoration... it seems more meaningful that way.

Yup, I agree that to save money, you have to think about the things that a regular guest might not notice.

Especially, your church is big that some of the decorations might get lost.

There were details that I put in and people didn't notice. =(

I agree, most churches are quite ornate. My church is pretty plain so I think it needs pew decor. On a good note, all the pew decor will be moved to decorate my sweetheart table and the reception. =)
