Many couples like doing their weddings in a church in order to receive God’s blessings. Although, you will be doing your wedding in a church, it doesn’t mean that the event should be dry—it should be fun as one done on the beach or any other place. One of the most effective ways of making your church wedding exciting is using the right decorations. Here are tips on how to decorate the church for your big day:

Standing displays

There are many types of standing displays that you can use to decorate your wedding. The most popular are: fabric, plants and flowers. The cool thing is that you don’t need to buy the decorations: you can easily rent them from a party rental company.

You can place the displays at the church windows, on the pews, inside and outside the church entrance and anywhere else you find it necessary.

When using the standing displays you should be cautious that you don’t use displays that are too tall such that they block people from seeing what is going on at the altar.

Aisle runners

Aisle runners provide you and the wedding party with visual focus thus you become the centre of attention. You shouldn’t go for runners all the time—you should only consider them when the floor is distracting. For example, when it’s elaborately decorated or when it has a run-down look.


Candles have been used for a long time in churches. In addition to providing pleasant lighting they also add elegance to the church. You should note that different colours have different meanings; therefore, you should use the right colour for your event.

One of the best places to place the candles is on the table. To protect the party tablecloths you should use candle holders or cups.

Keep it simple

While it’s good to decorate your church wedding, sometimes it’s unnecessary especially when the church has a rich artwork.


These are ideas on how to decorate the church for your wedding. You should note that many churches have strict decoration rules; therefore, before you start any decoration you should meet with your parish staff and find the decorations allowed.

While you can decorate the entire church on your own or with the help of your wedding party, its wise that you hire the services of a rental company that will not only help you with decoration ideas, but will also provide you with the decoration items.
