Let’s see what things can be done for a religious church ceremony. In general, houses or worship offer the classic type of setting. You have to inform yourself on what types of decorations are allowed and afterwards coordinate your own ideas with the policies and the existing décor. The potential of an indoors church is more limited. Flowers are the safest way to go, and those in medium sizes.

You are free to use any of your favorite large plants, festive garlands and stringent lighting. You can play with fabric and other specific motifs that fit the theme.

The most impressive thing of this ceremony was perhaps the doors entrance. The bride wanted something unique, something fun and creative for her walking down the aisle moment. So she decided to display two doors, held upright by two ushers.
The doors opened as the ceremony begun and the bride walked down the aisle in a spectacular way. The guests were very impressed by this arrangement! It is definitely a more original way to get married and we think this style fits perfectly well an elegant outdoors wedding. The bride wanted her wedding to be based on all things simple but creative.
This is why she invested so much in the DIY elements of décor she created for the ceremony and party. The cream colored canvas and the gardenia garlands she used for the “altar” were pretty lovely too. This is a romantic setting fit for a modern-day ranch wedding ceremony. Another beautiful hanging decoration that we love in this wedding is the bulb light garland across the dance floor.
This is a fun and easy way of decorating an outdoors spot and making it look more inviting, more cheerful and festive. The hanging décor is one of the trendiest things to do in an alfresco wedding.
