The Q: I am getting married in a church ceremony, and I am wondering how we can dress up the church without blowing the budget on flowers? I'm nervous that if we just have a couple of alter pieces we'll spend a lot of money and they won't be noticed.
The A: I have had this question in my inbox for a couple of weeks while I tried to gather together photos and things, but then today I got a piece of news that prompted to just get this post up.
First off, your instincts are right. From a floral perspective, besides pew bows, alter pieces really aren't that noticeable. Pew bows done right show up in photos, and add a softness that says "wedding" to guests.
Here at Always a Bridesmaid though (and at MANY other planning shops all over the country) we turn to Original Runner Company to make our ceremony sites spectacular. Emily at Original Runner has been making stand out runners for years- and whether you do a custom design or walk down the aisle on a colored runner, they make a wedding fashion statement! While the runner is an added cost, it is a surefire conversation piece that your guests will notice AND for a limited time, they are 15% off. Order your Original Runner before Dec. 15th and they will take a nice little discount off. Ordering info is below AS well as a couple of photos of their fabulous, Original Runners!
