How Many Pew Bows Should I Order to Decorate for my Wedding?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions brides ask as they make plans to decorate for the ceremony and reception. The answer to this question depends on several factors: (a) the number of pews or aisles of your church, synagogue, hall or other venue; (b) whether you want to have a decoration on every pew end or just alternating every other; and (c)whether you want to incorporate the same decorations into your reception decor. Although it’s a matter of personal preference, in an average size venue, the most common practice is to decorate each pew to create a uniform look. Also, when you consider that pew bows are significantly less expensive than decorating with fresh or silk flower arrangements, you really have more flexibility. For really large venues, however, it is acceptable to just decorate alternate rows or to, for example, decorate the first 10 rows on either side of the aisle.
In making your decision, it's also important to consider the importance of the photography asthetic. Your photographer will traditionally take a large number of photos as you and your bridal party walk down the aisle. And, very often, the photographer will actually take shots at various angles of the pews themselves so you have photos to remind you of how special the venue looked. So, think of the pew decorations as a frame for your walk down the aisle as well as making the setting of your ceremony special. To keep a balanced look, you may want to have each end decorated.
Of course, you don't have to order your bows through a florist (and pay their high prices). There is a huge selection of ribbon materials available so you can go high end with wired satin, tulle bows or satin acetate or more economically with materials such as embossed flora satin and still have gorgeous results.
