Bows have been traditional favorites for pew decorations. There are all kinds of fancy ribbons available in the stores today. They come in all kinds of sizes, patterns and colors.

Fabric Drapes

If you want elaborate wedding pew decorations, then you can have fabric draped onto the pews. This will completely change the look of the church, so please ensure you know what you want.
If the church is pretty in itself, fabric drapes will just overshadow the natural beauty of the church. So before getting the pews draped, think about the look you want on your wedding day. You don't want the church to have an overdone look. Moreover, don't forget that getting fabric draped in the church will prove quite expensive.

Mini Wreaths

Mini Bouquets

One can either prepare a bouquet of the same type of flower or else get a bouquet prepared from flowers of the same color, depending on the wedding theme.

Wedding cones also make great wedding pew decorations. Depending on the type of decoration you choose, you need to look for appropriate clips that are sturdy enough to bear the weight of the pew decoration. Moreover, one can also use pew cones to hang flowers on the sides of the pew.
