I think the hydrangea and ribbon accents on the pews showed that something special was about to happen. The brides color palate of simple creams and ivory helped tone down the colors already present in the church and not compete with them. We also chose not to put the flowers on every pew. Every third one was decorated and helped draw your eye down to the altar without costing a fortune.
Simply tied on with an elegant satin ribbon, three stems of hydrangea made a nice sized accent on the pew and was noticable the moment you walked in. Although we often do one bloom, if budget allows, 3 really makes a wonderful show, don't you think?
