Garlands are about to become your church wedding decoration best friend-there's truly no spot you can't adorn. But, do keep your garland decorations to a minimum, and stick to either lining the church door frames, the aisle, or the altar with these lush greens.

Welcome guests without taking away from the natural appeal of your wedding venue. A simple white sign with your names and date will do just the trick. Station this in the back entrance of the church so that it's the first thing guests see before they find their seats.

Woodland Box Planters

Or, for a more feminine feel, opt for florals to line the aisle. The boxy shapes of these planters mean they'll line up perfectly with each pew without taking up too much aisle space (and there's less worry about knocking them over). The whitewashed hue also makes for a pretty contrast against dark wood church interiors.

Large Faux Monstera Leaf

Make a huge statement that's not too overbearing. By scattering a few large botanicals around the front of the church, you can get your greenery fix for less than the cost of multiple smaller arrangements. Plus, guests won't even know these are faux versions.

Reserve your taller greens and florals for either side of the altar, stored in tall, stoneware vases. Plus, the bigger the blooms the better-you can relocate them to the reception for decor that does double duty.

Baby's Breath Wreath

Put your personal design touch on the outside of the church, too. Decorate the doors of the venue with wreaths of baby's breath, which have been known to symbolize everlasting love (the more you know). It doesn't get more wedding-appropriate than that.

Eucalyptus Gold Ring

Or, add a modern spin to your church door decor with a minimalist hoop, sprinkled with sprigs of eucalyptus. Personalize this decoration by adding wooden cutouts of your monograms within the wreath. If your church has double doors, you can even feature one wreath with your first initial and another with your future spouse's.
