How to hang wedding flowers from church pews with Doey’s pew clips

Maximize your bridal budget with wedding flowers that transform from wedding aisle décor to reception centerpieces. CathysWraps Vases and Doeys’ Church Pew Clips create dual purpose floral arrangements that can be repurposed as reception centerpieces.

Erin did, proving she is as smart as she is beautiful! She wanted practical cost effective wedding decorations so, we designed her wedding flowers to do double duty as wedding aisle decorations one minute and reception table centerpieces the next.

We sought advice from my local florist Katy Breen, owner of Katy’s Daisies in Seattle. Katy helped Erin select and order the flowers. The wedding was in a small town in Oregon, so I made fresh cuts to the stems and refrigerated them overnight before placing them in buckets of water and driving 4 hours to her parents home where it was up her aunts, cousins, mother and grandmother and I to make the flower arrangements. None of us have any floral experience and Erin took a great Leap of Faith letting in us. Thank you Erin!

The day before her wedding we had fun visiting with one another while making up the flower arrangements. Each one is just a bit different and each was made with love.

We refrigerated the floral arrangements overnight and on the day of the wedding, did the last minute assembly at the church, adding CathysWraps Decorative Wraps and Doey’s Church Pew Clips while my husband hung the flowers on the church pews.

Post Ceremony, we transferred the wedding aisle flowers to the reception and repurposed the wedding aisle décor as reception table centerpieces, decorating the bar area, the powder rooms, the entry way and the cake tables.
