You should make the most of the available space when decorating for a wedding. Church window sills are an excellent space you can tastefully decorate to tie into your overall wedding theme. Decorate the window sills using the same theme as other decorations, but keep them simple. Window sill decorations should add to the overall look but never distract attention away from the front of the church -- or the bride. Use decorations that are pleasing, but keep the eye moving to where the ceremony will take place.
A simple yet elegant decoration for church window sills, which can be seen both inside and outside, is a single candle in each window. Candles lend ambiance but are not particularly distracting. Place a single pillar candle in each window sill, selecting candles that are either white or ivory -- or get them in one of the wedding colors. Use simple candle-holders. Consider using flame-less candles if fire is a concern.
While window sills are generally small spaces and cannot accommodate a large arrangement, small simple floral arrangements that complement the overall floral theme are appropriate. Consider placing a single bloom, clipped short, in a small vase in each window sill. Select simple vases that match. A clear glass vase makes an excellent choice. Add greenery if desired.
While not everyone gets teary-eyed at weddings -- those that do will be thankful to find tissue boxes in the window sill. Store-bought tissue boxes will not work as decoration. They must be cleverly disguised to make them appealing, while still functional. Consider painting a tissue box with an even coat of glue and then covering it with solid-colored glitter (silver or a wedding color). You can also buy matching tissue box covers at general merchandise retailers or home decor stores. Incorporate your wedding theme into the tissue box decor. Scatter rose petals on the window sill around the tissue box.
Place small photo frames in the window sills and fill with pictures. Choose a theme for the photos. Possibilities include showcasing photos of the couple's past together, the couple's youth (place photos of the bride's childhood on the bride's side and the groom's childhood on the groom's side), or important guests who are not in attendance (deceased grandparents, parents or other guests who could not make it). Select simple photo frames, and sprinkle silver star-shaped confetti on the base of the window sill around the frames.
