Traditional pew decorations have an appealing stateliness about them, but that doesn't mean you can't loosen things up a bit. One idea drawn from the wedding of Donald Trump and Melania Knauss: Let garlands spill onto the floor, which gives a look of abundance but doesn't compete with the bride for guests' attention. Says N.Y.C. event designer Preston Bailey, who made these arrangements by sewing together heads of hardy dendrobium orchids, "It was important not to create anything that distracted from Melania or her dress. The garlands were low enough to enhance the décor without overwhelming it."
