Whether it be simple mason jars with flowers or small signs to elaborate wedding arrangements, personalized wedding runners, or romantic wedding arches, picking the right wedding aisle decor can add to the overwhelming stress of planning your wedding, especially with all of the options and styles available today. But it doesn’t have to be if you follow a few simple wedding planning rules and ideas we found and have learned over the years.
Keeping everything simple will ensure your wedding aisle decor will look timeless and classy. Staying within your general color palette or theme is the perfect and easiest way to start imagining your wedding aisle. Whether you are looking at vintage, rustic, traditional, or gatsby, starting with your colors or theme will help your vision evolve.
We have seen many different types and variations of wedding aisle decor at Windows on the Lake. We have also looked at other trending wedding decor ideas to help provide you with ideas to plan the perfect outdoor wedding ceremony.
The most popular and classic wedding aisle decor is flowers. Who doesn’t like flowers at a wedding, and there are so many to choose from. But sometimes simple is breathtaking. Using just simple baby breath and greenery can make for a stunning wedding aisle look. But so can hanging flowers from the aisle chairs or even shepherds hooks in mason jars, sheet music, or by ribbon are great ways to dress up your wedding aisle. They are simple and can make any aisle stunning. You can also take a piece of tile and place a vase of flowers beside each chair. Some couples have even opted for just strands of greenery in different hues tied by ribbon or even burlap.
Another great and romantic wedding aisle idea is using lanterns. You can hang your lanterns from shepherds hooks, put them on the ground next to each chair, or you can put pedestals at the beginning of the aisle and place different size lanterns on each one. You can also look into potted plants or even trees. Some nurseries rent plants for just these occasions! We have provided a short video below of some great ideas we have found that we hope are helpful!
But wait! There is a focal point to consider. The wedding arch! But now that you have picked the look and feel of your wedding aisle, you can use it to transform your wedding arch. If using springs of greenery, add some additional pieces or flowers. A great way is to use the colors of your wedding here with some classic white. Or go with all babies breathe!
If you are having a candle lighting ceremony or anything that requires a table, you can use a small cocktail table draped with white clothe or for the rustic look, go for a barrel.
There are just a couple of things to consider when picking wedding aisle decor. If using flowers, remember to choose flowers that are not overwhelmingly fragrant. We all love the smell of flowers, but with that many, it can be overwhelming. So talk with your florist. They have great ideas! Also, remember if using lighted lanterns to go with flameless candles.
So decorating your wedding aisle doesn’t have to be stressful… it can be a great deal of fun that will add to the excitement of planning your wedding!
