Top 5 Ways to Decorate Your Wedding Aisle
Posted on April 10, 2014 ·
Your walk down the aisle should be memorable and special. Here are 5 ways to style your aisle that will bring color and light to your wedding.
Get Creative with PetalsFlower petals are a classic, romantic decoration easily included throughout your event. Add a modern twist to your aisle by creating a pattern or monogram with petals in your color scheme. Ombre flowers and petals are another way to create a subtle, yet stunning aisle. Make a blanket of petals, an ombre checkerboard, or simply line the sides of your aisle with scattered petals. Use fall leaves, flower heads, fabric, or feathers to add a lively accent your venue.

Festoon Your ChairsIf you want to keep your aisle clear, decorating chairs is another way to add structured style to your ceremony. Tie sashes along the back of your chairs and embellish them with flowers or crystal accents. Fill mason jars with colorful bouquets, or use petal cones to accent the sides of your chairs.

Use Candles to Lighten upCandles are an elegant and affordable accent for any walkway. Use various sized pillar candles and plush floral arrangements for a dramatic look. Place floating candles in small cylinder vases for a clean, streamlined display. For an outdoor wedding, elevate candles on top of wood slices or logs and embellish them with moss.

Capture Attention with LanternsLanterns, like candles, add light and interest to your aisle. Dress up your mismatched lanterns with burlap and lace, then place them along your aisle for a shabby-chic or rustic wedding. Hang them from stanchions and fill them with flowers, or line the aisle of your beach wedding with wooden lanterns, shells, and colorful candles for a luminous evening.

Tell a StoryAdd a personal touch to your wedding by writing something meaningful on an aisle runner. Whether you want to embellish your runner with a large monogram, a favorite piece of literature or scripture, or a simple quote that is significant to you, this simple detail is one your guests will enjoy just as much as you do.
