Walking down the aisle is one of the most memorable moments of your wedding. The journey to your soon-to- be husband is one of the most breathtaking and mesmerizing moments a bride will experience on her big day. If you are searching for a unique way to make a first impression as you walk down the aisle, consider these charming ideas to decorate the ceremony aisle.
Create a Non-Traditional Runner
Traditional ceremony runners are often white fabric scattered with rose petals. Many brides will have the flower girl drop the petals as she walks down the aisle, but getting creative with the runner can provide a unique yet special element to your wedding décor. Elegant Moroccan rugs; carpets or runners with printed quotes; or runners with the wedding date. Any of these can give the ceremony aisle a creative element. Other ideas to create a unique runner is to create a stone pathway or use all rose petals without the white runner underneath to create a path to your beloved.
Let the Light In
Using flameless candles to illuminate the aisle is another unique and beautiful way to create a modern ceremony aisle. To add to the look, place the candles inside glass cylinders or mason jars that are full of rose petals, rocks or glass marbles. It is an excellent way to get creative with light while forgoing the actual flames that could become a fire hazard on your wedding day.
Bring Nature Indoors
If you can’t get married outdoors, bring the outdoors inside to complement your wedding décor. For brides who are looking for ideas to decorate with natural elements, greenery is a unique way to pull from an organic space. Ideas can range from adding potted plants, large pieces of greenery, vines or even tree branches to offer dynamic yet beautiful outdoor elements to the ceremony aisle. Whether you choose to go with real, natural elements or purchase from a craft store, adding greenery can be the perfect way to give nature’s beauty into your ceremony.
