Here Comes The Bride: The Importance of Aisle Decor

When most little girls dream of their wedding day, oftentimes the image that comes to mind is walking down the aisle. This is the place where couples typically see each other for the first time. All the guests stroll down it prior to the event to get to their seats. And post ceremony, the steps on this aisle are the first as a married couple. Kind of a big deal! Yet when it comes to the actual day, most aisles have little more than a few ribbons attached to the pews or chairs. Even if you’re going for a minimalistic look, don’t let the aisle be, well, boring.

Check out these stunning aisle arrangements out to compliment a fabulous aisle entrance and exit.

Candles are another way to dazzle the main walkway. Not sure about having a lighted candle so close to your wedding gown? Not a problem. Use beautiful lanterns that aren’t lit. They still look exquisite. (See last image)
