Wedding Aisle Decorations
by Giorgina Devereaux
Wedding aisle decorations will add a fairytale-like feel to your wedding. Imagine the pews all dressed up in an assortment of tulle, clear lights, and an array of soft and delicate flowers cascading down. It adds an enormous amount of beauty when combined with materials, such as ribbons, sheer or silk fabrics, and other creative touches that include raffia ribbon topped off with a crystal heart charm.
If flowers are not in your budget, you can still beautifully decorate the aisle with faux flowers set inside a burlap cone or a mason jar. Even if your wedding is outdoors, you can make the wedding aisle look dramatic. Accent the aisle by hanging colorful pomander balls on a Shepherd’s hook, along with tulle draped over it in a swag-like pattern to enhance the look as well as to conceal the hook. For a varied effect, consider alternating between different colors. This will make a magical impact on guests.
For an evening outdoor wedding, you can decorate the end of each row with a candle lantern, along with a lovely floral arrangement set inside a clear vase. You may wish to have a white canopy or ceremony arch positioned at the end, along with two floral arrangements flanking each side. This creates a fabulous touch. Take advantage of the outdoor scenery to create a stunning design that flows seamlessly. Depending on your theme, you can opt for wedding aisle decorations that feature a beach or autumn theme, for instance. The combination of fall colors looks romantic.
Exchanging vows amidst this splendor is something that is only imagined in dreams. But dreams do come true, and when you walk down the aisle, you will feel like an enchanted princess.

Consider tying a piece of green ribbon around each jar and securing it to the chair closest to the aisle.
Burlap and Paper Cones: This enhances the floral arrangement and makes quite a statement. Burlap material can be used for the cone or if you prefer, you may make paper cones using colorful designer paper.
Candle Lanterns: Lighting is a major component for any formal event. Candle lanterns will provide subtle lighting while giving the celebration a beautiful glow. Place a candle lantern at the end of each row (closest to the aisle).
Crepe Paper Bouquets and Wreaths: Adorn the pews with crepe paper bouquets or wreaths. You can have gorgeous wreaths made consisting of whispery petals and gold centers. The crepe paper flowers appear as if they are in full bloom. One final detail is to attach a decorative program pocket featuring a damask pattern, for instance.
Faux or Real Rose Petals: Nothing says it more beautifully than lining the aisle with rose petals in different colors. You may wish to consider having your florist create a unique design using rose petals in a swirls and hearts pattern. This creates a simple and elegant look.
Mason Jars, Raffia Ribbon, and Wedding Charms: It’s amazing how a simple mason jar can be incorporated into a wedding. Simply create a floral cluster consisting of hydrangeas, dahlias, and roses and place them inside a mason jar. To further enhance the beauty, cover the top of the jar that is exposed metal with a piece of silk fabric followed by a piece of tulle on top. Then wrap a piece of raffia ribbon along with a wedding charm around the jar and tie tightly around each pew.
Ostrich Feathers: A pretty dramatic way to accent the wedding aisle is by using ostrich feathers of varying heights. Place them inside a tall vase, along with silk orchids. Display each vase next to other aisle decor.

Commonly used flowers for pomander balls are gerbera daisies, hydrangeas, roses, sunflowers, cymbidium orchids, and carnations.
Tulle: Tulle is a material that is commonly used in weddings. It is available in an assortment of colors and is a very flexible material that is sure to give your wedding a magical and delicate feel. You may swag white tulle between the pews and secure it using large white tulle bows that feature long tails.
Vases: Vases are very important in weddings because they are used for creating artful displays consisting of flowers, dried botanicals, and feathers. The type of vase you opt for can make a striking impact on your wedding. You may choose a hurricane, trumpet, rectangular, or square vase made of recycled glass. They are available in different colors, with the clear vase being the most commonly used one in weddings.
Some vase ideas include the following:
• Using a hurricane vase, fill it with water, along with a floating candle and rose petals. Flank the aisle from beginning to end to add drama.
• A trumpet vase makes a stunning display when filled with flowers, such as hydrangeas mixed with red flowers and a pillar candle. You may also fill a trumpet vase with a vase filler and other materials, such as seashells. Dot both sides of the aisle with these vases to complement the setting.
• Another idea is to place floral arrangements in clear square vases and position a spotlight pointed upward to highlight the beautiful arrangement. A nice floral arrangement to consider is an assortment of yellow flowers, white flowers, and baby’s breath.
