Wedding Ceremony: Luxurious Ways to Decorate your Aisle

Inspiration, Wedding Planning

Your wedding ceremony is arguably the most important aspect of your wedding day: it’s the first moment you’ll see each other as you make your way down the aisle, so understandably you want to make it perfect.

The aisle itself is a huge part of the ceremony, and there are lots of swoon-worthy ways to style it. Whether you are planning an indoor ceremony in an elegant manor house or an outdoor ceremony at a dreamy faraway destination, it will act as the backdrop to your big day. We’re spoiling you with some of our favourite inspiration, showcasing the different ways you can add a dash of luxury to your wedding aisle…

Candles are one the simplest yet most beautiful ways to decorate your aisle. Effortlessly elegant, they will help to add a hint of ambience to your wedding ceremony. You could line the aisle with candlesticks, candelabra, pillar candles or metallic lanterns or even tea lights. You can mix foliage, rose petals and blooms into the candles for an extra special touch. Petals are a wonderful choice for the classically romantic couple. You can create a blanket of petals or simply scatter them along the edge of your aisle.

Sometimes, you don’t need to do too much in terms of décor if your venue already does the talking. For instance, if your venue boasts a magnificent chandelier above the aisle, you don’t want to detract from it! Instead embrace it by keeping the rest of your décor and details very simple and understated.

You may have spotted our recent blog post where we talked all about how floral design can add luxury to your wedding day. Dramatic urns or metallic vases that are overflowing with bold, beautiful blooms will make a statement at the entrance of your aisle. Discuss your visions with your florist, they are guaranteed to create a fabulous floral design for your wedding ceremony.

You could also line the aisle with an abundance of foliage and wild greenery for a wedding style that is modern and minimalist look that still looks elegant. Create a stunning ceremony space by saying your vows under a foliage-based archway. You’ll be able to capture lots of Instagramable images of your special day.

Your entrance to your wedding ceremony will be one of the most photographed moments of your special day, so you want to make sure you can look back at the images and still be smitten with the styling. Your décor can be as understated or lavish as you want, you just need to ensure the design works with your wedding venue and that it reflects you both as a couple. It also needs to tie in with the rest of your big day décor.
