Every bride dreams of the day when she will walk down the aisle. But many are looking for something other than the traditional tulle and flowers. We have pulled together some of the most beautiful and uniquely decorated aisles to help inspire your walk on your big day!
We love the drama that this swirl design adds to the aisle. This lovely pattern is created using rose petals, and can be done in either one solid color, or multicolored. If you are looking for something a little more casual, these paper hearts lining the aisle add a unique charm. This aisle sets a fun and casual tone for the rest of the day.
We love the touch of blue used in these aisles. These lovely bouquets of hydrangeas and roses hung from shepherds hooks and lined the aisle of our very own bride, Susan Browning Steiglitz, at her Santa Fe River Ranch wedding. The colors of these arrangements were stunning, and created an elegant feel to this outdoor wedding.
Not every aisle runner has to be white. The soft white rose petals are the perfect finishing touch to this simple yet beautiful aisle.
Colorful aisles are so much fun! The swirl patterns around the edge of the aisle and the bright orange runner look great against the clean white in the rest of the room. The pink columns with flower arrangements add detail to the design of the aisle and match the columns on the altar. If you are looking for a more non-traditional aisle concept, try this unique spiral arrangement for your chairs. This design allows all of your guests to get a great view of you as you make your way to your I-do’s. Accenting the entrance with bright floral arrangements and scattering rose petals along the edge adds just enough color while keeping the aisle clean and contemporary.
If your ceremony will be held in a church, don’t worry, there are many ways to beautify your walk down the aisle too, as seen in these photos of past couple’s ceremonies. Consider white flower arrangements placed on tall pedestals lining the aisle. The crystals hanging from the flowers added sparkle to this aisle at Mt. Carmel Baptist Church. Another option is to add simple bows to the end of each pew at St. Augustine Catholic Church. The red petals and the pink ribbon created a beautiful romantic feel. If you are looking for something more causal, you can line your aisle with flower pomanders hanging from shepherds hooks. These can be done in many colors, accented with colored pearl heard pins.
Arranging your ceremony chairs in a circle around your chuppah or altar allows a 360 degree view for you and your guests. This arrangement works great for large square or irregularly shaped areas, and creates a beautiful symmetry for the space. If you are looking for something elegant for your aisle, this arrangement of stone columns and soft pink flowers would look lovely. The sheer fabric draped between columns softens the stone and gives a lovely airy feel to the aisle.
For a more rustic outdoor wedding, there are still plenty of unique ways to dress up your aisle. We love this burlap runner for an outdoor wedding. The small flower arrangements on the edges of the chairs lining the aisle visually softens the rough fabric. If you are having your ceremony under the open sky, consider a mirrored aisle. This design is created using individual plexi-glass mirrors and then lining the aisle with bright red ribbon or fabric. The reflection of the sky above looks amazing in photographs.
Finally, these last two aisles will forever be classic and elegant. This first aisle is covered completely with multi colored rose petals. Accented by floating candles and rose petals in large hurricane vases, this aisle winds its way to the ceremony, allowing the bride and her father to share a sweet and intimate walk together. The long flowing ribbons on this next aisle create a romantic feel as they flutter in the breeze. The small arrangements on the corner of the chairs add a bit of simple elegance to this lovely aisle.
