TO DO: Tuesday Wedding Aisle Decor
So many times Brides spend a ton of time (and lots of MONEY) on decorating their receptions. We then get to the ceremony (arguably what the entire day was created for!) and there is little to no decor. A well place flower arrangement at the front, some programs at the back and call it a day. You know, I think your ceremony should be just as magical as the rest of the day… it is, after all, what the ENTIRE wedding is about! MARRYING the man of your dreams!
I understand not wanting to spend an arm and a leg on decorating your aisle (wherever that might be) but a bit of well placed decor and a few pops of color can go a long way!
Take Ryan and Rachel, for example. They were married at Talon Winery, here in Lexington. Talon is a BEAUTIFUL location, yes, but they chose to use a few pops of color in the form of dangling flowers under the gazeebo and a few tucked into the shrubs. They also hung old glass jars with bunches of daisies from shepherd’s hooks and lined the aisle with them along with piles of yellow and white flower petals.
But their wedding was outside… Mine is in a church! No problem… you CAN be creative with pews! I promise One of our brides from last year, Kelsey, decorated her aisle with bunches of Kentucky wildflowers in baskets that hung from the pews. It was soft, subtle, homey and made a big impact!
Or you can do something that requires NO florals at ALL. Here are some simple ideas I found on Pinterest:
From : atwestend.com but could easily be hand crafted for very little money!
Or instead of expensive chair scarves and covers, order large rolls of ribbon in a single or multi colors and use them to spruce up the chairs at the ceremony / reception.

Or maybe a cute vintage sign denoting the spots for the parents to sit at the wedding like these we found on Etsy:
However you choose to do it, DO put some thought into the aisle you will walk down toward your new life. It will be the last things you see as a “single” lady and those moments should be just as beautiful as the rest of the wedding day!
