Today we look at how to ‘Style That Aisle’ with wedding ceremony inspiration by Kate Cullen of Lavender & Linen. Over to Kate…
Giving thought to the décor for the aisle at the wedding ceremony itself is often something that gets overlooked in the bid to create the perfect reception. This is a bit of a shame considering it’s the bit that counts – the actual getting married part!
So here are a few ideas that can really add that romantic touch and remind you what the day is all about. The added bonus being that many of these ideas can easily be transferred to your reception venue afterwards so you get double the enjoyment for your money. Just make sure you pick a member of the wedding party (or your wedding planner/stylist) that you trust to move it all to the prearranged locations at your reception after the ceremony is over.
Style That Aisle
The pew ends act as perfect locations for a touch of floral prettiness and, if allowed, add some lighting in the form of hurricane lamps, tealights and votives. A sprinkle of petals is always a lovely touch, and don’t worry too much about them being walked on as this will bring out the scent even more – especially rose petals or lavender.
Small trees or herbs lining an aisle always look wonderful, but really anything goes – crates, boxes, jam jars and tree stumps can be used, as well as the more traditional floral elements. Shepherd’s crooks are a great way of adding height too.
If flowers aren’t your thing then consider paper décor like pompoms, pin wheels, pictures of loved ones, wicker hearts, colourful ribbons – whatever fits with the rest of the styling of your day.
I hope this has helped give you a few ideas, and a little reminder to think about this part of the day – it may be short but it’s certainly going to be one of the most memorable hours for you.
