18 Pretty Ways To Decorate Your Ceremony Aisle
As elaborate as a carefully manicured floral arrangement and as simple as a mason jar with a few stems, aisle markers add serious style to your ceremony. Flower markers not only help to define the space (perfect if you're working without traditional pews), they also add a fresh ambiance to the room. When it comes to adding wedding aisle decor to your ceremony setup, it can be as simple as creating a hanging arrangement for the chairs with herbs for a subtle fragrance or filling a paper cone with petals or confetti for a practical way to share your exit toss materials.
Wedding Aisle Decor Tip: Take the wedding aisle arrangements from the ceremony to your reception to double dip on your flower and decor budget!
