Wedding aisle decor to make an entrance to remember on your big day
The walk down the aisle is one of the most important and iconic moments of your big day. It’s the moment where family, friends & fiancé get to see the stunning bride and long-awaited reveal of the wedding dress for the first time, however it’s also the first time they’ll see any wedding décor which gives them a glimpse of what to expect from the rest of the celebration.
The wedding aisle is a significant focal point, it’s where all eyes will be looking when you walk down the aisle and will be in the background of wedding photographs. It’s an opportunity to showcase your personality, style and wedding theme and you can be as subtle or transformative as you want! Make a grand entrance and bold statement or add small accents and quaint little touches. In some cases, where you walk down the aisle is also the same location as where you might have your head table or DJ positioned for the evening reception, so making this area a magnificent key feature is a great way to utlise your budget.
We have a variety of wedding aisle décor options for you to choose from, mix ideas together or focus on one design concept.
Do you envision your wedding with plenty of florals and greenery? Bring the outside in by framing your aisle with our beautiful, lush range of artificial trees. They’re rustic, impactful, and elegant. Adding large trees into a smaller space immediately adds an intimacy to the ceremony space. If you have a venue with a vast amount of space & ceiling height they can draw in an open space and create boundaries or a focal point also softening the space. Choose ficus trees for a classic botanical wedding style, autumn trees for your fall wedding, blossom trees for a romantic, fairy tale wedding, lemon, olive, bougainvillea or orange trees for a Mediterranean or Greek inspired wedding, and frozen trees for a winter wedding. We have a mixture of different sizes for you to choose from which we recommend using together to create depth and dimension along the aisle.
LANTERNS & CANDLES
We love the idea of placing a lantern or glass vase on either side of the aisle, at every line of seating. Fill with LED or wax pillar candles for a warming glow as you say your vows. If you choose to have cylinder glass vases, we recommend hiring a collection of different sizes for a super pretty effect. They are the perfect way to style your wedding aisle and create a romantic ambience. Simple but extremely effective. Our large chrome and brass lanterns will elegantly line your wedding aisle. Add fairy lights, flowers & foliage for that finishing touch.
If you’re looking to add some serious “wow” factor to your ceremony, hang gorgeous draping above the aisle and ceremony seating. Adding a sheer fabric like voile will make your setting feel more luxurious and upscale. Choose classic white drapes or a colour to match your wedding colour palette. Wedding ceiling drapes can be hung in a radial or linear formation depending on the look you want to achieve.
If your venue is a blank canvas, you could even do a full venue drape with pleated or rippled wall drapes. Our freestanding pipe and drape equipment makes it easy to hang wall drapes in any venue.
Enhance your wedding aisle with a beautifully simple warm-white fairy light canopy hung above the aisle. They create a stunning effect in person and create an impressive backdrop for wedding photographs. Fairy light canopies suit rustic and traditional venues, as well as modern and contemporary venue spaces, so whatever style you have gone for, you know it’ll look amazing. You can choose from a variation of designs and configurations; popular options include a radial shape where the strings span out from a central point in the ceiling or swagging in a linear line from one point to another across the length of the room.
Make your entrance to the altar even more memorable by walking down the aisle on an elegant wedding runner, the perfect touch to your ceremony. Our soft luxury white carpet runner is the most popular for weddings, however other colours are available to hire. An aisle runner creates a more defined walkway and will complete your wedding aisle décor. If you want something a little different, why not choose a white LED starlight aisle runner, made up from our LED starlight dancefloor pieces.
