1. Wedding Aisle Décor With Flower Petals
Get Romantic With Red Roses
It’s no surprise that this happy couple would want to linger in the middle of such a stunning floral wedding aisle. We love how crimson petals cover every inch of the ceremonial aisle for a look that’s both dreamy and romantic.
Keep it Fun With Purple Ombré
An ombré runner of purple petals adds a gorgeous pop of color to this minimalist wedding ceremony. We also adore how the parallel lines of petals shift with the wind, creating an ever-changing and unique wedding aisle.
Create a Criss-Cross Pattern
This wedding aisle, reminiscent of a childhood Hopscotch game, wows with its criss-cross design of bright pink blooms. We are also swooning over the golden entranceway decked in baby’s breath, purple hydrangeas, and deep-red roses.

Make it Monochromatic
Look, while we love pops of color, we also adore this monochromatic wedding ceremony with its petal-strewn aisle, lucite floral stands, and mod white seating. Even the cloudy, pearlescent sky seems to get (and make) the picture in hues of pure white.
photographer: Ether and Smith | planner: A Good Affair, Wedding & Event Production | florals: The Flower Boutique Inc. | venue: South Park Center | catering: Patina Catering | entertainment: Angelica Strings & Elevated Pulse Productions – California | videographer: Alec Nguyen | hair & makeup: Ting Makeup
Sit Back & Relax
Such a beautiful natural setting doesn’t need much to transform it into the perfect wedding venue. But pillowed seating and scattered rose petals make us want to linger here long after the ceremony ends.

2. Wedding Aisle Décor With Greenery
Add a Touch of Human Artistry
Left to their own devices, plants will lavishly take over any garden. These boxwood arrangements, however, remind us of the power of human artistry. We love how these sleek designs make for unique floral stands (and bring the beauty of the English countryside into this elegant venue).
Bring in the Outdoors
We love how this ceremonial space was transformed into an enchanted forest with a lush, grass-like wedding aisle and overhanging branches. The feeling of enchantment continued into the reception as guests found their table assignments on a tree suspended with 3-D, candle-lit paper lanterns.
photographer: Catherine Mead | planner: Bruce Russell | floral design: Zita Elze Flowers | venue: The Savoy in London | furniture: Great Hire Ltd | invitations: Grosvenor Stationery Company | tableware: Options | escort cards (lanterns): Cutture | cake: Peggy Porschen | production: Wise Productions
Go for Contrast
A grand ornate ballroom springs to life with the addition of fresh greenery. We love how this dramatic and historic setting becomes an unexpectedly perfect backdrop for bright foliage (and spring-like whimsy).
Keep it Simple
The perfect wedding is all in the details. We love how bouquets of simple greenery go hand-in-hand with rustic-wood seating — while also allowing the tiled aisle and exposed-brick backdrop to direct our attention.
Take a Stroll
We absolutely adore how this wedding aisle evokes a Parisian, tree-lined promenade — the perfect place to linger on a summer day, or any season.

Get Creative With Potted Plants
Rancho Santa Fe, CA
It’s true, green reigns supreme at this enchanting outdoor wedding. We love how, in addition to the natural foliage, potted plants bring a fresh vibrancy to the ceremonial aisle. Sometimes, the best secret gardens are in plain sight.

3. Candlelit Wedding-Aisle Decoration Ideas
Heighten the Drama With a Southern Gothic Vibe
You see, we love how towering candelabras rise up to meet overarching Spanish Moss. The effect is both dramatic and romantic — not to mention, a scene that’s straight out of a Southern-Gothic novel. We also love how woven carpets cover the wedding aisle, adding another unique element to this one-of-a-kind ceremony.
Let the Lanterns Be Your Guide
Jensen Beach, FL
This stunning wedding paired tropical glamour with minimalist sophistication. We adore how metallic lanterns graced this all-white wedding aisle. We also appreciate how the metallic motif was carried over to the wedding reception. Guests enjoyed stylish tablescapes with copper cutlery, decorative charger plates, and luxe linen.

Add Glitter With Gold Elements
“All that glitters is not gold” — or so the saying goes. But the gold elements from this glam wedding are in full glittery effect. We love how modern, abstract chandeliers pair with vintage candle pillars for a look that’s both timeless and elegant.
Keep it Clear as Crystal
Mirrored stands reflect twinkling candlelight, while a crystal-beaded chuppah adds additional sparkle. We also love how the skylight is beautifully reflected onto an all-white aisle runner.
Follow the Bend
Life is full of twists and turns — and one of our favorite wedding aisle decoration ideas follows that logic. We love how this unique, candlelit wedding aisle unexpectedly bends to the right before reaching the main stage — while also adding a new dimension to this raw, industrial space.

Dazzle With a Winter Wonderland
White orchids, shimmering drapery, and crystal beading evoke a pristine winter snowfall. We also adore how the candle-lit wedding aisle brings warmth (and additional beauty) to this sophisticated backdrop.
Create Elegant Interludes
We love how clusters of candlelight (surrounded by a scattering of red-rose petals) are interspersed along this elegantly-tiled wedding aisle. Gold-mirrored stands and brilliant sconces create an additional (and much appreciated) glow.

Go for Gobo Glamour
Gobo lighting can transform your wedding aisle into a wonderland of shapes and shadows. We love how the ethereal drapery at this glamorous ceremony mimics the curves and delicacy of the eye-catching wedding aisle.

Take a Walk in the Forest
Foliage light projections brings the beauty of the forest to this rustic winery. While we’re sure the happy couple only had eyes for each other, we’d certainly understand if they stopped to admire the grandeur at their feet.
photographer: Emily Leis Photography | planner: Contagious Events, LLC | florals: Flou(‑e)r Specialty Floral Events | venue: Boston Winery | lighting: DesignLight | calligrapher: Yennygrams | rentals: Rentals Unlimited
Keep it Interesting With Whimsical Lighting
We could spend hours looking at this wedding aisle, trying to name the various shapes and figures. From butterflies and horseshoes to stars and punctuation marks, there’s something for everyone on this whimsical walk down the aisle.
Stop & Smell the Roses
We can’t think of a more romantic walk than a walk down the aisle and roses play a starring role in many of our favorite wedding aisle decoration ideas. So of course, this romantic, rose-patterned wedding aisle has our attention.

photographer: Kent Drake Photography | planner: A Perfect Event | florals & design: Anthony Gowder Designs | venue: Cafe Brauer at Lincoln Park Zoo | caterer: Entertaining Company | entertainment: TVK Orchestra
Indulge Your Inner Artist
Art museums are bound to be chic. But this black-and-white-striped wedding aisle only improves the stylish setting. We also love how lucite stands create the illusion of free-floating foliage. Artistic, indeed.
Make it a Monogram
A monogrammed wedding aisle with mirrored-gold details evokes luxury — with or without the oceanfront setting. We especially adore the addition of cold fireworks at the end of the heartfelt ceremony.
Add Charm With a Garden Path
In case you may be wondering, a picturesque gazebo and “stone garden path” are a match made in heaven. We also appreciate how creative lighting transformed the walls of this tented space into a lush forest.

We love how this mirrored wedding aisle creates a second (and fourth) floral heart. It (almost) goes without saying: two hearts are better than one. One of the best wedding aisle decoration ideas is to double your décor with reflective elements.

Add Dimension with an Elevated Stage
Look: We love how dramatic steps and an elevated stage add depth and dimension to the mirrored wedding aisle. Besides, a couple this beautiful deserves to be seen twice over.
Make Memories With Metallic Foil
This gorgeous venue space (complete with floor-to-ceiling windows) was transformed into a winter wonderland for this happy couple. An aisle runner of silver foil beautifully reflected the surrounding candlelight — while also leading to a picturesque backdrop of shimmering evergreen trees.
Impress Guests with a Magical Mirage
This mirrored wedding aisle creates a stunning optical illusion of water in the distance — along with a second chance to admire the exquisite white wedding arch.
