5 Hot Ideas for Your Ceremony Aisle Décor

Personalized Runner

Tell your story as a couple through your aisle runner. This amazing DIY, featured on Oh Lovely Day, started with photos of the couple as children and progressed through their six years of dating, highlighting special moments and memories along the way. Get step-by-step instructions to create your own!

The runner also provided a fun activity for guests prior to the ceremony—the couple placed a crossword puzzle within the ceremony program, with most answers to be found on the runner.

Spiral Aisle

Perfect for small, intimate weddings, a round ceremony setup gives each guest a front row seat for your walk down the aisle. It also creates a cozy feel throughout the ceremony as you're surrounded on all sides by your loved ones.

Swirls

Flower petal swirls are an ultra-romantic choice for your aisle décor. Just be sure to rope off the aisle and have your guests enter from the sides so that the gorgeous swirls stay put until your walk down the aisle!
