As you delve further into planning your wedding, you’ll begin thinking about all the details to include – peonies or roses, round or rectangular tables, cake or dessert (or both!). It’s important not to forget your ceremony space when you’re planning the décor for your wedding day. Your Pinterest board might be full of images of statement floral pieces, a sea of candles or simplicity in itself with no décor at all if the space is very ornate. It’s easy to overlook how you’re going to dress the space which is where the most important part of your day will take place – the exchanging of vows in front of friends and family.
There are so many ideas for ways to decorate the ceremony space so it carries the same aesthetic as the rest of your wedding, you might want to keep it simple with some large floral arrangements in the church, an aisle runner or pew posies. If your ceremony is in a blank canvas space you might decide to have a floral arch or statement floral pieces set around the space. Your walk down the aisle will be one of the most important moments of your life, to make that moment even more unforgettable, here is some inspiration for how to decorate the space you’ll say ‘I do’.
Monogrammed Aisle Runner
For a church ceremony, a monogrammed aisle runner paired with white lanterns and floral arrangements lining the pews adds something modern to a traditional space.
Foliage, roses and candles make a stunning display on this staircase and could be easily adapted as a similar idea to line any walkway.
Floral Ceremony Backdrop
I love this slightly off-centre draped fabric, paired with masses of lush florals. Not just for an outdoor ceremony either, it would be gorgeous in a conservatory style ceremony space too.
Simple Chair Décor
Bunches of eucalyptus line the aisle and neutral toned flowers around the rest of the room, beautiful and simple for an ornate space.
Wedding Welcome Sign
The minimalism of the sign, combined with the greenery borders gives a modern, elegant feel. Perfect not only for your ceremony space, but versatile enough to move through to your reception space.
Greenery Swathes and Candles
Swathes of greenery interlaced with candles, curved along the edge of the chairs creates a simple yet effective aisle. Keeping the chairs simple, this look is versatile for any ceremony space.
