Things to Consider When Choosing Your Aisle Decor

You may have seen the perfect wedding aisle decor idea on Pinterest or at a friend’s wedding, but will it work for your celebration? As you start to think about your wedding aisle decor, there are some factors to consider that will help you narrow down your options.

Some of these wedding aisle decor factors include:

Your Wedding Venue

Your venue can have the largest impact on the overall feeling of your ceremony. Is it indoors or outdoors? Does it have a traditional or modern feel? While you can definitely get creative, it’s important to consider the environment as you plan your decor. For example, rustic pampas could elevate your classic church wedding. On the other hand,deep Red & Burgundy roses might be better suited for  your modern city celebration.

Your Wedding Season

While you don’t have to match your wedding aisle decor to the season perfectly, it can act as a good starting point. Fresh pastels or vibrant colors may work better for your spring or summer wedding, while tones of burnt orange or deep burgundy may celebrate the richness of the season at a  fall or winter celebration.

Wedding style

Consider the vibe you’re going for, and use that as a starting point as you choose your wedding aisle decor.

Color palette

One of the earliest steps in planning your wedding decor will be deciding on a color palette, and this will then be used to plan the aisle decorations.
