Destination wedding set up on the beach

A destination wedding is all about bringing your dreams to life. So, what have you always imagined about the moment you walk down your aisle? Did you imagine a certain kind of music? A breeze in your hair? The smile on your groom’s face? 

There are so many things you may have imagined including the wedding decor. An important aspect of that is the wedding aisle decor that will accompany you as you walk down the aisle.

Why Decorate Your Aisle?

Nothing says, “Wow,” like a beautiful aisle. Decorating your aisle is the perfect way to start your destination wedding on a high note. Whether you are having a beach or garden ceremony, creating an atmosphere of romance and love can be achieved with creative design ideas. So, what kind of decor speaks to you?

1. Bistro Lights

Bistro lights are both elegant and affordable. If you are getting married around sunset or sunrise, a pop of light can really make a statement. Lights are simple—they draw attention without too much glam and sparkle. Bistro lights are a great option for the minimalist, simplistic bride’s wedding aisle decor.

2. Greenery, Greenery, Greenery

In the 2023 season, many brides are choosing to elevate their aisle with luscious green foliage. Whether that’s eucalyptus or other greenery, it makes for a beautiful view. Greenery typically goes with most wedding colors and doesn’t distract from other decorations or statement pieces.

3. Flower Power

Whether you’re a 70s girl or just a flower lover, flowers never go out of style as wedding aisle decor. Flowers make an excellent statement piece. You can choose to keep the theme of the bouquet or do more neutral flowers that go with the surroundings. Flowers speak volumes, and when done right can truly elevate the aisle.

4. Ribbons

Brown paper packages aren’t the only things that can be tied up with beautiful string. Ribbons are a trending, beautiful pick for your wedding aisle. They come in many different colors, textures, and sizes. The bolder the better. Ribbons are a great way to add texture without adding too much volume to your aisle.

5. Lanterns, a Symbol of Love

If you want a symbolic and special wedding, you may want to use lanterns in your wedding ceremony. Lanterns are a symbol of love and good fortune—the perfect way to start a marriage. Lanterns are also a simple yet beautiful way to add an element of light to your aisle.

6. Pampas Grass

Beachy weddings are one of the dreamiest kinds of weddings. Some think that having a beach wedding means no wedding aisle decor—but that’s just not true. One of the best ways to add something small yet grand to a beach wedding is by utilizing pampas grass. It’s a unique way to incorporate texture and beauty without detracting from the stunning scenery.

7. Vines and Garlands

Regardless of the scenery, vines and garlands make for a stunning wedding aisle. They come in different colors, shapes, and sizes which makes them perfect to pair with any theme or vibe. Vines and garlands add a touch of softness to your wedding decor and can easily be paired with other decorations, so they make for a fun decor idea.

8. A Romantic Petal-Paved Pathway

A different approach to flowers is to opt for a petal-paved pathway. Petals add an extra element of texture and romanticism to your aisle. You can choose whatever flower petals you like, or even mix and match colors. The best part? It’s biodegradable so you don’t have to worry about taking it down after the ceremony.

9. Floral Archways

If florals on their own aren’t enough—you can always raise the bar with elegant floral archways. Opting for floral archways to mark your wedding aisle is a more expensive choice, but one of the most elegant statement pieces you can have.

It’s in the Little Things

Whether you want a simple or elegant wedding, adding something to your wedding aisle decor will make your wedding an unforgettable experience.
