We are just obsessed lately with ceremony décor, and had a blast styling this aisle at the W Hotel DC  with the Team at  Edge Florals.

While we love unique ideas and a bit of whimsy, it is very important the style you desire incorporates the esthetics of the venue. Don’t go crazy placing tons of organic greenery indoors or get crystal candelabra crazy outdoors at your beach ceremony. We love this look from Elizabeth Anne Designs. 

We suggest about 8ft  across of aisle space to set décor and runner.
Aisle markers are a great way to add a bit more of your personal touch to the ceremony design.

Custom runners add a very special touch, however, make sure you rope off the area and have your guests grab their seats from the exterior area of the space to avoid trampling on your aisle décor. Your wedding coordinator will assist in directing the guests to the proper seating entrances.

Speaking of runners, don’t run away with the runner, make sure the runner you pick works well with your space– avoid disposable runners! They tend to blow in the wind, stick to the ground, get caught in your shoes, wrinkle, difficult to roll out, and let’s face it….they don’t have the best esthetic in any space. If you must have a runner, work with your florist or event designer on a runner that fits your style but is also is of good quality. We love these from Etsy.

Remember the ceremony is a short period of time, repurposing your ceremony décor to the escort card table or reception entrance area is a great way to extend the value of your selections.
