Aisle Decor | ABCs of Wedding Planning

We have a new feature - The ABC's of Wedding Planning.  We'll cycle through the alphabet touching on key wedding terms, trends & news.   Sit back and enjoy the first installmen. 

If you choose to have an outdoor wedding - the aisle decor can set the tone for the event.  From rustic elegance to simple but beautiful flowers - lining your aisle for an outdoor aisle is key to adding complementary visual interest to the natural setting.   A few favorites include the shepards hooks with mason jars (so gorgeous!) and simple flower pomanders.  Both add just enough to the decor without being distracting or overwhelming to the existing landscape.

A more traditional wedding setting is a church ceremony.   Cincinnati has some amazing cathedrals.   You might even decide to forgo any decor along the aisle because the cathedral itself is so amazing.   However, if you have a more modest church or would like to add a pop of color, a small gathering of flowers accented with ribbon (satin and chiffon below) is a perfect touch.

Cincinnati is home to quite a few other stunning venues including The Bell Event Centre and The Queen City Club (both pictured below).  My favorite accent for both of these venues are candles.  In the first photo our bride opted for large candelabras accented with hydrangea and then clusters of candles down the long aisle.  At the Queen City Club, we used candelabras to add drama and visual interest to an otherwise very simple room & aisle.  The resulting effect was romantic and intimate.

Consult your florist, event planner or designer.  Save your favorite photos on Pinterest, The Knot, Wedding Chicks or Style Me Pretty.  Create a perfect aisle to walk down as you prepare to marry the man of your dreams.
