Making or accentuating an aisle for outdoor weddings

By on Jun 9th

I saw this photo [pictured below] and it inspired me to try and find more amazing ways that outdoor wedding spaces have created or defined their wedding aisles. Please to enjoy these clever ways to create an aisle in an outdoor setting…

This fabulous outdoor location in Mashamoquet State Park, CT, was embellished by this twig and branch aisle created by the groom.

For this aisle they got some potted annuals and cheap baskets at a home garden center. As Ariel said, "So simple… so effective. I love how just a few little details can totally make a space feel sacred."

The 'ol flower petal aisle — always a classic, always freaking beautiful.

Making the aisle

Their wedding commissioner's husband came up with the idea to make an aisle out of fireweed. What a statement it makes even though it's amazingly simple.

My friends, Jack and Nami, created an aisle for their forest wedding out of boxes of wheat grass. The groom constructed the boxes and the bride used an old connection from her Jamba Juice days to get the wheat grass! They also added daisies for more pizzaz.

aisleYou could always use an actual aisle runner. It makes quite the dramatic statement at an outdoor wedding, don't ya think?

walking towards the groomHave your guests line up to create the aisle. It's hard to tell in this shot from my wedding but all the guests lined up on either side of me and my dad, it was pretty cool.

Processional with the bagpiper Having a fall wedding? Line your aisle with leaves and pumpkins, or maybe just a lot of baby pumpkins and then re-use them as favors?

Casey and Colin got married in the Temescal Gateway Park in California and they used brightly colored paper pom poms to accentuate their aisle.

Oh my gawd, how much do I love the big bright non-matching parasols? A lot. This photo from Alda and Bob's Maui wedding just made my heart explode with happy.

Pinwheels

Thanks to trphywifekmeyer for adding this to the OBB Flickr pool.

I love the idea of using colorful pinwheels all the way down the aisle.

I know there are TONS of great ideas out there, so you know what to do… leave 'em in the comments section!
