Decorating an outdoor wedding aisle doesn’t need to mean some turf with silk rose petals scattered on top. Fresh ideas to decorate your aisle include kissing balls, hanging baskets, long palm fronds, paper pin wheels, lanterns, personalised aisle runners and parasols placed just so. Here are some hot new ideas on decorating outdoor wedding aisles to help inspire your own wedding aisle style.Kissing BallsThe kissing ball is a gorgeous aisle decoration and can be used throughout your wedding day to decorate your aisle, reception, ‘getaway car’ and table settings.
They are best made by a florist with an experienced hand, but you can give them a try yourself using a foam florists’ ball, wiring each flower head and carefully piercing the foam with the wire from each blossom to create a ball of flowers. Hang with a ribbon wired into place, and you can also have a decorative ribbon at the base of each ball to set off the effect. Hang along your aisle either from the chair tops or, as in our example, from decorative posts which can be found at hardware stores and discount department stores. Paper ParasolsGlorious parasols solve so many decorating dilemmas on your wedding day! Here’s a simple idea. Take hot pink parasols and place them down the aisle with complementary rose petals.
The effect is contemporary, easy and fun for a summer or beach wedding aisle. Parasols are cost effective and practical, too, as your guests can pick them up and use them to protect their skin from the burning sun.Palm Fronds and Other Tall DecorationsBeach aisles are great fun, but require some planning as you are probably creating an aisle from scratch. Take a natural hessian aisle runner and border it with some natural coral to create an aisle. From there, a florist can create some stands of potted tropical flowers accessorised with organza ribbon, which ties in perfectly with the chair detailing.
Finally, place natural palm fronds in the centre of the pots, left to hang to the side in the breeze, which almost creates a feather effect. Feather PlumesUse your imagination to create a fun aisle style! Use peacock feathers tied to the aisle side chairs in a garden wedding setting that, or create a similar look with palm fronds, long lilies, or long-handled pin wheels, which you can easily make yourself in papers from your wedding stationery suite.Paper LanternsHow’s this for budget chic? Use bright paper ball lanterns with contrasting ribbon to decorate this wedding aisle. These are stunning aisle decorations for a casual affair.
