31 Wedding Aisle Decor Ideas We’re Obsessed With

Walking down the aisle is one of the most iconic parts of your wedding. Here at GWS, we’re suckers for a show-stopping aisle. From boho wedding aisle decor ideas to retro disco balls to string lights that give us Italian countryside vibes, we’ve featured it all (and we’ve seen ALL the trends). So naturally, we had to round up the best of the best: our favorite wedding aisle decor ideas so good they’ll easily be the talk of the whole wedding season.

For those of you opting out of a first look and seeing each other for the first time as you walk down the aisle, incorporating gorgeous wedding aisle decor ideas is even more essential. After all, you NEED your aisle to perfectly frame you and set the mood as you make your way down to your beloved.

Plus, the aisle is one of the first things your guests will see. It totally sets the tone for the rest of your wedding! Whether you design things yourself, rent, or buy, these wedding aisle decor ideas are perfect to inspire and help you elevate your wedding.

Our favorite wedding aisle decor ideas are perfect for any venue, color palette and exactly what you need while planning your perfect wedding. But before we share our favorite inspo, let’s cover a few essential aisle decor FAQs.  

Should You Buy or Rent Your Wedding Aisle Decor?

Both have their perks! Buying your wedding aisle decor most likely means you’re having it custom made, which we love! There’s nothing quite like having your wedding aisle decor be truly unique and inspired by your distinct style and vision for your day.

We also love the option of buying your wedding aisle decor if you plan on incorporating elements in your design that you know you’ll use well after the wedding day? Those gorgeous lanterns lining the aisle? Those would be absolutely perfect when arranged together in the backyard of your new home after you say “I do”.

The downside of buying your wedding aisle decor? Custom designs can often get expensive. And if you opt to design your aisle on your own to save on cost, it can be both challenging and time consuming.

Renting your wedding aisle decor is oftentimes the more common choice, because there are wedding vendors that specialize in this. This tends to be the more cost effective option, and you won’t have to worry about taking it down and home after your wedding. However, renting can sometimes mean that you have the same decor as another couple (and it’s possible the wedding aisle decor you use is a bit more worn down from multiple uses).

Overall, every couple is different and you should do what makes the most sense for your budget, timeline and the vision you have for your wedding aisle decor.

How Much Should You Expect to Spend on Wedding Aisle Decor?

Depending on if you plan to buy or rent (and whether you plan to hire help to put together your wedding aisle decor), you can expect to spend anywhere from $300 – $3,000. This is typically how much couples spend, but of course it could be less or more.

If you are looking for wedding aisle decor that is budget-friendly, opt for a simple and more minimalist aisle design. Or gather friends and family to help with the setup and breakdown on the big day.

If you are looking for a unique wedding aisle look, be prepared to spend more for a custom wedding design where professionals can expertly arrange your decor on your behalf.

Outdoor Wedding Aisle Decor Ideas

Outdoor weddings are romantic and ethereal, and your outdoor wedding aisle decor should be too! We love the use of florals, greenery, and rustic boho decor details to highlight your outdoor wedding aisle. There’s nothing quite like using nature to complement the great outdoors.

And because outdoor weddings tend to take place in less restricted spaces, you have a lot more freedom with the length and shape of your aisle, along with the scale of the decor you use (hello, extra large florals…SWOON).

Our favorite outdoor wedding aisle decor ideas manage to perfect the balancing act of both blending in with the natural surroundings of the venue while also being show-stoppingly stunning.

It’s a wedding aesthetic that never goes out of style. We’re suckers for an enchanted forest woodland vibe, and this one has us seriously swooning.

The best outdoor wedding aisle decor ideas are the ones that feel like a natural fit in their environment, and those stunning neutral toned florals arranged on a curving pathway to the altar do exactly that.

Paired with those rustic wooden chairs? Hello forest princess vibes. We’re pretty sure this aisle came straight out of a fairytale.

Take the enchanting vibes to the next level by giving your guests these dried blooms to toss during your recessional. Talk about a fairytale ending.

We cannot imagine a cuter way to decorate your outdoor wedding aisle than with potted plants you can take home for your own garden (bonus points for putting them in pretty rustic planters). Add different levels, colors, and textures for a varied look that feels lush and elevated.

When it comes to romantic outdoor wedding aisle decor ideas, it’s this one that haunts our dreams (in the best way). We love the way the baby’s breath florals create a cloud-like curving pathway to the altar. Pretty sure we’re in heaven!

And an added bonus? Baby’s breath are known to be one of the most budget-friendly flowers, making them a perfect option for anyone looking to keep wedding aisle decor costs down.

Wedding aisle decor ideas that bring the indoors outside? We love to see it.

We love the symbolism of including a door at the start of your aisle. You’re entering a whole new life adventure when you walk through those doors.

And could there be anything prettier than opting for a vintage, rustic door completely decked out in an over-the-top floral arrangement? We think not.

Keep your wedding aisle decor budget-friendly (and sustainable) with a faux floral arrangement to frame the door. Pure magic.

Sometimes the best outdoor wedding aisle decor ideas are the simplest. Case in point: this stunning white flower-lined pathway.

We love the way this couple took advantage of a natural feature of their venue and opted to use the existing florals to make a statement. Elegant and budget-friendly.

And the symmetrical setup of simple white chairs on either side of the aisle? So pretty! We love how it gives each guest the perfect view of the bride as she makes her way to her groom.

Safe to say, this natural wedding aisle decor is what dreams are made of.

Sometimes simple wedding aisle decor ideas are also the most romantic. Case in point: this aisle adorned with the prettiest of twinkle lights.

Go for the ultimate moody effect for your wedding aisle with candles in gorgeous gold lanterns, and skip the overhead lights altogether.

We’re swooning!
