Wow, so how much money do you spend when you’re working on the design for your aisle during your ceremony? Typically not a lot because to me, the wedding should be about the magic of the processional (maybe lots of candles down the aisle) and about the ceremony going on at the top of the aisle. BUT, if you do want to spend a lot of money on the aisle, make sure what you do is seen high enough that it doesn’t block the view of the seats looking toward the bride and the groom.
In the photos you’re looking at now, you’re seeing: suspended chandeliers with arches of fabric that don’t block the view of the ceremony area, a custom runner that is a wonderful look to add to the personality overall to the wedding and drapery behind you which doesn’t distract from the walls, giving you a blank canvas when the photos are taken so you just see the bride and groom. Those are the three places to focus your money on when designing your wedding ceremony area, but here’s a rule of thumb: if you spend a lot of money on your aisle and ceremony design, you better step it up when you walk into the celebration space so it’s even more dramatic than the ceremony space.
