Ceremony Flowers: Aisle & Altar Arrangements

Your flowers set the scene for your walk down the aisle. Your vows. Your kiss. Your memories of your family and guests as you pass by them as bride and groom. Let your flowers tell the story of who you are, and what your wedding day means to you. Don't forget to add to the magic and luster of your storybook ceremony by adding garlands, greenery and twinkling lights to match your sparkling smile.


  • Consider creating an aisle with a magical pathway of rose petals and vine-laden torchieres as the setting for your grand entrance. Add potted ferns, flowers, candelabras and scented candles at intervals between the rows.
  • If you're having your ceremony indoors, consider making a statement with a blush pink aisle or celery green runner for a crisp fresh look.
  • If you're getting married in the garden, laying a runner over grass is a bad idea -- unless you want to make a head-over-heels entrance.

Altar Arrangements

  • If you're getting married in a church or synagogue, there are often freestanding arrangements in large vases and urns already in place. But if you want your own, be sure to include these in your flower plan.
  • Mercury glass buckets make elegant containers for a variety of arrangements.
  • If you highlight your flowers and urns with tiny lights, the effect is magical
  • Make sure you have someone transport your ceremony flowers to your reception for maximum use.
