Ampitheatres have plenty of natural beauty, so I really don’t think you need much decor.

Do you have any ideas of what you’d like to use? Flowers? Candles? What is your color scheme or theme?

Finally a thread that spells aisle correctly! You rock!

Actual ideas: I feel like only bright things would stand out…maybe scatter red rose petals?

You can always put some small roses in tea cups along the sides of the aisle. Or a colourful flower arrangement on a small stack of books every couple of rows, as Belle was an avid book lover and the library in the castle was a special place between Belle and the Beast. This way you can also adjust the height as you like with the amount of books. Just an idea 🙂

I think you need to keep scale in mind. Against a backdrop of these large stone stairs, a teacup with roses is going to look miniscule.

I would suggest either something larger in scale, or forget about the stairs and focus the attention at the front of the ampitheatre.

Even these potted plants are dwarfed by the rock.

this wedding used the wine barrels at the top of the stairs with another wine barrel and an old door as the altar.

shepards hooks with something largish … large blue and/or yellow bows or large pomanders.

Milibee13:  It’s a gorgeous venue all on its’ own. You can add decor, but there is no real need.

You could do DIY cloches by finding affordable clear glass vases, turn them upside down, glue on a knob, then fill with one huge paper or silk rose. It would look like this only on a much larger scale

You could even use something like these 2 gallon jars from Target

The first thing I thought when I saw your venue picture was shepherd hook. You could hang any sort of arrangement that matches your theme.

I don’t really have any suggestions, but I just wanted to comment on how gorgeous that venue is. Love it!
