I am really trying hard to pull off a non-floral wedding. I am compensating by using lots of candles. However, I just found out that no lit candles are allowed in the aisle and only contained dripless candles elsewhere. I have attached a picture of the chapel. Any ideas on what I could do to spice up the aisle and alter without flowers and limited use of candles? Keep in mind that I’m trying to keep costs down as well.

well I don’t know what your taste is, but I thought these dried leaves in modern vases were cool and affordable:

I really really wanted to do my aisle and my alter with something like this but … my venue didnt allow candles at all and it was out of my budget ..
Going with the candle idea…
could you incorporate something like these floating candles in large vases?
How about Lanterns or tissue Pomanders

You can light those up from underneath. You can fill them with anything that would match your wedding colors or theme. You could even fill them up with cristmas balls in your wedding colors.

engdom those are beautiful! I hadn’t thought of filling vases with dried leaves. Thanks
FutureMrs.Harless unfortunately I can’t have any lit candles in the aisle, even if it is floating in water. But I have been thinking of using Pomanders

Ya that’s a hard one….lots of places show flower examples. Did you find anything for the altar?
For the aisle I’m thinking of doing tulle with our Initial through card stock. See picture…

I like the dried leaves in the vases! So unusual!
That looks very nice! Great idea!

I love the look of the tool with the cut-out. Maybe I’ll wrap that around the circular alter? Something to think about.
Right now, I think I’m going to use varying sizes of straight tall vases to fill the top of the alter with the tallest vases in back and shortest in front. I’ll fill the vases with varying heights of water and have floating candles. I’m hoping the glass and water will create some pretty reflections from the candles. I’m going to do a dry run before hand… fingers crossed
