I’m getting married on a pier outdoors. The only thing provided by the hotel are the chairs and stand for officiant. It can get quite windy and my backdrop is the Manhattan skyline. I am really stumped as to how to decorate our ceremony. I feel like I shoud at least have something down the aisle and on the sides of us at the front. It’s a fall theme.
Please post any photos or ideas!

For the aisle, you can have an aisle runner or lay flower petals/leaves down.
For the ceremony area you can have two tall floral arrangements on either side of you or maybe rent an arch.
Just a couple of ideas!

Be careful with the aisle runners if it’s going to be windy because they can get all twisted and come out looking crappy in pics. I’ve seen that happen. Why don’t you put a little pomander (sp?) on alternating chairs, hang programs from the chairs, go to the flower district and get some petals and stew them all over the aisle that you walk down? For the place where the officiant stands, I’m sure you can rent a stand or something and drape some kind of filmy linen on it.

I’m probably going to use shepherds hooks and hang pomanders on them to line the pathway up to our gazebo. For our aisle we might get those stations (? forgot what they’re called) and tie tulle to them and between them so it will line the aisle.

I am in a similar situation, but we will be on a rooftop (hard flooring) looking at the Chicago skyline. I think we will tie baby’s breath to the end chairs for every other row. Not sure what I will do for the end of the aisle though as I do not want to distract from the skyline.

You could embrace the fall season and have two bushel baskets full of fall leaves, branches, gourds etc at the front.
White pumpkins would be an elegant way to line the aisle and heavy enough for the wind not to be a problem.
