And I’ve decided that I need some sort of aisle decoration.
We’re getting married at an old church that our family friends have converted into a home, the old sanctuary is their living room and has been decorated as such. The space is a little dark with very high ceilings so I’m worried that something is very low to the floor would get lost. Our centerpieces are dried flowers so I’m not sure that live flowers would work as aisle decor. We don’t have specific colors, mostly just muted colors. I often describe the wedding as the feeling when fall first arrives and all you want to do is curl up on the sofa with your loved ones, when there is the first bite in the air and apples are ripe.
I’ve tossed around the idea of white and/or gold painted pumpkins or butternut squash but we aren’t really incorporating traditional fall colors & themes and I’m afraid that these might be too short & will get lost. Our centerpieces are dried flowers so I’m not sure that flowers would work/that we could get them so late.
I’m stumped as to what to do for our aisle decor so I’d appreciate any & all ideas of non floral aisle decor that I could pull off in a week!

do you have a photo of the space at all? what about using gold ribbon?-warm color but it might brighten up the space.

This is the space. We’re using folding chairs and will set them up facing the stained glass window.

this isn’t going to contribute AT ALL, but OMG that is the coolest living space I’ve ever seen. I will never be that hip!

These could be draped. Could be easy to make if you do them in paper, you could even choose some more muted colors to make.
fabric would be nice, but could take longer to make.
Hope that helps

Oh wow that is beautiful! What if, if I am on the same page as to what you are asking you find some cheap tall glass vases say at Michaels or something in alternating sizes and do candles in them? You could fill some with water and do floating candles and the others just do white candles. My friend had her aisle decorated on both sides all the way down with this and it was absolutely stunning.

Ok, Bees I need some more help!
I had been planning to go with brown folding plastic chairs (I know, ick, but it’s too late to change them from plastic) but today my mom asked if I wanted white folding chairs but I’m just not sure which would look best in our spaces.
I love white chairs outside but worry they’ll be too bright inside. Our ceremony space is above and this is our reception space (we’re using white linens)

My vote is go with the white chairs, I think they will look better, esp since you are using white linens 🙂

What about candles down the aisle? If you are worried about a fire hazard, there are non-flmae candles that look very real. You could just line them up down the aisle. If you wanted, you could put some fall leaves around the base.
