I am not getting married in a church, and the venue I decided on has a huge marble staircase. The planner said most of the brides descend the staircase instead of walk down an “Aisle”. How do you feel about this?

I feel like I would bust my ass…but that’s just me. Between nerves and heels, I’d be head over heels in a heartbeat. I love the idea of it though! 🙂

Sounds special and will make a memorable entrance!

Are the chairs usually set up so that the stairs are in the front? Or are the stairs usually the beginning of the aisle?

I would probably fall down the stairs!

It sounds like a beautiful photo op. I’d just practice a couple of times in my wedding shoes before the big day.

I voted stairs since it is very unique sounding, but I am very uncoordinated and could not get away with it! Just go slow, have an arm to guide you and it will be beautiful.

I am having nightmares of tumbling down the stairs. I may need to practice. Good thing I have lots of time.
The chairs would be set up facing away from the stairs. I would descend the stairs, and then walk down a short aisle to the center for the ceremony.

The stairs sound dramatic!
I have stairs (no aisle option) to walk down, and I am terrified of taking a header! In hopes of not falling headfirst down the stairs in front of all my friends and family, I am wearing totally flat shoes and having my dress hemmed to a good walking length – no train. Also, I’m walking with my strong, giant dad holding onto my arm. He’s caught me before, so I know he won’t let me fall too badly! 🙂
Good luck whatever you do!

I’d rather walk down the aisle. I’d be too afraid of falling on my face or my bum, especially in heels. And definitely would need an escort to help keep from falling.

That would be beautiful! I’m a bit klutzy, so that’s the only thing that would make me nervous. But it’s really unique, so I say you should go for it!

I think the stairs are more dramatic, but I would be terrafied of falling or tripping on my dress.
You can always take pictures on the stairs afterward for the dramatic photos.

I would love to walk down a spiral staircase like the ones at Villa Antonia in TX but I’m like a newborn deer on my feet…and I don’t live in TX. : (

Mine has stairs leading to the aisle. We are having it in our backyard and we have stairs from the kitchen, where I will be coming from, and then the aisle will start to the altar

Stairs to a short aisle? its the best of both worlds! You get the drama of the stairs and the calssic feel of walking down the aisle. Cant wait to see pictures!
