mason jars with a few DIY flwers

decorate the aisle with silk petals-could be a problem if there is a breeze off the lake

quick and easy- place potted plants or cut flowers ( the kind you get at the corner store) in buckets

teacups sourced from thriftshops or borrowed from relatives- fill with a tiny flowering plant

large pomanders placed only at the entrance to the aisle

I love simple decor for outdoor weddings, so I wouldn’t worry so much with the aisle, but I would try to do something to designate an alter.

I can’t tell how far those trees are from the chairs, but I saw this first pic & thought it was beautiful!

Or, if you move the chairs over & focus on one tree you could do something like the the 2nd pic. Or add paper lanterns to the tree.

The 3rd is just a really simple way to show the alter.

Or, you know the backdrop is pretty enough, you could just get rose petals and thrown them down the aisle w/ no other decor other then the trees & the water 🙂

That ceremony space is so beautiful it really stands well on it’s own.

We just had chair hangers on the first two rows of seats to indicate they were “reserved”. Other  than that we let the space speak for itself.

You can kind of see them on either side here:

The nice thing was, that these flowers were then moved to the reception venue and placed in the bathrooms as bathroom decoration. So 2 uses for the price of one!

This picture was my aisle inspiration.  We’re getting married on a lakeside patio at 7pm in early June.  I am not a floral-garland, pomander, or rose petals type bride, so we’re using varying sizes of black lanterns with white pillar candles inside.  I’m having lavender sprinkled down the aisle.  I think since you’re doing it outdoors and there’s already so much beauty, something simple, elegant, and understated would be easy and cheap to pull together, but also make a really good impact.  You’re not having to work with a sparse church or hotel banquet room, so you shouldn’t need much to give it some umph!

ETA: Here’s another picture my Google search turned up.  Lovely combo of florals (you’d need a few so it probably wouldn’t be that expensive) and lanterns.  We’re buying wholesale bags of lavender pods for the ceremony and elsewhere throughout the reception…check into wholesale florists or other plant vendors for cheaper rates if you want some flowers.

@MrsDrRose612: I love this. It’s perfect, especially for OP’s setting!

Maybe they would allow you to use lanterns with a flameless candle. I don’t see why there would be an issue with that.
