That’s a beautiful place to get married. Congrats. 

I’m having an indoor wedding. Are you having an aisle runner? You can also have rose petals marking your path…

I LOVE your venue…I would suggest stanchions. I ordered some for my sister’s wedding b/c she is not getting married in a church and therefore wouldn’t have pews to hang things from. We are doing rows of chairs and decorating the aisle using the stanchions with pomanders and tulle. I ordered 8 for I think $179? I have to look up the website I ordered from. The nosey fellow in the background is my sister’s dog Nixon.

The aisle runners come in either cloth or paper. Maybe you can use a cloth aisle runner? Or maybe you can decorate the aisle with candles? Is your wedding a day or evening? I’m guessing day since it has such a beautiful scenery. 

Something like this….

Oh my gosh, that site is beautiful.

You could always set the mason jars with the candles on the ground, then sprinkle rose petals on the pavement.  So long as it isn’t a windy day I suppose the petals would stay…

@di…they actually come in different colors and sizes and also can be rented. I purchased them b/c I plan on using them again. Otherwise, we would have definitely rented them.

I like the candle idea…that’s really beautiful.

Hm… that’s a tough one.  I can see why it’s a daytime ceremony!  That could be dangerous in the dark 🙂

Honestly, if it isn’t in the budget, don’t worry about it.  Do whatever you were going to do by you and your future hubby, and the site itself will decorate the aisle.. it’s freaking beautiful!!!

What about lining the aisle with branches of magnolia leaves……..or maybe potted flowers

Awww. I’m a former Ithacan, and I know exactly where this is. In fact, I was once to a wedding in that exact spot. It’s so powerful and dramatic a location that it doesn’t really need decoration (and anything you put there is likely to be lost). I guess you could demarcate an aisle by stringing ribbon between posts stuck in flower pots…something like that. If I were you, I’d appoint a couple of friends or family members  to help arrange the crowd so that there’s a clear aisle up the center. They’ll cooperate — most of us know how a a wedding should look and will instinctively fall into formation. That may be all you need. Good luck! Can’t wait to see your pics! -JB

Wow, that waterfall is an awesome backdrop. I think you may need to distinguish the aisle in some way so standing guests don’t get in the aisle. I like the jars on the ground but see your point about them being too small. Could you attach them with ribbon so that there is a clear line people won’t try to walk between them? Alternatively maybe you could get some tall things (house trees would fit the setting nicely or pedestals or something about 2 feet high) and have two at the begining of the aisle, two in the middle and two at the end and tie ribbon or tulle between them to specify the aisle without overwhelming it.

OK, I know I just posted like five seconds ago, but I had another idea: A friend made a chuppah for her wedding that I may re-use for mine. It included wooden dowels purchased from a hardware store and spray painted gold (see attached). Her attendants held the chuppah over the couple during the ceremony. What if you appointed about 8 guests (maybe 4 on each side) to hold dowels or broomsticks with tulle strung between them to mark off an aisle. (Similar concept to flower pots, but more flexible with nothing to tip over.) It’s not a big imposition for a guest as it’s not particularly heavy or cumbersome and would make for a clearly defined aisle.
