I think flower petals look really lovely, and they are so simple – you won’t have to worry about lugging them home after the wedding, they’re biodegrade, they smell nice, and they look so so pretty, especially at outdoor weddings. I ordered a couple boxes of them from Flyboy Naturals, which from their website sounds like a family company in Oregon that uses environmentally responsible growing methods. I dunno if that’s helpful to you!

Here was my inspiration pic:

beautiful aisle - i love the rose petals + oversize lanterns

(And if you can afford it, you could look for lanterns like that, and use them after the wedding to decorate your backyard!)

Or instead of scattering the petals you could use them to make lines along the aisle:

Do some thrifting… I bet you can find a container that looks rustic and works for you.

Wine crates or old apple boxes would work.

You could also make these boxes do double duty by using them as your centerpieces. In that case the smaller boxes would be preferable.

If it’s just a matter of the boxes being too small in proportion to the chairs, or too low to the ground for the guests’ convenience, you could place the box on top of something like a round of wood to lift them up.

We had wood at our wedding as well.  I lined my aisle with curly willow, a few roses, and candles.  Some wood was used to hold the candles but most was used for my centerpeices and cake table.

I don’t think your original idea is bad at all, if you’re worried about the color contrast with the chairs you could stain or paint the crates to a white-ish color. 

How would you feel about using hollowed out pumpkins as containers? I was at a wedding where hollowed out pumpkins were the centerpiece, they dropped in a little waterproof light and floated some flowers in it. Maybe you could even use the seeds/filling for baking/favors?

Rather than line the aisle with petals you could use fall leaves? Or maybe small bales of hay?

You could also use shepard’s hooks to hang mason jars from filled with fall flowers. My florist rents sheperds hooks if you didn’t want to buy them, so yours might too. 

This is neat too
