5 Ways to style your aisle on your big day!
Aisle style at Ufton
From the dress and the suit to the wedding transport, there is a lot to remember when planning your big day… but have you thought about the finer details? Not only do you want to look beautiful, but you will definitely want your venue looking beautiful too… and where better to start than with the aisle – after all, this is where the majority of your guests will first see you!
At Ufton we pride ourselves on being a blank canvas, and so there is so much opportunity for you to dress your aisle in a unique way (if you decide to have your civil ceremony with us)!
Why not duplicate some of the flowers in your bouquet to ‘pretty up’ the aisle with, either tied on alternate rows or in jamjars. Although we host over 100 weddings every year in our Tithe Barn and exclusive grounds at Ufton, we absolutely love how each and every wedding is so different! And with this, we see so many different flowers, bouquets and aisle style from our gorgeous brides and grooms.
Have you thought about having a flowerwall or arch behind the register signing table… you are sure to have some gorgeous wedding photographs with this as your backdrop! If your flower wall or arch are easy to move you could then have them positioned behind the top table to make another stunning backdrop. Have a look at some of these past Ufton Weddings, where flowers have been incorporated into the event dressing and are used along the aisle!
Many brides and grooms are opting for a cosy atmosphere, no matter the season, and with this comes lots of sparkles, warmth and candles! At Ufton, we have additional items which can be hired, and in this we can provide large candle holders to line the aisle with … but of course, they are not just restricted to the barn! As well as lining the aisle, we’ve seen them placed in the porchway of the stunning Tudor Manor House and our popular flares, which line the courtyard path between our tithe barn and Archer’s Hall. Once again once they have been used down the aisle you can reuse them to go in the barn windows or outside infront of the huge wooden barn doors. Candles truly are a popular wedding feature.
Maybe a little more traditional, but just as gorgeous, ribbons, bows and materials can be used to add a touch of glamour to your aisle. We especially love to see chiffon chair covers which match the colour scheme of the whole day and sashes tied round the back of chairs.
To keep with the rustic theme of a barn wedding and to incorporate the country setting, many brides and grooms use meadow flowers and stunning foliage in their wedding décor.
We have seen this incorporated in a subtle way through adding leaves and ivy (which also lines the interior barn walls) into bouquets and flower centrepieces, to more obvious potted trees which are placed at the end of the aisle.
Depending on what time of year you are getting married can sometimes determine your décor. If you are having an Autumn wedding, why not having a pumpkin carving competition among the guests, who bring their pumpkins to line the aisle on the big day?! In the winter you could use holly and berries or snowflake decorations – all would be a classy way to acknowledge this season, or in the Spring, you could use daffodils or a yellow theme to symbolise Easter! Potted lavender plants also make for rustic and inexpensive floral centrepieces and can also be used to line the aisle!
So be sure to create that wow factor as your guests enter your wedding and incorporate some extra aisle style!
