18 Dreamy Altars and Aisles


Every bride focuses so intently on the design of her cocktail napkins, the fit of her dress, the look of the centerpieces, and the taste of the food, but many forget to make their walk down the aisle special. As you approach the man of your dreams, you should also approach the altar of your dreams. Feel like a queen walking down an aisle made especially for you, and say your vows beneath a breathtaking altar to make your big day one for the books. And not just your books. Your photographer’s, relatives’, and friends’ books too.

Here is inspiration for aisles and altars that will take your breath away:

“Cinderella Story”

features a chandelier in a garden setting. The juxtaposition is heart stopping.

“Like Vines We Intertwine”

sends a message of unbreakable union with a romantic, rustic look.

“Classic Catwalk”

“A Bright Idea”

“Breathtaking Boho”

is a goose-bump-inducing altar that you can do on your own. Here’s the tutorial.

“Draped in Florals”

is the most stunning altar I’ve seen to date. You can do this yourself with monofilament, a large needle, and a ton of carnations.

"Draped in Florals"

“Pink and White Whimsy”

covers you from the first step to the first kiss with gracefully draped fabric and pink floral accents.

“Falling in Lush”

weds just the right amount of bright flowers with light branches. My favorite part is the hanging wisteria.

"Falling in Lush"

“Over the Rainbow”

lets you incorporate tons of in-season flowers in one breathtaking altar. This is a great way to save some dough.

"Over the Rainbow"

“Rustic Reverie”

is truly the altar of dreams. Featuring birch trees and dripping flowers, this will definitely draw attention.

“Green Goddess”

cuts costs and increases romance by using mostly fabric and greens with just a touch of florals.

"Green Goddess"

“I Do in the Round”

gives every guest a VIP seat at your ceremony. The yellow/orange flowers are perfect for an early fall wedding. Line the aisle runner with the same flowers used on the altar for a cohesive look that you won’t trample.

"I Do in the Round"

“Concentrated Clusters”

gives a pop of color every so often, allowing the naturally beautiful birch to take center stage.

"Concentrated Clusters"

“Aisle Love You Forever”

is a ravishing way to welcome your guests, and the perfect walkway for a bride.

"Aisle Love You Forever"

“Firework Fantasy”

is an unreal display under which to say your vows. It’s explosive dynamism will wow your guests and allow for incredible photos.

"Firework Fantasy"

“Vintage Simplicity”

gives you and your honey the focus while supplying a subtly gorgeous backdrop.

    I love the “I Do in the Round!” A circular wedding just makes sense to me. I don’t want people lined up for my wedding like they do for a talent show in a school gym! :)
