10 Wedding Altar Decorations Ideas to Create a Beautiful Space at the End of the Aisle

In the Shade

When you have a tree this magnificent, you really don’t need anything else decorating the end of the aisle. In the shade, this couple and their guests stayed cool and comfortable.


Classic Combo

For traditional brides, nothing beats the classic combination of flowers and candles. Put 1 or 2 large floral arrangements at the end of the aisle and then fill the space with an assortment of candles to create a romantic glow.


Hippie Chic

Boho weddings are all about layered textures and colors. This can be a challenge to design when you are working with a blank space, whether that be an industrial loft or an empty field. For this fun event, the couple hung flowers and cream-colored macrame from an arch.

Trendy Watercolor

Addicted to the watercolor trend? This modern backdrop made a fantastic decoration for this bride and groom’s ceremony. Later, it can be used as a backdrop for pictures or even hung in the couple’s home.

 Flower Wall

Why use flowers in a traditional arrangement when you can have your florist create a spectacular wall? For this couple’s wedding altar decorations, they opted to use one massive installation piece made from an assortment of plants and flowers.

Summer Brights

Brighten up your outdoor wedding with an arch covered in bright ribbons for a colorful statement. You can use a similar idea for an indoor wedding, but part of why this decoration is so striking is how the ribbons move in the breeze.

outdoor religous wedding

Religious Decor

Was it difficult for you to choose between a church ceremony and an outdoor wedding? Have the best of both worlds when you take religious symbols and incorporate them into your own altar decor. This garden wedding used a large wooden cross with flowers and balanced it against a hedge to create a sacred space.

Paper Details

We continue to be obsessed with paper flowers. We really can’t help ourselves. This arch-in-progress proves why you should get on board with this trend, too. It’s modern, fresh, and dynamic.

greenery wrapped arch

Plentiful Greenery

 When you favor simple, straightforward decor elements, greenery is a wonderful choice to use throughout your wedding. Cover an arch in greenery for your ceremony that will allow you two to be the focal point, while also offering a soft, natural background.
