Our favorite wedding aisle decor ideas are perfect for any venue, color palette and exactly what you need while planning your perfect wedding. But before we share our favorite inspo, let’s cover a few essential aisle decor FAQs.
Should You Buy or Rent Your Wedding Aisle Decor?
Both have their perks! Buying your wedding aisle decor most likely means you’re having it custom-made, which we love! There’s nothing quite like having your wedding aisle decor be truly unique and inspired by your distinct style and vision for your day.
We also love the option of buying your wedding aisle decor if you plan on incorporating elements in your design that you know you’ll use well after the wedding day. Are those gorgeous lanterns lining the aisle? Those would be perfect when arranged together in the backyard of your new home after you say “I do”.
The downside of buying your wedding aisle decor? Custom designs can often get expensive. And if you opt to design your aisle on your own to save on cost, it can be both challenging and time-consuming.
Renting your wedding aisle decor is oftentimes the more common choice because there are wedding vendors that specialize in this. This tends to be the more cost-effective option, and you won’t have to worry about taking it down and home after your wedding. However, renting can sometimes mean that you have the same decor as another couple (and the wedding aisle decor you use may be a bit more worn down from multiple uses).
Overall, every couple is different and you should do what makes the most sense for your budget, timeline and the vision you have for your wedding aisle decor.
How Much Should You Expect to Spend on Wedding Aisle Decor?
Depending on if you plan to buy or rent (and whether you plan to hire help to put together your wedding aisle decor), you can expect to spend anywhere from $300 – $3,000. This is typically how much couples spend, but of course, it could be less or more.
If you are looking for wedding aisle decor that is budget-friendly, opt for a simple and more minimalist aisle design. Or gather friends and family to help with the setup and breakdown on the big day.
If you are looking for a unique wedding aisle look, be prepared to spend more for a custom wedding design where professionals can expertly arrange your decor on your behalf.
