Pretty Ceremony Aisle Arrangements: Potted Plants

Ceremony & Vows, Wedding Style & Decor

Fresh-cut flowers are, of course, a pretty way to decorate the ceremony aisle, but here's a more unique idea to consider: potted plants. Whether you decide to leave it to your florist (potted plants are likely more affordable than floral arrangements) or decide to tackle this on your own as a DIY project, there are tons of creative ways to incorporate pots and planters into your ceremony aisle decor. Check out some of our favorite ideas below.

Wood Boxes with Queen Anne's Lace (above): For this couple's woodland ceremony setting, their florist lined the aisle with low, wooden planter boxes brimming with lush Queen Anne's lace.

Copper Pails: If you're having a fall ceremony, opt for burnished copper pails filled with branches and leaves in autumnal hues.

Orange Trees: To create a whimsical, Palm Springs vibe, florist Carissa Jones of JL Designs lined the aisle with mini orange trees set in pots with green moss.
