Pampas Grass (above): For a unique, boho look, line the ceremony aisle with vases full of tall, fluffy pampas grass stalks.

Palm Leaves: Lush, deep-green palm fronds (or other tropical greenery) look so chic when they're fanned out along the aisle.

Wood Beams: Salvaged wood beams look striking when flanked along the ceremony aisle; florals arranged in wood containers help add some softness to the overall look.

Maps: This globe-trotting couple had the genius idea to line the aisle with rolled up maps from countries they'd traveled to.

Ferns: Accent your ceremony aisle with a pair of potted leafy green ferns.

Painted Geometric Shapes: If your venue allows, paint your wedding pattern or motif directly onto the space that will serve as your aisle. Alternatively, for a non-permanent way to achieve this, you could use a stencil and shake cocoa powder or flour to create the shape.
