Typically ceremony venues like a church or event hall will feature a center aisle flanked by rows of seats on each side—you, your fiancé, and wedding-party members will walk down the aisle before taking your places at the front. However, if you’re hosting the ceremony in a non-traditional setting—like, say, an outdoor garden, loft, or on the beach, then there's lots of room for creativity when it comes to your ceremony set-up.
One of our favorite trends is to opt for a curving aisle that leads up the ceremony altar or structure—a gently winding path is more deliberate and will help build anticipation for your grand entrance. Plus, it's much more unexpected than a typical straight aisle and your guests will take note of your creativity.
To help mark the curving ceremony path, line both sides of the aisle with fresh greenery, flower petals, or some other natural element—this will help define the space to create a clean, well-marked pathway.
