Style the aisle your way with these creative and unique wedding altar ideas. The wedding altar plays an important role in your big day; it’s where you finally get to say ‘I Do’ to your beau and officially become husband and wife, together with being the main focal point and backdrop to the photographs of your ceremony.

 

These simple, yet unique wedding altar ideas will create impact, a fantastic focal point (as well as a talking point!) and are another way to stamp your personality as a couple on your wedding.

 

 

In full bloom

 

Flowers are the traditional way to dress the wedding aisle and altar, so take this idea to the next level and go oversized with your florals and create a pretty pagoda altar that’s in full bloom. This is a popular outdoor altar idea for destination weddings, which can easily be arranged with your wedding planner, florist, wedding venue or hotel.

Ribbons

 

Pretty, whimsical, festival, colourful, cheerful, bright and beautiful – romantic ribbon details work wonders as an awe inspiring ceremony backdrop.

 

Decorating with ribbon can be a relatively cheap and simple way to add colour and impact, as well as being light in weight, which makes them ideal to take abroad to beautify a destination wedding venue.

Open the door to my heart

 

This is one idea that you will need someone at your destination to help you with! However, always tell your wedding planner all of your ideas as they may have done something similar for a bride before you and they might have just the thing you need to hand. Decorate your day with doors, add wonderful windows and pin up picture frames for an alternative altar!
