Decorating is one of the most enjoyable tasks that demand your attention as you prepare for your wedding day. That being said, there are some areas of your wedding venue that you might overlook or that simply don't get the attention that they deserve. The aisles are one such location. Often decorated almost as an afterthought, your aisles can be used to set the mood for your wedding and tie the other decorations you use together. 

Aisle DecorationJazz up Flowers 

Flowers are a huge part of your wedding. By using them in unique ways, you can have memorable decor that sets your wedding apart from the norm. 

1. Add large, smooth stones that perfectly complement your favorite blooms that you have gathered in shallow bowls. Line the aisle with these rocks and strew a few petals along the tops of them. For a colorful contrast that is breathtaking, consider making your wedding flowers a bright color so that they are highlighted against the pale gray of the rocks. 

2. Bring the outdoors inside by intertwining your flowers with different types of foliage. Olive branches signify peace and are a fantastic way to add lots of fresh green vibrancy to your wedding aisles. 

3. Strew your aisle way with the petals of your wedding flower and add sprigs of fragrant herbs as well. Lavender, rosemary and mint are just a few suggestions of herbs that can bring a fresh, new dimension to your aisle decor while the scent wafts gently to your guests.

Aisle Runners That Pop

Aisle runners continue to be a popular addition to many weddings. While sprinkling them with the petals of your wedding flowers is always a popular choice, you can add a new dimension by personalizing it with your names and wedding colors as well.

Brides and grooms don't have to be all decked out in camo to have a down home country wedding. Camo is fine for hunting enthusiasts, but what about the horse lovers and farm kids who want to embrace their own personal version of country. A down home country wedding is simple and stylish. From the wedding dress to the decorations, it is easy to add a country flair using common items that are normally found on on most family farms.

Wedding Attire

For the groom and groomsmen, opt for matching flannel or white shirts with matching dusters. The bride can choose a beautiful white wedding dress and accompany it with her finest cowboy boots, while the bridesmaids wear matching dresses and boots. Matching boots and hats are excellent accessories that add a unique look to the wedding party's attire. Leather belts can be worn by both men and women and is just one way of tying all of the members of the wedding party together.

Decorations

Decorations can be simply made from fresh garden flowers for centerpieces and lanterns to add ambiance. The latest craze in wedding decorations is the use of burlap. Table runners, ribbons, bows and banners made from burlap can be accentuated by using swatches of the same fabric used to make the bridesmaid's dresses. Bales of hay and straw can be used in several different ways. They can be used to line the aisle or as seats around the campfire at the reception. 

Brides and grooms who choose to have a country style wedding can add their own special touch and make their wedding day a one of  a kind event. They choices are endless and are only limited by the couple's imagination.
