Are my ideas too simple? My ceremony will be outside on an “island” type thing. I will have two whiskey barrels with floral arrangements right before the aisle starts and then I will have a cross behind the “alter” with some white fabric draped on it. But I will have nothing lining the aisle or hanging on the chairs. Do I need to add more?
I don’t think is too simple but then I don’t know how your venue look and what backdrop you have. I had some simple arrangement in the aisle but I didn’t have anything in the entrance which would be your barrels. I had an arch instead of cross. I think ceremony has to look good and have the general feel of your theme without breaking the bank. I went for a soft romantic feel and didn’t have to do much because of my backdrop. My aisle arrangements were reuse for small reception decor for restrooms, bar and buffet table. Our arch was moved and transform with some logs, candles and a couch for pictures.
It sounds beautiful and if your background is no e then don’t worry about it or maybe add a few small decorations on every other aisle that could be reused in your reception area. That’s what I did and they were pretty inexpensive.
