What kind of alternative wedding ceremony decorations should I use?

Wedding Ceremony Decorations

Tying in the wedding ceremony decorations with the type of wedding favors you're going to choose really depends on the theme you're going with. If your wedding is going to be on a beach, you'll want beach wedding favors. The beach provides its own natural wedding ceremony decorations. Then again, if you're getting married in a church, a house, or a hall, you'll need to pull together some decorations of your own. You could have traditional flowers and bows, but why have something that makes everyone think, “been there; done that”? Go crazy, funny, and non-traditional with your wedding ceremony decorations by trying out (or modifying) some of these ideas:

1) Go with a “ball and chain” theme with your wedding ceremony decorations by draping chains across the seating area or lining the aisle with them. Just make sure to keep safety in mind so that your guests aren't tripping over everything.

2) Spoof up your wedding by doing a parody of those really over-the-top weddings you see celebrities do. Get a bunch of your friends to act like paparazzi snapping photos.

3) If you're getting married in a very non-traditional place, the variety and creativity of your decorations grow. For example, if you're getting married at your favorite zoo, using animal prints, animal shaped balloons, etc., make perfect sense. On the other hand, if you're getting married at your local fair, park, or picnic spot, think about using decorations that fit into the scenery like “bouquets” of cotton candy, fill picnic baskets with fruit like lemons and limes, etc. If you're going with a non-traditional wedding, don't wimp-out by sticking with the same old tried and true wedding ceremony decorations that have been used a million times before.
