I've read some of the posts... so please don't give me that idea...lol Our wedding will be short and sweet, but it is out doors, and I am not sure if I should do something to create an aisle or not. I figure most people will be able to just stand... our ceremony is going to be about 15 minutes if that. For those who can't stand, we will have chairs available. But should I have some kind of aisle to keep people from standing where we would be walking? And I am looking for ideas to create that. Something simple, inexpensive and looks good during the day. My first idea was to have my FI make some wooden stakes at work, then paint them in the colors we have chosen, and then drape some tule or ribbon between them. But I kind of think that is going to look a tad tacky. Our reception is going to be our annual family picnic. Normally there is minimal decoration for that, but I think we should decorate some since it is afterall our day and we are kind of taking over the picnic. But centerpieces for a picnic? Favors? We are going to make fans for the ceremony, but what about small favors for those who didn't make the ceremony or for the kids? I have had ideas, but we are working on a really tight budget right now and I'm trying to create a wide option range.
