Aisle Decor for Your Ceremony

As your big day approaches you begin to think about all of the details that will make your Wedding the perfect event! At Dana Markos Events we are all about adding in the special details that will make your day even more special, so we tend to have a great appreciation for anyone who looks to go the extra mile. The ceremony is the opening to your Wedding, so it's the place to set the tone. By doing something special with your ceremony, you will be able to introduce your guests to what they can expect!

Flower Petals
The traditional use of flower petals is to have them scattered down the aisle, usually by the Flower Girl! Why not change it up and have a unique and beautiful design scrolled through instead! Make sure there is plenty of space for guests to get into their seats without disrupting the pattern, and you will have a gorgeous unique aisle!

Candlelight
If your having your ceremony indoors, you will be able to play with the lighting and ambiance in a way that outdoor weddings can not! By keeping the overhead lighting to a minimum, candles can light the way down the aisle and create a beautiful dusk feeling for this intimate moment!

Unique Objects
If the traditional use of floral petals or candle light aren't what you had in mind, maybe you should consider a more unique object or shape to run down the sides of your aisle? These sparkling stars and tiny hearts on pics are adorable and show off your spunky personality and definitely something your guests haven't seen before!

Aisle Runner
Traditional aisle runners are an elegant way to send the Bride down the aisle, but they tend to be somewhat boring in white or off white. If you want to spice things up make a major change and use something in another color, a pattern, or even something extra unique that adheres to your overall theme such as the blackboard design below! Definitely a great way to show your guests your personality!

Many Brides choose to make the major focus on the reception portion of their wedding by adding in all kinds of special details! Don't forget to bring these touches to your ceremony as well! It is the place where your guests will receive their initial glance at your wedding style, so why not impress them early on with something they haven't seen before!

First Place on the Boston A-List


As many of you have already heard, Dana Markos Events has received First Place Recognition as Best Wedding Flowers of Boston, and we wanted to dedicate our blog today to all of our friends, families, former clients, and fans who were so unbelievably supportive during this period of voting! In the past few years we have finished this contest in the top three, and for the first time we successfully took First Place! As just one of Boston's many talented vendors, we know that the competition for this title was fierce, and it just makes us even prouder to be able to claim it!

We sincerely want to thank everyone who voted, "shared" it, and spread the word in our support! We could never have done it without every single one of you and from the bottom of our hearts, we want to say THANK YOU!

Let The Games Begin!

With the Olympics in full swing we wanted to share some fun olympic themed party ideas with you guys! 


This is the perfect time of year to have a field day party and why not base it around the olympics!? This can be great for adults and kids! First, you want to come up with a few different events your guests can participate in. Some examples: The Discus, but instead of having a real discus just use a frisbee (easy and safe for kids!), also have a running race set up with a rope to run through for the finish line and you can even incorporate some field day events like the water balloon toss or the three legged race! 



To make teams you can have your guests pick countries out of a hat or to make teams a little more even you can have a few designated team captains! You can also do a lighting of the torch in the beginning of the party to really get your guests in the competitive spirit! Just do something simple like have someone run in with a lighter stick and light tall pillar candle. 


For some food ideas you can decorate some cup cakes and or cookies with the olympic symbols like the olympic rings or some gold, silver and bronze medals. You could also decorate them with the countries that are participating in the events that day. 


Dont forget to have medals ready for the event winners! You can get them at your local dollar store or make some if you are feeling crafty! We also suggest you have team flags and have your guests dress up in their countries colors!
