Yes, no matter how simple or lavish a marriage ceremony you are having, you should decorate the aisle. It is mandatory. But yes, the type of aisle decoration should depend on the flooring. If the church flooring is distracting, then decorate it with a nice aisle runner along with some standing displays like flower vases, candle holders, potted plants, monochromatic vases, or any other thing. If you are not keen on an aisle runner, then you can even cover the flooring with your favourite flowers and walk on it towards your man. And, if the flooring suits your taste then, no need to cover the aisle with a runner. Just a few standing displays on the side will be enough.
Use floral bouquets of various sizes to beautify the church. Place them on pews, church windows, at the entrance of the church, panels, or any place you want to. But, make sure you do not overdo it. Else things might look clumsy. And, if you do not want to go all floral, then you can even decorate the pew or any area with bows or ribbons. You can even decorate it with wreaths made of leaves, flowers or paper.

Now, this décor depends on the budget and whether the church permits it or not. If it is permitted then say ‘I do’ beneath an arch made of roses, lily, or any of your favourite flowers. It will add a unique twist to your wedding ceremony. Do make sure it goes well with the rest of the church décor. Else, it might look out of place.
Ask your friends to carry giant signs spelling Love, Newlyweds, Mr. & Mrs., or any other sign that speaks out the sentiment of the day. Ask your pals to show the sign when you have been declared as husband and wife. It will make a perfect backdrop for your wedding pictures plus it will also give a new twist to your regular décor. The signs can be displayed on pillars, play cards, chart papers, or in any other way you like.
If possible, put a monogrammed banner just at the entrance of the church or at the altar. You can use flowers, glitter or paper to spell out your initials on the banner to let the world know about your union.

Well, whatever you decide, make sure it fits in your budget. After all, it is your wedding, you have the right to decide how to decorate the church for your wedding.
