Curious about Aisle Runners.

For the outdoor ceremony, and the aisle runner being placed on grass...


What do you use to stop heels from piercing it, and bm's getting caught walking down it?


What type of fabric can you use as your aisle runner, to paint your logo onto the aisle runner (ours will be black)?

I would only do that if it was going to be rolled out only when you walk on it.  Otherwise, by the time it's your turn to walk down......it's going to be wrecked.

Thx. So I don't even need to bother painting a monogram/logo on it then? It won't withstand the grass and bm's high heels.

You can also line the aisle with petals instead :) I think that would be beautiful for an outdoor wedding.

You can definately utilize rose petals along the aisle ways!  You can do so much with it.  :)  Google Image girlfriend!  lol

I'm getting married outdoors and having an aisle runner as well.  To eliminate the problem of having people walk down it before the bridal party and tearing we're planning on setting up the chairs so that there's 3 aisles -- the main aisle and two aisles on each side.  We'll block off the one main aisle with a cute sign and some ribbon, then people can use the other two aisles and the outsides.  As far as your other questions, I'm really not sure.

i don't think that a runner will hold up on grass. I agree with the petals or maybe candles or something lining the aisle?


This looks a little dishelved... :-/

You might consider freeze-dried rose petals.  They are as biodegradable as fresh ones, but they are less expensive, weigh less, and keep better.  Check out the "Brides on a Budget" ones at Flyboy Naturals.

 I agree with everyone else.  I really don't think an isle runner can work for the grass.  The petals are a beautiful and natural touch.

 Heel caps are a great option for outdoor weddings. They keep spikes from sinking into the dirt and grass. 

 

Also, to cut the cost of your petals down, try the freeze-dried options from fiftyflowers.com
