TIGERGIRL'S TIP: Aisle Runner

Don't use a muslin aisle runner on grass that got rained on the day before and plan to wear heels!!!  I almost fell going up the aisle, when my heel went through the fabric and caught!   The rest of the way up the aisle, I was high steppin it to make sure it didn't happen again. LOL.  Just don't do it.  =)

Oh no!  Good advice!  I'm actually walking on a concrete sidewalk so I think I'll be ok.  :)

good advice!


we used rose petals to line either side of the aisle...in the middle, where we all walked down, it was just grass :)

On concrete, I'd wear heels.  When we did our trial run, it hadn't rained in a couple of days and then it was fine too, I think with the rain the day before it was too much.  =)

Oh dear.... I was wanting an aisle runner, but it will be laid down on grass.  Any suggestions for a different material that will work?  I'm wearing wedges I think.  I've been told they are the best for grass ceremony sites.

I'm also using a runner on grass and wearing heels. It does seem to follow that muslin is a bad idea. We need to start pooling our ideas, ladies. I'm thinking, sturdy but pretty fabric. Maybe a white organza?

I am thinking of doing a fabric runner. I was looking at a few sites and they can be pricey. I feel like it is something I can create on my own. The other thing is what am I really going to do with it after the wedding? I can't reuse it. Hmm...on the wish list it goes.

Altonece - I made mine out of white muslin fabric that I bought at Joann's with a 50% off coupon.  I think total cost was $25 bucks or something.  I then painted our monogram on it - after the ceremony we cut off the monogrammed end, stapled it to some thin plywood and used it as our guestbook at the reception.  Now we have it framed hanging in our living room.

Here's a pic of it as our guestbook:

Altonece I made mine photo 2591019-1

If your doesn't get trashed and you don't personalize it, then you could always try to resell it.  =)

It was a labor of love to make that lol.....smooreswifey's hubby designed the monogram for us, then I blew it up huge in MSpaint.  (It ended up being like 3 pages by 3 pages) Taped them all together, pinned the fabric to the paper, traced lightly with a pencil and then painted it with regular craft paint.
