Let’s talk aisle runners shall we?
Aisle runners are an economical way to “dress up” the aisle and bring in an old wedding tradition. In case you didn’t, know aisle runners were used many many moons ago when the aisle at the church was not in the most pristine condition (it was really dirty) and it was unrolled so the bride could walk down the aisle without getting her gown soiled. A very clever idea that we continue to use to this day.
There are a few things to keep in mind when using aisle runners as they should not be used at all times. If the church, temple or venue has hardwood or stone floors forget using an aisle runner. The runner can become a tripping hazard as it wouldn’t be properly anchored to the floor. You could use double sided tape but it would still be a tripping hazard. Other places were to avoid aisle runners…. the great outdoors. Putting cloth over grass, sand or ground that is not level is just not a good idea. If you want to decorate the aisle use petals down the aisle or use floral arrangements on the sides of the aisle. Remember the last thing you want to be doing as you walk down the aisle is fall.
The Original Runner Co. is one of my favorite aisle runner companies, they make custom runners, they have different colors and nothing beats a quality aisle runner.
