So I have the big things taken care of for my wedding and our ceremony is in a small chapel with stained glass and wooden pews. I decided I dont want to spend the money decoarting each row as we will spend such a short amount of time there. What is the deal with aisle runners? Do you use them whatever the venue? Is this an important item? I have no idea if I need one of these or not… HELP

I don’t think it’s all that important, I’m not using one as my aisle will be brick, and that’s just silly to put a runner over brick!

We didn’t have one. They can look nice, but I don’t think they’re that important.

i found a picture of a couple from our ceremony venue with no runner, i dont hate it.

@Tbblount: we didn’t have one and I rarely see them. One of the weddings that I was at, the runner got caught on something and they had to spend a bit fiddling with it. Not worth it in my opinion.

@Tbblount: we had one…it was a week before the wedding and my mom and SIL said, is someone supplying you with an aisle runner? and i said for what? and they said it looks nice in pictures and you don’t want your dress to get dirty (which is a load of crap bc it gets dirty no matter what! i took pictures on a golf course!!! hello!) so i got the aisle runner to make them happy, i thought it was a waste of $75! Usually your florist or limo company can provide you with one. But you don’t have to have one. Like you said, you are not spending a lot of time at the church so its not that serious.

@Tbblount: I had one. I made a runner out of artificial petals! It was very time consuming but worth it in the end!
They aren’t necessary but I knew I wanted one so it was worth it to me to put in the work as it made such an impact!
Here is is on the actual wedding day
