@RubyStar:  I heard that outdoor runners cause everyone to trip- I had the same concerns as you. But I figured, you wear the dress once, no one will see the dirt during the ceremony or after (it will all be in the underside of the dress).

@RubyStar:  What is the surface of your venue? Is it grass…cement?

I think an aisle runner would be hard to use outside on grass. I got married outside and the surface was tile. I made a petal aisle runner and used non slip backing on the bottom side to keep it in place. I had no issues at all walking on it on the tile surface but I think a soft surface like grass it would be harder as you would possibly sink into it

Here was mine on the wedding day to give you an idea of the runner I used outside on a tile surface.

We purchased an aisle runner but ended up not using it. I think we walked on the surface you’re taking about?

Our aisle runner is thick carpet, and will be going on grass, because it’s so thick there won’t be any issues with people tripping.

@RubyStar:  Not sure how you would secure the aisle runner on the cement but ask your venue how it’s worked for previous brides.

I got married outside as well and it was cement. I wanted an isle runner to dress it up a bit. Here’s a pic
