Today I started working on making the runners which will run along the sides of the aisle for our ceremony. It took me a good part of my evening to make what I’ve done so far, but I’ve got plenty of time ’til the wedding to finish the rest of it if I decide this is the direciton I want to go in. I’m just a bit worried that they look too “artificial”. What do you bees think? Is it worth finishing the project?

I would totally finish it – look at it from afar will give you the “pop” you’re going for and no one will care that they’re artificial. Looks awesome!

Aisle Runner, Take II:
So, I found another color of petals online on Amazon that I liked better. This version has the newer color (more aqua-ish) as well as being “thicker” than the previous version. I like it better, but it takes probably twice as long to do because I used a thicker layer of petals. What do you guys think?

I like the colour of the second one, but the spacing/ white to blue ratio of the first.

OK. Though I’m a firm believer in if you don’t have anything nice to say…..hopefully I can be constructive.
I think petal runners are abysmal. They seem to cost a bride so much time and effort and they look so unnatural. There are quite a few bees here that show theirs over and over again but I see them and I just think “Ick” Why do people choose these? Surely real flower petals don’t run that much. The straight, blunt lines of the runners just make it look very artificial.
Honestly – I think you would be so much better off getting some blue and cream roses and using those petals, naturally sprinkled over your aisle.

CheddarChexChick89: I too am doing a flower petal aisle runner!! Both colors are very nice but I like how you layed out the petals in the first one. The newer one looks a bit too bunched up
