I’m getting married in a historic dancehall (small christmas lights everywhere). Our “ceremony” will be on the dance floor with chairs and benches set up for seating.
At first I’m thinking no need for an aisle runner. No big deal.
Then I thought well what if I lay a few strands of small christmas lights on either side of the isle as a runner.
Then I picked up this paper at Hobby Lobby, so I thought about using it as an isle runner (have plenty, but then I worry it would tear from guests before I get to walk down the isle – though it is thick paper).
And I thought I could do both the paper and the lights…?
I’m torn and my guy says what ever makes me happy… 🙂 It will all be moved for the reception…
Help please! Thanks!

I would be afraid of slipping on the paper… It does not seem very safe to me.

you have a good point. i’m wearing my boots under my dress though, so i’m more worried that i’m a klutz and trip over my bare feet! lol

I personally wouldn’t use the paper- but if you’re worried about people tearing before you walk down it- do you have other aisles they could walk down? For example in the church I’m getting married at I could rope off the center aisle and people could be seated from the outside in.

No paper…you are just asking for trouble. tears, dirt, slippery–no way! I would also say no to the lights on the isle–xmas lights around the venue as decorations will be beautiful but xmas lights on the floor just look like xmas lights on the floor. Have you thought of flower petals? if you are not having a flower girl you could have them scattered before. I could also see some kind of very small spot light on the isle so the petals would show up if they were dark.

We aren’t having a flower girl (or ring bearer). And now that I think about it, I think the paper will just lead to problems.
My father and my son will be walking me down the aisle (one on each side) so we’ll be a bit wide.
If I do flower petals before I walk down the isle won’t they all just caught up in my train?
Thanks for all the insight!
