I love bright, pretty colors and am using quite a diverse palette for my wedding. (Primary: sapphire blue, black; secondary: lime, cream, magenta). Is anyone else bothered by the tradition of all-white aisle runners? The reason guests and attendants aren’t supposed to wear white is that the bride will stand out more if she is the only one wearing it. I feell like my white lace dress will blend into a white aisle runner too much. I’ve found one black aisle runner on etsy (black? really??) but no other colors. I LOVE how some brides have mad a flower petal aisle for an outdoor wedding, but I don’t see how well it would apply in a church. Anyone else trying to take a non-traditional route?

@ItsPronounced_ABear: I would love to see more brightly colored aisle runners! And I agree that the contrast with your dress would look beautiful! Have you considered just going to a fabric store and buying the length of your aisle? The edge of many fabrics would probably be fine without hemming (other than the cuts at the end, I would definitely hem or stitch-witchery those.)
*in case you don’t know, stitch-witchy is one of the brands that sells a roll of what looks like tape. You put it between 2 pieces of fabric and iron it as an alternative to actual sewing.
Also – love your color scheme 🙂

I had a peacock blue aisle runner! I love it when brides punch things up with bright colors. We also used metal spheres and 3-D hexagons as aisle decor (i’ll try and attach a pic – I don’t have a .jpg version with me, so we’ll see how this goes 😉 )

I’m hoping to bargain, beg and plea with my venue to let me put down a RED aisle runner! =]
