I didn’t use an aisle runner, but hopefully some other ladies will pipe in on this. I ordered supplies from save-on-crafts.com, and they do have aisle runners at low prices, not sure what the return policy is, but maybe you could call the company for advice: http://www.save-on-crafts.com/aislerunners1.html

After a DIY project with my aisle runner, I started making custom aisle runners for other brides on my Etsy shop.  I’ve purchased “budget” aisle runner from just about every company I could find (keeping the price under $100), and to date, I prefer the opaque lace print aisle runner (the type you can buy at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby).  They are made of a nonwoven polyester, and feel similar to cloth.  They are actually pretty durable and I’ve received a lot of satisfied comments from customers.  They stay well on carpet (although I always recommend securing them with carpet tacks or straight pins, just in case) and they also work well on hardwood/laminate/tile floors as you can use a clear adhesive tape to keep them in place.  I’ve tried the “solid” colored aisle runners from Save-On and Afloral, and while they are also nonwoven polyester, they feel more like picnic table clothes (actually, I think I would prefer going to my local party store and buying a cheapy tablecloth to use because I was extremely disappointed with the solid aisle runners).  I don’t care for them because they feel like plastic, and when you walk on them with heels, the have a tendency to stretch (not puncture, but just enough to dimple the material).  Of course, both of these options are on the budget side, so the alternative may be for a cloth aisle runner, which will run up the tab.  Just my honest opinion…
