I posted on this a week or two ago but didn’t get a response. I want to order an aisle runner but I’m nervous about getting one that tears or will make people trip. I need one that’s about 100 feet.
I’m on a budget so I”m hoping that I can still get a good one. I’m wondering if there’s a place I could go in person to buy one. I don’t want to do Michael’s.
Any suggestions? Thanks so much! 🙂

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…

I could ask David’s Bridal when I’m there this Sat. while getting my alterations done if 1. they have aisle runners or 2. they can make suggestions about where to get one.
What do you think…
