I had planned to get an aisle runner, because my ceremony room floors look like this:
But something tells me that if I use a standard aisle runner on these floors, it’s going to either:
– Get caught behind my dress and follow me around like stray toilet paper, or
– Cause some serious trip-and-fall scenarios, especially since I will be in four-inch heels.
Adding a runner will also help get around the no-petals-on-the-marble restriction, so the flower girl will actually be able to toss petals.
If you’ve used a runner on marble, how did you get it to stick? Anyone have any ideas? I just feel like these weird tile circles will be distracting in photos.

@EffieTrinket: Where is the medallion in relation to where you will actually stop and have the ceremony? I don’t think it would be distracting unless you stop right there. Just instruct the photographer to take stairs shots and shots at the the altar/ceremony stopping point. I personally think a runner would detract from all that gorgeous marble!

I think it will be fine without a runner. It’s not weird…it’s just a medallion.

I like floor medallions. 🙂
That being said, I think that getting a nice heavy material and anchoring it at the ends (without allowing for much slack in the middle) is the way to go. There should be a heavy rod where the runner ends at the alter so that it stays in place there. There may be tape or another rod at the other end to hold it down.
You can ask the officient how people have done it in the past!

I’d just stick withe the floor as-is. It looks fine to me.

@EffieTrinket: I would not go with an aisle runner. The laws of physics dictate imminent disaster!

I don’t think you need a runner. But if you REALLY want one, get one with rubber backing and anchor it down with some sticky tape at each end.
