Hi Bee’s –
I am thinking about doing a DIY aisle runner. I would like a white aisle runner, with fake flowers all around it.
I have 5 months till the wedding, so I’m not really worried about time. I want to know your tips on logistics if you’ve done this and how much it ended up costing.
I went on to Ebay and found this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/50-White-Poly-Wedding-Aisle-Runner-W-Tape-Rope-/370895169565?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item565b13281d
Did you just use a glue gun? Did you have any problems with the wind? Please let me know.

@Meant2Bee: Hopefully weddingbound will respond to this, she made an amazing aisle runner. I’ll try to find the post about it, but it is seriously gorgeous (covered in silk petals).
EDIT: Here’s a link to a post with a picture of it http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/floral-aisle-runner-help#axzz2nlDXEJRt

@Meant2Bee: NOTHING to do with creating the runner, but a piece of advice from a friend’s wedding. She had a beautiful white runner, which was put down in her ceremony venue. Only to get walked on by dirty shoes and get filthy before they got any good pictures of it! By the time the bride walked down it was disgusting and didn’t look anything like it’s original glory. Might be common sense, but apparently no one had to time to consider it at this wedding. Good luck!

i plan on making a similar one, only with flowers on eiter side instead of all over and from what ive read and researched spray adhesive seems to be the best thing to get everything to stay put.
the glue from a glue gun gets hard and you can feel the lumps all over the runner, sewing just sounds like it would take FOREVER [though i do think it would look the best]
there are plenty of places you can get those silk petals bulk online so just make sure you look around for the best price!
