Every wedding I have attended and been to, the runner has been laid out before anyone shows up (guest-wise).

@LBalazi:  I would ask the church if it is okay to have a aisle runner. My Fiance and I are getting married in a catholic church and they don’t allow aisle runners because of the risk of injury to us or other guests. And also if they are allowed, ask the church if it is okay to lay it out before the ceremony. 🙂

The runner is supposed to get rolled out right before the bride walks down the aisle- it’s purpose is to prevent the dress from getting dirty. You don’t want to roll it out way in advance or it will get dirty or damaged by guests.  Usually someone from the church or venue would be in charge of rolling it out, make sure to ask and if no one has the task, maybe ask a guest to do it, but be carefull, the runner is a bit sticky and not as easy as you would think to roll out! I’ve seen many a crooked runner!

@LBalazi:  The guests usually take their seats from the other side. I haven’t seen any guests walk on the aisle runner.

Usually it’s set out before guests arrive, and it’s blocked off, usually with a ribbon or something running across it, so guests dont trample on it, and then guests can enter from the other side of the seating.

You can kind of see it in this picture

@LBalazi:  Why would they not be able to be seated from the other side?

@LBalazi:  I think it has to be, or it’s a fire hazard.
