That site is beautiful! I like the idea of the small decorations to add your color in. The guests will really like the little touches. I have heard that only the bride should walk on it BUT I have also seen many ceremonies where the runner is already set up and a ribbon or something blocks it from the arriving guests. The bridal party will have to in order to get to the front so I don’t think its a problem personally. I did a quick search online and it seems like its okay for the bridal party to walk down on the runner.

But with that said if your Aunt feels really strongly about it, what if you did only flowers sprinkled down the aisle and then there is no runner??

I think the only thing that MUST happen during a wedding is two people must get married…. and that doesn’t even happen all the time.

“But how on earth do we secure the runner to ensure it doesn’t blow away or trip anyone if it’s not taped down beforehand???”

Duct tape.

“What guest wants to watch my ushers tape down an aisle runner before I make my entrance???”

No one, really, but they will watch on. The ushers just have to be swift.

At my best friend’s wedding (which was indoors), we all walked down the aisle runner before she did.  I didn’t think anything of it, and I am pretty sure nobody else did either.

At my wedding, the center aisle was blocked off (just with tulle draped across it) so that the guests didn’t walk on the runner.  The tulle was removed and the BMs, FGs, and RBs walked on it before I did.  So, no, it didn’t get dirty (considered that’s not a lot of people walking on it).  

Another wedding I was in, the bridal party all walked down the center aisle… Then the ushers rolled out the aisle runner (which was talked down at the altar) for the bride to walk down.  That was an indoor wedding, so they didn’t need to worry about taping it or anything.  

So – those are 2 options I can think of… I feel like the 2nd option is a bit iffy for an outdoor wedding (with wind and all…)… Maybe you can suggest that first one to your aunt – The guests wouldn’t be walking on it… Only the bridal party (and maybe the dancers) and then you 🙂

I made my own aisle runner with spray adhesive and silk ivory petals.  it too is 100 ft long.  If you like it I can rent it to you.  You can see it in the link below:
