maybe you’ll need to put down a little something under it so it wont tear as you walk in heels?   I’m curious to see what others experiences are….as I’m in the same boat.

I was a bridesmaid in a wedding with an aisle runner on grass.  I really didn’t work well at all.  We were prepared for the outdoor ceremony and no one in the bridal party was wearing heels.  It just didn’t stay down.  It was tacked in several places, but that didn’t matter. 

I think it was because the ground was a little soft (it rained a few days earlier).  Ever time someone stepped on it, the runner got pushed into the ground and the tacks pulled out.  Then the next person walked and it pulled some more.  By the time I was to walk, I had to lift my knees kinda high for each step so I wouldn’t drag it. 

The groomsmen tried to straighten it out for the bride, but it was ripped in a few places, so they just pulled it up so she wouldn’t trip on it.

I was at a wedding this summer and it was a disaster. There were holes all over it from people stepping on it with heels on and the bride almost tripped coming down the aisle. I’d say that unless you’re planning on having plywood under it, don’t do it directly on the grass.

What about wrapping plywood in cloth instead?  It sounds like you need a hard surface to keep the material from tearing.

Or if you are just looking to create a strong aisle presence you could run thick ribbon down the sides.  Maybe even several in different width and in the colors of your wedding.  Just a thought!

Best Luck!

I have never seen a aisle runner on grass… though I can see why it wouldnt work.  Im sure you thought about this already, but what about simulating an aisle with flower petals?  I love how that looks, esp. at an outdoor wedding.  Good luck!

i actually decided against having an aisle on grass. i’m planning to get these rose garlands to line the sides of the aisle.  i was thinking of just laying down flowers, but i want very little and quick clean-up so the garlands will do.

Here’s an example: rose garland

I am getting married in April this year in an ouotdoor ceremony. My florist said we should have a carpet put down, ask your florist to rent you one. 

Our florist said she can rent one for $200, it’s like a celebrity carpet thing but in white, hope that helps.
