I’m having an outdoor wedding, near the beach, and I’m wondering if I should have an aisle runner. My concerns are that 1) it will be very windy so I’m not sure a runner will stay down 2) it is at a lighthouse and there is a wooden board walk- about 50 ft long to get out to it, so it is too long to do a runner on the whole thing but I’m afraid of tripping or tearing my dress on the wood 3) the site does not permit fake flower petals to be used at the site because they could end up in the water. What should I do?

I would skip the runner and do another type of decoration. Maybe real flower petals or actual flowers lining the walkway?

You can use rocks to hold the aisle runner down, I’ve seen DIY instructions where they attach them underneath so you can’t see them but with your wedding being at a lighthouse on the beach I think a little pile of flat rocks here and there would look nice and would fit your venue. Or you could put vases every few feet to hold the aisle runner down. I personally am a big fan of aisle runners, I think they finish the look. I’m going to do one for ours with our monogram on it, we’re getting married on a golf course and I don’t want to get stuck in the grass.
