Omg, so my future aunt-in law got one for her wedding, we tried to put it down but it wouldn’t go down because of the wind (it was outside) so if you’re outside, id say nix it.

I’m interested to hear what others say on this.  I’ve heard they are a huge pain in the butt so I’m tempted to say screw it and go without.

I got a black one, but the carpet at the place we are getting married at is really ugly.  I like the fabric one, but I think the plastic ones are kind of cheesy.

Not having one, due to cost.  It just isn’t something high on my list of “must-have”

I got a custom made fabric one, and I absolutely LOVED it.  We got so many great compliments on it!  (although it did cost a ridiculous amount of money.  Probably shouldn’t have spent quite so much on it!)

When I was in my cousin’s wedding, her brother tried to unroll the aisle runner for about five minutes. People actually got up from their seats to help him. I like the look of them, but I would do one that’s already laid pre-ceremony so your poor attendant doesn’t have to publicly fight with it. Personally, I’m not doing one because my venue is outdoors.

My pastor advised against it.  I’m already a klutz, so the possibility of bunchy fabric isn’t something I want to deal with at the wedding.  One of my biggest fear is falling on my face and having the video sent into America’s Funniest Home Videos.

I’ve been going back on forth on this, too. I love the way it looks but I too, have heard horror stories about the frustation invovled in getting it to lay just right. My priest also advised against it, but I can’t help still wanting one. 🙂

Someone said that it was OK for the walk done but that it started to move around on the recessional and even more so when the guests exist a lot of people will trip. 🙁

Any bride out there want to to talk me into it?

I am getting mine through Starrynightdesign on etsy.  Their prices are really reasonable and they are really pretty and all fabric.

I think depending on your ceremony venue you can have one, I am not having one, for the look of my wedding the walkway is part of the charm.

@BrooklynBride10 – would you mind telling me what the final cost was.  I sent them a design the other day and they are going to get back with me next week but I am very curious.

@tksjewelry: Just sent you a message with the price info!  Also, my aisle runner was 75 ft long, so if your aisle is a different length, it’ll change the price.
