    I’m getting married outside so it won’t work period.  Never really liked them anyway.  Instead I’m doing a flower runner.

    I don’t care for them. I like the idea of having the flowers like @totheislnds posted. You could even have the flowers line the edge of the aisle. I think aisle runners get in the way and are a waste of time.

    It just seems like something that would trip me, LOL.

    I absolutely loved ours!  And it helped disguise the ugly checkerboard tile in the center aisle of our beautiful church.  Ours was rolled out before anybody in our bridal party walked down, and we got a ton of compliments on it, and it looked amazing in pictures.  I thought it was money very well spent.

    I am much more in favor of other things to line the aisle other than an actual aisle runner. They just aren’t my style at all. I was Maid/Matron of Honor in two weddings and only one wedding had an aisle runner…Which was a disaster. It was outdoors and the runner was like a stretchy plastic and all us BMs poked holes through it with our heels! Plus, the runner was partly on grass and partly on gravel…the gravel tore it up. No good!

    My aisle will have rose petals on each side. I’m not a fan of aisle runners normally, but I have seen some really pretty ones.

    I love the printed ones, dislike the plain white ones.

    I think some are so cute.  It really kicks it up a notch. I personally didn’t have the money for it, so I didn’t have one.

    Our ceremony location has the ugliest carpet, but it is in keeping with the time period of the old mansion. I am having one just to cover it up. We are making our own with black fabric and fabric paint. I have to say that I am not a fan of those cheap ones, they just have no personality.

    I don’t care either way. I’ve seen some that are gorgeous (and expensive!) and others that look like a plastic tablecloth. I think alot depends on each person’s venue. I chose to have one because where we are having our ceremony has dark green carpeting – not the prettiest, honestly. I thought the white aisle runner would disguise and add something to the ceremony. I was looking to get one with a monogram, but didnt want to spend hundreds. We are using fabric. I think it also depends on how you decorate your space. We are using river rock and orchids and some crystals along the aisle.

    I don’t like when the aisle is rolled out prior to the ceremony. It always seems clumsy to me. We are having ours tacked down prior. Then, we’ll just have a ribbon or something to prevent guests from walking down the aisle prior to the ceremony.

    I love the beachy pics with no aisle and just flowers – so beautiful

    I am not a fan for me personally, and will be lining our aisle with rose petals.  I think they are a tripping hazard and I am clutsy enough on my own.

    I can’t remember a wedding I have been to that had a runner either.

    I’m not a big fan of aisle runners. Partly because I think I may loose my footing walking on them, and trip in front of everyone.
