I’m getting married on my family farm by the lake. Rustic theme; hay bails (covered in quilts so they won’t stick anyone sitting on them), burlap and mason jars.<br />I’m thinking about having a burlap aisle runner but wondering what the reviews are? anyone have personal experience with it? do it bunch up? we are all wearing our cowboy boots so not worried about poking holes in it. I would get the aisle runner steaks to make sure it stays in place. Its a gravel road to the lake with grass on either side where the hay bails will be. Also plan on seating everyone from the outside of the hay bails so the runner would stay clean for the bridal party/bride.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! 🙂

The trouble with using a runner on grass even with stakes, is the trip factor. It’s so easy to drag a heel and get caught up in the fabric.
– use a really heavyweight, tightly woven burlap<br />-starch the runner so it’s really stiff. It will still look like burlap but be much less likely to catch a heel.
-do 2 narrower runners on the sides of the aisle, leaving the center open.

Great ideas! thanks so much!<br /><br />I also thought about using a 6 foot wide burlap runner to completely cover up the gravel road… it would definitely be heavy 60 feet long and 6 feet wide… oh the decisions!! i like your ideas about 2 narrower runner also!<br /><br />Thanks again! 🙂
