So I’m getting hitched in 16 days – eek!
I’m having a full Catholic mass for the ceremony, and am wondering if it is taboo or not to have an aisle runner, as all of the guests will be walking on it for communion…
I’m toying with the idea of having an aisle runner with artificial petals on the sides, such as they call a “petal valley runner” at the petalhappy.com website…
Or, if you think the runner would be a no-no, then just the runners/ribbons on the sides, like this:
What do you ladies think????

I actually prefer just the flowers. 1) It will not get all screwed up during communion, letting you sell it after the wedding 2) no tripping or getting your dress pulling on it ( I have seen on that got pulled all down the aisle by a dress) 3) I just think it’s prettier, IMO.

If everyone else is walking down it too, I think the second option would be better. It is still pretty but less of a trip hazard!

you CAN have one.. no one is going to stop you but the priest at my church said that aisle runners are difficult to walk on and he suggested we don’t have one

Thanks, you guys!
I’m having a Christmas wedding (duh)…My wedding colors are ivory and black, with red being the accent.
I was planning on putting a couple poinsettias at the first and last set of pews…
I made nice looking red wreath bows to serve as pew bows (put them on every other pew)…
In your opinions, do you think I should go with ivory petals, or red petals? Perhaps a mix?
Would the solid red petals and the red bows be too much?
lol does anybody want to come to Packer – city and do this for me?? jk 😉

@VixyVeggie: I like the red petals, even with the other red accents. I think they will “pop” your dress. I wish I could, I have never been to Wisconsin. One of the few I haven’t made it to yet.

I would just double check with your church about what is allowed/not allowed. I know the Catholic church we are getting married in is pretty strict and said we cannot use an aisle runner or even throw petals down (ie like a flower girl doing so)…. It’s all up to the church, but if you are allowed to, I like the look of just the petals! =)
