We recently changed our ceremony venue from a church to outside in a vineyard. My very crafty mother was going to make us a custom, hand painted aisle runner. I hate to sacrafice this, because it’s going to look amazing, but can you use one on grass?

My wedding planner offered to provide us one and I had the same question. She said they are put on grass all the time!

Sure! Maybe consider something like tent stakes to hold it down? Or maybe pots of flowers?

Yes, I see it often. But like @subbywife11: said, you need to weigh it down. Or it rolls with the dress or can tangle around the wedding parties’ feet as they walk.

My venue recommends not using them on grass. We’re doing a petal runner instead.

I always though only the bride walked on the runner, so then how would that work? Hmmmm

I think it definitely works, but for the sake of the grass I would have it put down right before the ceremony and taken up right after. Looking at some park venues they ask you to do this so it won’t damage the grass.

@AirForceWife78: Wouldn’t the wedding party have to walk down the aisle on it? Or would it only be unrolled after they had processed, before the bride?
My worry would be that anyone wearing heels would poke through the fabric and ruin it.

Yeah I’ve always seen the groomsman roll it out after everyone else has already come up the aisle and the bride is the only one who walks on it. The more I think about it, it’s not going to work, sadly 🙁

Sara64: I suggest you add some pictures of the stakes to your website. It seems like the first thing a propsective customer would want to see!
