Most of the ones I’ve seen are pretty inexpensive, say $40-$100 (personalized).  If you are looking for a personalized look, talk to a friend or family member that has a sewing machine.  You can buy a bolt of fabric you love and just ask them sew a seam on the edges.  Or, even simpler, use some heat fusing and do the seams yourself.  If your ceremony room is carpeted, you can add some rough sides of velco to the bottom of the runner. That should keep it in place.

How long do you need it to be? I found these for 50 feet at a website and there are only $40 with a $15 off coupon code. I would also check your local Craigslist to see if they are local brides looking to get rid of theirs. These runners have adhesive at the end to stick to carpet or floor. It is supposed to leave no residue.

Check out this blog post about using a sari as an aisle runner.  This is what I am going to do because I can then use the fabric in some other way after the wedding, and it’s very inexpensive!

This bee purchased hers on ebay.  She used double sided carpet tape to hold it down.  I am not sure if I can use that tape on the hardwood floors in the church so I am trying to figure out other ways to make it non-slippery but that might work for you.
