    yes - it would help brighten up the room and make it more wedding-esque

    no - waste of money and you might trip on it anyway

    I would say no, but I don’t really like aisle runners in the first place. I think it takes away from the beauty (and normalness) of the church.

    @kperry3: ditto this.

    And I think that is a gorgeous church! I love all the dark wood! It’s already got a red carpet, so I’m not even sure why you would need anything else!

    I would say that you don’t need them, but I would be worried about ladies with high heels getting stuck in them… That’s just me though.  I’m clumsy and tend not to watch where I’m going so I trip on everything (including a bare floor…).

    I don’t like the grates…. but covering up something is not always a good idea… I’m undecided.

    I agree, if you cover up the grates someone could step on it with a high heel and get caught and down they go! What about ribbons or flowers on the pews? Its a beautiful church by the way Smile

    I think covering up the grates could be dangerous, and I think the church is stunning as it is–no aisle runner, it would only cheapen the look!

    Skip the runner. If the grates really bother you, maybe put a floral arrangement on them? It’s a gorgeous church, I didn’t even notice them, I thought it was a pattern on the carpet. I would be the dunce whose heel broke through the aisle runner, got stuck in the grate, and twisted my ankle.

    I love aisle runners (got SO many compliments on our aisle runner!), and have never seen anyone trip on them in a church setting, but in your case, I’d say no aisle runner.  If you cover up the grates, I think people will be more likely to trip on them since they’ll be hidden.

    Your church is beautiful!  Totally doesn’t need extra decoration. 🙂

    I don’t think you need them! I do like the idea of putting floral arrangements or something on them, though.
