I am not using an aisle runner. I think a lot of them look great until you walk on them. Also, in my opinion, they are a tripping hazzard.

meee!! The beautiful marble floors in my church are too pretty to cover (I MIGHT do some flower petals, if even that)…

I’d like to use one, but probably won’t since it’s a tripping hazard. Also, we’re doing a 40s-inspired wedding, and from what I understand, they just didn’t have a use for frivolities like that back then. 😉

Not here! The wedding coordinator at our venue was against it because it can be a tripping hazard!

My church won’t allow us to use an aisle runner (not sure the reason why), so we won’t be using one.  I don’t always like the look of aisle runners because they can sometimes look very cheap and usually end up getting kicked around, scuffed up, holes in them etc.

I don’t think I will use one. I am in a Catholic Church, and there is already a very long aisle..it’s in red carpeting though. No petals are allowed, either. I’m not sure my church allows it, but I don’t want one anyways. The aisle is SO LONG anyways!

starry, your church sounds exactly like mine!  Catholic church, red carpet, no petals, no runner… You don’t live in NY do you? Although I’m sure there are a million catholic churches with red carpetting and those rules haha. 🙂

I’m using whatever’s in the church. I don’t intend to put a lot of decor into my church other than flower pillars at the front.

I am not using an aisle runner, petals or anything else down the aisle. We are getting married outdoors and I will just be walking down the concrete. For me an aisle runner seemed like a tripping hazard and just one more detail I would have to worry about.

I am not using them. I am just using flowers as the border.

It never crossed my mind to use one.
