I havent tried it but Michaels has aisle runners and with a 40-50% off coupon it would be a good deal. Are you having an indoor or outdoor wedding?

@pittymama:  I have been looking on ebay and seen them for close to $30. However, I feel just roses could work. I really don’t know what we are using yet but I considered going to a hardware store and see how much a roll of white carpet would cost. You can even check out your local party rental store because just like they have red carpet rolls for rent they often have white or other colors for rent. Good luck.

There is a really good deal on a winter themed one online, but I haven’t seen any other amazing deals. Micheals (as previously mentioned) has a nice one, and with the coupon it is decently priced. However, I am not sure how long it is – might only be 25 ft. So it depends how long you need the runner. Are you going to be outside? If so, then flowers petals alone look really good. Have you considered just two small aisle liners? Not sure exactly what they are called but I have seen them on numerous DIY postings.

Oriental trading company has some, their prices on stuff tend to be extremely reasonable.  Also Michael’s and Joann’s have ones that I’ve seen for $25

I am saving money on the ceremony decor as well.  But I figured aisle runner might be too costly.  Was gonna opt out on that and use fake pedals instead. My venue has concrete floor so I think pedals will work fine. What kind of floor do you have?  grass?

I think fake pedals should still look good in all photos and price is only a tiny portion of the real ones.  I saw at dollar store for 1 dollar a pack of fake white / red / pink pedals (around 200-300 pedals, forgot how many).  Or you can get your color online for a little bit more?

they probably are not the cheapest but michaels have 40% off coupon all the time…

if one roll is not long enough, bring a friend and both use a coupon.

I think even if you hung something along the aisle sides it would help it a lot.

I plan on using the tops of gerber daisy’s. not an actual runner. just a few and nothing crazy.

Don’t spend a crap load on an aisle runner unless you plan on selling it.

@superh2ogirl:  that’s exactly how I feel: “Don’t spend a crap load on an aisle runner unless you plan on selling it”

And personally I don’t want to spend a lot on something I step on.  And I am also afraid I will trip over it somehow.  Would be embarrassing and for some reason I fear this vid will wind up on youtube 😛

another way to do, you can put in containers with candles in it to “lit up” the path along the aisle. or some flower arrangements in containers and maybe re-use them for reception.

Micheals, AC Moore , or JOann fabrics.. you can use ALL the coupon at any of the 3 stores- they take each others- AC MOORE posts them online weekly.

 

AC moore has them 75 ft & 100 ft.. i got my 100 ft one there ( fabric) and hand painted it using posterazor for the template/stencil… with paint, brushes and the runner using coupons it barely cost me $25 TOTAL. Heres my runner:
