@NJmeetsBX: Have you considered shepherd’s hooks with flowers hanging? That way the venue cannot complain about a mess and you can use the flowers for decoration during reception as well (use telescoping hooks rather than those that go into the ground).

Another idea what about using flowers on a string (think leighs)? I went to a wedding and they had long lines of flowers along the edge of the aisle and it was super easy to clean up, just pick and go, so the venue allowed it.

You could also ask about using silk petals- if the venue is concerned with staining. Because artificial petals wouldn’t stain carpet and would be easier to pick up after the ceremony. They don’t have exactly the same look as real petals, but noone’s going to be bending down to look at them.

Another idea would be to attach small bouquet-like arrangements on the ends of the rows (or every few rows). You could also do larger arrangements in vases or urns at the front and/or back to kind of frame the aisle.

Good luck! http://www.kiwicabbage.com

@Treejewel19: beat me to it! Attach the flowers to a string or rope like a lei or garland

you could drape the garland from pew to pew- have the ushers seat guests from the other end of the pew

or lay it along both sides of the aisle

You can make runners to go on each side of the aisle like this: http://diy.weddingbee.com/topic/my-super-easy-petal-aisle-runner OR thicker like this:http://diy.weddingbee.com/topic/9000-petal-aisle-runnerliner 

The first one seems alot easier with the spray glue, Mine were 27′ long each and i hot glued every petal down on 🙁 it took forever but they look great! I bought my petals from silkflowersfactory.com for $5 for 500 petals.

I did flower on the outside of the pews. I know it’s not on the ground but you will notice them as you are walking down the aisle.

We had our centerpieces down the aisles on stands. You can kind of see them here. No professionals yet 🙂

@CupCakeMeg: Haha! Love the expression your doggie has- so cute!

The below pic is a former wedding at our venue, which doesn’t allow petals either. (I wanted them so bad too!) These people worked around that by creating ‘bunches’ & arranging them in rows. Not sure what I’ll do yet, but I love the ideas pp’s have given here.

I have seen isle runners with pettals glued or sewed on them.. on the whole thing, or just on the sides. It looks pretty cool ill try to find a pic.
