that’s a tough one. i was looking at this article and while it seems that one could be safely secured to a carpet, hardwood might be too slippery and dangerous. but that was just from a quick search, there might be much better ideas out there!

Is it possible to maybe line the edges of it with pebbles just in the corners? I’m not sure how they’ll feel about rocks in the church but if theyre tiny I think it would be ok. On the other hand, I use double sided tape for everything and it never leaves a mess! I tear them off posters and they don’t even take the paper off.

If your aisle is not too long, maybe you can put one of those soft foam materials underneath the sari. You know, the same material they use for these kind of children’s mats, except not so colorful. I know those mats adhere to the ground pretty well, enough that kids can run on them without the mat slipping on the hardwood. Also, this way, you can just tack the ends of the sari to the mat. No need for tape.

I live and breathe by Command strips.  If you just use the sticky tape without the hooks, it will secure very well and come off perfectly.  I once used it to hang a bunch of Christmas decorations for a play, and they came off the wood without a trace.  You would need quite a few, though…
