So, last December my cousin got married. I wasn’t able to attend, but my mom reports that it was a lovely, small wedding at a Catholic church. I am getting married outdoors overlooking the ocean. Very different.
My aunt asked my mom if I was interested in using my cousin’s aisle runner. My mom tells me that at some point in time I said yes. I don’t remember this, but my aunt apparently just found a box and paid the shipping to send the runner from Virginia to Californa.
Now, I am going to use this runner. I don’t like it, but I know that if I don’t, it would be hurtful. But it really isn’t my style.
So now I am wondering if you Bees have any suggestions for how to incorporate an aisle runner into an outdoor ceremony. My style is more organic and casual chic. Thoughts on anything I can do to make this long, satin runner look like it belongs?

How are you going to walk on it and not get it filthy outside or just even walk on it if it’s not on a hard surface?
I’d suggest lining it with flowers or seashells or something.

My cousin had one of the most fun aisles I’ve seen for an outdoor wedding. I don’t think she used an aisle runner but it woudln’t matter if you did. She got fake (and I don’t usually like fake) gerber daisy heads in different colors and lined her walk down the aisle with them. It was really beautiful.

@troubled: Good questions. I think my aunt realizes it will get dirty, but I should check with her. I’m getting married on a cliff, so the ground is pretty hard and remarkably even, so it should work out.
Lining the side does seem like the best option.

I like the idea of lining the side. Doing it with petals seems cheap and easy. And pretty.
