We’re using serape blankets as aisle runners in grass. im worried about the blankets moving around as people walk on them and the blankets folding over as my train drags along them. We were thinking of gluing weights to the bottom of the blanket, but then that’ll make the blankets basically useless after the wedding. Any ideas how we can weigh the blankets down on the day of our wedding and still be able to use the blankets afterwards?!

I’d go to the hardware store and grab some heavy metal washers. Because there is a hole in the middle you can just sew them on to the underside and then remove them after the wedding. I’d make sure you wash them with some dawn dish soap first, they are dirty and sometimes lightly grease to keep them from rusting.

1. I would block off the aisle with ribbon so all the guests have to enter from the side.
2. I would sew some little loops on the sides of the blankets. You can use hem tape or twill tape, then hold them in place with tent pegs.

You might consider using a light poundage fishing line to sew them on with, it’s cheap and would go thru that packet fine but it would also be strong enough to hold on the washers where I don’t think regular sewing thread would work. I’d take the fishing line and the blanket to the fabric store and let the people there find you the best needle to use.

I thought of golf tees as a possible method, but tent pegs are a good idea too!

If you want to use the washers, you could use dental floss, easier than fishing line, and strong.
