Ever since seeing the gorgeous patterned aisle runners on the bee I’ve wanted one for my ceremony and have been searching high and low for the right one.
We are having a nautical wedding of navy, white and gold aboard a yacht:
This is the ceremony space:
I like the look of the petals and the aisle runner and even the decor and all but I want to keep the nautical theme going and so I’ve arranged to have side aisles and drape rope along the edges of the chairs on each side of the center aisle…
And I have Tulle so I could do this:
but I like the look of the mirrored panels and the light they reflect:
We will have a table set up with white linen on top.
I LOVE the look of fancy fabrics but wanted to keep the nautical theme going so I’m looking for suggestions OR support of any of the following choices:
Nautical white with Navy Rope ($91):
Navy Damask on White ($85):
Ivory floral brocade ($54)
Please let me know what you think AND if you have any suggestsions I’d love to see them!

Hmmmm, I must be missing something.
We are talking aisle runners… and except for the individual pics # 1 and # 4, and the fabric swatches with pics # 6, # 7 and # 8…
I’m not really seeing aisle runner suggestions… and having a tough time visualizing
I at least am in need of more details.
In the meantime, I can suggest that the use of rope can be quite decorative…
GOOGLING – Nautical Rope – fills my mind’s eye with lots of inspiration = http://www.google.ca/search?q=nautical+rope&hl=en&rlz=1W1TSCA_enCA455&prmd=imvns&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=A0w8UKSpLcXK6gGqq4HYBw&sqi=2&ved=0CAgQ_AUoAQ&biw=1366&bih=612
Hope this helps,

@This Time Round: Those pics are my venue’s ceremony space…
The aisle runner options are the fabric ones with pricing next to them…
There would be 13 yards of that fabric… its 44″ wide so it will fill the aisle nicely.
this is an example of a patterned aisle runner:

In that case I’d go with something more simple… and less busy.
Flowers like in Individual Photo # 4.
OR something incorporating Nautical Rope… in a similar setting / use (aisle edging)
OR if you absolutely want to go with a physical “runner” then maybe something like this
PHOTO – This one features a Monogram within a Nautical Rope circle… or maybe you could find something that features anchors… or other nautical items.
Hope this helps,

@KimmySumShuga: I really like the navy damask on white, although it doesn’t scream “nautical” to me. Beautiful ceremony space, by the way!

I think the nautical white with navy rope would look great with the nautical rope. Since you are arranging to have side aisles draped with rope along the edges of the chairs on each side of the center aisle …I think it will look gorgeous!

I actually never thought of a patterned runner, maybe a monogram or gold edged onr….hmmm, thanks for the idea 🙂
and I voted for the nautical rop runner, cool theme!

I think less is sometimes more, so I voted for the last one. You are already on a yacht, so I don’t think it is necessary to remind everyone of that with the aisle runner.
