Aisle take flowers, please!

Posted on July 12, 2014 by  Miss Creative Bride   //   Comment

I don’t know about you, but regular white runners sound a little too plain to me. There are so many different options you can go with when thinking about your aisle. If you’re creating very elaborate designs (lots of petals!) but you’re working under a tight budget, don’t worry, there are alternatives! Of course, using real petals would be wonderful!

An option would be to go with silk petals. These are usually sold in bulk and come in so many different colors and shades. My issue with these is that they are often too shiny and fake-looking…(I know they’re technically “artificial”, but there’s no need to make it obvious!) A creative way of downplaying the “fake-flower look” is to incorporate real petals! Simple as that! You take a bunch of silk petals, add a decent amount of real petals and voilà! The perfect floral aisle/runner.

Now, if you really want to stick to your guns and use a white runner/aisle, you can still create that clean slate look…with white petals! hehe

Check these out!

Running Down the Aisle

Posted on June 26, 2014 by  Miss Fashionable Bride   //   Comment

Aisle Runners can be one of the most forgotten about details within the ceremony planning process. I happen to know a bride who forgot about the runner until the day of the wedding (I will NOT mention your name!), but the runner is at the center of the ceremony (if you think about it). Runners were used to protect the hem of the bride’s gown from being dragged in the mud and dirt that some guests may have tracked in from outdoors. Granted, runners are now mostly used because of this old reasoning, it is still something I would not dare to forget or not included in my wedding ceremony. I know my runner will not be as intricate as these runners below but I will definitely use these as my inspiration.

Walk This Way

Posted on March 18, 2014 by  Miss Glitzy Bride   //   1 Comment

Have your thought about your wedding aisle look? It’s a very special moment as you walk down the aisle to meet the man you love, so don’t forget to think about your ceremony and wedding aisle decor. The traditional route is a plain white or ivory runner, but I want something a bit more romantic, stylish and eye-catching. How beautiful are these rose petal aisles by Naakiti Floral Design?

Who will you rely on to achieve this look? While flower girls are an adorable sight, more often than not there are too many petals in one spot or worse the petals never leave the basket as the timid child runs down the aisle.

My plan to ensure I have a petaled aisle to walk down is to leave the task to Petal Happy of NYC. Every petal carpet is handmade with life-like fabric petals that are securely attached to a fabric backing to create the effect of walking on a bed of rose petals. These pre-petaled aisle runners will set a romantic stage for any wedding!

Not only does it create a more streamlined look than haphazardly strewn loose petals, but it is also much easier to clean up! Don’t want a full bed of rose petals? Petal Happy offers a variety of pre-petaled aisle looks such as valley runners, cutouts, ribbons and gazebo carpets. How will you set the stage for a memorable walk down the aisle?

Custom Aisle Runners

Posted on June 9, 2013 by  Miss Passionate Bride   //   Comment

I came across a picture of an aisle runner that was customized with the bride and groom’s monogram. I thought this was a great idea to add another personal touch to the ceremony! You could have your names, the date, your monogram, or even a favorite quote. What would you put on your custom aisle runner?

Aisles with Style

Posted on November 14, 2012 by  Miss Detailed Bride   //   Comment

There are so many details that go into a wedding, and being the meticulous bride that I am, each one of these details is important to me.  I am always looking for ways to add personality and elegance to our ceremony and reception, all while tying everything into our black and white damask color scheme.

I believe that aisle runners can add the perfect extra touch of style to any ceremony location.  They can be used to designate the aisle in an outdoor ceremony, or dress-up the aisle for a traditional church wedding.  Typically, a bride will make her walk down a white runner, but many companies, such as the Original Runner Company, offer personalized aisle runners to match your themes and wedding colors.    Since so much thought has gone into how I will look as I walk down the aisle on my wedding day, shouldn’t I ensure that the aisle looks perfectly stylish as well?
