The aisle runner has a long history steeped in tradition, first as protection against evil spirits and then evolving into practical protection for the bride’s gown against mud and dirt. In the modern day and age the aisle runner is typically used to lend a ‘royal’ atmosphere to the wedding decor. They are available in a variety of colors, materials, sizes and can even be personalized with monograms, names, dates and more!
While they are a relatively common element in wedding decor and readily available, there is more to choosing your aisle runner than simply picking your color and being done with it. The first key point is where your wedding is going to be located; if it is indoors a standard aisle runner will usually work just fine. If instead you are getting married on a beach or in a park, there are more details that must be taken into consideration!
