It’s the defining moment of the wedding day: here comes the bride! Your grand entrance is one that should make a memorable impact—for your guests, the groom, and generations to come when they look at photos from the big day. Make your aisle stand out as something unique to your own wedding personality. Set a breathtaking scene for your walk down the aisle with these creative aisle runner ideas:
Flowers: you can really customize traditional flowers to reflect your personality. Whether you opt for bright petals all the way down the aisle, or boughs of greenery connecting pews, you’ll adore a floral-inspired entrance. Consider placing aisle cap bouquets at the end of each row of seats… or you can even affix a personalized “petal cup” to each row so guests can shower you in flowers as you come back down the aisle as newlyweds.
Quotes: incorporate a special quote or saying into your ceremony. Have a meaningful quote (or your own vows!) calligraphed on a custom paper or fabric aisle runner. Or, consider placing smaller quotes at the end of each row leading up to the altar.
Rugs: who says you can’t bring rugs outdoors? We love this look, and it’s an easy way to customize your aisle exactly to you. Layer several rugs for added textural depth, or seek a one-of-a-kind vintage runner that will leave your guests utterly wowed.
Custom designs: there are tons of talented artists, designers, and event visionaries who can craft one-of-a-kind runners made just for you. Consider your wedding theme and how you can play on that in the aisle décor. Whether you opt for an elegantly monogrammed runner or an out-of-the-box marbled painted runner, you can’t go wrong with a style that’s true to you.
Aisle runners are just one of the countless ways you can personalize a wedding venue. We love seeing what brides bring to the table at our historic wedding venue. Combining the history of our Victorian-era venue with your fresh ideas is what makes our job as venue directors so wonderful.
