Aisle Runner or Rose Petals
It looks like the ceremony will be outside with a lush green lawn leading up to a gazebo. I want to distinguish the aisle in some way. So would you suggest an aisle runner or rose petals. Right now i am leaning toward the petals cause i am just terrified i will trip on the runner or it will blow a bit or that my heal might go right through it. What would you guys suggest?

Rose petals!! Have an aisle runner outside is a definite trip hazard. Go with the rose petals!

I would also suggest petals. The wind can mess up the runner and help make you lose your footing. I guess the wind could mess up the petals as well, but they won't contribute to a fall.

My FH is doing a runner of fall leaves for my inside wedding.

My aisle is on grass also... I'm thinking rose petals, because fabric just doesn't lay on grass very nicely.

I'm doing rose petals :) I'm having an indoor ceremony.. so I could do whichever but for some reason I'm just not a fan of the aisle runner.

Petals... I would be too nervous about walking down a runner that's laying on the grass!! Plus, petals would be very pretty I think :)

Defintiely petals!
Every time I have seen an aisle runner on grass, it gets bunched up and becomes a trip hazard.
Also, like RobinRockr mentioned - petals would be very pretty. A bright color against the bright green grass would look great!

I'm going to make a rose petal aisle runner! it will be two strips of fabric (likely tulle) with petals glued on the top and I will have them lay out on either side of the aisle so I won't be walking on them. This might be a great option for you so your petals don't scatter away and you won't have a tripping hazard ;)
It is also then easy to clean up.
(would look similar to this)

I vote for petals, that's what I'm doing. I witnessed an outdoor wedding they forgot to put the runner down, ripped it( all while the bride was making her entrance) then the wind blew it....Yeah I'll pass on that

You also won't have guests walking on the petals and ripping them/getting them dirty.

Horrors! Imagine your nice white aisle runner with dirty footprints all over it. Yikes!

Another vote for petals. They're not hazardous, they're super elegant, they're less expensive, and they smell pretty!

I opted for lining the aisle. Use this link to calculate how many petals you will need based on the density of the petals and length of the aisle. It was a great tool for me.
