HELP>>> AISLE RUNNER
I know some types of material aisle runner can be very slippery. I really do not want to fall on my big day lol. What material should I get? Have you made your own? I was charged $165 for a personal aisle runner is that a good price or should I make it myself?

I'm planning to have carpet instead of the runner but I do think $165 is a bit much for a runner. I'm SURE you can make it yourself cheaper.

We are making our own. We are going to blow up our monogram, we bought the aisle running for $15 at Michael's (with a coupon) got some acrylic paint in our wedding colors for like $3 and some paint brushes in all different sizes and we are going to make our own. I agree with Jamila B....that seems a bit steep for an aisle runner.

Sorry no we haven't tried to walk on it yet :( we haven't started the project yet because we just bought the supply last weekend. But I understand your concern about slipping. That would not be a good look on your wedding day, lol

If you use the paper-like runners it should be fine (and maybe put pads under your shoes). The only reason I can think it's slippery is if it's plastic like a tablecloth.

I have an app on my phone with coupons to different stores so I just go to the store and show the coupon on my phone, but here is a site that you can print the coupons from and they have updated coupons every week. Good Luck :)

We're skipping the aisle runner actually....my dad is a pastor and he doesn't allow them in his church anymore. He has seen too many brides and bridesmaids get their heels stuck in them, or trip and bite the dust. :)

Sorry I know that's not your question. But aisle runners scare me. :) I'm klutzy enough, I don't need another reason to fall down!!

I just ordered mine from Amazon a couple of days ago. It was only $30 for 150 feet, so I think you should def shop around.

my ceremony location is a ballroom w/ marble floors I'm afraid I'd slip, I'm lining the aisle (relatively sparsely) with varying sizes of ivory balloons that will easily float away as I walk down the aisle.
