I never really thought about it before but on another post about horrible carpets in venues it made me think about the horrible bright swirly carpet at the hotel ballroom Im getting married in. Is anyone else using an aisle runner in an indoor location such as mine with the carpeting? I fear the carpet will be so busy that my dress and veil and train will just get lost. Am I being crazy?

    I don't think you're being crazy at all. It's a great idea to use an aisle runner. If the carpet is too busy the aisle runner will keep everyone's eyes on the ceremony.

    It actually should be fine. I’ve attended a wedding where they had one. Was not noticeable at all.

    I would definately say yes! As an interior designer the carpet is such a large space with the same design so the isle runner will break up the flooring and add to your dress being shown! Just something thin and plain!

    Make sure you check your venue contract. Our venue does not allow aisle runners

    Does your dress have a trancelucent train or a veil that extends past the train? If they let you have a aisle runner stick to a darker colored one in keeping with either your wedding colors or the colors on the floor. What you’ll be looking for is an aisle runner that acts both as a break up for the busy floor carpeting but also foreground contrasting and showing off your dress.

    I have a venue with ugly carpet also, however due to people being seated at their seats for the wedding we are not having a runner just because we feel it will be a tripping hazard and weird in the space. I would check with your venue before purchasing. I have seen red carpets that are nice and runners lined with rose petals on the sides. Happy Wedding Planning.
