Hi gals! I am Having a big wedding some people walking down 3 at a time. My planner suggested a 8ft wide aisle and 5 feet wide runner. I am Having a hard time finding a runner. Any help?

    I think the ones I've seen are all more narrow than that. Could you put two of them together side by side? Maybe even sew, pin, or glue the edges together so it lays out like one piece?

    I would skip it. A lot of places don't allow them because they are a tripping/slipping hazard. For instance, the church we got married in did not allow them. Instead, you could line the aisle with petals, lanterns, flower arrangements, etc.

    Hey Megan!

    I’m sure your planner has considered this, but perhaps you could measure out 8ft for a ‘trail’ aisle to ensure that it gives ample space for three abreast to walk comfortably.

    Do you have a specific color/style aisle runner in your head? What will go with the rest of your decor or your wedding theme?

    I would definitely recommend searching for a 5ft wide runner on Amazon.

    Depending on your venue and the flooring that is there already, you could consider earias’ suggestion of simply lining the aisle with petals or lanterns. It can be a beautiful look if you are finding it difficult to find the perfect runner!

    I have Found but it is extremely expensive. We are lining the isle with roses and candles I’m just worried the carpet will make it blah and ugly “/
