Aisle runners are notorious tripping hazards and often times become completely trashed before the couple steps one foot on it, so here are some of my favorite alternatives!


Rugs are great for outdoor weddings because they are thicker and heaver which prevents shifting, tripping, and even acts as a barrier to keep your heels from stabbing into the grass!

A Chalk Mural

If your venue has cement floors, hire a chalk artist to draw a beautiful design down the aisle in whit chalk. This is a great way to add a custom touch to your wedding decor and is super easy to clean up!

Flower petals

Similar to the chalk, the designs are super customizable and still look beautiful after getting shuffled around from being walked on!


You literally can't go wrong with this option! keep the decorations to the side of the aisle and save a few dollars to spend elsewhere!
