When our brides come in to chat about their ceremony décor, most request a traditional white aisle runner. Historically, white aisle runners date back to the days where guests were forced to travel through muddy, unpaved streets to attend a loved one’s wedding. Once inside the church, paths of muddy footprints were tracked across the floor. The last thing a bride in a white gown would want to do is walk down a muddied pathway, hence the white aisle runner. Groomsmen and the like would draw down the runner just before the bride was led down the aisle.
Well, times have changed and so should
your runner! I welcome you to become inspired by the collection of photos below. We created a gorgeous runner for a wedding we just did recently at the Chicago History Museum. I have also pulled a few from other various sites on the web (click on the photo for more information).
Remember, the sky is the limit!
