6 Custom Wedding-Aisle Runners That Will Spice Up Your Ceremony

More than two million people are married annually in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. If you're one of the many taking the leap, stand out from the pack with and make your wedding aisle more than just a pretty little pathway. Custom wedding aisle runners can transform the décor and add to the overall event ambiance. They take those first steps to a new level, making your ceremony stand out. How can you get creative and make your wedding aisle runners more than simple rugs?


Translating to "shaded" in French, ombre is a gradual transition from one color to another (from dark or bright to light). Choosing an ombre runner lets you incorporate more than just one wedding color into your runner. You have the option to start with a pristine ivory, slowly move into a light pink and eventually changing to a deep rose. Of course, you don't have to go with the ivory and pink color scheme. This works for blue, purple, gold, or any other color scheme you have in mind.

Floral Path

Whether you have an outdoor wedding or are inside the walls of your church, you can bring Mother Nature into your ceremony with a floral path. You can spread rose (or other types of flower) petals across the aisle or create a runner that's a bit more structured. One way to bring the petals inside is to go with a floral-print runner. If you're a DIY-er, you can glue thousands of petals to your runner surface.

Fine Feathers

What if you're not into flowers? That's okay. Make a similar type of runner using feathers. Use colorful feathers or go with a classic white. Spread them across the aisle or glue the edges down (if you're worried that they'll move too much).

Photo Finish

Turn your runner into a couple's photo album. Think of this idea along the same lines as a photo blanket. Get a specially printed piece of long thin fabric that features pictures of the two of you on your first date, enjoying a family vacation, or just being an adorable couple.

Poetic Prose

Walk down the aisle to your favorite poem—on your runner. Create a calligraphy-inspired custom wedding-aisle runner that features lines from your favorite work of literature, snippets from your vows, or a simple statement such as, "Love."

Stylishly Lined

Not every bride wants a wild, super-creative, or colorful wedding aisle runner. Sometimes you just want a simple statement at your feet. But that doesn't mean you can't add a pinch of style. Start with a basic runner and then add color coordinated rose petals, leaves, feathers, sequins, or full flowers on the sides.

Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life. From the dress that you wear to the rings that you give each other, every part of the ceremony is an important choice. The same is true for your wedding aisle runner. Make the trip to your soon-to-be spouse even more special with a custom design that shows off your creativity and "couple style."
