Plain white aisle runners are traditional, but here’s a new twist that you can also use at home.

Customize your Wedding Ceremony with a specialty aisle runner that is yours and yours alone. We’ve done this lately for a few of our brides and they love it!

It’s easy…almost any bolt of fabric will do. 54” to 60” wide is what you need.  Cut to length…no sewing at all.

And what do you do with the fabric when the Ceremony is over?

Spruce up a room in your house with drapery panels or throw pillows…the perfect reminder to that special day.  And as a added bonus, you will help the environment by re-purposing the materials which you can feel great about!
