DIY Aisle Runners
Hello all! Today, I have some super fun ideas for personalizing your aisle runners. Many people over look the aisle as just the place to flank with flowers as you walk toward your new hubby, but recently, I've been seeing really creative and different ideas for utilizing this space to further showcase your style on your day! Check it out!
This aisle runner is DEFINITELY one of my favorites! Not only is it one of Culinary Crafts's beautiful bride's DIY projects, but it's whimsical and fun look was a PERFECT detail that showed off this couple's personality. Also, check out that backdrop wall! Another FABULOUS DIY project that really transformed our venue, The Tasting Room, to house this truly handmade event!
I am a fan of anything using reclaimed wood. The rustic beauty and various patina is truly a one-of-a-kind look that you can't find anywhere else. For this, and sheer creativity, I am in love with this reclaimed wood aisle runner. So beautiful and different!
The simple, yet bold, effect of this aisle runner/backdrop is a GORGEOUS and truly custom idea for those poets, romantics, or paper-philes. I love the idea of writing your vows, a special poem or verse, well wishes from guests, or even the story of the couple on this role of paper - but really, the sky's the limit on this one. Words, drawings, designs - anything can be a part of this type of DIY project. So cool!
How about creating a FABULOUS design using dyed sawdust? Yep, that's right! This awesome, intricate aisle runner is super colorful, modern, and trendy. Perfect for those stylish and cutting edge brides who want their day to be something totally out of the box.
This DIY aisle runner uses wallpaper - yes, wallpaper - to create this dramatic and eye-catching aisle runner. I love this idea for all of it's possibilities! Plus, how easy is it to get some awesome wallpaper and roll it out to make such a great detail? Love!
This last project is perfect for all of your natural beauty brides! Just a length of simple burlap with fabulous sewn ruffled edges and a hand painted monogram and you have a beautiful, custom detail that dresses up any ceremony. How pretty!
I hope these ideas inspire you to get creative with every part of your day! I love DIY projects, especially ones that you can do WAY ahead of time - so aisle runners are perfect! Remember, our tip is always to finish up any DIY projects at least 1-2 weeks before your big day. That way, you can relax and focus on celebrating! Happy planning everyone!
