Aisle runner alternatives for outdoor weddings
On your wedding day you will stand at one end of an aisle, preparing to make the most important walk of your life. A walk to the end of that aisle into the arms of the man you love, the man you will spend the rest of your life with.We want that walk to be special, memorable and look gorgeous; something for everyone to remember. When planning your wedding décor don’t forget to think about your ceremony and wedding aisle look. The foundation of most ceremony aisles are aisle runners, they’ll set the stage as you take your important wedding walk. Traditional aisle runners are found in white or ivory or red, but let’s see how you could personalise your wedding day, shall we?
Petal Ribbons or Swirls to border the aisle
If you’re a bride who is looking for a stunning yet organic way to stylize her outdoor wedding ceremony, decorating your aisle with flower petals en lieu of an aisle runner might be the perfect option. The design possibilities are endless: whether you choose to use flower petals to line the perimeter of the aisle, to create a pattern, or to blanket the ground like snow, the result is sure to impress. Stick to a classic all-white palette or incorporate your color theme.

This carpet shows 3 shades of petals: white, soft pink and fuchsia.

If you want to make a statement, then extend the design over the total length and width of your aisle, using the colours of your wedding theme. Here are some more images for your inspiration!
What is the best way to choose colours for my petal carpet design?
Deciding on the colours you want to use is probably one of the first decisions you have to make. We include from 1 up to 3 colours in our designs, you can choose which.
Here are a few examples of colour graduations, the base colour is always a white petal which is then combined with 2 more colours of the same shade.
The picture below shows a ceremony set up at the Hotel Excelsior in Dubrovnik. The red carpet is used as a base colour on which 3 shades of petals can create a design. This mock up uses our “petal design 2” with petals in white, soft pink and fuchsia.
Here is another mock up of a ceremony set up at Lokrum island, where a white carpet is the base of the aisle on top of which you can see “petal design 12” in duo tone petals. Duo tone petals are petals where you have two colours combined in one petal.

How much does a petal swirl design or perimeter design for the aisle cost?
Any design we create for you is custom made. The cost will ultimately depend on the length of the design.
But let’s give you an example for an aisle which is 10 meters long, which is just about the average in Dubrovnik for most of the wedding venues here.
A swirl design OR a perimeter design (both ends of the aisle covered with a border of petals) will cost approx. 150 euro.
The design can be reused for the entrance at your dinner venue… to lead the way towards your table plan for example.
