How Much Does an Aisle Runner Cost?

 
low costLow: Less than $100average costMedium: $100-$400high costHigh: $500-$2,000+
Typical costs:
  • On the low end, aisle runners typically cost less than $100 for a basic off-the-shelf runner made of plastic or cloth. For example, on Amazon.com, aisle runners[1] cost from less than $10 to more than $100. At David's Bridal, aisle runners[2] cost from a little over $30 to just under $100.
  • In the mid-range, aisle runners typically cost $100-$400 for a longer, wider runner made of deluxe fabric and personalized with a custom-designed monogram, names and/or a saying. For example, at I Do Originals, a 100' aisle runner with an ornate, personalized monogram[3] costs $205. Adding a verse of up to six words costs $115 extra for a 25' runner and up to $160 extra for a 100' runner. Each additional word costs $10. So, total cost could reach $365 or more.
  • On the high end, an aisle runner can cost $500-$2,000 or more for a runner in a custom length and deluxe fabric, embellished by hand. For example, at OriginalRunners.com, an aisle runner hand-decorated with Swarovski crystals[4] and custom cut to a specified length starts at $500. And aisle runners from Petal Happy[5] , embellished with faux rose petals, cost $500-$2,200 or more, depending on length and width.

What should be included:
  • Aisle runners typically come in a range of lengths and materials. Aisle runners are used to help keep the bride's and attendants' dresses clean and to decorate the aisle. Sometimes they are personalized with initials, names, quotes or scripture.
  • TheKnot.com offers a guide to the history of aisle runners[6] .
Additional costs:
  • Pins or carpet tape typically are needed to secure the aisle runner and prevent slipping and bunching. For example, at Amazon.com, double-sided carpet tape[7] costs about $5-$20.
  • If the wedding is outdoors, plywood or another hard material must be placed underneath the aisle runner. Otherwise, high heels could pierce the runner and dig into the soil, according to TheKnot.com.
Discounts:
  • At Tradesy.com[8] , used and purchased-but-unopened aisle runners are available for purchase at a discount from other brides.
Shopping for an aisle runner:
  • Aisle runners are optional, and they have advantages and disadvantages. They can help keep dresses clean and add visual appeal to the ceremony venue. However, they can be a tripping hazard. They also can get dirty or bunched, which can show up in photos.
  • TheKnot.com offers a photo gallery of aisle runner ideas[9] .
  • Amazon.com sells a wide variety of aisle runners[10] in various lengths, materials and styles. David's Bridal also sells aisle runners[11] , and so does The Wedding Outlet[12] . Discount and household stores such as Target also sell aisle runners[13] online.
