When planning the details of the ceremony, couples often envision the types of flowers that will decorate the altar, what kinds of chairs guests will sit on, and – of course – the service itself. However, one important aspect that may be lost in the shuffle is the aisle runner. Whether you choose to have an actual runner, fresh blooms, or a custom design such as a stage, what you step on as you walk down the aisle is an essential part of the décor.

To inspire brides and grooms saying "I do" in a number of various settings, we've combed through some of our favorite real weddings to reveal the types of ceremony aisles that are the most popular amongst our couples. Many duos choose to go with a classic white runner while others personalize it with their monogram, and other pairs choose to not have an aisle runner at all, but rather line the walkway with flower arrangements, lanterns, or candles in hurricane vases. While it may not be the first thing that comes to mind when planning your ceremony, the aisle is certainly a necessary component to consider since it will be beneath you on two of the most important walks of your life.
