Rug Aisle Runner — Love It or Leave It? (VOTE)

Hi, loves! I have to say, I think we’ve officially seen it all. Have you heard of / seen this rug aisle runner trend? It’s interesting.

rug aisle runner

Oh, and I say interesting when I don’t know what to think.

rug aisle runner

I’ve really tried, you guys. But I just don’t get it. I just don’t like it. There, I said it. It’s not for me. Not to mention, it’s such a tripping hazard.

So, here’s what I think: aisle runners deserve to be grand. Elegant. Full-length. Throw rugs deserve to be thrown around. Messy. Unkempt. Sometimes they’re luxuriously soft, delightful for warming under your feet while sipping on a hot cup of tea. They’re also the first place I look for Geppetto and Shadow when and the first place they go when throw rugs are fresh outta the dryer. Maybe it’s just me, but I just don’t see this being a trend that’ll stick around: I like throw rugs as throw rugs, not aisle runners.

I do, however, admire those who think outside the box like this. Maybe I just haven’t seen THE ONE that’s enough to win me over.

And hey, every wedding trend isn’t for everyone. That’s what makes weddings so fun and diverse and unique.

Enough about me. I’m passing this on to our trusty readers:

What do YOU think?

VOTE: Rug Aisle Runner

So, what says you? Do you like a rug aisle runner or do you think throw rugs belong at home? I already told you what I think; now it’s time to hear from you!
