Wedding Decorations for Church Doors
Church wedding decorations often include hanging something special on the doors. Before you decide to do this, you must check with the church officiant to see if this is permitted.
You may be told that it is not allowed to drill holes or any hanging devices that will damage the doors.
Ask if it permissible to use a metal door hanger. They often come in black, silver or gold. If you wish, they are easily painted to match the decor of your wedding.
Non-Slip Aisle Runner
No matter whether you choose a disposable aisle runner, a cloth aisle runner or a personalized or monogram aisle runner - your first consideration should be that is is a non-slip aisle runner!
I do not trust the little pull strip of adhesive on the aisle runner itself. If there is carpeting, I secure the runner to the carpet with several corsage pins.
On a marble or hard floor, I may put down a couple spots of Florist Tac - a sticky adhesive that peels off easily after the ceremony without leaving any marks or residue.
Love the look of a monogrammed aisle runner - but cringe at the cost? Try creating your own with either rub-ons or iron ons. (Just be sure if you use an iron that you use a paper or cloth aisle runner - NOT a polyester or plastic type one!)
