Swags & Aisle Runners
Swags & Aisle Runners
Adding swags, an aisle runner and bows/ties really help transform any place into an elegant setting for a wedding or special event.
We have the best selection of colors and materials for aisle runners and swags.
We have those hard to find colors and are pleased to provide such a great variety at lower than industry standard prices. We have found your standard polyester runner in basic colors will run you about $135 for a 25 foot runner. Our 25 foot polyester runners are only $40.00. For $85.00, you can get a beautiful shade in velvet or beautiful taffeta. For $125, you can get our finest taffeta with a beautifully embroidered pattern.
Tip: Cloth runners are a wedding essential. Paper and felt runners can catch and tear easily. Especially crucial with outdoor events to prevent heels poking through the aisle or getting stuck. You'll love our great color selection.
Tip: Get the damage waiver. At 10% it is a bargain, eases the mind and will protect you from the most common damages to aisle runners and swags.
Polyester is an economical runner. It is a great alternative and upgrade to those white paper felt or plastic runners that can tear and blow easily in the wind.
Velvet, Crush Velvet and Satin runners come in great colors to get a richer look whether indoors or out.
Vinyl runners are a sleek and modern twist to the traditional red carpet used for that "bling" entrance. Not recommended for grass. Sequin runners also make for a Sparkling entrance to an event and are gaining in popularity.
For indoor events or patios, lighter materials, such as lace or chiffon, are reasonably priced options.
Pintuck taffeta and Silk Dupioni is gorgeous and adds a great texture to the aisle or entrance. This is our most requested runner.
Embroidered taffeta and Damask are beautiful materials to add pattern to the aisle. The results are stunning!
Fur adds both the elements of texture and interest.
This is the favorite runner selected by barefoot brides and party throwers.
If you plan on sprinkling the aisle with rose petals - use the same or a slightly darker shade of runner than the petals to give a bigger impact. If you use a white runner and pink petals - the petals can look sparse. (you usually need a lot of petals to get the look you envision) - you can achieve a similar look without the expense of 15 dozen roses by using a pink or champagne/taupe aisle runner and light pink petals. The light pink petals will give a beautiful accent and the pink or champagne runner will set the theme. Then use a champagne or light pink swag with champagne ties. Don't be afraid of color - you have a big area to make an impact. Coordinate your aisle runner with the swags and rented ties (bows/accents) down the aisle.
We offer matching swags in most of our colors and fabrics to complete the look.

Also rent our ties to tie in a bow or knot at the gathering points for an elegant presentation.
Your florist can make small bouquets and wrap our beautiful rented satin ties (our satin ties are thick and double-sided - better than ribbon for impact) around the stems and attach to the chairs/pews/or gathering points down the aisle. You could use any of our tie materials or colors that work with your theme.
Use pipe cleaners/chenille stems to gather the points - simply twist and attach to pews, chairs, pins, etc. Do not use pins - you will not get a good spread out swag.

You can purchase tulle from us. If you are looking for a particular color - send us a color/paint swatch and we can source it for you and send you a sample.
Tulle is a cost-effective alternative to rented swags - however it is very light and does not drape with the same effect as the heavier rented materials - so you may need to order twice as much as you would with any other material. Organza and chiffon are light and airy materials that really swag well.
Satin, Taffeta and silk are heavier materials that provide a bit more shine. For the ultimate sparkle or shine - use sequin or lame.
Velvet or Shag adds interesting texture. Embroidered Organza and lace is still one of the most popular swags for weddings (along with organza, taffeta and chiffon).
Embroidered Taffeta and Damask add an opulent effect - be sure to use a less textured runner with these patterned materials.
