Who Walks On The Aisle Runner ?

The aisle runner is for the bride and the bridal party alone. In most instances the center aisle in the church is blocked off, often by satin ribbon to keep guests from walking down it. Guests are escorted from the outside of the two seating areas aside the aisle where the bridal party and bride will enter for the ceremony.There are two different occasions when the aisle runner can be rolled down the aisle: It can be done before any guests arrive and in that instance the center aisle is blocked off so that no one can walk on it. The satin ribbon, or whatever is being used to block the way, is removed just before the bridal party begins its procession. The second instance is when designated individuals (usually ushers) roll it out as an announcement that the attendants are about to enter the area and the ceremony is about to begin. 

History

Traditionally, a white aisle runner is used for a wedding, as it symbolizes a "pathway of purity." Historically, the first aisle runners were placed down as a protection for the bride and groom. It was believed that evil spirits lived under the church floor and that the aisle runner would protect the bride and groom as they walked down the aisle. Later, it was thought to merely create a clean area for the bride to walk upon. In early days, when roads were not paved, guests could track in a lot of dirt and mud.

Custom

It is customary to roll the aisle runner from the front (altar) of the church to the back, where the bride and her party will enter. For more informal weddings, when the ceremony may not be held in a church, the aisle runner helps to define the entrance of the bride.
