Persian Rugs for Fall Brides

Aug 18, 2016

In Washington, DC where June is not quite the end of allergy season, but is definitely the beginning of humidity season, Fall is the most popular time to get married. So being a rug store, as fall approaches us, what else would we do than provide you with a great wedding planning tip?!? 🙂

If you’re reading this chances are you are either 1) my mother or 2) a real rug enthusiast. This means you have rugs in your home, and rugs don’t have to stay in your house for your/your child’s wedding. Drag them out and run them down your wedding aisle! This will add a beautiful bit of colorful flair to your ceremony, while also adding a touch of sentimentality because chances are a rug from your family home is the one you walked on for a large part of your life. Don’t believe me? Check out this gorgeous shot:

Having an outdoor wedding? No problem. They look great there too:

IThese photos are from my and my sister’s weddings. The rugs looked beautiful in the photos and just really tied everything together visually. Everyone commented on the rugs, and the guests who attended the outdoor wedding were especially surprised we put the rugs out on the “dirty ground.” Well, I hate to break it to you, but in a previous life these rugs were actually the wool on the backs of sheep that slept on the dirty ground, so they could handle it!

We most certainly did not need to have Persian rugs at our weddings ceremonies, but I’m glad we brought them, especially since we already have them. You too may have runners or even an area rug on which the bride and groom could stand for the ceremony. Put them to use! When you get your photos back from the photographer, you’ll be glad you did. Today these runners live at my house, and I love walking on them every day knowing that they have so much family history.
