A new Irish company, WeddingRunner.com, has found a way to change your ceremony from ordinary to extraordinary: personalized, hand-woven wedding runners.
We have seen printed and hand-painted wedding runners for a while, but WeddingRunner.com takes the personalization a notch higher by actually weaving the couple’s names, initials and / or date right into the rug itself.
Runners are one meter wide and they are sold by the running foot; pricing is EUR 19 per foot. Because each runner is custom-made, delivery takes about 12 weeks. Runners with fully customized designs are available for an extra cost, and delivery takes about 20 weeks.
After the wedding, the rug can be cut and sewn for use as a doormat, wall hanging or keepsake to be handed down through the generations.
