1. Boho Beauty: Mixing and matching similarly patterned rugs to create an eclectic aisle is the perfect way to play up your boho style. Bonus: Rugs can also be a cozy buffer between your beautiful wedding shoes and a gravel aisle. (via Colleen Stepanian / Green Wedding Shoes)

4. Wedding in the Woods: Your exit will look *so* much better when you use a rug as your runway. Pair ’em with a lush outdoor space and florals everywhere for a super Pinterest-worthy affair. (via Jessica Janae / By Tezza)
5. Dessert Duo: Even if you’re not tying the knot in the middle of a desert, you can still create your own magic carpet ride. Be sure to hit up all your local antique stores and estate sales for a style that completes all of your Moroccan wedding dreams. (via Meghan Kay Sadler / Green Wedding Shoes)
6. Outdoor Ceremony: Use layered rugs to create a special place for the two of you to exchange your vows. The textiles will help distinguish the ceremony location from the rest of the lawn. (via Cara Robbins Studio / Ruffled)
8. Mid-Century Modern: Add a pop of color to your ceremony with a deep red rug that demands just as much attention as the bride walking on it. Then incorporate modern white decor and accents for a more minimalist vibe. (via Sposto Photography / Green Wedding Shoes)
10. Mix + Match: When you can’t choose just one rug, make a collage of your faves. Opt for colors in the same family of warm or cool tones, so they don’t clash. (via Taylor Lord Photography / Style Me Pretty)
11. Industrial Beauty: Modern brides should opt for a collection of white fringed rugs sprinkled down the aisle. It’s a gorg minimalist take on the trend that will look great in any space. (via Studio La Fleur / 100 Layer Cake)
