    What about doing rose petals on either side of the aisle rather than a cloth runner?

    I agree with Corgi but I also prefer the look of petals to an actual cloth runner. Maybe ask the event coordinator from your venue what brides normally do? If you’re set on having a cloth runner, I would have two, one on each of the straight sections of path. I think it might be too difficult to try to curve them around the sides.

    If you are going to have a runner, I would only have it on the straight part leading up to the gazebo.

    Could you start the runner after the fountain? 

    Could you get the same/similar fabric/colour of the runner and make giant cloth stepping stones? Two paths around the fountain and then start the second runner after the fountain?

    @Nola: This is probably not what you want to hear then, but I would skip the aisle runner altogether. I just don’t think it would be worth it. You and your wedding party run the risk of tripping on the walkway under the runner. The walkway looks uneven to me, so if you used a runner it might be difficult to walk in heels.

    If you are getting married at night, I would hang some lanterns on shepards hooks, and if you are getting married during the day, I would line the walkway up to the porch with vases of flowers.

     Skip the aisle runner. Most women who have aisle runners trip and fall over them. A runner will not work with the fountain or the uneven tiles.

    I’d skip the runner as well. The aisle looks beautiful without one.

    @noritake22: I agree! That aisle is beautiful, anyway- no one will notice the lack of an aisle runner.

    Can’t you just sweep up the rose petals? I’m sure a family member or friend would be willing to take on that job. I think rose petals would look great here!

    Try decorating the sides with pedestals… and forgo doing something on the ground… its beautiful enough to not need to cover it up
