Hmmm… I had rose petals lining the aisle on either side, and they got kind of messed up. I think you have to factor in a couple things:

You’ll have to set it up beforehand. Is there another aisle for guests to get to their seats, so they don’t ruin it before you even come down?

Does your dress have a train?

I think that if you have an alternate aisle for the guests and warn the bridal party to tread lightly (no dragging their feet), it’ll be okay. Your train will pick up roses, but I don’t think it’ll be a huge deal. The picture on the left looks amazing and lovely.

You may want to diy this- get a plain aisle runner, TONS of faux rose petals, and a hot glue gun and glue them on, overlapping. It’ll take a long time, but it’ll give the beautiful effect you want and will be feet/dress-proof.

You can sprinkle loose petals on the sides so it won’t look so stiff, too. I don’t think anyone would know the difference.

I was having the same dilemia! In the end I decided to get a custom aisle runner made with our names and the date, but my plan was to order a premade petal runner. They look amazing and can be customized in your colors!
Here is an example and the link:
