Ok, I saw a painted blacktop somewhere on one of the wedding blogs. It was really pretty. It was washable paint, so it wasn’t permanent or anything, but it might work for what you want. I honestly wouldn’t worry about it since there will be a runner and tons of chairs. But, if you want, take a look around all the popular wedding blogs {SMP, Snippet and Ink, Brooklyn Bride} and you’ll find it I bet. GL!

How about adding a ton of potted plants/flowers outlining the seating and the aisle?  That may be enough to distract the eye from the blacktop.

How about Rangoli? It’s Indian sandpainting.  During Diwali, it’s a symbol of hospitality. 

There is also a legend relating to marriage and the rangoli –

<font size=”2″>Hindu Legend:  During the month of Maarkazhi, the Goddess Andal prayed to Lord Thirumal to marry her.  Her wish came true and others also began to pray to have the husband of their dreams.  During this month, unmarried women paint rangolis to welcome Lord Thirumal in hopes that they will have the same good fortune as Andal.</font>

It’s something different.  You could even put a little paragraph in your programs about it.  I’m sure you can find a tutorial online about how to make them.

Depends on the surface of the driveway but you could try vinyl lettering. Shop around but here’s an example… http://www.wonderfulgraffitiwedding.com/ – they’ll send you a sample to test.
