I am thinking pine decking.. It is relatively cheap , and there is always some selling offcuts for a relatively good price, I would check out your garden stores..

Hard call, you could get a shade cloth material? they come in various colours and people can walk on them and its cheap!!  (I know it doesnt sound appealing But it wouldnt hurt to get a square metre and try it out)

I don’t know what you could do about the grounds, but could you have a golfcart escort from the reception building to the start of your aisle?  It might be a little off-beat, but it would make for a fun entrance, I think, and be a lot quicker than you walking all that way in your dress.

shade cloth material is a type of plastic/material that can be used on verandas to block out the sun. However I have seen it on the ground. you can get it from local gardening stores.

I”ve had 2 friends get married at a golf course and had to walk a long distance like you will. The thing they did was sneak up about halfway down the asile way while the last person walked down the asil that way the people were watching that person walk and thus were looking toward the altar and not back in your direction.  Whoever is walking you down the asile could drive the cart or an usher.

For the ground, I would just rent you a red/white asile runner.  Then with your chairs and flowers in place you won’t notice the ground.

I would ask them for pictures of other events at the location to give you ideas

I wanted to 2nd the sails. They are really beautiful and modern. They can be a fun, colorful decor idea.

Oooh, I have an answer to how you wouldn’t be seen! Use Super giant golf umbrellas! Have two attendants walk in front of you with the umbrellas to shield you, and then when you get to the end, they pull away and reveal you!

As for prettying it up, I wouldn’t worry so much about where the chairs will be, but what about putting down some cloth for the aisle, then tons of flower petals on the cloth. They’ll stand out thanks to the color of the ground! Then, I would rent some dance floor flooring for the altar if you’re worried, and decorate that. Good luck!

My cousin just had a VERY similar problem she had a site that was remodeling they told her things would be one way, very rustic and charming and in the end they decided to cement over everything NOT rustic and charming at all, as a former event manager (10 years of it) I told her don’t worry just relax there are going to be chairs and bodies sitting in those chairs covering the majority of the cement. Focus on where the ceremony will actually take place because really that’s where everyone else will be focusing when they’ll be sitting there. I think you definitely need an aisle runner and maybe you might consider some foliage of some form  (small fruit trees or rose bushes) at the begining of your aisle this way the attention gets brought up to the same level as you the fabulous bride and acts as a frame (remember these can be GREAT keepsakes to be planted in your yard or your parents) but you can probably get away without the foliage just an idea.
