Yes, along with ribbons, crepe paper or tulle (whatever fits into your decorations) strung along the path, I would definitely put a runner down, especially since you have to go through a living room to get there. It would make the whole idea of not loitering sink in much more. It would also help protect the floor. 🙂

Wow, so many good ideas! I would get an outhouse as back-up at least. In the wedding planning book I used they specifically talked about disasters when relying on household plumbing, which is something I wouldn’t really know about but I prefer to learn from their mistakes.

Rope off the path and put signs on doors that staff may need access to (or may leave open as they come and go). A runner is a good idea, but may cause people to slip, so be extra careful. The ribbons/tulle can be really pretty and carry your theme through the house, while guiding your guests.

Close the doors or tie the rooms off with ribbon and having the bridal party remind people throughout the event should be good.  Make sure you have a plumber on call for any emergencies that might arise!!!
