Why not just smother your paths as well? Lay down a layer of newspaper and a good 6"-10" of raw wood chips. While your meadow establishes itself the newspaper and chips will break down and hopefully desirable natives will start to move in. As the path fills in and you walk on and eventually mow it those species that are suitable will thrive and others will die out (on the path). Just a thought might be cheaper in the long run to let nature do the work if you can wait that long.
