    So Beaches charges an arm and a leg for flower petals for the aisle. She estimated that I would need two bags at $150 each. So I am going to bring my own. Now the problem is deciding on a color, or group of colors. I am going to bring silk petals, cuz who will ever know, and the resort will clean them up after. I didn't want to bring freeze-dried for fear of them getting confiscated at the airport and if not confiscated, I don't want to compromise anything in Jamaica by bringing plants. So, here is my inspiration picture and then some colors that I like. Suggestions on one color or a tri-color effect (whether in the same shade or mixing orange and pink)?

    I am partial to ORANGE, since those are the accents I will be wearing (shoes, purse, hair flower), but I also don't want orange overload...

      I know we talked yest. about it but I changed my colors. I think the citrus will pop. So I like: tangerine(or mango), citrus, and hot pink.

            I like the same combo as Jac...Tang, Citrus and hot Pink. But I also like that Tabasco color a lot...so I'd say also Tabasco, Hot Pink and Orange. . .I think it would look really "firey" that way.

                    Hmmm, I just found another site that is a way better price, but I would have to buy only one color - orange. For 4,000 petals from 200Petals.com - Home Page, it is $70. To get the equivilant on the original site I posted it's $90. Crap.

                      Oh, nevermind. If I buy a value pack from the orig site it would equal about the same amount. So it saves money to go with one color.

                      Do you guys think one color is cool? Or does it NEED multiple? My sister thinks one color, but so far, everyone on here listed a mix.
