    The Riu has rose petals bags... 25USD for a dozen roses worth of rose petals.
    Does anyone know how much this is? It doesnt sound like very much to me.

    I want to have a dense covering for petals for the aisle, some on the signing table, and a some on the dinner tables.

    Any suggestions? I feel like i am going to need like... 10 bags or more. has anyone done petals... and know how much to order? How many petals comes out of a dozen?

      Ikea has them for $5.99 a box...you can find them cheaper, but you just had to search.

        How long is the aisle that you are going to cover? Any idea, that may help determine how many you need?

          It will be a small ceremony, so i am thinking the aisle will be about 6 ft long, and 3 feet wide, covered in rose petals, plus extras for the signing table, and reception table. i guess i just have no idea what rose petals from a dozen roses looks like!

              This website has a petal quantity calculator that may help...

                My daughter is getting the EDR package which includes petals from 48 roses for $100. The WC told us that if we wanted a dense covering on the aisle we would need at least double that amount.

                  We will have about 30 people, and 8 of those will be standing at the front, so that aisle will be small. How long is the aisle going to be at your daughters wedding?

                    I really don't know the length. If you PM me your email, I'll send you a picture that we have.
