    I was worried about if they would get picked up. I think the resort cleans them up afterwards, but I'm sure they miss some. The freeze-dried are really nice and pretty decently priced, but again, I'm not sure they would get past customs

      Chandlyn told me they would clean them up afterwards, but they didn't get all of them. I think if you buy the aisle runner and have the petals sprinkled ontop they can just pick up the runner to get most of them but mine were in the sand.

      I would just put them in a checked piece of luggage and not worry about it. Customs entering Jamaica was not a big deal at all. I think everyone just breezes through for the most part. I have heard from some brides that had real touch flowers for their bouquets that they had issues at airport security b/c they look and feel real.

        I really think that the rose petal look will look very romantic.

        Thanks for all the info.

                I ordered 3000 total and used those for the aisle, toss petals for 15 guests, and then a few at the reception and it was plenty. And honestly I don't know if Chandlyn even used all of the petals that I gave her.

                  Since we didn't get the free bouquet Nikki changed it out to be a free bag of rose petals for the aisle... This is what one bag looked like.

                      I've heard that freeze dried petals are a good choice as they do not wilt or stain. Have any of you used these? if not what did you use?
                      I used regular silk petals bought them at Michael's and got I think around six boxes and there was more thatn enough. NO one even know that they were fake.
