    I was just informed that we will not be permitted to use silk petals due to our resorts environmental policy. In lieu of spending $40 per bag for fresh petals from the resort, I am trying to find the best source for freeze dried hydrangeas. Any suggestions?

      Here are some green ones. How many and what color do you need?

        Thank you:)
        I was planning on doing about 60 cups for scattered coverage on the aisle and another 10 for tossing, but its looking a bit steep for my budget.

          I looked into the petalgarden.com

          Towards the end of their pages they have 49.95 (maybe less) for some that are for aisle (not perfect). They are 60 cups I believe...then they have the organza bags and premium ones for tables and such!

          Hope that helps!

          You can order samples too...to test your premium colors!

            No, no! I am sorry it was flyboynaturals.com that had the flowers you are looking for! For some reason my brain went immediately to rose petals!

              Great Question! I am having a tough time with this as I am using freeze dried green and blue hydrangeas and am having a tough time finding them except for the Save-on-Craft site.

                I will definately check them out. Based on the added expense, I thinking that I would be willing to make some concessions and go with rose petals in an ivory/white/green mix. I found one website that carries both green and blue freeze dried roses for $16.95/8 cups ($99 for 64 cups), although I'm not sure if I'm sold on the green. I will definately order a sample to see what it looks like in person. Thanks for the suggestion!

                  Will you be able to bring freeze dried into MX? I thought they were pretty strict about bring real flowers in...

                    Freeze dried petals are real flowers. I've dropped a line to our wedding coordinator, I'm just waiting on a response to make sure that it is ok prior to placing the order. Hopefully she responds quickly so I can take advantage of the sale!

                      I was wondering how much rose petals were. But I think I like the hydrangeas better.

                      Thanks for the info.
