    a bride from the old forum (MRSMAIZE, i think thats right) used these:
    Silk Rose Petals & Freeze Dried Rose Petals - Petal Garden
    and i cant decide what i think about them- do you guys think they would look totally fake? has anyone used them?

      I'm actually using silk rose pedals. IMO in the pictures, no one will ever know and some fake ones look real. BUT with that said just check with dreams to make sure they don't have a problem with fake flowers. I'm only using them for our wedding dinner.

          Do you want to order the freeze dried or the silk ones?

            freeze dried- i ordered a free sample last night but it may take 2 weeks. how do they look? good enough to be on the tables

              those look cool, I'm curious to see if you like them nicole. I ordered 2000 silk rose petals on e-bay and they are awesome. They look real, and i'm just using them for the aisle and maybe on the tables, I haven't decided yet. They were $20. Just a thought.

                I wonder if they smell real? I like the way they look, but how much do loose petals (real) cost?

                  This is such a good idea and not that expensive. I think I would use them for aisle for ceremony and for table decorations with flowers...

                      I got a sample from them a few months ago and love them! We ordered a big case for the wedding. :) Here is a picture of my table trial using the freeze-dried petals:
