Petals down the isle ???

Recommended Posts

We used silks from Petal Garden. I paid $68 including shipping for a mega pack. I calculated that it would be heavy coverage. However with the wind factor, it was more of a light coverage, but still looked amazing! They had to be put down MOMENTS before the ceremony because of the wind. Looking back, since they were so cheap I should have ordered double the petals. But it still looked pretty.

There are a couple pic of the silk petals in my review.

I just talked to 2g roses (freshroses.com). I confirmed that if I had them delivered to a friend prior to her leaving to come to JA. THey ssaid it would be fine... leave them in the box they are shipped in with a cold pack and you are good. THey are so much cheaper!

i love the idea of the petals on the isle. maybe in the days before your wedding assess the wind for yourself with the petals in mind, and you don't think it will work, prepare an alternative.

I didn't get married in Jamaica.. but I had petals on the beach for my wedding instead of a runner and they didn't blow away at all! I think they just stick better when it's directly into the sand instead of on a smooth surface. You would probably be okay :)

I am glad I read this because I was thinking about doing petals too.  Maybe I will just leave the isle empty.

I love this idea and didn't even consider that they may blow away on the beach.... I will definitely be looking into buying fake petals in bulk.

@@LauraM - do you know if BP allows fake petals? I thought I had read somewhere that they have to be real / freeze dried

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
