    Hello,

    I am getting married at the Riu Palace in the Gazebo & wondering how many rose petals I am going to need to place down the aisle. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks!

          I think I ordered 4 bags for my wedding on the beach and they went all the way down the beach aisle and then there were some right before the actualy 'aisle' started.

            Do you have any idea how many you used?

              Not a clue - they were just spread out when I walked down the aisle...lol. I'm assuming they used what I ordered. This is the best picture I have of how many were actually in the sand.

                Erika, thanks!!! They are from my friend's wedding in Sept, I was a bridesmaid and my daughter was the flower girl :)

                Nanner- where did you order them from? the resort itself?

                  I order 3000 silk flowers and brought them. There was enough for the aisle and the reception tables. I order my flowers from florentna and she gave me a bag of free rose petals we used for hubby and I table.

                    Hello Natashak,

                    Your question is very good actually, many factors apply for this question... For example, you are getting married during the end of hurricane season in Cabo. If there is no wind which is more likely, then you only need around three bags of petals.

                    But if is a bit windy then four bags will be best. See the more petals you have on your aisle, the heavier they get and they won't fly off that easily. But if you only have a few petals scattered around then they will fly off very easily.

                    The Gazebo at the RIU Palace is very nice and your aisle will look very pretty with the petals.

                    Enjoy your planning.

                      So can you bring silk ones or do you have to order real ones from the resort?
