If so, where can you get these? I'm thinking maybe I should look into this since the real rose petals are so expensive.
Michaels & AC Moore have them. They also have 40% coupons, so I'll slowly be stocking up! wink.gif

Silk Rose Petals

Tossing: 100 petals per 6 to 8 guests

Table Decor: 100 petals per 1 to 2 tables decorated with centerpieces

The Aisle: 100 petals covers: 1 square foot (dense), 2 square feet (moderate coverage) or 5 square feet (light coverage, like a scattering of petals)

The Flower Girl: 100 to 200 petals, depending on how she tosses them and how long the aisle is.

 

Real or Freeze-Dried Rose Petals

Quantities vary, but on average youâ€ll find 25-35 petals per cup (as in a measuring cup) of real or freeze-dried rose petals. But since both real and freeze-dried petals vary in size, actual petals per cup can vary also.

 

Tossing: 1/3 to 1/2 cup per guest

Table Decor: 2 to 4 cups per table with centerpiece (depends on the density you want)

The Aisle: 8 cups per square foot (dense), 4 cups per square foot (moderate coverage), 2 cups per square foot (light coverage), 1 cup per square foot (scattered look)

The Flower Girl: 4 to 8 cups

I asked Chandalyn how wide the aisle was, but she did not say. I sent her another e-mail. Standard is 3 feet, but I want to make sure. I will let you know what I hear.

I would get the freeze dried if that is all you are going to use them for. They look like real petals.
