    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!

        I haven't got a clue!!!! LOL!

        ah, here we go (though this is for dried): Rose Petals 101

        Quantity recommendations for FREEZE DRIED:
        Tossing: 1/3 to 1/2 cup per guest

        Table decoration: 2 to 4 cups per table with centerpiece

        Aisle, per square foot: 8 cups for dense, 4 cups for moderate, 2 cups for light, 1 cup for scattered.

        Flower girl: 4 to 8 cups per flower girl

          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 you’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

              the more I think about it.... freeze-dried petals will be MUCH more environmentally-friendly. They're not really THAT much money either: Freeze Dried Rose Petals - Petal Garden $16.95 for 8 cups here. maybe I'll do that...

              but silk is $17.99 for 1,000 petals: Silk Rose Petals Value Packs

              hmmmmm decisions, decisions!

                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 do freeze dried if I only needed a small amount, but would need 1200 to do a dense aisle. That would get expensive really quickly.

                    I'm going to use the aisle runner and then just have the flower girls toss them. What kind do you think I should get??

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