      I am sure you can, but there are some great resources on-line. You can even order from a company that will send you samples, so you can make sure it is exactly what you want. Just don't buy these until it is closer to your wedding, because they will lose color over time.

        hmmmmm decisions, decisions!
        I was just thinking about the environmentally-friendly part, how on earth would they clean up all those silk petals?

          Brittney - I have been looking different places online and found rose petals as cheap as $8.99 for 1000 on ebay. I definitely thought they'd be more expensive. Do you think we only need 1000 or so for the whole aisle?

          On another note, I've also found aisle runners for a lot less than what RIU is offering. I wonder if I brought my own, if I could use that instead? How long is the aisle?

            The aisle is 5 feet wide and about 15 yards long, so I am going to plan for 5x50. I am going to do a dense aisle, and that is 100 petals/square foot, so I will need 25,000 petals to do this. You will not need nearly this many if you are going for a scattered look. I will probably buy less than than that to begin with, just to make sure I would really need that many.

              Lizz, I am sure you can bring your own aisle runner. Is the one you found cloth? I don't know if it will hold up on the beach if it isn't. The cloth ones may weight too much to bring on your own too.

                I'll probably do a scattered look, so I guess maybe 10,000 petals? Does that sound right?

                  If I don't end up getting the rose petals, I'll just use the aisle runner RIU offers. It's probably easier than carrying more stuff down there!

                    This is what I found:

                    Aisle, coverage per 100 petals: 1 square foot for dense, 2 square feet for moderate, 5 square feet for light

                    I think 10,000 will be more than enough for a scattered aisle. According to this, you will only need 5,000 for light coverage.

                      Great! Thanks for finding that for me, Brittney. I'm clueless when it comes to things like this.
