Flower Petals

Recommended Posts

I bought artificial petals but they are really pretty terrible, with static and all. Doubt that it would work well. The resort is offering petals at a ridiculous price so I'm trying to find a way to get them cheaper at home. I've heard people mention freeze-dried petals. Where can I get that? Or do you ladies have other suggestions for petals?? I so appreciate your help wink.gif

I know this sound weird but have you thought about maybe putting them in the dryer on low with some fabric sheets? That might actually help with the static.

And I would just verify that you can take freeze dried petals to Aruba and that they'll pass customs as I know you can't take real flowers. Might actually border on the same.

Hope this helps.

I was worried about the freeze-dried petals being taken at customs as well...that would really make me sad...

 

I actually asked my WC is artificial petals were allowed, and she said YES!!! I was shocked...she also told me that a small bag was included from the florist at NO CHARGE!! Double shock!!! LOL...

 

Another option you can try is to spray them with a light mist of hair spray (spread them out, spray, toss them around and spray again).

Those are great ideas. The petals themselves are nice but they totally stick together. I will try the dryer with anti-static sheets and maybe spray. They will be handled by my nieces so I don't want to put too many chemicals on them... Maybe I should just suck it up and buy the real petals there if all else fails. Thanks :)

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
