    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

      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 :)
