    Hey Brides!

    I was thinking about using freeze dried petals to line the aisle and was wondering if anyone had actual pictures from their wedding. But, more importantly, I need to know if it was a problem getting them thru customs. I tried to search online for an answer on if this was a restricted item for travel but couldn't find any clear answers. Any help/input would be appreciated as I have to order these soon.

    Thanks for coming to my rescue yet again ladies!

      Hi I used freeze dried petals for my aisle and it looked good! Only thing I would suggest is make sure the colors are right! Ordered fuchsia and it looked really dark... it wasn't a vibrant fuchsia. I know at my wedding location ( Moon Palace, Cancun) they would only let us use bio degradable petals, No fake ones!! And I had absolutely no problem going through customs with them! I hope that helps

        Thanks for the info! I am planning to bring Flyboy's to line the aisle.

          Thats who I used!!! it was great... try to get them when they have specials. I got some of my petals for half off. She said those went on sale but something must have been wrong with their website because when you went to check out every color was half off!! I guess I lucked out. hopefully the same happens to you

            Hmmm, never heard of this. Do they look different at all from fresh petals? And what's the draw -- are they cheaper?

              I used freeze dried orchids on my tables and had no problems getting them through customs. I got them on the Save On Crafts website. GREAT deals!

                I haven't seen freeze dried orchids on that website. Did you mean the preserved ones? They are gorgeous.

                I love your siggy pic by the way. Very cool affect.

                    Thanks! Those look great. Can I ask if they are actual flowers or are they like synthetic or real touch?

                    Opinion: Would it look dumb if I had orchid head down along the aisle as opposed to actual petals?

                      I think those are actually preserved (real) flowers. And no, I don't think it would look dumb at all if used orchids instead of just petals. Orchids are really pretty.
