Anyone use freeze dried petals for the aisle

Recommended Posts

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

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

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!

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.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
