Here's a guideline for rose petals:


Aisle, Path, Tabletop or Bed (To make a heart on a bed for a honeymoon suite) :

1 cup per square foot for light coverage.
1.5 cups per square foot for light plus coverage.
2 cups per square foot for moderate coverage.
3 cups per square foot for heavy coverage creating a "blanket" of rose petals.
Flower Girl Baskets: 4-6 cups per girl

Wedding Toss: 1/2 cup per guest if using cones or sachets.

Wedding Toss: 1 cup per guest if using a basket for guest to help themselves.

To decorate tables you will need from 1 to 3 cups per table. Reception tables: 5-6 cups per 60" round table For light scattering around just the center of the table use 3 cups or so.

Path & Bath: 20-60 cups to create a path of rose petals to a candle filled bathroom and to float rose petals in the bath.

Romantic Evening: 20-60 cups depending on the bed size & the coverage you are looking for...light to complete!


I bought 60 cups just because they were 1/2 price and I want to use them along the aisle and for tossing.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
