I really want to do petals. I have no idea how much I would need though. Did you ladies do an aisle runner as well?

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.

Oh this is good information. I want to line the aisle too and never considered if customs will have a problem. Thanks for the info~

Thanks! I just want it for the aisle..super covered and for some tossing and flower girls. I'm going to estimate about 45-50 cups. I don't want them anywhere else lol no scattering on tables, nada.
