      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 for the Aisle size to petals needed ratios!

            Those freeze dried orchids look great! definitely thinking about them for centerpieces

                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.
