Fake Rose petals

Recommended Posts

Had anyone used faked rose petals to line their aisle? I have seen these at both michaels and oriental trading and I am cheap (if you haven't noticed already) and I was just wondering how they looked compared to the real thing and if it was totally obvious??

I plan to use the silk rose petals, but I need to check with the resort to make sure its ok, since they are eco-friendly and I don't ant to have to be the one bothered to clean them up afterwards.

Do you have a link?? I just don't see the point in spending so much on the real thing.
I think they'll all be similar. I haven't compared prices on anything yet ... just searched online. Here are a few links...

1000 Silk Rose Petals Double Pink - Wedding Rose Petals

Silk Rose Petals from Petal Garden

Silk Rose Petals Discount Prices

There are also freeze dried rose petals, which would be eco-friendly, but I don't know anything about these (will they crunch when you walk on them .. maybe a stupid question but I truly don't know...)

Good question, Michelle! I was also thinking about getting them, but wasn't sure how that worked after the ceremony. I don't want them blowing all over the beach. I guess I should check with the resort. Have any other brides used them?

I am also looking into silk rose petals. I would love to use the freeze dried, but they are out of my budget.

 

Lizz.. I e-mailed Chandalyn today to see if they would allow silk or freexe-dried petals. I also asked her the approzimate length and width of the aisle, so I could figure out how many I need to order. I will let you know when I hear back from her. It is usually about 1 week.

Thanks Brittney! That's a huge help.

I bought silk rose petals off ebay yesterday to have thrown at us. I asked my WC if I could use rose petals. I should have specified they were silk. I guess I just thought someone would clean them up. I need to find out what happens because I don't want to be litering the beach.

 

You can't fly real ones right? I found a company to get cheap real ones, but I don't think we could pack them.

 

The ones i got aren't that real looking, but they are a mix of bright colors. I did see some really realistic looking ones on ebay.

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
