    I’ve never liked the look of dried rose petals. Dried roses? Fine. Rose petals? Not so much, but that’s my 2 cents. If someone steps on one or walks through them, they’re going to get crushed into whatever material they’re on.

    What about either contacting a florist to get a big bag of fresh petals or buying some really nice silk ones? Being on the ground, most people won’t know the difference. Dried up discolored or damaged ones they will notice.

    Mrs2b2014:  Nah, don’t do that. Can’t you just get a cheap dozen roses at the grocery store and use them? How many petals do you need? Where I live, I can get a dozen cheap roses at the grocery store for 15$-20$, and I live in Taxachusetts

    I used freeze dried rose petals and they looked great. They look fresh, not dry. I’ve never heard of anyone spreading dried rose petals on the aisle – freeze dried is standard, as far as I know.

    I think dried flowers look like dried flowers unless its typically seen dried. I’m hoping to use dried lavendar petals because people are used to see it dried. So hopefully it won’t be considered a “short cut” because its more normal. Plus it smells amazing!
