I’d say about 4000.  I am planning to line the edges of my aisle with petals and have some in the middle, and give some to the flower girls to sprinkle.  I found a calculator somewhere where I can enter the lenght of my aisle and what I want and it told me about 4000 petals.

I actually ended up ordering 6000 petals because it was the smallest package on fiftyflowers.com and their price was better than paying for 4000 petals elsewhere.

Oh, I just saw that your aisle would be shorter, hmm, I’m not sure then and I can’t find that calculator at the moment.

I don’t think this will look weird without an aisle runner.  Is it on grass or something else?

I actually think it would look better without an aisle runner!

I would take the pic in with you to the florist and ask them – they might have a better idea!

DaisyBride that petal calculator sounds awesome – I am going to google it!

We ordered petals from http://www.fiftyflowers.com and they were wonderful to work with.  here is what their site says about petal coverage:

  • You will receive 13 bags when you order 6,000 Rose Petals, and 26 bags when you order 12,000 Rose Petals.
  • Each bag of Rose Petals contains no less than 8 cups and no more than 12 cups, holding 460 petals or 0.44 pounds.
  • One bag of Petals will completely cover an area 20 inches by 9 inches.
  • 6,000 Rose Petals is a minimum of 104 cups. 12,000 Rose Petals is a minimum of 208 cups.
