Here is the estimator that I used for my petals.

I also think that they’ll be fine on the aisle with the lantern. Since the weddig is earlier in the day,you can leave the tea lights out.

I’m using purple Moroccan lanterns hanging on black shepherds hooks down my aisle, and my ceremony is at 4:30pm. I’m going to use the brightest LED lights I can so that hopefully they will show a little bit. I bought my shepherds hooks from walmart a few days ago for $5.00 a piece. I also have silk rose petals but they are the wrong color so I’m not using them, otherwise I think that lanterns will look GREAT with petals down the aisle!! Totally do it!!!

All I have to say is beware of glass, and don’t use anything that can’t hold its own against a stiff breeze.

At a wedding I went to last summer, the wind (after the ceremony, thankfully) knocked over the framed poster-size program they had printed up for people to look at as they took their seats, and there was broken glass everywhere. The same breeze also took out some of the shepherd’s hooks and lanterns, and the entire wedding arch. They also had to straighten the aisle runner about 10,000 times before the bride actually got anywhere near the aisle because the smallest breeze would shift it.

So whatever you use, anchor it well!

We went to wedding with them during the day and I didn’t question it at all. However they were blue glass, so I don’t even remember if there was a candle lit in them or not.
