im doing this too!! our guest list has gotten to a ridiculous 330 (I HATE IT!). we’re expecting between 150-200 (i hope!). we’re making at least 175 to begin with and then making more depending on the rsvp cards we get. i would probably make at least 175 if not more.

the only exception i would make would be for small kids, maybe 2 and under? they really really wont care. But i think most adults will want to since its pretty traditional to be there as the bride & groom exit.

why are you having petal cones? is it for tossing when you are walking back up the aisle? if so why not just make enough for the the person on the end of the aisle in each row?

@anvil chick – its for when the bride and groom leave the reception (instead of rice, bird seed, bubbles, etc)

I was wondering about this too, but I did ribbon wands, not petal cones. I ended up making about 100 for 125 guests because I figure not everyone will stick around for the send off and sometimes guys don’t like to partake in flower throwing (or ribbon twirling).

I’m planning on cones as well.  I was estimating that only the first three or four people on each side of the aisle will have the reach.  Any further away, I think will just fall on the other guests, rather than on you.  If you want to be safe and make it five: 5 per side, 2 sides of the aisle, 10 rows would be 100 cones.

You could try taking a handful of petals and measure how far you can throw them, which is what I’ll do closer to the event.
