I used that website too! I will say, I had about 8 dozen roses worth of rose petals (so if each rose, say, has 50 petals, then I had 4800 petals). I had WAY too much, I think they only used a half-two thirds of the petals, and I also had our flower girl have some, had some on centerpieces, etc. Here was my aisle:

@Overjoyed:  Have you thought about freeze dried? I ordered the sample from petal garden and I was impressed with how they look and feel. They don’t wilt and get yucky outside and they’re biodegradable! Just a thought!

@Overjoyed:  def not like potpourri, the petals are larger and in tact, not small and flaky. They are dryer than regular petals, but if you open the box and sit it in the bathroom with you when you shower the day before the wedding, they will soften up a bit. You can order a free sample from the petal garden site, you pay shipping, but they send you a coupon you can use when you order. For an aisle runner, I think it’s a great idea.

Are brides using petals now instead of the traditional white aisle runner?

Also does anyone know if the aisle runners are hard to walk on?  Everyone is afraid of tripping on the darn thing.

So if we use petals in the church, who will clean them up after the ceremony.  We’ll be busy taking pictures etc.  Not sure what to do.

@Applehilluser rose petals are pretty common nowadays. I’ve never participated in a wedding that had a runner, however I would be worried about tripping… especially in front of all those guests. You may want to check with your church, some places don’t allow rose petals (real or fake).
