As roses themselves are expensive, they usually are.  Sometimes florists agree to collect all their ‘fallen’ petals from the week prior.  Are you looking for dried ones?  Don’t know what you’re thinking of using them for but if you’re thinking confetti, be aware that they can stain your dress x

I can’t remember how much I paid but I didn’t think it was that much. If they are charging a lot check out costco floral or whole sale florists online. They can ship you petals easily.

I was wondering the same thing for lining the aisle in the ceremony. You can buy fake ones pretty inexpensively though.

i got 2 boxes of real rose petals for $50 which was plenty to do the isles with, even too much i think, from our flower shop. im sure they could work out a good deal for you!

I got 5 cups of fresh rose petals for my flower girl to throw. It cost $15 and they were fresh and beautiful plus she put some green ones in with the white we ordered to match my bouquet.

We are paying $75.00 for 3 boxes for a thick ailse cover from our florist. I’ve seen them sold in bulk online for much less.
