    beautyofdreams:  I think they are all lovely but there is no way I would pay that amont of money for them.

    How long an aisle do you anticipate having?  A 50 foot runner is $500.

    I think the white looks more realistic, the others colours are too bright and perfectly matched to pass for real and that makes it look cheap

     

    could you get away with adding some real flowers over the top of the fake one?

    beautyofdreams:  I only read the 1st page and don’t think I saw this question asked yet… Are you having any other floral or decoration along the aisle? I personal like the look of the real petals more. As PP’s said, it just looks fuller. 

    I’m so sad I don’t have a picture of the ceremony space all set up yet… but we got married on a wooden arbor and had the drapy curtains, and a large floral arrangement on either side. Along the aisle we had shepard hooks with gold mercury glass jars with pink/blush/ivory florals and then 6,000 ivory rose petals on the ground. No design, and just ivory so it wouldn’t compete with the floral hanging from the shepard hooks. I LOVED the petals, but think it still would have looked gorgeous without them.

    beautyofdreams:  I get the question… but are you wanting to do the runner in addition to any other floral or decoration along the aisle? Or would that be it? If you have something else, I’m trying to say the runner might be too much and take away from the look. Real or fake, nice or cheap looking, I’m not sure it fits with your venue.

    Since you can’t have loose floral, and after looking at your venue, what about laterns filled with floral? I think it might fit with the venue more than the petal runners. Something like this:

    Or this but not hanging and some greenery can be spilling out of the lanters, not breaking the loose petal rule

     I think that’s the only thing that makes the silk runner look artificial is that the petals are arranged in rows, so if you could ask for some extra petals and then just attach them randomly I think that would help a lot.
