Has anybody used or thought about using freeze dried rose petels at the wedding. Either at the ceremony (Petal Toss) or deco on the table at the reception. Did you like it? Where’d you order them from? Was it worth it?

http://www.petalgarden.com offers free samples. The quality is pretty nice, and they have directions if you want to "soften" them.

a couple people in the comments mentioned they weren’t that good for petal tossing: http://www.weddingbee.com/2006/12/01/flyboy-freezedried-petals/
mrs. caterpiller’s petal cones: http://www.weddingbee.com/2006/08/22/petals-petals-everywhere/

This what my florist said about freeze dried vs fresh…
"Freeze petals are natural fresh petals that go thru a process where they get dried. They are less expensive than fresh and could be ordered in different colors because processing these petals allow them to be dyed as well. These are the typical petals you see on an aisle runner, at tables centerpieces even bathtubs in spas. I think these are better than fresh because fresh petals age very fast and the hot weather speeds that process. I hope this info helps."
