I think people who made fake flower petals have done so because lots of places wouldn’t allow real flower petals.  Does your venue allow real petals?

It would seem that real flower petals would be much more $$$.  

DollarTree bags hold #300 petals for $1.00 and many brides have stated that it has taken thousands of petals to make their aisle runners covered in petals.  

If flowers typically have say, five petals, you would need 60 flowers for #300 petals.

#60 flowers would cost wayyyyyy more than $1.

I’ve seen petals at Sams online, it was about 5000 petals for 85 bucks

According to the previous two bees, the fake flower petals would be more cost effective. To get 5000 Dollar store petals it would only take about $17, instead of $85 for real petals from Sam’s Club. You also may need a few more than 5000, depending on how long your aisle is.
