Rose petals are pretty cheap….just walk into any flower shop and ask for some. I think I paid like $10 for a whole bag and that was in a HCOLA. I can’t imagine you’d need more than like 2 bags of petals for what you want to do.

You can also find them at places like Michael’s, Hobby Lobby for cheap… and can use coupons!

I think you can do away with the runner and spend that money on petals or other great ideas for the grand walk!

Fake petals are esstially littering and terrible for the environment (Sorry!) Try real rose petals – you can order in bulk from Sams club or other online wholesalers..

As far as your aisle runner you could ask them if you could bring something to hold it down with, or have the outside chairs hold down the runner, and maybe make it wider than usual in that case…

You can still have an aisle runner on pavers if that is what you want. It does help if it is a heavier fabric so it doesn’t shift. It also lowers the risk of anyone tripping over either the edges or a fold in the runner.

You can use the traditional white runner and glue it to a base layer of canvas or another heavier fabric.

If you want petals on the sides, you can glue fake petals to narrow strips of aisle runner fabric.

Your vases will also help weigh down the runner.

I don’t think real flower petals are all that expensive. My florist gave us 2 bags of flower petals for free with our flower order. I agree with others – I’d do some research into real flower petals and buy a few bags. Then you won’t have to change your vision.
