I don’t remember at all where we got our petals (someone on here recommended them is all I remember) but they blew away anyway because it was super windy so I couldn’t really review them (although they looked pretty in the box).  We had an outdoor ceremony and I personally chose real petals because I figured they would be fine if I laid them out right before the ceremony.  I also didn’t want to risk a squirrel or a bird deciding to try to eat a fake petal plus we wouldn’t have had to really clean up our petals since they were real.

There have been a couple of bees on here who have down the fake petal thing. I totally plan to do that too because I live in a very windy location. I even plan to stake mine down with bits of cut up coat hanger lol.

I think real is better for outdoors.  I used fake at the last wedding I helped with, and they looked just fine, but it was indoors, so you could just pick up what we could and then vacuum up the rest, which obviously isn’t an option outdoors, and I’d hate to leave what’s essentially litter at that point behind in a garden.

Side note – make sure you double check that you’re even allowed to use anything like that.  I had a garden wedding, and any spreading of petals, real or fake, was a total no no.

I would think outside that real would be best since it’s not harmful to the environment. Would the venue even allow you to use fake ones? I don’t think either LOOK better, if it were indoors I’d say you can totally do fake ones. We are. Lol.
