I had an outdoor wedding and we hung the cones from only the the 2 centers rows of chairs so 1: people were only throwing the rose petals to us and 2: to save $$ flower petals have to be plucked fresh so it saved about $500

My boss had cones with rose petals at her wedding, just hanging on the chairs that lined the aisle. I had an aisle seat and tossed the petals as they came back down the aisle… And ended up just chucking a ball of clumped up rose petals in her face! I don’t think she remembers (thank God!) but she kind of recoiled as they hit her chin, so I know she noticed at the time. So, my advice, make sure you put something in the cones that will disperse and fall prettily! The rose petals are a lovely idea, but they got packed down into the cone too firmly; I think if they had been placed in there loosely the toss would have gone as intended. I’ve been thinking about using dried lavender because I feel like the weight of each individual piece will work well.
