We are doing the same thing at our wedding! I am going to go the paper cone route and do something similar to the picture attached. Hope this helps:)

We got enough for less than half the guests and left them on chairs in little mesh bags.  The DOC went around before the ceremony to make sure everyone knew what to do.   I ordered the petals online (freeze dried) and they had a pretty good guide of how much to order for the number of people…..

I’m using cones and leaving them on the seats with the program. We are having a small wedding so everyone will be able to throw- also I have seen people go outside the venue to do the wedding toss, this way= more room for people to toss. Also, I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend you get the freeze dried flowers so that they dont stain your dress.

We had a really small wedding, so we gave tossing petals to everyone, but I think having them for the the first couple aisle seats of each row would do. I also second the freeze-dried petals. If you want to make sure the guests know what to do, you can attach a note to the petals.

Here’s the note we had for ours:

I’m looking into doing this also! I’d be interested in what other people can provide on this subject!

My girlfriend had ribbons and tied the cones to the chairs. The light purple ribbon had another ribbon on the back that looped around the chair so they hung from all the corners of the chairs.

we had a stone holding down our programs, and no one threw them 🙂 

A basket with the cones would totally look fine, the question is whether or not the people would take them! and then you would need enough to have for everyone so that the people on the aisle have them for sure.  The other solution is after people are seated have your coordinator or friend hand them out to the people on the aisles- that would probably be the easiest and cheapest solution 🙂
