not sure how fake petals would work but the look like dried petals and those are relatively cheap on etsy.

I find that fake flowers, even petals fall into two groups.

Either they’re really, really good, or they’re really, really bad. It would depend on the quality you get.

Good quality fakes, maybe.

We used fake petals because I wasn’t allowed to use real ones at the venue because the oils could damage the floor (it was a historic building). Granted, I just had some scattered around, not nearly the amount in your picture, but I think it looked fine. Honestly, your guests won’t even notice probably. Although you can probably find dried rose petals online pretty cheaply

I agree, rose petals are either very good quality or very bad. If you did the cheap fabric ones I’m not sure it’d look great… and I think with the price you’d pay to get great fake ones you could buy real dried ones.

I’m far from an expert tho, so I’d recommend shopping around.

I am going for the exact same look, and have ordered fake ones off amazon. They were about the cheapest one I could find so they are not amazing quality, but when they are all bunched up together they look fine. Also, I don’t think anyone will be on the ground examining my rose petals anyways.
