Yes I have seen it done many times and it looks amazing. An adult will obviously be a lot more artistic than a 3-7 year old. I was just to a wedding Saturday where this was done.

Absolutely! Pre-sprinkled petals look so gorgeous and romantic. 🙂

I love the look but not the clean up!  I am making our initials out of fake rosepetals for the beginning of the aisle.

Just make sure to cordone off the aisle so guests don’t walk on it before the bridal party.  At a friend’s wedding the petals were all crushed and messed up before the wedding even began!

I had a flower girl! But she is a little shy and didn’t want to throw petals.. so she carried a kissing ball and we sprinkled flowers petal on the edge of the isle when we decorated.

I did for my wedding, and my flower girls held a sign instead of throwing petals. I say go for it!

I am pre-placing flower petals along the sides of our aisle, and hoping the flower girls don’t shy out of sprinkling down the middle during their walk down the aisle.

Pre-sprinkled is perfect!

I say go for it as well!  I was going to do this, have flower petals sprinkled in the gazebo where the ceremony was.  Unfortunately, it was windy.  My husband put the petals down for me and right before I came to walk down my long aisle, they blew away.  It made me very glad we went with dried real petals instead of silk ones so we didn’t have to chase them to clean them up.

Yes! Our ceremony will be outdoors and they don’t allow aisle runners, so we’re having them sprinkle the aisle ahead of time with white and ivory petals.  We’re still having flower girls, but they’re carrying little bouquets.

We don’t have a Flower Girl either (I have seen too many FG/RB that just get so nervous, I would rather they sit next to their parents and enjoy). We are doing a row of rose petals (red and yellow mixed) on each side of the aisle. I love the look!

I want to do this, it looks so pretty 🙂 How do the freeze dried petals look compared to real? cheaper would be nice 🙂

This is actually the only decorations I plan on having at the ceremony. Our building is very beautiful by itself, and since I wanted the keep it simple, that’s all I’ll do. I’m lining both sides of the isle with pink and white petals, quite a few of them.

Definitely have an adult do it ahead of time if you want the aisle to be full of petals :). Just a suggestion.. We attended a gorgeous elegant wedding where the wedding planner apparently forgot she was supposed to lay down the petals on the aisle. So about 5 minutes before the ceremony, she rushed in (it was an outdoor ceremony) and started dumping/scattering petals out of a huge cardboard box. Obviously at that point all of the guests were seated and it was very awkward. So if this is your plan, place them in a pretty basket or something. A small detail, but guests definitely noticed!!
