1. Choose Your Petals:

Decide on the type and colour of petals you want to use. Our Rose petals are a popular choice due to their soft texture and romantic symbolism, but you can also use petals such as our hydrangeas, or even pick and mix the petals for a vibrant look.

2. Calculate the Quantity:

Determine how many petals you’ll need based on the length and width of the path you want to create. Consider the density of petals you desire for the desired effect. Our Petal Calculator can help you with this.

3. Select Your Pathway:

Choose the location where you want to create the petal path. It could be down the aisle for the ceremony, leading to the reception area, or any other area you want to highlight.

4. Prepare the Path:

Ensure that the surface of the path is clean and dry. If you’re creating the path indoors, consider laying down a cloth or runner to protect the floor beneath.

5. Lay Down a Base:

To help the petals stay in place and create a fuller look, consider laying down a base layer of greenery, such as ivy or fern leaves, along the path. This will also add texture and depth to the design.

6. Start Sprinkling:

Begin sprinkling the petals along the path, starting from one end and working your way to the other. You can create a continuous line of petals or scatter them in a more random pattern, depending on your preference.

7. Add Personal Touches:

Consider adding additional decorative elements to enhance the petal path, such as candles, lanterns, or floral arrangements at intervals along the way.

8. Coordinate with Venue Staff:

If you’re getting married at a venue, coordinate with the staff to ensure that the petal path is set up according to your specifications and that it remains undisturbed until the ceremony or reception begins.

9. Final Touches:

Just before the ceremony or reception starts, do a final check of the petal path to make any necessary adjustments and ensure that it looks perfect for your special day.
