It’s so sad.  Yet, so true.  Rose petal confetti can stain your – oh so pretty – wedding dress.  Of course, I’m only taking about real rose petals here. 

After our ceremony, we had our guests toss red and white rose petals as we walked down the aisle as husband and wife. <SIGH>  I was absolutely smitten with the idea.  How romantic, right?  When I see the video and pictures I’ll let you know if it WAS a good idea or not.  Decision still pending!  (Everything was such a blur, that I can’t say for sure!)

But if I had been wearing satin or silk, the red stains from the rose petals would’ve been noticeable.  But, since I was wearing something with more tulle, you couldn’t see the stains.  Well, unless you scrutinized my dress from top to bottom.  (And if anyone did, I didn’t notice and really, couldn’t have cared!)

And, we were sooo careful not to put the rose petals in a place where they would retain moisture.  But, it happened anyways.  So, despite how careful you are, there is the possibility that those pretty little petals will leave their not-so-pretty little fingerprints on that dress of yours. 

I would definitely recommend using silk rose petals if you’re planning to do rose petal confetti.  Yeah, your guests will know they’re not real, but they’re not going to care or remember.  And, it beats staining your dress – right before the reception!

I’m in LOVE with rose petal confetti and I’m happy to report that Masonic Temple allows it.  Apparently, some ceremony locations do not.  (So, before you go all out, be sure to touch base with your ceremony site contact.) 

Lookie what just came in!  These little bags are for the rose petal confetti guests will toss after the ceremony!  I ordered these gusseted glassine favor bags from Emmas Paperie.  I ordered 60 for $6 (that includes shipping).   Not bad, eh?

My mom has this sticker machine and we’re going to make a wedding monogram sticker to put on the bags. 

I’m going for this look.  I just love it!

If you’re looking for silk rose petals, here they are.  10,000 of them!  And, I’d definitely ask for less.  I’m shameless, but bartering and Craigslist are synonymous.  

Think about it, silk is less expensive and if you’re using it as confetti, it won’t stain your wedding gown.  (Yes, real rose petals can stain!)

10,000 silk rose petals – dark red/burgandy – Asking only $100!

I bought these rose petals for my wedding; however, we changed our colors! Petals are still sealed in bags – NEVER USED!

I also have the original receipt confirming the 10,000 rose petals!

There’s just something very romantic about the idea of being showered with rose petals as we walk down the aisle as Mr. & Mrs. ‘I Do.’    Ever since I saw this picture, I just ohh and ahhh over the idea.   I love it.   Love it so much that we’re borrowing the idea!  (And, yes, I’m borrowing the white rose-lined aisle!)  For the confetti, I think we might have red and white rose petals – It’s so pretty and colorful!  But really, not sure yet!  Thank you, pretty bride, whoever you might be.  And for those who know, me, roses fit nicely, don’t ya think?  (play on words!)

Ever since I relayed the rose petal revelation to “The Blogstalker” (aka: mom) she’s been perusing wedding blogs to learn more…  Here’s what we learned.

Don’t use the real thing when it comes to the darker-colored roses – if they’re moist, they can stain your gorgeous white dress!  (EEEeeek, the thought horrifies me!)  I will have no qualms with using fake-fakey petals.  They’re cost-effective, no potential to stain the dress and they’ll look just as gorgeous in pictures.

Oh, and, I read on the Incredible Brides blog that some venues do not allow real rose petals because they stain the floor and some may charge you a clean-up fee!  It’s best to call and ask.  Though, I’d rather beg for forgiveness and finaggle my way out of any fees! 

Now, we just have to figure out where to get them for a very COST-EFFECTIVE price and how to package them for the guests, which is the fun part!

Thank You, Masonic Temple Bride
