There are lots of ways to approach this, it can be a line added to the wedding program, a note on the petal cones, and a display near the open container of petals you have set out for people to grab or even a verbal announcement from the coordinator or ceremony official.

When the newlyweds walk your way, toss the petals and shout Hooray!
After the big kiss, be ready for this.
The newlyweds will smile as they walk down the aisle. That is your cue to toss up in the air, rose petals of love for this very happy pair.

Tip #8 - Check with the Venue About Clean Up Rules
Tip #9 - Keep it Eco-Friendly
Going green is easy with Flyboy Naturals eco-friendly, freeze-dried petals. We use wind energy for the processing of our freeze dried products through participation in Pacific Power’s Blue Sky Wind Power renewable energy program. We also participate in Eden’s Natural Choice, a certified green pest-control program, designed to control unwanted insects and pests while reducing the impact on the environment. Our petals are a product of the earth and can easily be returned to the soil through composting or reused and repurposed. Most venues have yard waste barrels and can dispose of in a community yard waste program for you. For ideas on how to reuse your petals see our two part blog post full of ideas here and here. We are proud to be a featured vendor of the Green Bride Guide!
